Australia has lots of rules and regulations.
also the prizes are most likely pre purchased and postage in one country wouldn't be as big of an issue.

However that's just a guess and I could be wrong.

I don't belive so.
However if I had to guess between now and the start of next week?

I don't think they would put up a time as judging can be very difficult and more time might be needed to choose the winers.

I know it's hard to wait around as the antisipation is killing everyone, but we should respect the judges carefull choosings.

From what I have seen Its not going to be a simple choice.

Don't stress yourself Arsevere as this was only open to Australian residents.

I have noticed a lot of artist who would have loved to submit artwork but unfortunately don't reside in Australia. :/

so this is a bit of a weird comment but i'm pretty certain my account is set to the wrong email does anyone know how to change that?
have the winners been announced? if my email were wrong and i did perchance win something would i still be informed or am I to assume that hearing nothing means I have not won anything? just worried about missing out on something because of the wrong email.

its in your account settings to see what your email is to your DA account. Go to top right avatar into settings then on the left go to General tab. You should see the email in the list near the top.

Practice like no tomorrow.  I only started to learn how to draw 4 years ago (22 y.o. now).  You are only 13, you have nothing but time.  Keep practicing. Don't stop. :)

My art was horrible when I was your age! If you are that good the age you are now, I am sure in 10 years time you would be the next Michelangelo. Keep up the good work <3

Just thought i'd let you know, in your extended rules and regulations it says:
"ends at 11.59.59pm (AEST) on 12th December"
And on this post it says 
"ends at 11.59.59pm (AEST) on 14th December" 

And now the countdown says 1 hour left on the 13th????

Three different end times????

Bit confusing x)

The contest ended at 11:59:59 PM on the 14th. Unfortunately there was a typo in both the rules and in the countdown timer, but the category was set to end at the correct time. I'm super sorry for the confusion, but hopefully everyone got their entries in! :)

If anyone was unable to get their entries in for any reason, please send me a Note and explain your situation and I can work with you. 

Thank you!

i can try my best to explaining to you..

This website was in USA time, so they made in Australia time instead of 14th Dec, so which means its should be ends before 12th Dec by midnight. 

Hope this helps

Is the countdown clock correct..? The rules says ends at "11:59:59 pm (AEST) on December 14, 2015." but the countdown clock seems like its set to the 13th of December? If its due on the 14th it would be better, I am working on mine now :D

It means it finishes in the last minute before the 14th. It finishes just as the 14th begins.

The correct time 11.59.59pm (AEST) on 14th December. is Monday night. however the clock is set to Finnish up tonight (which by 11.59.59pm (AEST) 13th) but is actually 1am because they haven't counted in daylight savings.
Possibly this has been set up in America and they have miscalculated the day and time?
I would go by the count down to be safe, however you might be able to dispute if entry is after the countdown because they have stated 11.59.59pm (AEST) on 14th December.

However I believe the they have already extended this contest so if you have been working on some art you should have aimed to have it in by the 12th.
