DeanMail - December 2013 - Dean's YouTube Video Contest Winners Announced
After an exhaustive judging process, which contained many of moments of awesomeness, incredulity and hilarity, I'm very pleased to announce the winners of the 'Dean Friedman YouTube Video Contest.
The task was incredibly difficult - much more so than I could have anticipated - owing to the astonishing quality (and in some cases the utter lack thereof), of all the entries. Truly, it was a treat running this contest and thanks are due to my able team of hardworking judges who aided and advised during the painstaking and fun process.
Before announcing the winners, I'd just like to thank and acknowledge everyone who took the time to make their video and enter the contest, and say that regardless of whether your video wound up a winner, they were all, even the truly inane ones, amazing beyond words! So, here goes...

Congratulations all you guys and gals for producing such cool videos! And 'way-to-go' 11 year old Megan Gutteridge for producing, not one but, two terrific winning videos. Woohoo! But wait!

Truthfully, every video was a winner in my book and wish I could list them all... Oh, wait, I can. And I urge you to check 'em all out by going to the Dean's YouTube Contest Video link, enlarge the first video to full-screen and watch 'em all! Just sit back and enjoy the show.
Winners will receive their cash prizes by snail mail.
Anyway, this was fun. I hope we can do it again next year.
Everybody be well and if you still haven't figured out what to get your honey for Christmas, there's still time to order a copy of my new compilation album, 'Words & Music' or the 35th Anniversary Digitally Remastered Edition of "Well, Well," Said the Rocking Chair', plus all sorts of other cool stuff: ORDER CD's, T-Shirts and other Cool Stuff
Enjoy the videos and have a great weekend, everybody!
