OK CrackBerry Nation and finalists in our BlackBerry Super Fanboy Contest. Here it is. The moment of truth. The five finalist videos were absolutely awesome and the judging panel had a heck of a time trying to figure out which one was the best and most deserving of the grand prize. What made it exceedlngly difficult was that it seemed every judge had a different favorite. My favorite was the Go Hard for the Brand I Love BlackBerry Rap. Adam's favorite was Inceptionally Fast. Bla1ze thought BlackBerry, My Everlasting Light should win. Using a BlackBerry while SkyDiving was my mom's favorite, and Miss CrackBerry loved BlackBerry Adrenaline.  

But in the end we had to make a decision.... remember the prizes for this contest are pretty epic:

GRAND PRIZE: A trip to San Francisco to attend the BlackBerry Developer Conference (October 18th to 20th - includes airfare for up to two individuals*, 3 Nights Stay at the Marriott Conference Hotel and 2 BlackBerry DevCon event passes and dinner out one night with the CrackBerry team); a BlackBerry PlayBook + BlackBerry 7 Smartphone of choice; $100 BlackBerry Accessories from ShopCrackBerry.com and a CrackBerry Kevin custom designed BlackBerry Super FanBoy T-Shirt!

4 RUNNER UP FINALIST BLACKBERRY SUPER FANBOY PRIZE PACKS: $100 in free BlackBerry Accessories from ShopCrackBerry.com, an autographed copy of CrackBerry: True Tales of BlackBerry Use & Abuse and a CrackBerry Kevin custom designed BlackBerry Super Fanboy T-Shirt!

Crazy awesome prizes, right? So who's getting declared as CrackBerry's BlackBerry Super Fanboy Contest winner?!  Keep reading to find out......

 

and the winner is....

EVERYBODY!!!

YEP, that's right. ALL FIVE FINALISTS are being declared winners here. We just couldn't decide which video was the best of the bunch, so we went for the win - win - win - win - win approach and are declaring all five of our finalist videos as winners and are declaring each of those contestants as #1 BlackBerry Super Fanboys.  Seriously. We were blown away by the videos and having to pick just one grand prize winner was way too hard.

So we're changing up the rules and making the prizes extra awesome for everyone. It wasn't easy, but we're making awesomeness happen here.

Marco (BlackBerry Rap), Alexander (BlackBerry, My EverLasting Light), and Julien (BlackBerry Skydiving) will ALL be going to BlackBerry DevCon now. 

And for Shahriyar (Inceptionally Fast) and Deathcommand (BlackBerry Adrenaline), who can't attend DevCon, we're going to be hooking them up with an IOU for QNX BlackBerry Phones when they become available. 

And everybody will get all of the smaller bonus prizes (shopcrackberry coupon, fanboy t-shirt, crackberry book). HUGE Congrats go to all the winners here. If you haven't watched the videos yet, do so below. They are EPIC.

BLACKBERRY SUPER FANBOY CONTEST WINNERS

Marco van Hylckama Vlieg: Go Hard for the Brand I Love, BlackBerry Rap!

Deathcommand: BlackBerry Adrenaline!

Julien Dias: I'm Falling for BlackBerry!!

Alexander Perri: BlackBerry, My Everlasting Light

Shahriyar Ali: Inceptionally Fast

And that concludes our BlackBerry Super Fanboy Video Contest. Huge thanks go to all those that entered, and massive congrats go to all or our winners. I'm looking forward to meeting Marco, Alexander and Julien at DevCon next week. It's going to be a blast.  Congrats everybody! THAT WAS FUN!!!!

Kevin,

Very classy indeed by declaring all 5 winners! Awesome decision!

Speaking on a personal level tho, my favorite was Alex's Everlasting Light video.

Congrats to everyone! ^_^

mrskittens

Congrats to all of you for your amazing work. I'm so glad you all won. My fave was the Rap tho just like in "real life" the style didn't seem popular, and as they were all great it didn't seem right that any got left out. Hooray for CB rewarding these differing forms of brilliant fanboydom! <3

misskalunji

Congrats!! I think they really did all deserve it.
