3rd Fully Booked Graphic Fiction Awards Contest Results/Updates/Winners

Friday, August 07, 2009

It's been almost a year since the 3rd Full Booked Graphic Fiction Awards was started and up until now there still have been no winners. Having entered myself in the Short Film category together with Team Digiworx, I'm already slowly losing hope that the contest will actually ever be concluded. Because of this our hardworked entry is in hiatus. We could not release it for public viewing while any possibility of winning was just as negligible.

A few days ago I finally lost any semblance of patience and sent Fully Booked one last mail before I decide to go to DTI and force the results from Fully Booked.

My name is Red Kinoko and I wrote this letter to enquire about the results of the 3rd Fully Booked Graphic Fiction Awards contest. It's been almost a year since the contest was first announced and up to now, there's been no information on the winners of the contest (or the lack thereof, as stipulated in the contest rules). I've tried to contact your customer care hotline regarding this already before but so far the only answer I've gotten is that they do not have any advisory regarding the promotion.

Now I would like to know if this contest is already concluded, what its current status is, and why there was no notice given to the participants on the outcome of the contest.

I would like to get any information on the matter as soon as possible.

A few days later, I finally got their reply:

Thank you for your email. To give you an update, we are in the deliberation process to determine the winners for the Prose, Comics and Short Film categories so the announcement of winners haven't been released yet. We have been waiting for Neil Gaiman's availability to come to the Philippines for the awarding ceremonies but as of last year, he hasn't been able to give his confirmation due to his busy schedule promoting Coraline and other prior commitments this is why there has been no set date for the awarding ceremonies.

Apparently, Neil Gaiman's too busy to even bother with this contest so until he wises up and remember that there are people waiting for his ass to come here to hand out moneyz and autographed stuff (which can be sold), there will be no conclusion to this contest.

I hope this also answers the questions of other people like me who's wondering what happened to the magically disappearing contest. :)

Hey, this really helped a lot with the update Red Kinoko, thanks so much. I'm sure a lot of contestants sacrificed a lot in their entries (I would know, I'm one of them) and it would be such a blow for hopes to hang up. There's this blog where the blogger is very defensive in the side of Fully Book, well the asshole wouldn't even understand the complaints coz he didn't join the contest. But again, I thank you a lot, I truly appreciate this =)


I know, right? Your work's almost like your own child, except an infant doesn't need as much proofreading.

Anyhoo, expect the results to be out real soon. At least that's what I've inferred from my correspondence with Fully Booked staff a few weeks ago.

Thanks for dropping by.

Hi. Thanks for dropping by. Last I heard of the contest was over two months ago, when shortlisted entries were asked to submit additional requirements. As for the actual results, we still do not have any updates.

You can try to send an email to the organizers too if you like :)

Hey man, I know this article is a year old but I have actually been wondering whatever happened to the 3rd awards. Actually, I was short listed in the 2nd one but they haven't even published that yet.

Thanks again!


Still no updates. >:[

We also inquired after my entry and they gave us the same answer. It must be about time tney announce a list so we can all move on from here. They are holding on to our intellectual property and nobody can submit their work to other organizations. very unprofessional or unheard of actually...we should all file a complaint somewhere with the dti? who can give us all an answer?
