And with Midnight, May 20th, having passed, this post will be closed until the results are posted.

I'll give the submitted videos to the judges and await their decision.

When that's done, we'll post the results here, and I'll add the videos.

Thanks to those who participated, and thanks ESPECIALLY to EEguy for sponsoring the contest! :)

The videos have been posted for the judging panel to retrieve.

We'll await their decision, and then announce the results.

Once it's settled the videos will made available for downloading, and placed in a Gallery for online viewing by those who prefer to see them that way.

Thank you all!

And the Winner is....


going to be announced by EEguy. :whistle:

Stay tuned for his announcement!

The competition was VERY close, and I do NOT envy the Judges task of having to pick one clear winner.

In the meantime (just to soothe your impatience) I've opened the Download Category where the videos are stored, and you can view the 6 received entries.

Many thanks to EEguy and nichropulse for Judging, and offering a nice prize for this competition. It was a pleasure being the intermediary. After all, *I* got to see the entries first. ;)

TS, a question, will there be more competitions like this in the future?
Does this unit have a soul?

There is a new Fall competition for those of you who would like another chance. We have decided to conduct it directly on YouTube. To increase interest, we specified existing footage and will now include a broad range of pyrotechnic/e-match related application. Simply visit the NichroPulse YouTube channel for details.
