2012 Calendar Contest Winners

Postby MagiusT » Fri Oct 26, 2012 8:31 pm

Well here you go, the winners from this years calender contest. I'm going to list the handle, of the people who won and give a brief description of the picture. I am currently missing the emails of 3 of the entrants. They are as follows: Zhelly and Hythe, Melima, and KoriStarfire. You may also see a few ???'s as well. This is where not all the information was provided to me. Winners will be able to claim their prize at the Live Programming Ops room (Monet - 4th floor RenCen) as early as Friday afternoon of the convention. We had about 50 entries that survived the initial print screening process this year. I want to thank everyone for their wonderful entries. Now in no particular order, the winners.

Zhelly and Hythe were entered by me (Amanda Irwin/Elemental). Do you need their emails to ensure I have permission to submit the image (I didn't send any in for the Snow White image).
My email is incidental.girl@gmail.com if you need to reach me.

Hi, KoriStarfire here, I don't know why the info wasn't there or that the info you do have for my photo is all goofed up especially since someone from the contest sent me an e-mail asking for more info on that group photo so here it is a 2nd time:
Vidia: KoriStarfire
Silvermist: Chinasaur
Tinker Bell: CourtoonXIII
Fawn: Sirene
Terence: Solo-dono

PHOTOGRAPHER: AvatarZara

Sorry for all the troubles this year.
Also, I PMed about my e-mail address cause I don't like posting it on public forums.
Thanks!

Not that I take any credit since Elemental submitted the entry and won, but was my Cosplay name spelled "strawind" in the calendar? That would be a typo. It should be Straywind for the Snow White picture. Just thought I would double check. ^^;

So it looks like the calender wasn't available for pickup OR for sale during Youmacon weekend (due to printing delays, I was told). What can we do to get our free calender, and also to order more for friends, family, etc.?

Is that what happened? :( It would be very kind if Youmacon would mail out calendars. Please consider this option, Youmacon! And maybe open up sales on the internet since you were unable to sell calendars at the con.

The winning cosplays sound great, but the calendars weren't available yet when I went to the Youmacon table in the Dealer's Room. Sure hope they're soon made available some other way, like via the website.

Probably Youmacon has booths at other regional cons that they might sell merch at too... but yeah, it is too bad people at Youmacon couldn't buy the Youmacon calendar. Online sales would be nice... and either way, I'm just happy to know they liked one of my pics enough to choose it. =) Seeing it in print, whenever they can be mailed, is going to be fun.

Is there any word on if the calendars were printed yet? No rush or anything, I was just wondering if their were any updates.

I as disappointed as well that the calendars could not be purchased at last years Con for this calender year. The calender is the one purchase I make a point to seek out. I too hope the staff will put up calendar sales on their website. I would buy one.
