2007 Halloween "Dinner with the Dead" Contest Winners

Related: None

This year's theme interpretation showed our communities creative talent. We had a large range of subjects from humorous to horrific and everything else in between. We are amazed at the amount of exceptional art work that was submitted.

It brings us great joy to give away such wonderful prizes from our supporting sponsors every year. We hope everyone enjoys our contests as much as we do and hope they continue to participate in our annual traditions.

As with all the previous years, there were so many great submissions that it was hard to narrow down the final selection. Congratulations to all the winners!

Please watch for the holiday contest coming in November.

I am absolutely gobsmacked (and also delighted) that I won a prize. I honestly thought I had no chance at all. Congratulations to all the other (far more worthy in my opinion) winners and to everyone else for their truly wonderful entries. I would like to echo Calum5's thanks to 'Rosity and the sponsers and say an equally huge thank you to the vendors whose outstanding products I used to create the image.

Last years theme WAKE THE DEAD was my first entry into the renderosity contest world. I looked forward to this all year. When I read the theme was: DINNER WITH THE DEAD, it set me back and all kinds of images hit my brain. I went gorry with mine and even cleaned it up some... Now looking at what has won, I wish I would of gone with an idea that was scribbled on a piece of paper that I walked by the last few weeks. I was disappointed durring the contest that there were no credit lines to the artist... Some artist signed their work and that was the only way you knew who did it - unless, you recognized their work... I think if you've been here at renderosity for the last year, you knew calum5's work... I knew it was his... I hope next year a credit line will be added... Their were some pieces I would of liked to have been able to contact the artist and ask where they got some of their props. CONGRATULATION TO EVERYONE, ESPECIALLY MY WIFE WHO JUST JOINED RENDEROSITY (because I'm always here) AND WON AN HONORABLE MENTION.

WOW 4th place! Thankyou everyone

I had the idea for the photo early in the month, but we were leaving on a two week family holiday and did not have time to set it up. So I took the styrofoam skull with me. (Not sure what the Xray machines at the airport showed).
I would have like to age the mummy with tea-stain but it was made with the hotel pillow and I did not want ruin it.
Any guess what people might have thought looking in the window while I was making it.LOL.

Lighting was limited to the room lights, and the hotel room furniture, it was a self catering unit so we at least we had the crockery.

My family is ever patient, and my thanks go to them for putting up with me, and waiting for a late dinner.

Congratulations to the other winners there was some great pics.

By: jpiazzo on 11/2/07
Has any of the other winners heard fron admin about prize redemption?

By: DiamondSnatcher on 11/2/07
Thank you renderosity for offering such an exciting contest to get creative and to view other artist's fabulous and funny pictures, which sparked so much creativity from all!

Congratulations to all the winners! I am sooooo happy I won and thank you tremedously for my prize. It is exactly what I needed. My free trial download of Adobe photoshop never worked after I had to perform a system restore, during the first week I was using the photoshop. A great thank you to all the artists who entered!
