    Yes, there are two separate competitions.

    Words of Wisdom are not necessarily funny. If your “Tell-A-Joke” entry is not funny, then it belongs in the “This-ain’t funny” competition, which has yet to be (and never will be) announced. :lol:

    To answer Mark’s question a bit more clearly…

    I think what you want to know, Mark, is that Brickfilms WOW contest is hosted by the owner of Brickfilms.com, Josh/Revmen, while a Brickfest contest like this one is a part of Brickfest, a Lego Convention held yearly, in fact the exact same one Rise of the Empire was made for. 8)

    Yes, I think I got that, but WHY?

    Sad News!

    No entries were received for the BrickFest PDX 2004 Tell-a-Joke Animation Competition as of the deadline. As a result, the competition has been canceled.

    I am disappointed that no one was able to submit an entry. I would like to take this opportunity to evaluate why none of the animators were interested in creating something for this competition. Please read and respond to the questions below to help discern the main reasons for the failure of this competition.

    Were the rules too difficult? Which rule or rules provided the greatest difficulty?

    Was the theme, History of Flight, too challenging? Too Limiting? Too Un-inspiring?

    Was the competition deadline poorly timed?

    Was Septemeber not early enough to announce the competition? Should it have been announced earlier or later?

    Are there too many competitions competiting with one another splitiing the time and talents of the animators?

    Were you too busy between Sept 2003 and Jan 2004 to put something together?

    Is the appeal of having your hard work presented to an audience not enough incentive? Is the promise of an engraved award not enough Award? Is the reward of a LEGO Set not enough award?

    Do you hold some animosity or attitude towards the competition organizer that prevented you from participating?

    I am sincerely interested in any light you can shed on the issue, no matter what color that light might be.

    Sincerely,

    Todd :|

    Maybe what turned a lot of people down was the “suitable for all ages” thing.

    Wow,

    that’s really sad.
    I’ve been too busy lately to even think about contests… But to hear the NO ONE entered anything is sad.
    A brickcon with no animations… that’s like a Chrismas with no Santa.

    Sorry Todd.

    :cry:
