Voted for phanan. It's a very good playlist.

I will say that the two playlists of the competition that made the biggest impression on me are LJT's and LemonMelon's.

Voted for Lara.

Personal faves of the tourney, would probably be Tourist's and AtomicBono's.

Are there going to be special awards like last time, best theme etc?

There was some discussion regarding this a few days ago (in the Superthread over in OOC), and Axver was looking into possibly starting a thread for it. I'm not sure if a decision has been made yet.

Everyone, feel free to post in this thread with your thoughts on this. If enough people wish to do it, it would be worthwhile.
