Cool!!! Which entry? When did you find out?

I wonder when there will be an official page with all the winners...
Thanks everyone Really, I love this board and means a lot from you guys.

Fuzzy, I found out Tuesday night (around 7.30pm here in the UK) and had to return some paperwork by Today (thankfully via email). Got officially confirmed as a winner yesterday, and the OK to tell everyone about 0.00023 seconds before I posted :P

I found someone on the Star Trek Modellers Group on Facebook who had also won by the name of Chris Ford, but he deleted his post after I said I wasn't sure if it was OK to share (funnily enough, I got the email saying it was OK to do so right after posting that comment).

As for a complete winners list, I don't know at all. I mean, I'd hazard a guess and say this might filter down to the StarTrek.com site at SOME point, but considering the calendar isn't going to be out for the better part of a year, It could be any time between now and when we have the calendars in our hands.

I'm not sure if I can share the photo (probably not as there should be SOME incentive to buy the thing) so here's a dramatic recreation thats entirely faithful to the winning entry (that I'm sure you can work out which one it was, Fuzzy )

Re: 2016 Ships of the Line Calendar Contest?

Thanks again everyone! Turns out one of my Facebook friends I've been friends with for a little while has ALSO won! What are the odds?! But he found out a couple weeks back, so I don't know WHAT the process has been for selection. Maybe some people were asked but didn't return the paperwork in time or didn't want to sign over the picture? I dunno - but thats at least a 2 week window of winners being "notified".

All that being said, I now know the identity of 3 of the 13 winners.

Do you know if either of the others won with original concepts? I had rather expected it was your Enterprise-F concept that got through. It's really dynamic. I think the one they chose would look really good in print though. It would make a good cover too.

Is the cover the same as the centerfold? My wife always buys me Beatles callendars...

Re: 2016 Ships of the Line Calendar Contest?

Nope - the other two folks used existing designs. I think that IS what the whole point of it was - they just didn't word it right. Should've said "Original composition of an existing design" to get the rull meaning, not an "Original Design using an existing design" which makes no sense.

As for placements and stuff - I don't have a friggin' clue. This won't come out til next year, probably Summer at the earliest so we've got a while to wait and see.

Another thing my Defiant thing had going for it - a lot of empty space to whack an actual calendar in there. Although, I'm kind of glad the people voting didn't realise I'd snuck in some airlocks and phaser strips on the model after reading Doug Drexler on Facebook say he wish they could have added some more starfleet embellishments (like airlocks and phaser strips) to make it more "starfleety". Especially because those additions were placeholders I forgot I'd put on it so they're super lo-res :P

I'll have to keep an eye out for those details! I'm looking forward to hearing the judge's comments. I do hope we get to hear what they had to say about each winner in depth. A showcase website with all the info would be really cool.

Eh, I'd be happy with a single article on StarTrek.com - I think anything more than that is wishful thinking
