Again, we have a special “People’s Choice”-award!

Your task is to read through all the build threads and vote who will get that award.

To make it a bit harder for you, there are no categories in this award! Evil

That’s right. You will be voting for a single best build in the whole competition – and the winner will get an Acebeam H20 headlamp or Wubenlight TP10 Tactical Pen (provided by hc-lights.fi).

Voting starts now and ends in two weeks!

Links to build threads:

Some photos (thanks CRX!):

Very nice work showcased here. I really wish I would have built mine this year. Maybe next year I’ll have the time to work on it.

I’ve been reading almost all building threads from this “contest” since their beginning, and I must say that I am trully impressed!!
Not only because of the building capacity – imagining the “final” results, designing and implementing all the process, putting everything together -, but also for the courage to make these flashaholic products, “risking”/applying your personal time in such a way in the “hobby”!!

I want to congratulate the winners, but I also want to leave my word of encouragement to all of you that, for one reason or another, didn’t manage to finish your ideas! Please, bring them up, and present us with more amazing stuff! Thumbs Up

I didn’t “met” Old-Lumens, I arrived late to this place, but this contest is truly an inspiration and also a challenge, a “dare”, and – for what I’ve read and saw here and in his own Youtube channel – a true homage!! He is surely proud of the legacy Wink

Thanks for the inspiration, thanks for the courage, thanks for sharing your knowledge Blushing

Congratulations to all! Thumbs Up

Well, I’d like but…let’s see if it will happen Big Smile
I have a PhD to end within this year so time will narrow a bit from now on until the end of the year! BUT, if I can, if I have the materials and resources, and if I don’t lack the ideas, I’ll enter Wink

Seeing all the builds from this year was truly an inspiration and I hope that someday I can make one too Wink

Congratulations to the all of you that entered the “contest”!
And thank you again, CRX Cool

It’s perfectly acceptable to rob the LED’s & drivers out of them to use in the next scratch build contest… just sayin’ Innocent

Good one, CRX Thumbs Up

I do, i really do, and the funny thing is: I was looking both for a headlamp and a AAA flashlight!!! So how about that? Wink
The headlamp has a very nice feel and “wonderful” tint that I really like, and the AAA light will probably be my pocket light, thin, one mode, enough to use in emergency for close range!

Thank you once again Big Smile
