Dinosaur Toy Forum Diorama Contest 2018 - poll
« on: August 27, 2018, 03:27:54 PM »


The poll to decide the winners of the Dinosaur Toy Forum Diorama Contest 2018, sponsored by Urzeitshop, is now open!

Good luck to all 62 participants and many thanks to each and every one of you for taking part! Thanks also to everyone who takes the time to vote, and thanks to our very kind sponsor, Urzeitshop, who have provided some generous prizes for the contest this year.

The poll will run for 30 days and you can vote for your top ten [10] entries. Take your time when voting because once you've selected your dioramas, they can't be changed later. You're allowed to vote for yourself.

The entries will remain anonymous throughout the voting process so please don't give any hints, clues, or discuss which dioramas belong to whom. Also, please don't discuss which dioramas you voted for until after the poll closes. Otherwise, general discussion about the entries is more than welcome!

The forum rules and details of how the prizes will be allocated are here: http://dinotoyblog.com/forum/index.php?topic=6724.0

Well, I voted. I will admit that, to simplify things, I did award votes based on several self-created subcategories (of varying degrees of rigour  :P ), but nevertheless, all the entries are great, and there is a good variety of styles.

I think it'll take awhile till I am going to vote, just too many photos to choose from! Well there is a month to decide so that's good.
I am really blown away by the quality of some, and others are very creative!

Dumb question but are these models custom made or are they models one can actually buy?

To ensure the dioramas are anonymous I think it might be best to leave that question unanswered until after the poll - if they are customs then I'm sure the diorama makers are itching to reveal themselves.

Fairs! Was just hoping that, if they were manufactured, I'd be pointed in the right direction to obtaining one. But yeah, these really do look like customs, I'll just wait til the winners are announced to ask again :D
