SPG CD Giveaway Contest Winners

I recently celebrated reaching 20,000 subscribers in my Youtube channel by hosting a CD giveaway Photo submission contest to my fans. The rules are simple, take a photo of any String Player Gamer video, on your gadget or a PC/Mac. But you must be creative, video game paraphernalia, costumes and what have yous, are encouraged. You may include yourself in the photo but only if you want to. I’m so glad to have such creative subscribers with really wonderful submissions. But there can be only 3 winners, and 2 runner-ups!

All winners are decided solely by myself, there is no secret committee. Just me. I chose the winners based on creativity of the photo composition,  if it pleases my eyes and makes me happy when I see it, or just blows my mind, and most importantly, if the entry followed the rules.

The winners of the SPG 2014 CD giveaway contest are below. But first, here are all the submissions in no particular order, with my reactions!

    I’m glad you like the mouse. It was an electronics project I chose to work on. The case is from an old Logitech serial mouse that was in a box of free stuff at a local computer museum, but I have replaced the inside with a modern optical mouse and wired everything up so I can use it as a regular, awesome looking USB mouse. It retains most of the functionality of a modern mouse, apart from the scroll wheel, but who cares about that when it looks this cool? If you have any interest in electronics they are great fun to make.
