And that brings us to our final category.  The most prestigious award (Atty: careful) the Academy can offer (Atty: OK).
I speak of course of The Whiffie of the Year.  Once again, we opened this category up to 10 nominees (if it is good enough for the Oscars, it is good enough for us) and this didn't make the decision any easier.

The nominees for the Whiffie of the Year are

going to wait until after another ad.

Well, what do you know.  I made it through another one of these.

Congratulations to all our Winners.  Well deserved.

Thanks to all who took the time to nominate entries throughout 2011 and who took the time to vote on the final nominees.

Also thanks to the members of the Academy who helped make my job so much easier this year:

tc2324
CliffyB
puddingwrestler (who once again found the sponsors)

I wouldn't have been able to do this without all your support.  

So, roll out the acceptance speeches.

And until next year (what, end of March, you sure?  OK), make that until next time...

Build a model.

Congrats to all the winners,  :thumbsup: it was a very hard choice on most of them which just proves the higher standard of builds and ideas is rising.

Again, thanks Phil for putting in the time and effort and it was a pleasure helping out.  :cheers:  :bow:

I`ll be looking forward to the best of 2013, which I don`t doubt will be even harder to vote for.  :banghead: :thumbsup:

I would like to propose another category - Thread of the Year. This thread is entered, and no other entrants will be accepted simply beause they can never be as awesome. Congratulations on a well deserved win, philp!  :thumbsup: :cheers: :bow:

I got nominated?? :blink: :blink:

Outstanding quality of entries, as always, and this brought back memories of builds I'd completely forgotten about (that TTA Hornet for one! :wub: ). Thankyou to Philp and minions for doing this - it must be a pretty thankless task, and you deserve much kudos. :cheers:

Brian, you are on, though, a Coke will be fine.

Glad to know someone will be at Wonderfest with me.

I am also making Telford this year, yippee, in case anyone wants to meet the crazy person who came up with this idea?
