You told us how ‘Game of Thrones’ affected you. Now, we’re happy to announce the winners of our #VocalGOT contest!

By Vocal TeamPublished 4 years ago 1 min read

It truly was the first of its kind. There has never been a show quite like Game of Thrones—one that has had so many viewers all around the world tuning in all at once, moving us, breaking our hearts, and bringing us together. But last month, one of the most revolutionary shows in history came to a controversial close, and we wanted to know: After eight years of investing our time and attention and love into the happenings of Westeros, what has the show come to mean to you?

We asked all of our GOT-loving creators to come together for a community-wide contest, telling us you most heartfelt, surprising, life-changing stories about how the show has affected you. And you all delivered. We read all of your stories about looking up to characters, and overcoming hardships, and falling in love, and after a ton of deliberation, we’re excited to announce our winners, as chosen by the entire Vocal team.

Congratulations to Kathryn Milewski, creator of our grand-prize winning story, “The Hall of Faces”!

And a big congrats to our first and second runner up winners, Ry Lewis and Robyn Gold, for their stories “All Men Must Die, but What Is Dead May Never Die,” and “What the Women of Westeros Mean to Me.”

For more entries, you can explore the rest of the contest in our "Eight Years Later" collection.

Congratulations to all of our winners—we're so proud to have such talented creators as a part of our community.

And finally, a huge thank you to all creators who entered—you all made the heartache of this last season a bit more bearable for all of us here at Vocal.

Stay tuned for more contests and challenges! We can’t wait to see what you all create next.

—Your biggest fans, the Vocal Team
