Yup, we finally have those ^^
Will I tell you right away? Of course not, I love torturing you
Just kidding (stop throwing rotten vegetables!)...after a long and heavy to do vote (and please, next time, try to be less good, judges had a though time deciding), here are the results of the Symbolica contest.
and myself decided this:
RED DRAGON BOOK
From a Fairy Tale
with 52 points[link]
BLUE UNICORN BOOK
Look Around, You're Different
with 55 points[link]
GREEN GRYPHON BOOK
with 57 points[link]
also got a piece of custom jewelry from
as her entry had most favs among the winning works, at midnight, Oct. 30.
To keep this contest clean and objective as possible, judges used a points system to decide. Four categories carried each 1-5 points and all those points were summed for each participant. You can read more about it in my last journal, here:[link]
By this, I eliminated the possibility of "liking" some entry more and giving it points just for that. Three of the judges are professional artists, one is a very serious amateur.
Why am I writing all this? Well, I hope you like the winners...but, as it usually goes like that with contests, I'm sure there will be different opinions on who would suit better and why...what I plead is: please respect the winners and their works, they deserve that
And if you possible don't agree with our choice and think your entry was better, remember: there will be other contests and prizes (some maybe soon
), so there will be other chances for you to win my books or other prizes I might provide.
On the end, thank you all for entering. You were more than great
On the end, one feature:
won a 4th place on the Fantasy Sci-fi Fusion Contest and got a feature from me. Unfortunately, it happened that I don't have my premium anymore, so instead seeing his works in my journal, go to his gallery...Trust me, it's quite worth of your time
