Hello dear friends!

Finally here we go! After quite a few days of selecting, reviewing and voting I proudly announce the round of the last sixteen artists of the Slightly Different Art Contest!!!

We had an over all participation of 311 artists. They had to show their artistic variety in different categories with five of their works. To find out more about diversity in style and used mediums, skills and originality we checked many galleries altogether. Quite a few very good artists couldn't get by because of the lack of variety in their works. It was really hard for all of us to elect the ones we liked most. A total of fivteen judges including myself cast their votes for five artists each in order of their preferences (ranking).

For those who are interested, these have been The Entries.


The public voting

First I planned to do a public voting via poll but after some recommendations I decided to do it via notes. So if you want to participate in the voting please consider the following:

  • Send me a note with subject Vote.
  • You can vote for 3 artists. Type the numbers on which the artists are listed and give them a ranking (1 - 3).
  • I don't accept votings from new members who opened their account after January 1st 2007.
  • You cannot vote for yourself.
  • The voting ends on Friday, January 19, 2007.
  • The winners will be released in another news article.

Oops I voted wrong then..:giggle: I will need to send you a new note. So if we give them a one that means we think they should be in first and a 2 would be second and 3 would be third? Is this correct..lol Thanks sorry for the confusion:hug:

If I vote and name the deviants with the numbers, what does the number mean? 1 point or 1st place? Just want to be sure. :-)

No. 1 means vote for first place and gets 3 points in the counting.

oh right - i thought it saved confusion because in the beginning i used to upload manips and photos in with the drawings and people got confused as they didnt want to see it....
i have different sets of people with different taste on the 2 accounts
the 3rd one didnt need to exist really - i may turn it into a stock account
I'm really sorry if i made your life hard
