I had a much easier time picking my 10 choices to be finalists than I did picking just a few to to be the winners. I know I can pick multiple choices now too, but I wanted to keep my votes to only my 3-4 favorites. A few of these are definitely funny, and then a few of these are such high quality they could be printed on a post card today and mailed out as real Christmas cards. Good luck to everyone that's made it this far, and to everyone else thank you for your submissions. there are many more we truly enjoyed.

I'm not gonna lie, I'm a little upset I didn't make it in to the top 20.
I spent several hours on my card, when clearly some of these picks have little then a few minutes in to them or are just other peoples modified artwork.

Did my card just get overlooked? Or is it really not good enough for the voting process?

I can assure you that it did not get overlooked. It just didn't receive enough votes to get through the process. Personally, I liked it and found it clever.

In my opinion there are 3 that look like they didn't take too much time to make compared to the others, but that doesn't make them bad. They're all excellent, and the voting process was extremely difficult for the mods.

I am sorry that you feel disappointed. I very well know that some pictures here demanded a lot less work that others, but the question that was asked to the 22 people who helped us choose were "what are your 10 favorite cards", not "choose the 10 cards that were the hardest/longest to make". And I think it may not have been very obvious to us that you had spent so much time on the card.

Some cards even have official artwork (D and H, as far as I can see), but they were heavily modified to fit the theme of the contest, so I decided to leave them.

There were over 150 submissions. Having the crowd vote on that would be insanely overwhelming.

 

The end result will not be different, unless the winner got all their friends and won because of a popularity contest. Losing a competition is never fun, I myself entered this competition and I believe the choices made were the right ones. There's always tough competition, there's always tough choices to make.

 

Let's not spoil a fun competition and these very deserving entries with controversial arguments.

 

If it's any consolation jbdevs, you were likely on the verge of making it into the finals with the rest of them. Don't get yourself down, its a wonderful design and concept. As you can see by my signature, which I really enjoyed making, I do find the 8-bit look to be quite artistic.

Where is my entry? This is an outrage!

 

I will vote for "C", but I don't like the size, location or font of "merrychristmas"

Thanks to everyone who submitted entries, and congratulations to the finalists. It's so very hard to pick just one. I like them all! T.T

 

That said, my vote goes to 'P'. It is just so... sweetly sentimental. <3

 

@Damien: Am I misunderstanding something in your post? You say 20 entries but there are actually 21 shown in your post. "This Christmas watch your backs druids..." doesn't have a letter. My bad, I didn't know it is part of 'O'.

Post constructively or I'll press some different buttons next time. --Daeleht

Ooh! I got into the top 20. Hurray! (Although I don't approve of the ones that used spliced fanart/official art. A bunch were disqualified for that very reason, were they not?)  Good luck to everyone who made it into the finals!
