The time for voting has come to its close. The time for celebration begins now!

Conlanging

Best Conlang
Mecislau's Alashian won this category easily with 9 of 11 votes

Best Phonology
MONOBA's Siwa took this category with 3 of 6 votes.

Best Morphosyntax
It was Cuhbi by Yng here with 3 of 5 votes.

Best Script
In a runnaway contest in which every single vote went to clawgrip in one way or another, it was Fkeuswa that took the prize with 11 of 13 votes in a well-deserved landslide victory.

Conworlding

Best Conworld
One of my personal favourites, Océano de la Vida by Xhin, won this quiet category with 2 of 3 votes.

Best Conworld Element, Written
A single vote gave this category to these Imperial Messages, by Jipi.

Best Conworld Element, Visual
For others like me who would love to make a font for their own conlangs, Jipi's Tagati Book G is an impressive and inspiring font that totally deserves the win it received in this category with 2 of 4 votes. (A confession: I didn't vote in general in these awards, but I voted here to break a tie.)

Community

Best Topic
Apparently everybody loves Whimemsz's Polysynthesis for Novices, which won this category with 8 of 12 votes.

Best Newcomer
In addition to sweeping the Best Script category, clawgrip won this category with the love of 7 of 9 voters.

Best Quote
With 7 of 10 votes, the best quote of the year was

Special Award for Outstanding Services to Conartistry
Although it only received 7 votes rather than 10, I'm going to adhere to the spirit rather than the letter of the rule here and give a Special Award for Outstanding Services to Conartistry to Zompist for writing Advanced Language Construction.

Congratulations to all winners!

I didn't even know about this until now. Thank you everyone for the two awards.
