Phew! After a leaving a few too many things far too late, I just finished cobbling together my custom, and sent it off to Colodie. Hopefully it doesn't get eaten by the internet en route.
I'm very excited by the creative category in this year's competition. I had a lot of fun putting my creative entry together, and I'm looking forward to seeing where other people have taken their creative license
After struggling to enter two categories, I take my hat off to anybody who managed to enter all three. If such a person exists, they are legendary!
Has anybody else submitted an entry but not received a confirmation email?
I've sent in entries in two categories, but only got a reply for the second. I'm quietly confident that it's due to Colodie's crazy schedule, plus the sketchy email access he mentioned, plus (hopefully!) an overwhelming number of submissions from other people.
I'd feel even more confident if somebody else were in the same boat.
If you sent it before the deadline, I wouldn't worry about it. One thing that does kind of concern me is that so few people have stepped forward to announce they were even running... it looks like five people are making customs, even though there are probably closer to 30. Well, one would hope.
I suspect the message might have been eaten by spam filters. In retrospect, I probably should not have tried to impress Colodie by claiming to be the prince of Nigeria and offering him rock bottom prices on generic trouser medicine.
Re-read the rules and I don't see a rule about it, but I recall that we can only post images after they are displayed for voting, if not after voting is done. (Personally, I'm all for posting images and links one they are submitted to the contest, but rules are rules).
But like you said, the rules were somewhat vague, so I just want to make sure. There was still some confusion on whether the "End of the Contest" was supposed to be after everything was submitted or after everything was voted on.
How to vote updated, because that would be useful...
In a sentence (or two), send me your vote by June 4th, Midnight, EST. I have no idea what my schedule is next month, so if you really want to make sure I get your vote, I'd suggesting sending it a day or so early.
