The Olympics came and went. And while that was going on in the background, the important news was that Bad Eggers were competing in record numbers to win the third part of our design competition series. Easily the biggest and best yet. We take huge pride from the number of people who have taken the effort to enter and wanted to say thank you to every single one of you. You make what we do totally worthwhile.
As you can imagine, with over 45 pages and more egg designs than I am able to count (I tried but it was taking too long), judging winners has been painfully difficult. I apologise to those who didn't win in advance because you all deserve to, but we've made a decision, chosen our top 3 as well as loads of runners up prizes. Also, remember that no one goes home empty handed as everyone who entered gets a Bronze medal badge (which will be awarded ASAP, but please be patient as we have to do this individually and it will take a while).
The Top 3 eggs will be released immediately. But we are also planning to release a few of the runners up eggs in due course, some of which are shown below (anyone whose egg is used will get a credit in the game and their egg for free)
*Please note a few things before we start:
- While you may or may not agree with our choices, we are very happy with our winners and our decision is final. So please don't start complaining.
- We took into account many factors when choosing not just the quality of art but also the concept and how well we thought they would fit in the game.
- Winners and runners up your prize credits have been added to your account. If you don't think they have been added please get in touch and we can see what the problem is. Regarding Badges, if after 2/3 days if you still haven't received a badge but think you should have please get in touch with your username and tell us which page of the competition thread your entry is on. thanks.
