We are a community dedicated to exploring the
beauty and wonder of fractals. Fractaldreams welcomes submissions of all types of fractal art and all members

We would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for all of the entries and enthusiasm for our first of many contests.  This was a very hard decision for all of us involved in the voting process.  Two Admins and the Vice Admin narrowed 48 entries down to 3 different picks each, for a total of 9 finalists.  Once the 9 finalists were chosen, we had two Artists, one a talented fractal artist :iconhalcyon83: and the other a talented Varied / Pencil Artist :iconpurpledaizie: use a Points system to choose the Winners. The points were based on the following criteria, with 10 possible points for each:

1. Clear, quality render with no unintentional noise.

2. Clear color (not muddy or too dark)

3. Good composition and placement

4. Reflects Dream Contest Theme

5. Fractal is foremost in piece

Although each and every one of you are winners in our book, we have decided to give honorable mention to the other top entries as follows:

Congratulations to all the winners..
AnnaKirsten's avatar
Excellent winning choices - and I'm encouraged to see that they aren't all Apo pictures in the winning slots too! Not that a lot of them aren't good, and the second place one is beautiful, but somehow I always feel that Apo out-does any other fractal format in votes for contests in general.

I particularly love Titia's FE works - she really has the knack with that program!
FractalDreams's avatar
Well we look at all fractal generating programs and we used the points system for clarity, etc... We had some beautiful entries in most all fractal programs. I know that two of my picks were not apo, and that's all I do

Yes Titia's work is always outstanding. :hug: Thank you you Anna :hug:
AnnaKirsten's avatar
Apo coming out on top seems to be a pretty general thing normally - not just here, but on other sites too. I think it's because there's so much new stuff going on with it all the time, and everyone just wants to have a go!
lauratyler's avatar
WOO HOOO *applause* I love them all, and I think your choices are wonderful. I have to say, first place REALLY caught my eye when I first saw it. Definitely dramatic with the color, very dark darks to very light lights. The whole spectrum.

Well done everyone! Congratulations to the winners!
