That's right folks, after about 10 days, 19 judges and a collective amount of 122.1 hours of gameplay, we finally have our result!

Before I announce the winners I would first like to congratulate everyone who entered and all the judges which put in their personal time for this competition. Well done people, you all deserve a massive pat on the back!


...And the winners are...

The Corrupted by Pitkakorvaa with a rating of 4.37 (14 votes)

He is about to kill you by JWcreations with a rating of 4.12 (14 votes)

JOINT POTENTIAL - Act 1 by Moth with a rating of 4.11 (11 votes)

Well done Pitkakorvaa, JWcreations and Moth! You will soon get a message asking for your details so your prizes can be sent off to you.

See the complete list of rankings to see how your map fared off in the competition.


The contest gave us some great material, don't think we have forgotten about your great entries!

Honourable and dishonourable mentions:

The contest is over... what now?

Go on and play the contest entries (SP workshop page link) and don't forget to subscribe and watch play-throughs of the levels on the official TWP YouTube channel.

We would also like to mention that since judging has finished, you are welcome to edit your maps freely now and continue improving them.

Again, a huge congratulations to everyone and of course... the winners!

Thank you for hosting the conest. It gave me a chance to finally buckle down and RELEASE a map instead of keeping my previous ones in a pile in my SDK Content/maps folder. Considering my one week to work and my product of one test chamber, 9th isn't bad. Thanks again for making this happen! I hope there continue to be contests in the future, but I understand if not, seeing as Portal 2 mapping will slowly become less and less popular. Congratulations to Pitkakorvaa, JWcreations, and Moth for your winning contributions! I can say that they were all excellent to the extreme.

wow! third place! :-)
(FIRST co-op?) :-p

Every single competition entry was *astoundingly* good, considering we only had a week and a half. Serious thanks to the staff at TWP for organising this competition! :-)

Congrats to all the winners. All these maps were great, and I'm glad I finally know who won. I'm kinda disappointed there weren't more entries, weren't there LOTS more last year?

Anyone wishing to speedrun with me, feel free to PM me. I'm always open to new partners.

was, but there was more time as well.
I skipped the contest this same reason, because I could not make a proper quality map. Maybe the next contest will be Free-for-all, allowing any kind of single/coop level. Maybe for Xmas? :)

BTW workshop is now coop-friendly, so the coop entries should be uploaded to there soon as well...

Congrat to the winners, and cheer for non-winners!

Congrats to the winners!

This may not be possible, but can we see the judges comments (if they exist)? It'd be more helpful to me for next year to know exactly what people didn't like.

Thank you for visiting Thinking With Portals!

That's up to the judges if they want to post it. I personally did.

Congratulations guys! Didn't play Moth's as I have no friends, but the other two I thought were excellent. LambdaCore's entry was also fantastically put together, and makes me wonder if there shouldn't be a Hydra section on the site. Granted, that would probably be the only map in it...

My maps: Double Bill / Jam / Oval Window / Gymnasium / Gymnasium Part 2 / Minimalism (collection) / Resolution
All feedback welcome!
