Going back to the topic at hand, I am not looking for a win here. I am simply wanting judges/gm feedback on what THEY believe I could have done better, and in which criteria was lacking score.
As previously stated, the assumption was actually spot on. I attempted a hieroglyph style carving for Ancient Lakoria. I do not see why my pumpkin is being targeted here, but it is interesting that there were not more winners, when the winners themselves seem to believe there should have been more winners.
On a more positive note, I did not let my Lakoria pumpkin rot, in fact it is now a half eaten delicious pumpkin pie~
I thoroughly enjoyed seeing all the different pumpkin designs people made! As it was previously mentioned in a comment towards the Succubus Queen, I do not see why camera quality would have an impact toward a judges scoring, having money to buy an expensive high quality camera should not influence how the pumpkin is judged unless the picture is indistinguishable. Picture quality was not one of the three criteria.
I was very impressed with Braha. I was actually surprised that the Succubus Queen was not considered, as it seemed to fit the theme so well.
However, I would like some feedback from the gms/judges who reviewed this competition. I would also like my scoring in each criteria, to possibly help me in future events.
