Second Annual Snowtroopers Diaroma Contest
« on: October 12, 2010, 01:35:16 PM »

Hi again everyone, let's make this thing official!

Here are the rules:

1. the diorama can be of anything star wars related - the more creative the better.
2. maximum of six pictures.
3. deadline to submit pics (create a thread in the announcement section) is 11:59pm PST December 1/2010.
4. No photoshop.
5. winner (if not in the toronto area) agrees to pay for the shipping cost of their prize.
6. we need at least 10 contestants or no prize will be awarded.
7. This contest is only open to residents living in Canada.
8. if there is a disagreement / misunderstanding about anything, I have final say  ;)
9. Have fun!

ok, I think that should cover it, but I may add/modify the rules if the need arises.

Are we going to put a cap on the number of vehicles and figures this year?

I wasn't planning to, unless the majority decide that would be better...

As a guy who only has one vehicle (not counting speeders and the like) I have no problem with others using a whole bunch.

It could be interesting to consider limits for later contests for sure, especially if after two of them anything that might be potentially unfair comes to light (amount of money to spend on vehicles might be one). I can see where the concern that this just becomes some sort of "my dio is bigger than your dio" contest. But hopefully the judges will not simply be swayed by this. I don't think this was the case last year at all. I think it is merely that the scale of the dio was both large and well done. If someone just set up 25 BAT-ATs and 30 new Scout walkers this year for the Battle of Endor using a green piece of astro turf I'm pretty sure they wouldn't win based solely on the sheer number of vehicles in their display. They'd need to have created a credible forest and most likely bunker and/or landing platform with shuttle and/or Ewok village I would think!

question: would multiple "mini" diorama's be allowed?
for example, i just got a small display shelf/slotted shadow box, where each slot could fit 1 figure, with a base. but, if i were to add backgrounds/details to the inside of each slot (one maybe endor, one hoth) could the display as a whole be considered a diorama? as long as it doesn't pass the 6 picture limit?

fine by me! The real purpose of this contest is to have us share our passion of star wars.

Hi gang, as you are all busily working on your dios, I thought I would reveal one of the prizes for a bit of motivation.

Gentle Giant Chrome Vader statue (lights up to boot!)
