When I introduced this contest a few weeks ago, I underestimated the time I would have to sort through, research and analyze each entry. Apologies for the delay.
I was thrilled to have received almost 40 entries for the contest, and was caught off guard by how many were so very personal. For that reason, I made the executive decision to not post many publicly.
This was by far the most challenging of my contests to judge, and I am quite impressed at the degree of creativity. I sincerely appreciate the amount of thought, time and effort that each entrant clearly applied to their contribution. To give you an idea of the variety, I received poems, letters, short stories, song lyrics, cartoons, illustrations and even a Powerpoint presentation.
The contest came down to these 4 choices:

The philosophical perspective
Believe me when I tell you that it was a struggle to select just one winner. But I am very happy to announce that Anna has won all 5 seasons of Lost on DVD, autographed by various cast and crew!
I would like to ask that everyone who submitted something to please email me your shipping address and let me know if you'd prefer a S6 premiere bag or Lost fan pin.
Congratulations to Anna and to everyone who participated. You all continue to amaze and inspire me. To those who disclosed personal stories and journeys, I am grateful for your trust and admire your bravery. This show has truly had a profound effect on the lives of millions.
