Holiday Contest 2011 Now in Voting!
Remember lying in bed as a child with anticipation of Santa's arrival? With your excitment reaching a fever pitch it seemed nearly impossible to fall asleep. After hours of stirring in your bed you finally drift away and dream of what awaits under your tree. You flashback to the past year - 'Have I been naughty or nice? Did the bearded man in red listen to what I had asked for?
As we get older, the Holiday may take on a different meaning but it's still easy for us all to reach down in our spirits and once again dream like a child.
What does the Holiday Dream look like to you? We'd like to see your Dream interpreted through art.

I'm surprised at this years turn out....I liked it when you had zbrush as one of the prizes... I also like the gift certificate - sad to say I'd rather come in second to get that - lol... I did want to say I am not able to view either of the two animation entrees - there's only 2 and when you click to view, it only gives you a save option instead of run.... so, I save it and then go open it - the first entree is blank, I get nothing... the second image, I get a screen that moves bars to the music, but that's it. I have suggested many things in the past to make these contests better, viewing the turn out so far, I'd suggest going back to the previous years and reading the suggestions.... I know in the next week you'll get hit with a lot of entrees, but out of all the years I've been here, I've never seen this few entrees this late into the contest - maybe it's the prizes? I'm attracted to zbrush, drawing tablets and the gift card would always be great to win - you might consider puting gift cards in all places.... last place gets like a $20 gift card, first place doesn't have one, second place is $100 - so if you put one at $200 for the first place, you should get some entrees people put pride in... and last, I would like to suggest again a meter that shows whose got the votes like you do for arist of the month.... I also want to say I look forward to these contest every season and you should make a big deal of the contest on the front page - heck - you send emails to everyone, why don't you send an email showing the entrees so far and stating the close off date - say something like: This could be the year you win, there are few entrees and you only have so many days left before the contest is closed... I know how your contest links work cause I've been here, but at other sites, I can't figure out how to get into the contests - lol - so I don't post there... I'm thinking that is happening here... ya know when you click on the blue box that says contest - nothing happens - well some think, you have it set up to where you have to go to the bigger box to the left and click again.... then, you have to click on 3D, 2D, animation.... I can see how it can be confusing to someone that wants to enter the contest - I think some tweaking of you set up links is warranted. - just trying to give ya some ideas to make this contest all it can be.
