And I just realized, that someone really had the patience to cut out my background and replace it with a white one! :twitch:
If someone had told me, I had one with white background on my Computer....

You all really did a great job. Respect!

I do hope it is not the same wall for every CCCC ;) excesive painting every year to cover the holes can be noticeable ;)

A major "Thank you!" to the admins for taking the time to run such a great contest. Also, a "Thank you!" to all who entered the contest; seeing everyone pull out the stops and build their best for the CCC is always a highlight of my year. Congratulations to all of you, and especially to this year's winners. The victories are certainly well deserved!

Oh my. This is my very first CCC, and I did not expect this coming! I feel so shocked and honored, thank you.
I think my heart jumped out of my chest. :twitch: This is awesome, I don't know how to thank you enough guys!

Congrats to all the winners. C: There were so many great entries. I would certainly not have wanted to be one of the judges!

This was my first contest and I'm looking forward to the next. ^__^

Congrats to all the winners! All of the entries looked great! My personal favorite was the "Destroy the Neighbors" idea. I couldn't explain why, but it just made me smile every time I looked at it. Maybe next year I will enter something (once I get more pieces). Again, congrats to the winners!

Hey all,

Once again, we'd like to thank those who either donated prizes directly or donated the money to purchase prizes.

BrickArms and BrickForge both donated custom accessories, and BrickForge also donated a set. Please patronize these fan-based businesses.

The Brothers Brick underwrote several of our prizes. Please read their blog. Also remember that if you click through the sales links on their site, they get some monetary compensation, which goes to pay for their blog and then they use the extra money to support the fan community. C'mon, you're probably going to buy from Amazon, Toys R Us, or LEGO.com anyway, you might as well get their through the BB.

LEGO donated a large set as well. I'm guessing you don't need any encouragement to buy their products. :wink:

Ben Ellermann, Trevor Van Aalst, Rich Stehnach, and a donor who wishes to remain anonymous all donated prizes. A huge thanks to each of these. Ben gets a double thanks, because in addition to donating prizes, he scoured eBay etc to buy great prizes using some of the monetary donations.

Thank you to all of these!

Bruce

Next year i will hopefully get around to putting in some entries, though the quality of entries this year was quite amazing to see!

Good job admins for taking time to judge, and those who donated to the contest. You guys are the one's who make this contest so great. :D

Thanks very much for hosting this contest admins, and congradulations winners, all of the winning entries were great :D !

On a related note, can we expect any contest criticism threads from any of you, or have you decided against such a difficult endeavor?
Back to the front!

Amazing entries! What I really like the most about this contest is all the new, never-before-seen building methods that come out of it! Every year is a stretch! :wink:

Congratulations to all the winners!

I knew it was going to be tough with all the amazing entries in each category. Nevertheless, I'm just as satisfied that a couple of my entries even made honorable mention. There's always hope for the next contest! :)
