I’m pleased to announce the winners of the recent Dinosaur Toy Forum Diorama Contest – 2009, sponsored by Faunacasts. Thanks to everyone who entered and voted! 17 unique dioramas were entered this year and 43 members took part in the voting process. All of the entries and the results of the voting poll can still be seen here on the Dinosaur Toy Forum. But without further ado, the winners are as follows.
First place was a three way tie – but each wins first prize – a Tyrannosaurus rex by sculpted by Malcolm Mlodoch (Dinonikes) of Faunacasts. There are also banners for all the winners to parade around on the forum if they wish! The three first place winners are:
Radman with his entry titled “Diorama in early Cretaceous Africa – Jobaria versus Afrovenators”
Pilkington with his diorama titled “Hunting Party”
and Tomhet with his diorama titled “Cretaceous Hunt”
In second place, winning a Dilophosaurus by Faunacasts, is Pangolinmoth with his diorama titled “Lonely Stego”
In third place, winning an Ophthalmosaurus by Faunacasts, is Bokisaurus with his diorama titled “Just another day at the beach”
Congratulation to all prize winners!
There are also three close runners up, who receive an honorable mention here:
“Cornered!” by Tetonbabydoll
“The Permo-Triassic” by Hyneria
“On the lookout” by Bjeast
Thanks to everyone who took part in the contest this year, and to everyone who voted. Hopefully the contest next year will be just as popular! A final ‘thank you’ goes to our kind sponsor Faunacasts for providing such amazing prizes.
