Spoiler:- A little background story and emotional mumbo-jumbo:
The WSC is a Weekly Spriting Competition founded (and made big) by Insidious_Dreamer. It was a place where you could grow as an artist in a friendly competitive environment. Unfortunately it came to an end in 2010.
Last year, we decided there was a need to pick up where we left off, since it was such a great project. And thus, we created the GWSC or Great Weekly Spriting Contest.
It was a difficult road, but we managed to successfully keep the spriting alive for 80 weeks now! Hopefully we can continue to go strong for long time!
I want to thank everybody who participated in the GWSC (either spriting, voting or just mental support). It means a lot to me that spriting is kept alive. I personally think it is a great way for a starting artist to get some experience (and not just pixel artist BTW)
After those 80 week of spriting, a lot of great results where made in the GWSC. As a celebration of this, I present to you the 'Sprite of the Year'-contest, where YOU can decide which of the winning sprites deserves to be called the BEST SPRITE OF THE YEAR!
Because these are a lot of winning sprites, there are 10 semi-final polls (5 starting this week, 5 starting next week). After 1 week, the most voted sprite of the semi-final will go to the final poll. This poll will end the beginning of the new year, and the sprite-of-the-year will be crowned. The winner will also get a surprise!
EVERYONE CAN GIVE 2 VOTES!
So here are the sprites:

I want to give some more explanation for my voting then just voting in the poll: Sprite 8: I adore this sprite. The fusion is so clean It looks like a real pokemon.
I had a hard time choosing between sprite 5 and 7 but I went with sprite 5. It should be a real wormadam-form ^^
I went for sprite 2 on this one. Obviously I don't know the themes for any of them since I've been so inactive but the Linoone/Hydreigon fusion just stands way out to me. It's exactly the kind of sprite I would have wanted to create myself, so that's my only vote there. Props to whoever made it, it's totally awesome!
