2020 Snowflake Challenge Results

Hey folders!

Dev Josh here with the results of our 2020 Snowflake Challenge! A big thanks to everyone who participated, I hope you had as much fun making these snowflakes as I had admiring them!

This challenge was a sequel to our 2014 Snowflake Challenge, and this year y'all crushed it again! Like last time, I tried to have each dev pick a favorite, but some of these snowflakes were so impressive, they got picked multiple times. Let's start with the runner-ups:

Hi agcohn821,

Thank you very much for choosing my "snowflake" design. It was a pleasant surprise to receive this award.
I know you had many options to choose from ... I am grateful that you like my design.

Many thanks, Evica
