I had a very difficult time judging this competition. Not only were there a lot of entries, there were a really large amount of top notch MOC’s! In all honesty, there are some entries that are far better than anything I expected in this contest that didn’t even make the top 10! I tried to judge as fair as possible. I looked for uniqueness, build quality, color usage, parts usage, functionality, clean lines, photo quality, etc.

I hope everyone had fun with this build!

Here are the winners:

1st place:
Ben Jarvis

2nd place:
D-9 Hydra pic 2 by mondayn00dle

3rd place:
Amatsu-Kami by Memory ☓

Honorable Mentions: (not in any particular order)
PeterLMorris, Adrian Florea, dasnewten, fredoichi, Worker201, Nannan Z

The top 3 will receive a flickr mail from me to get shipping info.

I had a great time with this contest and am looking forward to the next one!

BTW, I will be looking for assistance to judge the next contest, so if you are interested let me know.

I must have been impossible to choose, considering the quality of the entries submitted.

Out of curiosity, how many entries were there? Upwards of 100, I'd imagine.

Who were the top 8? Didn't you say you would say them?

Man, I knew I was hosed when I started seeing all those folding things show up. They really are brilliant, just absolutely brilliant. I know this contest was hella hard to judge. Awesome picks, and congrats to the winners. You guys really brought the noise.

Congrats to the winners.

peterlmorris: You made it as an honorable mention, so you beat my "folding thing" at least. ;)

Congrats winners and participants. I've seen some amazing builds emerging from this contest. I appreciate the honorable mention, and it must have been hell in some cases to pass judgement.

^ Hehe, congrats to you Ben and the other guys... this sure was a fun contest to participate in and to follow, so hats off to you Brickeye for setting this up and judging this. And to be mentioned among the other great builders sure is honorable, thanks!
Ben Jarvis 01 9 years ago
Yeah, ok, I should say more than 'shock' I guess... firstly, 5.6 metric cr*p-tons of thanks to Brickeye and everyone involved in the comp and SCI-Lug in general.... and seeing as it's awards season, thanks to my wife (no really) as I managed to p*ss her off royally last weekend trying to get that hangar scene right and take the photos when I was suposed to be taking her out for dinner :-)

It really was a megga-fun comp and, given who entered and the quality of the entries I really am genuinely in shock I even made the top 3.

Bring on the next comp!!!!!

Congratulations to the other winners and to everyone who entered. This really was a fun contest, and there are some amazing MOCs to show for it.

And of course, many thanks to Clay for running the show. I know it’s cliché to say “Wow, it must have been tough to judge with so many great entries...” but this contest defines that sentiment.

Well done all around.

I've been looking forward to the announcement of the winners for a while now. I wouldn't have been able to judge, personally. Too many amazing entries.

Well done Ben - a highly deserved winner.

Where is the Big_X's entry on the honorable mentions list? :)

Well, Jerrec, it looks like I don't get that free beer you promised (just as well, I don't actually drink).

^Thanks for reviving an old topic, man (no, I don't consider two days to be 'old', so I'm not a hypocrite).

And haven't you already asked that question several times in this group?
Robo-Knight 8 years ago
True. :/

But contests are fun. :)

Hmm...spent two minutes wondering how I missed the announcement and then actually looking for the entry thread...then I realized I hadn't looked at the posted dates...whatever...I'm going back to bed.

I like contests too... but a really awesome theme would be necessary to live up to the standards of this contest.

But I'll always have a soft spot for this one, because it is the reason I joined Flickr.
