Some superb entries again this year - and I really enjoy the difficulty of judging all these (if that makes sense!) - great stuff  Cool

Personally i'd be very interested in hearing from you judges about why you chose the winners you did.

As a full time modelmaker and designer I've found that my 'winners' often differ markedly from the judges.. It would be really interesting to hear what criteria (if any) where used, what did they like about the entry etc. to make them select them as winners.

Same here, there is stuff in there that i would never choose myself. Not saying it isn't good of course, but just not my style. I like painting more of a gritty stye, so naturally bright colours don't fancy me. One of the reasons i always delay the nap project  Grin Grin

at the end of the day it is art so is very subjective, a certain style will be liked by one person and not another.

as a competitor it would be interesting to see what points each entry received (not necessary which judge scored what points)

another factor will always be the differing standard of photography but i'm not sure how that can be got around (he says wishing he'd traded in his 10 year old camera  Sad)

For those who are interested, I've popped up the summary of the points allocated to each of the entries, along with some of the comments given by the Judges:

I think Peter & Matt have hit the nail on the head regarding style.

One man's meat is another man's poison (If I can put it like that)
Certainly no poison in all these brilliant entries.....(You know what I mean ! Wink Smiley)

We all have our own (let's use the word again) subjective ideas of what 'stands out'.

It WAS headache pills time !  Wink Grin

Yes, there are several entries that I would have picked as my winners. That said, I can understand why the eventual winners were picked and they are certainly worthy of the titles.

Perhaps the judges should be allowed to do what the Model Engineer judges used to do and allocate "Commended" and "Highly Commended" to deserving cases.

  Great work,and well done to the winners, and all the other entrants who took part. I know that just picking up a paintbrush and taking part is good enough for me,though i must work on the photo side of things. Any hints?  Anyhow the hobby keeps me sane and allows me to dodge Tv "zombievacation" by the likes of big brother and j-kyle,which she who shall be obeyed must watch.

Congratulations to all the winners!
It was an honor to participate in the competition for the first time, and I am very happy with my results, considering the high level that we have seen in the entries (BH62, you are my new idol...)  drooling

Cheers!
