Hey everyone! Thank you for your patience while we determined the winners of our 'Design a Vive Accessory' contest.
We were extremely impressed with the level of thought, innovation and dedication that went into your accessory ideas. We're sure some might even inspire real world creations. With a community this engaged and smart, we're looking forward to future displays of creativity!
Our delay in announcing winners was due to a thorough vetting of the votes cast. It became clear some entries had votes cast by mass-created groups of accounts. We examined thousands of different entries, votes and accounts, then cross-checked against a variety of criteria to determine final winners.
There was a lot of passionate debate and engaging commentary around many of the winners, but our final choices were based on legitimate votes that were cast. Our decision on winners is final. Thank you to everyone who entered!
Our final winners are, in no specific order:
Congratulations to our winners, and thanks again to everyone who entered. I'll be reaching out to the winners via PM for more details.

Totally missed this post, was watching with anticipation regularly. Wish I had time to have gotten my submission in earlier! Oh well. Congrats to the winners with the most votes.

Hey, well done everyone!
This was not a particular problem in this contest (the top voted post entered extremly late), but I would like to post the following for futute contests:
I'd suggest seperating the voting phase from the entering phase. I think this would promote better quality more than early entering and therefore take away the pressure to create something quickly (at least I had that).
Other than that, good job running the contest and congrats to the winners

I was actually surprised when friends and family could not vote a day after I submitted my entry. The rules made it sound as if votes could be cast throughout until the winners were announced, or after the 30/31st or whatever. Oh well, got one days worth in I guess .
