Full Results
Tristan - 6
Matt - 4
SnowMonster - 4
Dallas - 0

--------------------------------------------------

The winner of the Return of the Roadrunners Competition was Bastian S!

Here are the full voting results
--------------------------------------------------

All of March's COTW votes have been completed, so lets find out who HJC voters will choose from those artists to move onto the 1st Quarter Vote. It's time for the COTY-March vote! Those that are entered are listed on the side of the page in the red banner. You can click that banner to see the concepts or go to the COTY 2014 page. Voting ends on Friday.

--------------------------------------------------

The new COTW nominees have been listed for the week of March 31 to April 6.

For the second week in a row I had to use the rule where I ended up selecting those concepts that move into the COTW. This is done because there were six concepts properly nominated. Add Bastian's comp winner and we have seven entries in COTW. Anymore than five concepts and I have to jump in to trim down the list.

This is why it is important to nominate a concept for COTW that you like, even if it has already been nominated (and seconded). I added the concepts that had been thirded and fourthed into the COTW vote (plus Bastian's comp winner).

The nominees are listed in the black banner, as always. You can see the concepts by clicking on that banner or by going to the CONCEPT OF THE WEEK tab. Voting for this also ends on Friday.

You may remember several months ago when HJC held a contest to design an Autism awareness jersey for Colgate University women's hockey team. The winner would have their jersey made and worn by the team for their annual Autism Awareness Game. S2dio won that competition and recently received his jersey. Take a look below.
 

The game was played on Friday, January 31 and Colgate defeated Brown 3-2 in OT. You can take a look at some photos here.

In case you missed it, check out the HJC Design Blog for my piece on the Calgary Hitmen 20th anniversary jersey as well as some other topics.

Sorry everyone, no competition this week. I have one prepared, but I didn't have the time to get everything together for it. We'll start it next week. Want a hint? It has to do with an alternate jersey released in the 2000's. That is all, no more hints!

Voter participation was pretty good this past week. Thank you to everyone who took the time to email in a vote. Most of you did it when you simply emailed in your concept. Some of you took the time and actually sent in just a vote. Again, thanks!

Lets do it again this week. You're reading this right now, so take a 30 second break and send in your COTY-March vote and your COTW vote. You'll feel great after doing it.

COTY-March vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
COTW Mar 31-Apr 6 vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)

Wild guess here...Dallas's alternate "bull" jersey?

Return of the fire-breathing horse? I'm still trying to recover from that.
