What a fun contest! Hoping to offer a better triglavian themed entry next year. :smiley:

OP updated up to this point!


Submissions are now closed! It usually takes the judges about two to three weeks to Judge and then we’ll have a short ceremony to announce the winners. I will announce time and place as we get closer!

Thanks all who entered this year!


If you don’t think any entries this year qualify for the prizes I donated, feel free to roll them over into next year’s competition.


Have the winners been announced? I’ve been busy with RL the last couple of weeks

I don’t think so

Not yet. Results should be announced soon tho.

Winners will be announced Sunday, June 26th, at 19:00 NEST.

We usually do an “event” where winners are announced and participants can socialize.

Afterwards, the results will be posted here afterwards and prizes distributed within 72 hours.

This year the event will be in in Tanoo on the Tebu Ankhiman freeport at its “Starlight Ballroom”
