yes unfortunately even the competition in Official Rules ignored by the judges!!
It's really strange!!
for example;
*Entrants may enter as many Works as they like however duplicate entries are not allowed.
 
*must use either self-portraits or an original character to illustrate the progression in the three panels as required by the Contest challenge;
*Effective Presentation of the Progression into a Radically Different Person or Thing;

*may not use any watermarks but may contain a signature by the artist provided that the signature is capable of removal at the request of Sponsor;
 
you can see..
and just say,not value For artists effort

Congrats to the winners. They're all nice!

It would've been nice to know about this sooner, or the contest went on longer, 'cause I have a nice shoe-to-crocodile drawing I did in Grade 10 that I'm quite proud of.

Such unneeded hostility, chill out. If you didn't receive a notice then contact the help desk and they'll fix the issue so it won't happen again.

Not the first time this shit happens. Events for "selected" users should remain private or secret. But revealing information or parts of it or the event itself when it ended is pure bullshit.

Again, thats not supposed to be happening. That's the websites server screwing up. If you want this issue resolved then contact the help desk so they can fix it. Getting mad and raging about it won't resolve the issue.

duuuuuude shut the fuck up you sound like a whiny little child
it is a *contest* and as such, someone must *win*
sure, we can pretend that the laws of aesthetics are totally subjective (they aren't), that the amount of effort that goes into a piece is all that really matters (it's not), and that we're all perfectly unique little snowflakes Icon3  (big surprise: we're not)
but say that all of those fantasies were reality and that the prizes were divided equally amongst the entrants, each of us would receive: less than $2, a small chunk of plastic, metal, or glass, broken off of a surface pro, a bus ride for 1 block, and a 5 second billboard takeover

congratulations, you've invented the world's least appealing contest
the fact is that, despite mislead popular misconception, there are rules to art, abstract as they may be, and the objective, inherent value of a piece is indeed measurable
more importantly, this contest involved creating a work for a client (microsoft) and that client has every right to choose the pieces that appeal most to them, or that would best convey their desired image and message
when it comes down to it, what the client wants is all that matters, especially when they're the ones shelling out several grand in exchange for a few drawings

now to be fair, if this contest were judged by deviantArt popularity, we would have a problem, because most dA users are sheltered idiots who only want what they like and have no idea what art is, resulting in an extremely restrictive contest in which the finals would be populated entirely by mediocre pseudo-anime furry bullshit

but that's not the case... the judges were impartial outsiders so no one can try and pull any 'unfair' cards.

tl;dr quit your bitching

^^Hello Kettle... It's me POT! How long has it been?

You've clearly put me in my place. I can also see that you have far more experience in these matters than have I and have perhaps been a judge yourself and know all about the employment ins and outs of illiciting a marketing campaign of this magnitude. You've further offered a very concise explanation of all the facts in this matter and there is no other room for any other view, real or contrived.

I shall of course bow to your unbridled knowledge and obvious understanding, and humbly retreat myself from this or any further posting, as per your request.

I never told you what to do or feel actually so I'm not understanding where on Earth you pulled that from. :-? (Confused) 

Sigh, it's so sad that most people can't discuss subjects or reply without getting hostile or extremely snippy.. No, I disagree!

Read your own comment above. ...Perhaps when you tell someone they're taking something too seriously that they obviously do take seriously...

As for my tone... Imagine you're in a happy place. With rainbows and unicorns... Then, the settling voice of Morgan Freeman comes upon you as from inside, gently offering these words as they shiver out from the warmth of heart felt wishes.   

I do realize that sometimes tone is lost in writing all too brief comments on a message board. My first comment was not an angry diatribe. Just an Exasperation of some of my objections to the industry as I've experienced it. From my own career... I too won such a contest. 20 years ago, true. But it enabled much of my early career and actually payed for my education in film animation. Years later when I was approached to mediate such a contest myself, I found the perimeters for making my conclusions to be vague to say the least. You're right... This may not be that, and my personal experience may be negated by something that I don't know about.

Sometimes, these contests set some up for abject failure, while launching others into the stratosphere. Sample #4 for example is brilliant. Some might find the subject distasteful, over say #1. I don't think that should in any way should negate his chances because an unknown judge got a creepy feeling about scary apples. That has not been made clear in these rules...

I've been in the Spectrum collections. The thing I love about those is that you actually get to see who will be making the calls and tailor your work thusly. Here? Perhaps a Software Exec from Microsoft... Who really knows?

My contest was sponsored by Sonic Restaurants and Apple Computers. There wasn't an artist on the judging. I do sometimes wonder who decided my status should be elevated over another's.

But the other guy is probably right. What would I know...
