I apologize for the delay folks, I’m fighting some kind of flu bug.
Now, without further dudes:
Ladies and gentlemen, the public has spoken in the JimOnLight.com Fall Scholarship Contest! Â Congratulations to TEAM DULUTH, who takes first place by popular vote. Â First runner up is Johanna-Mai Vihalem who is currently in Paris, and the second runner up is Daphne Mir, everyone’s favorite budding LD out of SoCal.Â Â Congratulations to each of you who entered – each one of you is going to receive a 4Wall Entertainment t-shirt and a box of goodies from me.
Winners, I’ll be in touch shortly to get relevant information!
I’d like to take a moment to comment on and add a little surprise to the contest. Â I put the donated scholarship funds and my contribution to the pool out to vote by the JimOnLight.com Community as a whole. Â The JimOnLight.com readership is full of very intelligent and influential people who are all out there shaping and advancing the industries of light – researchers, designers, scientists, laser engineers, LED manufacturers and developers, production technicians, lighting directors, solid-state lighting scientists, opticians, doctors, physicists, and many other professionals read the blog each day. Â The reason that JimOnLight.com is able to do anything for the community is DUE TO the investment of the community into the future of our beloved industries. Â I trust the readership to choose. Â Far be it for me to take seven light lovers’ videos and make a decision on whose passionate plea for light was better than any other – I got warmth from each and every video. Â I am inspired by each and every one of you. Â So much, in fact, that I am going to give each of you a post on JimOnLight.com for your video over the next month.
I want to add one more mention to the contest – after watching all of these videos, I felt like I needed to recognize one video for its production and creativity. Â I enjoyed every one of these videos – and I plan on having more of these contests to give back to the lighting industries. Â Overall, on a production aspect, I want to recognize Nik Robalino‘s video for being the most well produced. Â Nik, please tell your crew that I think they did an excellent job. Â I’m working on putting something special together for you and your crew.
Contest participants – I’ll be in touch shortly to get addresses and all of that so I can send you each some good stuff. Â Great job to everyone – you should be ridiculously proud! Â Thank you to the JimOnLight.com Community for participating. Â More to come!
