The Anagrammy Results for January 2004

Anagrammy Awards > Results Page


It was a little quieter this month with only 39 voters. It was quiet in the early months of last year with votes in the high 30's.

Most categories had clear winners visible from Day One, but there were a couple of very close events.


General Category - first three win an award

26 votes came in on the first day, and Adrian's remarkable anagram was a the clear leader. The real contest was for the minor places. David B and Jesse were 2nd and 3rd respectively after 24 hours. JB joined then and moved into 3rd place on the 2nd day and then into 2nd place at the end of the event.

David's third place brings him up to equal 5th on the All-Time table with 49 points.

Awardsmaster's Challenge

This month's challenge was to anagram New Year's Resolution(s). At first glance, I did not see any one anagram as standing out, however the voters obviously did. Richard's was 20 points clear after the first day. He then accelerated to a huge 41 point while the rest of us were almost stationary.

Richard Grantham

Long Category

This was close. Two stood out on Day One, Mey and Adrian who were tied at that stage. The next day, Adrian was ahead by two, as he was by Day Three. He ended up winning by just 5 points.

Special Category - first three win an award

A small field this month with just four starters. Humour won out over Poetry this month, with Adrian's very funny, very long anagram the clear leader after 24 hours. He stayed well clear for a comfortable win with Mey in second place. There was a tussle for third place, Richard moved clear of Jesse on the last day.

What a month for Adrian with four wins. He is the first person to take the "Long Triple" (Medium, Long and Special). His wins jump him up to equal 7th place with 41 awards.

Mey's three wins give him a total of 148 wins. Richard's two wins give him 132 wins all up.

The vocabulary arrangements = Sent in by clever anagram author.

This gives Jesse 17 awards and is now equal 11th on the All Time Table.
