Here is R Kapuaala's figure contest.


I've collected all the entries here: http://www.outsidetrains.com/mls/NYfigures08.html I went back to the archive to see if I've missed anything.


-------------------------


Thanks Tom, that is very handy indeed. BTW, I noticed after reviewing a few of the entries that they do not meet all the requirements of the entries. There are some fine entries that I would NOT like to see disqualified because they don't meet the complete description of an entry.

I would also like to invite folks to begine scoring.
Remember, we need to use a 10 point vote system 1 being interesting 10 being interesting,
technically challenging,
artistically pleasing,
original,
Captures the holiday theme
People scoring the sculptures would need to qualify their scores with a brief description of how they arrived at their numerical value.
I know that sounds a little anal, but I want to be as fair as possible to all entries.


 ----


The rules:
[*]The contest will be from today, till January 25th and judging ends January 31st [*]The contestants must not be Chris Wallas or anyone who produces commercial figures or anyone related to me by marriage or blood [*]To enter you must post an image of your best seasonal figure (Xmas, hanaka, qwanza, makahiki, etc...) or your best self portrait to this topic. [*]All entries must include a short description of the materials used, the season they represent or why the contestant feels it is a good likeness of themselves. [*]Any entry lacking the appropriate description will have 10 points shaved off their over all score. [*]Contestants may enter no more than 3 figures [*]Judges will be anyone who reads this topic whether they be animal, vegetable or mineral [*]Judges will rate each image and assign a value of 1 - 10 based on what ever critera you want to use as long as there are no zeros, because in my own opinion there are not zeros where art is concerned. [*]It would be nice if judges explain why they are giveing a certain score to a piece [*]Judges must use the quote option when judging a piece so there can be no confusion what piece they are judging [*]Contestantants may not judge their own pieces [*]On January 25th  I will review all entries and votes, add them up, and then announce the winner on this topic by January 31st .

I don't think you have to withdraw if you haven't made an entry.


Hope you're feeling better or the birthdays might not be much fun.

It's voting time!

All the entries are at http://www.outsidetrains.com/mls/NYfigures08.html

A summary of the rules:

1. Even if you entered a figure, you can judge, you just can't judge your own.
2. The only people excluded from judging are Jack and myself.
3. Judges have to use a 10 point judging system. No negative points
4. You can judge 1 or all of the entries
5. You must include the name of the entry, the points you are giving the entry and a brief (or long) explanation on why you think this person deserves those points.
6. Judging will be conducted over a 7 day period and Jack and I will tally the points, deducted any from entries that don't meet the guidelines discussed previously and announce the first and second place winners 4 days after the judging stops.

Glad I thought to make a page. None have been lost in the server disaster and recovery.
