Congratulations to our three winners!

Hello again, everyone. Your neighborhood community moderator Zero here. The voting for our Kingdom Hearts art contest is over and the winners have been selected!

The voting turned into a very close three-way battle. It really went down to the wire. I decided to reward all three entries because it was just so close. It only seemed fair, and I didn’t want to break someone’s heart for coming up a few votes short. I really wish everyone who entered could have won a copy.

Without further ado, the winners are:

  1. L34N4 (#6)
  2. AzzyFox (#3)
  3. Gael (#15)

The winners will each get a copy of Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix.

I also picked two comments at random from the voting thread. The following have won $20 in PlayStation Network credit:

  1. Yuri Meitzen
  2. Martian Wong

If you are a winner, I will be contacting you via the e-mail zero [at] gematsu [dot] com. Feel free to e-mail me or contact me on Twitter if you have any questions.

To all the winners, congratulations! To everyone who entered the contest, thank you! To everyone who voted, thank you! And if your new to Gematsu, please, feel free to stick around and join our community. If you need a place to introduce yourself, check out our weekly Open Forum. You can discuss anything there, and we are always looking for new users to join in on the discussion!

Thanks, everyone.

      Thanks. :)

      • Yuri Meitzen

        no prob ^^ just did =P

    • Martian Wong

      I guess we have something in common, first time winning something from a random give away contest.

    • Martian Wong

      Hey did you get your code yet?

      • Yuri Meitzen

        nope just the e-mail from zero asking wich region xD, relax… he must be busy making preparations to send the KH 1.5 copies and etc… when everything is done he’ll focus on the codes ^^

        • Martian Wong

          Me too, haha. I was kinda worried that somehow he might not get our emails..But I do wonder one thing, at this point anybody can claim that they are Martian Wong or Yuri Meitzen and get the code? I mean how does he prove that it is us who send him the email

          • Zero

            I haven’t received any fake emails or anything. I got home late from work. I will be contacting you both again very soon. ^^

            • Yuri Meitzen

              there you go xDDD but if zero had gotten any fake emails… let’s say 4 e-mails from diferent people i guess he would just ask our e-mails here xD

              • Zero

                I wouldn’t send them out before checking. =)

                Check your email now. Thanks.

      • Zero

        Check your email. =)

    Congrats guys!

  • Locksus

    Zero, it was a very brilliant idea to start having contests like these!

    I think they really keep the community alive and invested to Gematsu.
    Keep it up, man!

    • Zero

      Thanks so much. That’s my goal with these contest. Well, that is one of my goals. I also enjoy giving back to the community, helping bring something positive to someone’s life. etc.

    That’s very kind of you to give the second runner up a copy of the game as well. =)

    • Zero

      Thanks and congrats.

      • AzzyFox

        Oh, Zero, did you receive my reply e-mail verifying my contact info? My e-mail doesn’t send sometimes.

        • Zero

          Yep. Sorry I didn’t reply. I’ve been super busy. I’m looking to get the game in the mail asap.

          • AzzyFox

            No worries, bro. =)

  • fallen

    Great decision, Zero, to reward the top three! First and second place were separated by only seven votes!

    Will we get to know the names of the artists behind the rest of the pieces? They could be looking at some new fans!

    I’m looking forward to more community contests like this~

    • Zero

      Thanks. I used the nicknames above by request of the artists. I will be pointing them to this thread. If they feel comfortable with sharing, I’m sure they will make a post. =)

  • Solomon_Kano

    Congrats, folks.

  • Kobracon

    Hey congrats, guys!

  • AdamBoy64

    Good job Zero and Gematsu for providing the prizes, and for putting this contest on.

    • Zero

  • DrForbidden

    Congratulations to all winners!

    Unfortunately, I missed the voting. :(

  • Gael Summers

    Congratulations to the other winners!

    I’m really glad that I was able to get so much support as well :)

  • Martian Wong

    I spent that 20 dollars that I got from Zero to get myself God Eater Burst. I played on PSP before, but since the upgrade to Vita. I stopped playing it. Part of the reason I brought God Eater Burst is I want to enjoy the game again and hopefully that will boost the chance of God Eater 2 coming the US a little bit higher….
