  • Best Project Design Contest 2005

    It's past judgement time

    Do we here on the forum get to find out who won the contest?

    Hey Grizz,
    Don't know if it helps, but it wasn't me, LOL. I saw that they would notify the winner on Jan. 15 and I didn't get notified.

      Best Project Design Contest

      Hi guys!

      Patience, patience.....

      We did choose the winners - There were about 130 entries and tons of beautiful, creative projects. It was very difficult to make the final selections. We'll be running coverage of the contest in the next issue. In the meantime, I'll check with our publisher to see if we can post something on the website.

        Well Shannon we will all sit licking our wounds

        I am looking forward to seeing the projects.

        If I had only entered 129 of those entries I would have had a chance

        It was a great idea to find new projects and designers for the magazine

          Would there be a way to see all entries even if they did not win??? Could make for some interesting discussions.

              Now Grizz not sure if you are just being hard on yourself or the theme of your design was humorus. Would still like to see them. What would be nice is if we could see them before we find out the winners. This way we can pick our own winners and see how they match the judges decisions. What do you think?? Look forward to seeeing the creative minds we have on this site.

                That would be fun. I reckon a bit controversial too.

                  No Way - Keep Some Things Private

                  Well, I would like to go on record here as strongly opposed to making all the entries viewable to the general public.

                  This would indeed make for a heated controversial discussion and that is something that has been avoided on this forum - it is refreshing to have the comraderie found here. Making all entries available to viewing is baiting a huge debat as to personal opinions and the popularity of some members here on this forum.

                  I trust the people in the know running the competition made their decisions based on specific criteria and look forward to hearing their decision and congratulating the winner.

                    Good to hear that they'll publish pictures about the contest in the next Magazine, I'm anxious to see the winning projects. I hope that other entrees will also be published in future issues and that the designers might post some of their work..I do believe that it is up to the individuals to share what they submitted and just want them to know that I would Love to see more new projects and designs posted on this forum

                      I have to agree with Toni.
                      The publisher has selected winning entries based on their criteria.
                      I am sure there will be some wonderful winning entries here.
                      If an entrant did not win and they would like to submit a project to the forum for a critique, that is their choice.
                      I also think it would be in the entrants best interest to check with the publisher before doing so.

                      I would think, in the grand scheme of things, many of these patterns will be published whether they won or not.

                      Give the folks at Fox Chapel a chance to sort through the patterns. We all have lots of projects to do from Issue 22.

                        I have seen contests for cabinet making, bowl turning, and many many other contests where all entrys were shown. What is so bad about showing the entrys. If the person did not want them to be seen then they should not have entered. I think you Toni and others underestimate the viewers here. Controversy? Nobody can change the judges decisions. You go to any scrollsaw picnic there are the entrys and the judges pick the winners. The losers don't go knock the judges on the head because they lost. Wow I think that is pretty rough to say that we can't handle the judges decisions. This is just my opinion but.

                            Tell you what, if I get the purple saw and you get the sand flee.... we can trade even up!

                            That is the one I had my eye on the whole time.

                                Partly because I have trouble seeing small letters with my one remaining eye and also because my existing wireless keyboard gave up the ghost a couple of days back I went out this morning and bought a new wired keyboard from our local Oice Depot.
