Christmas 2012 Competition Winners
We've got the votes in and tallied them up. This was a very difficult vote to call, but we're finally there!
Our thanks to our guest judges - Sibsy is senior storyboard artist for the show and Sethisto is the curator of Equestria Daily - we've been glad to have their input for this competition! The 'third judge' in this competition was a hideous abomination cobbled together from the minds of our site staff.
You can view all of the entries to the competition here
The grand prize winner is: Atryl with this incredible entry featuring Derpy, Trixie, Cadance and Spitfire!
Atryl will be receiving a 3D printed Derpy Hooves model created by the talented Clawyed-Nyasu for his prize, along with 8 weeks of free banner space on the site.
The competition was very tight near the top and so second place is a tie, won by both Muffinshire and Raikoh - congratulations to them both!
Muffinshire sent in this adorable heart-warming comic featuring Derpy and Dinky:
Raikoh meanwhile sent us this brilliant picture featuring Derpy, Spitfire, Trixie, and Cadance.
Both artists will be receiving a t-shirt of their choice from WeLoveFine's pony section, along with 4 weeks of free banner space on the site!
We really weren't kidding - this competition was immensely hard to judge. This means that Siden and Raedrob have jointly won third.
Siden submitted this fantastic picture of Derpy, Twilight, and Spike.
Raedrob sent in a wintry but heartwarming picture of our favourite pegasus.
Both artists will again be receiving a t-shirt of their choice and 4 weeks of free banner space on the site.
Thank you to everyone who entered!
We had a whole host of entries submitted for the competition and you can view them all here - there's so many great entries, so we do recommend having a look!
All the judges had a lot of fun looking at everyone's work and we're really glad to have run this competition - we're looking forward to perhaps running some more in future!
This has been a great end to our first year at Derpibooru, and the best way we could have imagined a new year starting. We're looking forward to seeing even more talent making an appearance with more incredible art in the coming year.
Happy new year, everypony!
