I have hundreds, but they all require me to go camping in the wilderness with my valuable figures.

By diorama, are we talking only about photos of prehistoric figures in nature (forests, etc.) or can we build our diorama out of resin, etc?
If the sculptor has nothing but science his hands will have no art.

I have another question. This kinda wasn't clear with me, but do the pictures need a title and a backstory, or just a title?

If I remember correctly I think just a title is good.

Are we allowed to use a trademark as long as it is not small or obtrusive to prevent plagarism of our work? Thanks.
Authors with varying competence have suggested dinosaurs disappeared because of meteorites...God's will, raids by little green hunters in flying saucers, lack of standing room in Noah's Ark, and palaeoweltschmerz—Glenn Jepsen

The voting and judging should be anonymous, so you can't include anything that might identify you.
I could put a small dinotoyblog.com watermark on each entry. However, I think the risk of any plagiarism is minimal (I'm not aware of any issues arising from past contests). Of course, worried entrants could always refrain from entering the contest, but I'd ask them to take the risk in the spirit of competition and fun :)

Are contestants in the competition from any country? Please inform me because I'm from Armenia and I don't know if I can participate.
