Oh wow! The winning entries were fantastic! Congrats to all who entered. It was super to see the enthusiastic participation.

Congratulations to all the winners! There were many entries that I thought represented amazing talent and creativity. Now that the contest is over it would be nice if there was some mechanism to provide feedback. One entry in particular, the one I voted for, completely blew me away but did not finish in the top five. I would love to be able to tell that person how impressed I was with his or her work.

By: Tracesl on 11/4/09
Congratulations to all that entered, wonderful and creative works all around.

Would like to see a better break out of categories, animation should have been its own, same with photography.

By: dread_siren on 11/4/09
congrats to the winners, I also think there might be a benefit to having ani and 3d seperate, was hard to tell which were anomated! and the 2d and photography (though most combine the elements) its hard for a striaght up photo to truely compete with all the effects available on the 2d. the only thing that realy gets me though is 3d renders in the 2d section, is there a reason they were not moved? I know there arent many 2d artists entering here but we do have a bit harder of a time with 3d mixed into the works... just a thought.

congratulations to the winners and I hope you make great use out of those prizes... I really liked the idea zbrush was one of the prizes... I was actually hoping to win 3rd place - lol... Well, every year I learn something from this contest... this year I learned my "comic style" ain't gonna do it... You voters out there love ugly monster faces = lol... so, I just might work all year long on an ugly monster face and post it no matter what the title for next year is, I think I'll have a better chance then = lol
