You thought I forgot, didn’t you? I don’t forget. I don’t mess around with competitions. Below, the five winners, and after those, the honorable mentions.

1. The Concealed Identity Selfie.

Five words for you: D.C. Superior Court Community Service. Although their identity is hidden on this unique photoshop job he/she did, you get the idea. Whoever you are, you rock for finding the time to take a selfie when doing community service on a D.C. highway. Way to find the humor in a serious thing. I like you.

2. The Classic (or Angst-y Teen) Selfie.

The self-take is really an art to be mastered, as showcased in this submission. Can’t you almost hear the Simple Plan playing in his room? Maybe too shy to submit them himself, it must be nice to know that you have such a kind friend living in VCE who really appreciates your talent and submitted them to the blog so you could have a chance at fame. Also, this may be a good time for an internet safety lesson: Always be careful with who you send pictures to over the internet, kids — you never know where they’ll show up, am I right?

3. The “Reasons Why You Regret Taking a Snapchat” Selfie.

Busted. It’s really a flaw in the design of SnapChat that you can take a screenshot of the disappearing picture, but as Forrest Gump says, it happens. And it happened that night during finals when you were bored enough to take this. Great work — it literally doesn’t even look like you. And I agree, middle parts are so much fun, Addie!

4. The Landmark Selfie.

So good, so iconic, so active. You Georgetown student, you.

5. The “Good Use of Another Object/Person” Selfie.

Like I said, good use of another object in your selfie. It’s like you’re actually with Wiz Khalifa instead of taking pictures of his picture taped above your bed, you know? Also, the facial expression. Are you guys related? Cousins? Second cousins? Brothers? So curious.

So, congrats. If you see these winners around campus, give ‘em a high five. Or don’t if they’re strangers. Or do. #yolo
