Caroline Wozniaki Award

Nominees:
Andreas * Corpsucle * 5ean * Shafanovic




With so much new talent coming to the game this year this must have been one of the hardest to vote on. However one person must win. The best newcomer to GMT this year is:

Re: [GMT] Awards Presentation

Dinara Safina Award
(Most improved)


Nominees:
Zvonarevarulz * Jovana * Medina




Improving your graphics is one of the main benefits of the game, and many people have improved so much. If you compare the French Open to Graphic Maker of the year it's apparent. The person people feel has improved the most:

Re: [GMT] Awards Presentation

Anyone but Larry Scott Award
(Best Tournament Manager)


Nominees:
Maryam (USO Doubles)
Andreas (YEC)
Poiree (Olympics)




Maybe this person should give Larry a few tips? A good manager is essential for a good tournament, a lot of work and time goes into making everything run smoothly. They are all deserving winners however the one you've nominated as your favourite runner or 08 is:

Poiree (Olympics)
I know she puts a lot of time to making sure everything goes right, thank you

'Very organized and puts a lot of time and effort through!'
'She was really strict with the deadline'

Re: [GMT] Awards Presentation

Billy Jean King Award
(Contribution to the game)


Nominees:
Gigi * Andreas * Corpuscle * Tzar




There is commitment to the game, and then there are those that go above and beyond what is expect, whether it's running duels of always being around to help. They bring a lot to the game and it's definately appreciated. It was close but the perosn voted for the 2008 contribution award is:
x

'I always see him in the graphics thread or GMT'
'I think he deserves this award '
'Always enthusiastic and willing to run a duel, great asset to the game'

This was so close, with 2 people neck and neck right to the end, but a vote in the last mintute decided it for the winner. The person you don't want to draw in the future is:
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
x

with 8 votes
x
x
x
x
x
x

Re: [GMT] Awards Presentation

Marion Bartoli Award
(Most Original effects)


Nominees:
$uricate
Iine
Kai
Heart





These people are not afraid to try something different and take risks, whether it pays off or not they come up with some of the most interesting graphics in the game. This was another incredibly close affair however the winner is:
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
with 5 votes
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
x

Kaii and Heart

Ironically the voter who took the most potential award away from Kris gave her this award instead

'Kai. - I'm surprised by the things he can come up with!'

Re: [GMT] Awards Presentation

Bath Mattel Award
(Best Colourer)


Nominees:
Nikkie * Niya * Poiree * Enya




Colouring is one of the most important aspects of making a graphic and also one of the hardest to get right. I have no trouble saying this was the most competative and closest award this year. However the award goes to:
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
with 4 votes
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
Poiree, Nikkie and Niya

And Enya got 3 votes - if she had got 1 more it would have been a 4 way tie

'Poiree - very unique and artistic, no one else can come up with it.'
'Nikkie-tough decision between nikkie & poiree but i think nikkie has the most unique coloring of the bunch.. '



Vera Zvonareva * Ana Ivanović * Li Na * Laura Robson ......

Re: [GMT] Awards Presentation

Jelena Jankovic Award
(Best Blending)


Nominees:
5ean * Niya * Medina * Gigi




Blending is perhaps the most impressive skill Graphics Makers commonly use, frequently we are requested to blend hopelessly difficult pictures together. The person voters have deicded does it best is:
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
with 6 votes
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
x
x

Niya and 5ean

Another tie! Niya seems to enjoy sharing!

'Niya - Very smooth and no flaws at all'
'Niya- a great graphic maker and she is also a terrific blender..she made this banner once and it was really '
