I have this little personnal bet going with myself that says the new Battats will figure in at least ten of the entries this year......right?

It'll be a nice change from the excessive Papo proportions of recent years ;)

Shocker, I dont own a single Papo, so not hard for me to get behind that idea , think you are right.

I've had some queries about the deadline, so just to be clear and to avoid confusion, I've updated the wording in the instructions. The deadline is September 27th. All entries received after 23:59 hours (11.59pm) GMT on September 27th will be invalid. So, entries sent on September 27th will be valid, so long as they are sent before the deadline. Note the deadline is GMT, so please adjust your local clocks accordingly!

Cant wait to start voting n seeing the entries. :)
Walking With Monsers:
[about Lystrosaurus] Astonishingly, their vast herds make up more than half of all life on Earth. Never again will a single species do so well.

Walking With Monsters: (Hynerpeton) To avoid injury the males demonstrate their strength  in a strange  push up contest.

 I bet there's going to be so many good dioramas this year, I'm excited to vote this year, I can't wait!

And on an irrelevant note the voting takes place on a day that a fossil dig does near my town, crazy!

Looks like I've got a dinosaur filled day this Saturday...AWESOME! ;D

The deadline is Saturday but it might take me a few days after that to sort out the entries and set up the poll. I'll aim to have the poll up by Sunday and it will run for a few weeks. :)

Glad I got mine in early before the deadline this year and was able to create one that noone , not even the all knowing Gwangi, will figure out is mine !
