Judge's Comments

Best concept, best usage of fact pack and perfect execution.

Inspired by: #voteGIANT

A Big Tobacco document shows they worried that publishing that radioactive Polonium-210 is in cigarette smoke would be like "waking a sleeping giant."

4th should have been 1st.
1st should have been 2nd.
2nd should should 3rd.
And then 3rd should have been 4th.

The fourth one sent the clearest message in my opinion. If I was driving on the freeway and I saw that, then I'd understand the message real fast.

Seems most people agree that the 4th one is the best and I have to say that too. It's by far the best to be honest.
I can only assume that dA wishes to ride the zombie-wave and promote the art that goes with the popular theme at the moment, but I feel that as good as the first three entries are, the fourth one is definitely the best.

Thank god this little propaganda fest is over. It was getting annoying how excessively it was shoved in everyone's faces. Smoking is bad for you, we get it. I'm pretty sure everyone who smokes is aware of the dangers of smoking. You can make them look like ugly monsters or whatever as much as you want, but I seriously doubt this idiotic contest has actually helped anyone.

As soon as I seen the 4th place one last month I knew it would rank high cause it's totally disgusting and really captured how nasty smoking is.  Good job by all these guys.

Congrats to the winners.  Loved all of the entries for this contest had a blast going through some of them.  Betcha  it wasn't easy for the Judges to go through all of them and pick them out although these four really did stand out, especially the 1st place.  Learned a lot from this and had some fun... although this contest is not why I quit it sure did reaffirm the reason why I did and I will stand strong. :D
