And, Your Catholic Hipster of 2014 is...

It was a tight race, down to the very end!

First off, we'd like to thank everyone who made the Wojtys so much fun.

From the first retweet: 

to the first favorite: 

From the first attempt at a bribe:

to the first true write-in nominee:

From Leah Darrow taking the lead thanks to a LOTR post: 

to Matt Swaim jumping back in front via his jean jacket Hipster perfection photo: 

This contest saw everything!

Nuns battling with laity, underground stories of bannings from Theology on Tap, its very own Catholic Hipster hashtag (#Wojtys), and on and on. 

In the end, though, the votes were counted, and a comeback more improbable than any sports reference I can think of took place:

Ladies and gentlemen of the Catholic Hipster community, I give you your Catholic Hipster of 2014.....

Anna Mitchell!!!

Congrats to the Son Rise co-host (did I just give you a promotion?) who busted out a tweet at the last minute that solidified her Catholic Hipster status:

She was too cool to even know about the nomination until it mattered most, and that is so amazingly hip!

So, way to go Anna Mitchell, it's a well-deserved victory!

For what it's worth, I was going to use this picture if Matt Swaim would have won:

If Son Rise is seriously hurting for guests in 2015, I'm available to discuss the results (I'm at least a sixth string caliber guest).
