I like to hold tournaments that concern different period dramas. I pick a topic for my readers to vote on (favorite heroines, heroes, etc.) and I set up rounds of polls and see which contestant is left after all the rounds.
Here's are my past tournaments and winners. If you click the links, they will take your to the main tournament page for each tournament with all the links and results! Have a look around and enjoy!
Period Drama Heroine Tournament
My first tournament! Voters voted on who their favorite heroine was. It started out with thirty heroines or female main characters and lasted five rounds. It lasted from March 1, 2011 to April 10, 2011.
Winner: Elizabeth Bennet (Pride and Prejudice)
Period Drama Hero Tournament
Due to the success of the Period Drama Heroine Tournament, I started up a Period Drama Hero Tournament soon after the Period Drama Heroine Tournament ended. Voters voted on their favorite heroes. It started out with fifty heroes or male main characters and lasted for six rounds plus a wild card round. It lasted from May 1st, 2011 to June 21st, 2011.
Winner: George Knightley (Emma)
Period Drama Film Tournament
Miss Laurie from Old-Fashioned Charm and I co-hosted this tournament. Polls were split up between Elegance of Fashion and Old-Fashioned Charm and the followers of both blogs voted for their favorite period dramas. It started out with sixty films and lasted from June 22, 2011 to August 3rd, 2011.
Winner: Pride and Prejudice (1995)
2nd Period Drama Heroine Tournament
Due to the success of the Period Drama Heroine Tournament, I held another heroine tournament with different matches. The tournament started with 50 contestants and lasted for six rounds.
Winner: Margaret Hale (North and South)
After quite some time since I had the last tournament, I held a Villains Tournament to decide the worst villain. The Tournament started with forty contestants and lasted five rounds.
Winner: Rigaud (Little Dorrit)
