To be honest, I wanted to join the competition but I really had no idea what to do for it. I wasn't completely sure what was expected of entries.

The contest was without a doubt a great idea. I'd love to see more short term, themed maps to celebrate whatever it is that's going on.

Chinese New Year version of Greater China?
Nascar redesign of Circus Maximus?
October 3 marks the 20th Anniversary of the Reunification of Germany, Berlin 1961?
June 6th is D-Day...
St. Patricks day is coming up, we could retool Ireland in addition to having a St. paddy's day map.
Too bad we don't have a Mexico map yet, Cinco De Mayo.

I'm sure there's other things to make these short themed maps for and I hope it continues!

Nice job on quickly taking a suggestion, getting approval, setting up the contest, getting 2 entries so we had a choice, and then finishing it off. It was definitely rushed as there was so little time, and it would have been nice to see additional alternatives, even possible a multi-round elimination with a day or two in between the rounds to let the contestants update and polish their work.


Without shadow of a doubt, this contest was very rushed - with more time there may have been more thought put into entries, and more time to polish the finished image(s).

Now, did somebody say something about medals? :-$
