Great effort by everyone! Congrats!! I'll really have to look these over real good to whittle it down to five! Glad we can click on them to see the bigger pic this time. It really helps when trying to view the more complex, many-creatured dios. ^-^

Great work, everybody. It was really hard to make 5 choices as there were plenty more worthy of a vote.

Well, I could allow it so voters can change their votes, that way, those who didn't realise you could pick up to five dioramas can pick some additional choices. However, I don't want to allow voters to change their existing votes, because I think first impressions are important and seeing the results could influence decisions or introduce bias. And I can't do one without the other. Hmm. Gwangi, Takama, how badly do you want to cast those additional votes?

I've now updated the poll question to explicitly state five,

I am fine as well.


Also to whoever made that dragon, great job. (you can thank me when the contest concludes ;))

A true Dinosaur fan loves dinosaurs for what they are, not what he/she wants them to be.

Every single diorama has received at least one vote, except for one :'(

OK, I voted. Whew! That was a toughy! I had first narrowed it down to 9. But I'm happy to see that the 4 others I ended up not voting for still have high marks!  ^-^

Is there going to be more voting in the final round, or are the top 5 now going to the judges?

If I understood it right, the top 15 are going to the judges.

Interesting range of composition and technique.  I have some questions for the Ambush at Ghost Ranch diorama. Drop me a line.

thanks Randy

I don't understand why ''Jurassic Fight Club'' has so few votes. It's a fantastic diorama. I mean like the background is amazing!

Fair point Aram, I showed the dioramas to Mrs Crackington, thinking she would be wowed by, ahem, the most popular diorama so far as I was. However, she was most impressed by "Jurassic Fight Club", pity she can't vote!

There are quite a few with less votes than they should have I think.  :-\

 ;D Wow, amazing dioramas from everyone! It was very difficult to narrow it down to just five, however, I did.  At last. Good luck to all from me.

And I'm very annoyed I missed it  >:( There'd better be one next year.... <cough cough>  ^-^

We are 1/2 way through the public poll and 79 members have now cast their votes!
At the moment, I think 9 votes or more will see a diorama into round 2.
According to the results so far there are a few stand-out entries...but will the judges think the same?
