TCUE Awards Winners

The awards function was in an abandoned hospital on Saturday night; turn out was quite a bit better than I expected. I was hoping to be able to post the group photo, but no one has put it online yet.

Here are the results. Percentages are out of votes for that category, not total voters, because not everyone voted for all categories. There are less than 3 places in some categories because things or people that only got single votes weren't ranked.

Congratulations to all the winners, and thanks to everyone who voted.

I had people who had voted present them. I found out later that there were a few more people who had voted at the event, my apologies for not catching you and making you read something. The awards, in the order that they were presented:
