Good job to everyone! There were soooo many awesome entries! There were multiple times a new entry appeared and i thought: "wow this is awesome, this is def. going to win" and then another even more awesome entry appeared...great stuff.

This is an awesome contest and i like it that the number of participants is growing every year. I want to thank everyone ánd ofcourse the judges for organizing this great contest.

Indeed. You guys have done a bang up job as usual. It's going to be a lonnngggg wait until the next contest. Here's hoping you guys bring back the admin category. I always loved the idea of letting members pick one of your great MOCs. I miss seeing your work.

Wow! The winning entries are all so awesome. I'm thrilled that I made "Honorable Mention". To have my name included with the others and the winner is a real honor. My mind gets blown away every time I see what this community is capable of building. Great job everyone, including the judges and organizers.

I know it’s been said, but congratulations to the winners for an outstanding job and major kudos to all the other contestants for helping to make November and December the best two months to be a castle fanatic. Everyone really put forth their best and it was a real treat to see the results.
And of course, a huge thank you should go to the admins who organize and judge this yearly treat. I do not envy your jobs. :)
Let us stop for a moment and ponder the signiture...





Ok, enough of that!

It seems I'm late to the party but I'll say my dew. For the thousandth time, congrats to the winners. Every year this excellent community of builders surprises me with the ideas they comes up with. I aspire to come at least close to your talents, truly I do mean that.
Thanks a million times over to the Admins who ran the contest, you guys are such workmen.
Grats to the honorable mentions as well. I was overjoyed to see that I got one. :D

Thanks for hosting another great contest.

So the weeks of building finally end. It was fun and hard work. Thanks to the Admin for changing Gork to Giorgio Chronas. Special thanks to Aaron for posting in my Mocpages and thus showing me the way to these fun pages. It seems I got close to your Bathroom ... :D

Since I was new within this contest I would like to understand it a bit better, just in case I join again this year, so here are two questions to the Admins:

1. I was not sure if we would have been allowed to use in all categories pieces from Brickforge. Example the animals in the farm category or a bow in a history entry...

2. It seems that the general idea and the looks of a Moc are most important. Example the Miller's Nightmare has a fantastic look and is very original in the idea. The question to me is, does playability play a role and if yes, how do you define playability. To me playability would be opening up hatches and walls and getting into the Moc. A very good example for such playability would be Stone Goblins "Gold mine".

All in all it was fun building and entering and seeing so many nice Mocs, which inspired me for even more ideas...
