I understand you wanting to see some information about how the judging is going. If I were in your position, I would hope for some feedback as well. Personally I just returned from vacation and am trying to tie up the ends with this contest. I have left the cuts in the hands of the judges. Creating a system where entries and voted on and reduced in number until you have winners is a very slow system, particularly when you have as many entries as we have. Therefore it is the responsibility of the judges to make that call and reduce it on their own. They will then submit their final cuts to me, and we will discuss which ones will be declared the winner. So, posting the developments as they come up is somewhat difficult.
However, it is my goal to have the winners announced by the end of this week, and I will work very hard to make sure that happens.
again I apologize for the delays, but we'll get there soon, just stick with me. Thank again for all the great participation! :D

Thank you SO much for participating! I had an amazing time reading this thread and watching everyone submit entries. Unfortunately the judging to longer than expected, but we got there none the less and have some great winners!
To start with, we created 5 addition categories to place extra winners into. We had so much fun judging them all, that we couldn't possibly just leave it at only 3 winners.
The first category was Humor. This was as simple as which image did you just keep coming back to? Which one did the judges just find hilarious.
Second, we chose Creativity. Being a contest based on creativity, some extra prizes for it seemed fitting. This was for those images that took a very imaginative approach.
Third, Simplicity. This category was for the images that got straight to the point. Where you looked at the it and the skill and thought "Well... can't really argue with that."
Fourth was the strangest image category. We wanted to create this category for those images that interpreted the words in a manner that was completely different and we NEVER would have thought of... an idea that totally took us by surprise.
Finally, the best Mangling of the original text. This category was for the images that took the most creative liberty with the actual text of the words that they were illustrating.
So without further adieu I'd love to present our winners!
Each winner in the following categories gets a prize of 10,000 gold, 4 Globs of Ectoplasm, and 1 Obsidian Shard.
Headbutt from Sjeng (Guildwars Guru)
Shell Shock from Arden Kindlecorpse (Guildwars Guru)

Well, gratz everyone. The judges seem to have a personal vendetta against people from GWOnline, but, eh, I'm ranting. Can't say I'm too happy about the 1st prize pick though. Didn't see any humor in it, mainly because I am not in elementary school.

Excellent - the 'winner' isn't even a Dingbat!
Perhaps the 'creators' of this contest should understand what it is they're asking for BEFORE they post the competition to the web.
Sad that so many people simply wasted their time because this was a comp run by high school kids for high school kids.
Guessing that many people are feeling cheated right now.
