Here are the results of the last contest at GrimGloomTale
that will be enclosed in 2014 alone. There were 28 absolutely fabulous entries and the voting was probably the hardest in all of our contests so far (on this topic, I'll write quite a bit below, so please don't skip it). The votes are counted and it's time to announce the winners. You can view all the entries and the contest's details here
is a beautiful, intricate depiction of the nine daughters of the giant Ægir and goddess Ran from Norse mythology. The attention to the detail and the dynamics of the whole picture are lovely to look at.
Before I get to the voting plans mentioned above, I'd like to thank all the participants for such beautiful entries. Many of the voters expressed how hard it was to choose just three to give them points. Big thanks to the prize contributors - I'll send you notes with details today yet. And of course, thank you for all those who voted.Now onto the important issues. There are two topics that I'd like to discuss with you: Voting.
The current vote system has been working well so far, but some of you expressed that it's sometimes very difficult to choose only 3 works. While I'd like to retain the voting itself (as opposed to having only a couple of judges to choose the places), do you have any ideas for a different system? What are your thoughts on this matter? Literature vs. visual submissions.
Now this has been a problem for the last couple of contests. While it wasn't much of an issue in the first contests, it's getting worse with every next one. I've been thinking about splitting the contest into visual submissions part and literature part. However, this has its disadvantages, mainly in the prize sections, I think you can imagine. What are your thoughts on this?
Until we get through those two issues, we'll have the contests on hold, but I reckon that the next one will start in December.
Have a great week.
