GoMe - PhotoQuest Remembered Results and Changes

Post by Leonardo » Wed Sep 02, 2009 9:42 am

Shorah explorers!

The Contest Team of the Guild of Messengers is proud to announce the winners of the PhotoQuest Remembered Contest - Abandoned Category.
We usually post our announcements on the GoMe Newspaper (Where R U Uru?), but (as you may have noticed) there has been no August issue. The Newspaper Team took a little break for summer, but the September issue will be out ASAP!

However, back to the Contest:
The PhotoQuest Remembered Contest category, Abandoned, had some very 'thoughtful' images entered. No junkyard clunkers at all!

After a few days of thoughts our 3 Judges all voted for the same image, agreeing that it was the most abandonement-inspiring picture:
"Art is Never Finished, only abandoned" - Leonardo Da Vinci
Image

An image submitted by Nerf Bludgeon, who, with this entry, wins our PhotoQuest Remembered Contest for the second time consecutively! His previous image,A Tree Grows in the Desert, was from the Cleft, too. It seems to be a very special place for all the Explorers, full of meanings.

The second place goes to Grass grows on a fallen illusion by laughingpineapple, also winner of our first PhotoQuest Remembered Contest Stone Category.

And the third place goes to Impaled Bahro Skeleton- Gahreesen prison by our Messenger Nanouk_Metal!

We want to thank our 3 Judges for this Contest: Nynaveve, JWPlatt and Silverdragonesse

The Category for the next Contest is Doorways. Let us see all the doors that you can find in Uru!!
We'll start accepting pictures on September 3rd and the deadline is September 20th 2009.

We are going to make a change in how the pictures are voted. We want all of you to participate in this, not just 3 Judges, so from this contest there will be a new "10 stars" voting system on our website. You will be able to choose one of ten marks for each image and the winning entry will be the one with the highest mark. See the Contest rules for more informations.

We hope to see many entries!

Shorah explorers!!

It's time for a new round of the GoMe PhotoQuest Remembered Contest!

But first, the announcements of the last one:
For the Doorways Category we had just a few entries, but they very well done :D

The First place goes to laughingpineapple with the image "The door is a lie"
Image
Which gained an average vote of 8.8 (10 is max)

The Second place goes to Corvus with her image "No Trepassing"
Image
With an average vote of 7.8

And the Third place goes to Nanouk_Metal with "Doorway to more Mysteries. lol"
Image
With an average vote of 6.8

As said earlier, it's time for a new contest round!!
The Category/theme of this month is lighting! There are tons of nice light sources on Uru and MystV :D
The Contest will start today and will end on Sunday October 25th. We will keep receving the vote till Sunday November 1st, to allow the "last minute" images to be voted.

Hoever, due to the apparent lack of interest in this contest the next one will be a "testing" one, this means that we'll see if it's the case to keep it going or shutdown the PhotoQuest Remembered Contests looking at the number of pics submitted and votes casted (voting for the images are public, everyone can vote).

Shorah!
