That way we can protest to revive the art contest.
I'd be happy to keep my hat on a little longer. The Awards ain't over until my Air Ride tournament finishes!Let's refuse to take off our party hats.
...but unfortunately, it's far too late for this. It was cancelled because of a lack of submissions, and the submissions there were are already publicly visible here.That way we can protest to revive the art contest.
You must have lost your Mario Awards spirit. But don't worry. When you go to sleep tonight, you will be visited by the ghosts of Mario Awards past, present, and future, and when you wake up you will be desperately begging for a party hat.I never had a party hat on to begin with.
This is incorrect, because I am the person who suggested this theme, and my submission didn't use it.In fact, of the submissions that are published, only one of them used that theme and it's from the one who suggested this theme.
OK, my bad. I just assumed that was the case because it's easy to deduce that only the person who suggested the idea would be able to follow through it. Glad that's not the case!This is incorrect, because I am the person who suggested this theme, and my submission didn't use it.
Your speculation regarding why I chose this theme is also off the mark. I merely did so because I thought it could be interesting, and some art contests thrive on the concept of creatively interpreting a specific scenario. It can provide a nice challenge for artists to try and coax the most out of a piece of work while struggling against a set of limitations. Art from adversity.
I personally like this type of restriction-based challenge, but other people weren't on board with it, which I guess happens. That is not something I could have foreseen ahead of time though, and should there ever be a new contest, I'm obviously not going to make the same mistake again.
