Dear ice cream lovers on Steemit,

I'ts Monday now, that means that the time to submit new entries is over.
I want to thank @ura-soul, a vegan Steem witness, for being the honorary guest judge and for supporting me with the difficult decision.

It was great fun - I am overwhelmed by the quality of your entries!

I am sure that this will not be the last #healthyveganicecream contest! I will certainly host another one, maybe in the summer. :)

Here are the delicious contest entries:

(ordered by posting date)

How winners have been chosen

As I do not want to choose the winners alone, I asked @ura-soul to support me as a vegan honorary guest judge. Gladly he agreed. Btw, @ura-soul is a Steemit witness and has been a vegan for many years. Thanks, @ura-soul, for your support!

So, both @ura-soul and I judged the postings independently from each other. The combination (averaging) of both of our rankings lead to the final winners.

And here are the glorious winners:

We have one #1, two #2s (ties) and a #3.

#1: Tropical Bliss @plantstoplanks

#2: Vegan Banana - Mango - Vanilla - Date Chunk Ice Cream @fruitdaddy

#2: Lemon Blueberry @birdsinparadise

#4: Mango Blood Orange Lassi Nice Cream by @popsoz

The prizes

As described in the main post, I planned to award 7 prizes in the following way:

1st prize: 45% of the SBD payout of the main post
2nd prize: 25% of the SBD payout of the main post
3rd prize: 10% of the SBD payout of the main post
4-7th prize: each 5% of the SBD payout of the main post

Let's look at the SBD payout of the main post:

SBD-Payout is 1.573 SBD. Therefore prizes would be:

1st prize: 0.707 SBD
2nd prize: 0.393 SBD
3rd prize: 0.157 SBD
4-7th prize: 0.078 SBD

However, if you ask me, these prizes should be larger. So I decided to add 0.5 SBD from my wallet to each of the prizes and to round them up to the next decimal.

Thus the final prizes are:
1st prize: 1.3 SBD
2nd prize: 0.9 SBD
3rd prize: 0.9 SBD
4th prize: 0.6 SBD

This looks better, doesn't it!?!

Prizes will be sent out to you shortly!

Also, independently from the prizes, each contestant got an upvote and a resteem from me.

Thanks for your contributions!

CU,
Chris
