Entries for Dinosaur Toy Forum Contest Have to be in by Sept. 27th 2014
Everything Dinosaur is proud to sponsor this year’s Dinosaur Toy Forum diorama competition. Not long to go now before the closing date for this prestigious contest (Saturday, September 27th), so model makers and landscape designers are going to have to get a move on if they want to claim the accolade of creating the best (as voted for by forum members), prehistoric diorama of the year.

The rules and regulations for the 2014 contest are as follows:
-Entry is free.
-All members of The Dinosaur Toy Forum, including staff, are invited to participate. Non-members wishing to participate are invited to register to the forum, this is free.
-Dioramas have to feature prehistoric creatures: from Trilobites to Triceratops, it doesn’t matter, so long as it is prehistoric.
-The deadline for entries is Saturday 27th September 2014. (Entries received after 00.00 hours GMT September 27th will be invalid.)
-One diorama per member. Once submitted it cannot be exchanged for an alternative entry.
-Entries must be accompanied by a creative title.
-Dioramas have to be new (never published on the web before) and you must have produced the diorama yourself. Stealing somebody else’s diorama will result in disqualification.
-Photoshop is allowed, but the original photograph(s) must be your own.
-Winners will be selected by a poll open to all Dinosaur Toy Forum members (there will be no professional judges), that will take place shortly after the closing date. There will be three winners in first, second and third place respectively (no joint positions), as selected by the poll. In the event of a tie for any position, a tie-break poll will be created. There will also be three non-prize winning honourable mentions.
As well as the honour of the title, there are a range of prehistoric animal models up for grabs supplied by ourselves and we look forward to viewing all the entries.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur explained:
“The model making community is very well informed about ancient life. Model makers in our experience, are also very imaginative and we have had the pleasure of viewing dioramas that have been submitted as competition entries in previous years. We are all really looking forward to seeing this year’s entries.”
The very best of luck to all of this year’s entrants, as fans of dinosaur toys and models ourselves we are really excited to be involved.
