What a biased set of semifinalists. You guys chose too many hatters while ignoring a good portion of better deviations.

I want to thank the Judges for their hard work as this contests brought out tons of artists of all calibers and the judging must have been tiresome with so many fine works and original concepts to the theme. I enjoyed viewing all of the artists young and old, beginner or pro. You all did such a great job!

It's sad how many people that are bitter about the semifinals selection. I understand that not getting picked stings, after all, we all want to win. What is annoying, though, is that some feel the need to degrade the semifinalists' work and say they only got picked because they were popular (or point out that they broke the rules), or the need to degrade the judges who went through the entries of this contest and say they just chose 25 random pictures.

To the semifinalists: congratulation and good luck!

I think this contest wasn't judging by original or creative interpretations of ideas, it was judged by number of fav ,

so that means you do not have to be creative just get bunch of freinds :D

The contest was not judged by number of favorites.

So... yeah.

its so many amazing art works you do not even look at,and Im not the only one person who think that, and it does not mean that i hate semi finalist

margotdent's avatar
But the thing is, the judges do look at ALL of the entries.

So despite what people think, that is the case.

I have to agree with you margot, because if you check it carefully, a lot of people missed these artwork at the beginning or is mostly like how I said it, most people tend to view their artwork by popular not the newest and they tend to miss out a lot of good artwork. I was looking at some of these finalists work and discovered that they only got favorites or views right after they were selected for semi-finalist, so right away you know that the judges did not go by favoritism.

Huh, I guess this contest wasn't looking for creative interpretations after all.

:depressed: I'm so sad I'm not one of the semifinalist and I think that the movie is called Alice in wonderland, and most of the semi finalist are like hte hatter... just like the movie more attention to the hatter... (I love the hatter, but is like Alice in wonderland not the hatter in wonderland):confused:

Any way I had great shots but I'm not blond that's why I'm not a semifinalist???? :steaming:

The contest was about picturing yourself in wonderland. Alice isn't the only one who is in wonderland, so people who made the hatter are following the rules and concept.
Lil-Deathmate's avatar
Yes, I'm not like talking about the people who did the hatter, I'm talking about that there are more finalist of the hatter than the other characters in wonderland as you say, for example the cat, or the white queen and the bunny

I saw once one Alice In Wonderland film, and in that movie, her hair was brown.

I don't understand where did they got the idea, that Alice is blond?
The book(s) didn't say anything about, what colored her hair was.

AND, the original illustration wasn't even colored!
So... why is Alice (almost) always blonde? :confused:
Lil-Deathmate's avatar
Yes, the one where Whoopi Goldberg is the cat??? That is a great movie... And I don't know but, maybe is because the concept of the pretty blond girl or something.
