Pleased, Humbled, and Craving Some Fish Stew

We are pleased and humbled by today’s announcement that VaticanCameos was named the winner of GISHWHES 2013. Based on the submissions we have seen from teams on Tumblr and other social media outlets, the quality, engagement, creativeness of the contributions from our competitors was outstanding. It is amazing to be part of the creative, vibrant, and wacky community that is GISHWHES and we really appreciate all of the teams and individuals who have filled our ask box with good wishes and congratulations.

Speaking of congratulations, big props to the runner up teams Widdermackers, SuperWhoLocker, Subtext, Schnitzeljagger, Rocket, ROBOTHEAD, LSG, Llama-nomenal, KaleOfTheLord, Impala, Gishminions, Felix-Fandomis, BunniesRunAMOK, Bicycle_Touring, and Babysharks!

VaticanCameos is looking forward to meet together as a team for the first time in Vancouver and we hope to cross paths with many of our worthy competitors in future hunts and hunt-related activities. Have an abnosome holiday 2013 season and see you next year!

Item #42: Film your team’s GISHWHES experience - you all communicating with each other via the Internet, doing courageous items in public, items at home, laughing, crying, screaming, running - we want to see it all. Include a couple of personal voice-overs or video clips of one or more of you commenting about how it affected you (bad or good). We want to see the journey. Edit it into a 2-minute video.
