Dinosaur Diorama Contest 2009 – Winners!

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”

  1. “The Permo-Triassic” really looks like the one in Stuttgart.

  2. Congratulations to all winners! These dioramas were all amazing works of art, easily good enough to be in museum exhibits. Can’t wait for next year’s contest!
