Announcing the Winners of "When Darkness Falls"


We are pleased to announce the winners of the "When Darkness Falls" photomanipulation contest! This was an official, Community-Relations backed competition that was part of Project Educate: Photomanipulate back in June.

Voting was difficult because there were so many great entries, but when we got to work, three very clear winners emerged.

With more than 130 brilliant entries, we felt this contest was a resounding success. We wish to thank all of you who entered; you helped make it successful, and we are really grateful.
You can view all of the entries here.

You can read about the goals of the contest here:

Contest reminder: 'When Darkness Falls'Darkness falls across the land . . .
The midnight hour is close at hand . . .
Creatures crawl in search of blood . . .
To terrorize your neighborhood!

- Michael Jackson, Thriller
You decide what happens when darkness falls!
Is it macabre? Is it fantasy? Is it emotional?
It is up to you.

Welcome to our 2012 Photomanipulation Contest, "When Darkness Falls."
This contest is being held by Aeirmid and The-Sacred-Space.
We are grateful to Community Relations for backing this contest.
Any photomanipulator can join, and all are welcome.

Your task is to complete the sentence:
When darkness falls, _____
using a photomanipulation!
[In other words: Show us what happens when Darkness falls!]
You can interpret the sentence to mean anything you want.
It doesn't have to be dark or horror/macabre,
but it must be very clear tha

I will notify donors about the winners. If you do not hear from them or receive your prizes within, say, a week, please let me know.

If you have won a physical prize (llama, t-shirt, print, etc.) please pick the one you would like to have from the dA store and add it to your wishlist IN YOUR SIZE. For the llamas, the link is deviantartgear.deviantart.com/…. Also, note Aeirmid with size choices for t-shirts and links directly to the prints and t-shirts that you want. Please do this ASAP so I don't have to hunt you down; I don't have time to do that. :D Thanks!!



I also want to thank my fellow judges:
