40k Terrain Competition Update - The competition begins!


As you can see from the totaliser we have nearly reached our target. This last month you added £14.10, in particular February 22nd was a good day as I had six clicks on an advert worth 46p a click! So with roughly £57 in the account and it's set to pay out at £60 I'm pretty confident that March will see me go over that threshold. Of course everything beyond the £60 that's generated will go into the pot and I'll be adding my own money to ensure the cost of the Imperial Knight is met and hopefully add a £10 voucher for a second place winner, should we have more than one entry that is.

So that leads us to the competition, I really need your support on this moving forward and to confirm everyone is happy with the rules I've sketched out. Firstly:
Competition judging will begin at the end of March and take place over April with the final decision being made then.
Is this enough time? Is one month sufficient for you to start and finish a project and photograph it ready for April 1st, if not speak now or forever hold your peace. Bearing in mind I have a weeks holiday booked in May so if it rolls over a month to allow more time to enter I may not be able to oversee any unforeseen issues during that period.

Secondly:
I'll be setting up a poll, similar to this test , I know it was possible to break it and you could artificially inflate scores but I'm hoping there will have to be a level of honesty involved.
 Is this OK, or do you think it's open to abuse? In which case there are alternative options:
  1. Poll for first and second prize
  2. I choose first and second prize
  3. Randomly choose first prize, second prize is decided by me
  4. I choose first prize, second prize is random
Or any combination, suggestion you can think of. Lastly, I need to know how folk would like to have their entry recorded? I think emailing me with your picture will be the best bet, potentially adding any other supporting pics if you felt necessary.
