We say this every year, but we had an especially hard time this year choosing the winners of the Saxxy Awards. The Extended category in particular was overflowing with quality submissions - who knew that the Heavy could be so adorable or so creative, how dark Nick's backstory was, and how hilariously terrifying a plane full of Scouts could be!
Congratulations to all the winners of the 2015 Saxxy Awards, who will be receiving the coveted Saxxy Award, equipable in Team Fortress, and to the Overall Winner, whose team will be flown out to meet the folks that make movies and games here at Valve.

Just a quick note to the Workshop community: We're really excited about some of the cool stuff you've already submitted, but wanted to clarify that weapons submissions aren't going to win. So if you like winning, keep submissions to cosmetic items and taunts only. Why no weapons? Batman doesn't kill, you guys. It's sort of his whole deal.
