Over the last several weeks our team has been busy reviewing entries for the Holiday Spark Challenge. In the short two-week period that the competition ran, thousands of effects were submitted, from creators all over the world competing for their chance to win over 380,000 USD in cash prizes.

As always, selecting the winning effects is challenging, but fun. Our judges looked closely at everything from total points earned, craftsmanship and originality, to creativity and use of the theme to land on our top 20 panel picks. And from this list, today we’re excited to share our top five cash prize winners:
