It's rather late and I worked a really long shift. However, just for you ponypeople...I stayed up and posted the Midsummer Contest People's Choice Finalists!
See the top 10 designs and cast your vote!

I promise to answer e-mail and work on projects this weekend...it's been a VERY long week! ^_^

The voting WAS really hard this year! And my two favorites are in the top ten, so the decision is still very difficult. Can't wait for the results!

Don't worry...there are still other prizes. The top 10 were just the most popular designs out there. ^_^

There, there.
*pats missy_bug on the shoulder*
Lots of amazing designs were submitted and the competition was fierce. The top 10 just happened to be the ones the voters liked the best. There are still other awards that aren't dependent on that. ^_^

Re: 10 finalists

Awwww. I'm sure your designs were great. A lot of people had a tough time choosing just one pony to vote for! ^_^

I'm pretty much in chock here, as one of my entries are in the top ten. :D
Sad thing is... As happy as I am about that, I am even more unhappy that the one I voted for didn't make it.
Oh, she would have been such a lovely custom. *sighs*
Hope the designer makes her "real". If anyone makes customs of their entries, would you be willing to link to pictures of them? :)

Re: is this okay?

It's okay to chat about the contest in general terms. Just don't say anything that might change the outcome of the voting. ^_^

LOL, you can chat about anything after Saturday! ^_~

Wow, that must have been a pleasant surprise! ^_^

Even though the design that you voted for didn't make the top 10, it could still win one of the other prizes. It's not over until the winners are announced!

Sure, I could post links to pics after the contest ends. ^_^ It's always interesting to see how a design evolves into a real-life custom pony.

Wow!!!

Is one thing that i have to say about the custom designs this year. Non of mine made the top ten but hey i just have something to work on for next years. ;)

I have to say though, the Top ten this year are amazing, it was hard to choose, since there were so many wonderful customs. All of the customs personify a certain wildness about them!!

Great Work EVERYONE!!!

At first, I was skeptical about the theme. However, the designers ~really~ did a fantastic job interpreting it. I was utterly amazed by the quality and diversity of the designs! ^_^

Re: prizes?

Likely during the first week of July. Just depends on how many July 4th parties I have to attend. ;)

Re: thumbnail missing

I fixed the thumbnail, but you might need to reload the page to see it. I doubt it would affect the voting...the linked file still works fine.
