I hate to be the bearer of sad tidings, but, as per usual, the large number of entries will delay the announcement of winners. Perhaps next year we shouldn't give a date for the winners to be announced. I'm looking forward to announcing the winners myself, because then I'll be able to come out of my self-imposed silence on the tons of great MOCs we've seen this year.

Please don't delay a MOC for the next 10 months in the hopes that it might fit a category. That would very much go against the spirit of the CCC, which is to encourage building, not to get someone to tie up their collection for a year. Also, as others have noted, we change the categories every year to encourage creativity, so what might have been a great entry for this year might not fit next year's contest at all. Also remember there are other contests throughout the year, some sponsored by the admins and others by forum members. Some of these contests are regular, such as the battles contest and the micro contest that have been held each year for a few years. Others come up sporadically, like when we held a chess contest to celebrate the new chess sets, or last year when LEGO donated a complete line of new sets to sponsor a contest.
