    Don't think I will bother entering this for several reasons.

    1. The travel costs involved to get to the States in the first place,
    2. "Judging will be by panel selected by CoolMiniOrNot and Adepticon, which shall account for 50% of the score. 50% of the score shall be determined by popular vote on CoolMiniOrNot.com between April 1st and April 3rd."
    3. There's a few other rules and whatever amongst it that I see are going to get abused one way or another as well.
    Awards:
    Calendar Award

    Agreed.

    Id like to add no.4 - I've got no chance of winning!

    I'd definitely have no chance but its an extraordinary amount of money for a painting comp, so should make for some nice minis.

    6 inch base limit on a single 54mm scale model!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    What are they expecting people to put on that a whole battlefield?

    Oh and Diorama is limited to an 8 inch base size...

    For $10k, a house you can also live in.

    Wow! It will be interesting to see, no doubt. And you think the rampant vote padding/sniping was bad when people were trying to get a meaningless number above 9.0...
    I hope the pictures are posted by the judging staff only and done so anonymously to minimize name recognition. 10k is an impressive prize, though.

    This prize is too much. WAY to easy to get abused. And with such a subjective thing like painting it's too tough I think.
