Alright, people, the moment you've all been waiting for has arrived! After much deliberation and soul-searching, I have selected this year's winners. This year was particularly difficult. There were over a hundred entries and the skill level sky-rocketed! I wish I had 30 prizes to give away, because there were about thirty entries that deserve an honorable mention. It was difficult to trim down the entries to the top ten. It was nearly impossible to pick three out of those ten. :)

But, without further ado...the Winners!

1st place:
Rocko's Goblin Attack

2nd place:
Weasel47's Family Reunion

3rd place:
Olog's Stone Golem Attack!

Congratulations to the winners! Thank you to everyone who entered. It was a pleasure to see these great MOCs come flowing in.

Build On!
Josh

PS. I need the winners to PM me their addresses so that I can prepare the prizes for mailing...

Congratulations to the winners. I'm disappointed I did not place, but I happily concede to such masterfully built entries.

Congratulations!
I actually didn't expect these MOC's would win.

That was fast, well done, Josh! (and all entrants of course ;))

I was hoping for Family Reunion but Rocko's was extremely well done as well. Congrats!

Huzzah for Josh, and Huzzah for the winners! (and huzzah for all who entered!) Super-fast turn-around time Josh, I'm sure everyone really appreciates it! Great picks, I'm sure it was very hard to narrow them down.

I kinda had a feeling Rocko would place, congrats on the first place!

Super work everyone, it was fantastic to see all the entries, hopefully I have time to enter next year! (?)

Thanks Josh, that WAS fast, I'm a little dissapointed with the winners ((because) I didn't win :( ) but you da judge, judge! Actually I am a little dissapointed with the judging and not because I didn't win.

Wait, in the third one the dragon is flying. How did he do that? I thought photoshoping wasn't allowed. :shock:

Wowsers! This just made my day. Usually the only thing I win is 2 bucks from scratch off lottery tickets. :P

Great contest, by the way. A lot of top notch MOCs by some heavyweight contenders. This was a great dive into the castle theme for Olog and I hope he'll continue with more in this genre. Weasel47's entry was super creative and has inspired some current project ideas of my own. If it were up to me, there would be about 10 first place guys for this contest. Fantastic entries like Darkspawn's and others are going to be inspiring to people for years to come.

Many thanks to everyone and Josh for hosting the contest and to the mysterious anonymous donor for providing the sets. :)
