CONTEST CLOSED

Tue Dec 18, 2007, 9:47 PM
...with 300+ entries still in the queue and 300 already checked in... Aie! Aie! Aie!

It's going to take me a while to get all these processed so please be patient. If you sent me a note, yes, I got it. I just haven't read it yet. If you sent me an Email, I responded if I got it. Be patient. Thank you.

So here's what's happening next:
I'm going to process the rest of the entries and link them to pages like the rest.
There are bound to be a few duplicates. That will neither advantage nor penalize an entry. Any duplicates will be assumed to be my mistake.
Then I'm going to pick the 10 I like the best, and turn my judges loose on them to pick the final winners.
Doing all this will probably take a few weeks. So please be patient.

I'd like to add that there are some amazing entries, and - seriously - I love each and every one of you for spending some of the limited hours you have on this earth working on my contest. In a sense, you're all winners; I truly wish I had a couple million bucks handy so I could give everyone an awesome prize. But I don't. But - you have my gratidude and deep appreciation! Seeing this huge outpouring of creativity greatly exceeded my wildest imaginings!

Love you all,
mjr.

Thanks Marcus for the opportunity, and the great stocks you provide.. 600 entries is a good turn out, and one hell of a task to review them all and choose the better 10! So best of luck, and looking forward to see the winning entries :)

good luck to all entrants (myself included :giggle:)

It's a monstrous task, to sort over 600 entries.
My sympathies :jawdrop: :salute:

Well...part of me really hopes that I win. The other part is going to be oo ing and aah ing over the ten that you do pick!

Anyways, I looked at some of them, and I can see which ones I would pick. I think I stand a fair chance, and I know that whoever wins will deserve it!!!

Great contest, but I think it would have been a little bit better if you actually had a theme...that would have made it a little more difficult and you might not have gotten so many entries! lol!

If I'd realized it was going to be such a barn-burner I would have come up with a set of themes or something to narrow people's focus.

In judging, I'm going to really have trouble picking finalists. But that's OK. It's what I like; that's simple. Right? ha.

well maybe instead of picking the best 10, pooick the best one from each page and THEN narrow it down...i dunno. I think it is a good idea...

I've personally reviewed every image so far. And I have a really good memory for images. So what I am going to do is go through each page of images and pick out every one that I even vaguely remember as being one of the better ones. Then I'll just keep going back and forth through that list deleting them until there are 10 survivors. Those'll get put on a finalist page and handed to my other judges to decide.

i guess this will be my first public message, but i just have to say it. This has been such an amazing contest! I never thought there could be such activities here on dA, i guess it's the biggest i've ever seen. And i am so proud to have participated in it. I don't even care anymore if i win or not. Just being part of this "competition" made feel i was part of something bigger. of a whole. We have to thank you kind Marcus, not only for the prizes, but for the high quality stock you offer.

So thank you, you have my deepest regards.

Take care, happy birthday and Merry Christmas! :heart:
