A big thanks to the moderator for putting all this together - it must have been a lot of work!  :)

If it's not against the rules to ask... does anyone know what company makes the Brontosaur figures in diorama #54? (I'm not asking about the photographer, just the company that made the figures).

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.

They look like customised Safari Apatosaurus.

Yep, all anonymous.

The animals in 49 are Henodus and Placodus.

At first I decided to vote for my entry ONLY. But I actually vote my TOP 8.  ;D
As I have stated in the last contest, I don't like dioramas that are "photoshop masterpieces", so I prefer those that don't use it at all, or use it just to vanish a wire or an OOPArt.
Good look to everyone.

I've elected not to vote for my own entry as a matter of principle, though perhaps I might regret that in time  ;D

I sincerely hope you're joking. But, I do agree with your point about photoshop- entries that overuse that programme don't tend to get my vote.

Is it to late to post an entry?  ???
I may not like feathered dinosaurs and stumpy legged Spinosaurs, but I will keep those opinions to myself, I will not start a debate over it, I promise. 😇

I made a dramatic Youtube video of all the entries! I didn't add the titles and numbers but the video gives a nice overview of all the dioramas, at least.

Such a great selection of entries. This one will be really hard. I think I'll take Admins advice and wait awhile to mull over my decisions and look them over again.

There are modern elements in at least 3 dioramas (?) I used to think it was against the rules of the contest.  C:-)
So will next contest allow laser guns on dinosaurs?  :o

The contest criteria are intentionally open-ended to allow for such creativity - it has certainly added some diversity to proceedings this year :) If, in the future, we continue to have as many entries as this year, then we could have categories.

I keep trying to figure out entry 47 and if it is an original scene or the shot from the movie with the human figure altered......
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 entire scene appears recreated. The Tyrannosaurus is the Papo running rex, the car and fence appear hand made.

Entry No 47: If this question is serious – it's clearly all a model installation in perfect rain. The windows of the car is blind, the T-Rex a Papo and the running figure a miniature. But everyone looking at this is promptly in the original movie scene. So perfect done.

Just a quick note. If we find that anyone is cheating (or attempting to cheat) in the contest polls, this will result in disqualification, and the result will be corrected accordingly. We have ways to tell.  C:-)
