Stick-Maker of the Year l 2016 ♚ *See You Next Year*

Year 1 I Year 2 I Year 3

The first competition wasn't a complete disaster, SO HERE WE ARE AGAIN!! WELCOME TO S.M.O.T.Y.(won't spell it out, lazy) 2016!!!! Hopefully we'll get to see more stick-makers join this time around and see a wider variety of creations. I'm also hoping we could make it to the final round this time too, I don't want to win by default again. You guys really surprised me last year with some of the stuff I saw, just a bummer we couldn't put a cap on it. It's alright though, new year, new attitude n' shit. So let's get started, huh?

This is how it's happening:

Imageound 1
Basically just weaving out who will make it to the second round. There will be a deadline for you to submit your stick and then another week until the next deadline for the judges to pick the top 15 who will move on. Everyone who's participating in the competition will have a chance to make it to the second round.

Note: If only 15 join then the top 10, if only 10 then top 5, etc.

Imageound 2
The remaining 15 will have to make another stick, by the deadline, to be able to qualify for the top two.

Imageound 3
(This is where it get's interesting (wink (scared (mm (cheesygrin (scool )

The remaining two will have to duke it out with their stick-making abilities and try to make something more impressive then the other. There will be no deadline for the last round, voting starts when both sticks are in. Even though there's no deadline, I do ask that if you manage to make it to the last round, you finish your stick in a timely manner, as courtesy to the judges and people awaiting to know the winner.

You will be judged based on creativity, overall look (this includes holes), and functionality.

*Please note that if you did volunteer to be a judge you may not participate in the competition*

Ray extended me the kindness of letting me use the staff area to judge last year and he's letting me do the same this year. Due to this, all staff members will be considered for judges before I select any regular members. If only 1 or 2 spots are left after selecting from every staff member, THEN I'll consider regular members as judges. Ray agreed to give temporary staff access to any regular member I select as a judge. Responsibility of communication between the three of you will be left entirely to you, but with the new rule this should be easy. You do need to actively communicate in order to judge effectively. Please post the name of the people who are proceeding to the next round, every round.

I'd be down to be a judge since I have no desire to actually make anything.

I'm keen to make stuff for this. Are people allowed to make entries and also judge? Not saying I want to be one, but you weren't clear on this.

I can tell it took you a lot of time making this thread, so thanks for making it look so awesome.
