    Arrow The Newborn Contest Public Poll is up!

    Hey everyone, our apologies for the delay with putting up the poll. Due to some technical issues and having to sift through well over 400 (!) images it took a little longer than planned. We'll make sure this will go smoother next time At long last though, the public polls are now up!

    Since there's only a limited amount of space in making polls on the boards, we had to break it up in heats. There are a total of 8 heats, you can vote in each of them. Out of each heat we'll pick a few of the top entries with the most votes and put those into one final poll to determine the winner of the publics' choice. Note that every poll is multivote, so you can vote on as many entries as you want. Please do not vote for yourself as it won't count towards your end result.

    ---------------------------------------------

    Check out all the heats here (please note, they are really image-heavy):

    Newborn Public Poll - HEAT ONE

    Newborn Public Poll - HEAT TWO

    Newborn Public Poll - HEAT THREE

    Newborn Public Poll - HEAT FOUR

    Newborn Public Poll - HEAT FIVE

    Newborn Public Poll - HEAT SIX

    Newborn Public Poll - HEAT SEVEN

    Newborn Public Poll - HEAT EIGHT

    ---------------------------------------------

    Deadline for voting for the first round is: 9 October 2009

    ---------------------------------------------

    We took the liberty of taking out a number of entries for various reasons. If you don't see your entry in here it can be because of the following reasons:

    1. Quality: While we have not been very strict on this, considering everyone had well over a month to finish something for a high-profile contest like this we expect a certain level of quality and finish to your entry.

    2. Relevance: Though the boundaries are rather fuzzy with such an open topic as 'Newborn', images that were either random portfolio pieces or old work with no connection to Newborn at all have been cut.

    3. No e-mail: If you only submitted your final to the finals thread, and not by email, there may be a chance we missed you. We tried our best to make sure we caught these as well, but please remember to submit correctly next time!

    If you have any real burning questions regarding this, send a PM to either Daestwen or Yoitisi.

    ---------------------------------------------

    All the winners will be announced once the polls are over, both the judges choice and the publics choice. So, a little more patience everyone

    ---------------------------------------------

    There are actually a few pictures that are double posted. Some of them have more votes than others. What will happen to these posts; will they be left as is, or will the one with the most votes be left alone while the other is deleted?

    Thanks for the heads up on the double posts and missing images. With such a crazy amount of images to process this was bound to happen, even though we tried our best to weed these mistakes out before putting them up. It should all be fixed now

    Since editing already open polls is really fiddly, I took out one of each double image and transferred the votes that weren't doubled up to the remaining image. In case of cognition.sb's missing image, we'll keep an eye on it. It's going to miss a few votes for the end result no doubt, but since there'll be a final poll for the most popular images this shouldn't be a problem in the end.

    ---------------------------------------

    By the way, these polls wouldn't have happened at all without the help and work of Daestwen, so please give her a huge thanks too

    ---------------------------------------

    Hi , i'm a little disapointed with the contest because i don't see none of my drawings here in the polls. Does anyone is in the same situation (missing his drawings up in the polls)? Anyway, good luck to all ...

    Thanks for the response so far, we'll try and go over the repeats somewhere this evening. Editing polls is somewhat scary once they've been opened

    bungyx: As said in the original post up there, some images were cut from the poll.

    This is nothing personal, see it as a indication that your work isn't up to par yet and needs more work and study. Due to the enormous amount of entries we did not include every single image in the poll.

    Amazing works, all!

    I think I'll pass on actual voting, as the art is just so tiny, and I'm unable to see each one in all its glory

    You mean your bandwidth doesn't allow you to download the bigger images? The full versions should be at the bottom of the polls.

    Yeah, it's mostly just in Chicago and Afghanistan that you get to vote over and over again.

    hasunkhan I'm pretty sure your image is in there actually, I just don't know in which heat. Please check them out again, and if you really can't find it send me a PM please.

    I've noticed that not all the images load at the same rate and so it is possible to scroll through what appears to be all the images on a page and then navigate away, only to find new images seem to be in the page when you come back. (just because they hadn't all fully loaded yet by the time you became impatient and left.) Be sure not to navigate away until you have seen that little "done" in the lower left.
