• 1st place: Microbadge: Best Microbadge of the Year 2014 - 1st place + 50% of any tips this list receives.

Contest fine print

If a tie exists at the end of the voting period for the top position, a run-off poll (to last a week) will decide the winner.

Also, please remember that soliciting votes for badges, either public or privately, is not allowed. Please do not advertise one specific microbadge or designer; let votes fall where they may, honorably!

Any situation against the rules or not identified will be dealt with by the Microbadge of the Year committee (currently garion, Schwartzkopf, wildthayne, and zorro_jv). The committee's word is final, but they're all quite friendly and won't bite your hand off. At least, not unless provoked.
