SUMMER 2018 Competition: Results

Recommended Posts

Congratulations to all that entered! You all picked very unique ways of portraying the end of the world, ways I wouldn't have expected going in. It was a refreshing experience for me and there was serious merit to all the entries submitted.
I don't think we're going to have another competition in a while because of the low turnout this time, but we'll play it by ear. Because of these same circumstances, I can't grant the main prize we had going, but the HoF will still be considered.
Thank you all again for participating!

1. @Ken320 - 69/100
2. @Gustav Johnson - 62/100
3. @Noah Brode - 59/100

It’s nice to win things and it doesn’t happen that often to be blasé about it, so I’m very happy for the win! It was never assured in any case. I am also happy that the two remaining contestants, Gustav and Noah, kept up their end of the bargain and produced fine works of their own. I wish the others had done so, but they did not. It would have for a more interesting competition. Similarly, I wished there was more than one judge. It’s really not fair to the competitors, and especially to Monarcheon, to have to shoulder the burden alone. But she did and I’m very thankful to her as well.

I can’t quibble with the scoring. I agree with most of her appraisals, from concept to execution to presentation. I got such a late start, which is a little uncharacteristic for me. I like to think that I would have mitigated some of the problems with more time. But as Judge Judy is fond of saying, Coulda woulda shoulda.


Thanks, YC's

Congratulations, @Ken320 on a well-deserved victory, and also to Gustav for a very worthy entry. If this were a college seminar, I would pray that we'd all be graded on a curve. Thanks as always to Monarcheon for her patient and tireless dedication to judging and reviewing for these competitions and the site at large. And Gustav hit the nail on the head when he said these themed competitions can really give you a creative boost, and a deadline is always a good motivator. I'd be in favor of continuing the competitions; I have no qualms with being either a judge or contestant as needed. 

Yeah @Monarcheon it's okay with me to use this for your project, although my write-up was pretty... cataclysmic 😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎

Good job, Noah.... 😄

Go for it, @Monarcheon. Most of my stuff I don't mind if people use it for free and without recognition. I'll work on the write-up this weekend that explains a little better the connection between my music's characters and the story's characters and the techniques I used to describe each.
