Such as? I feel like I missed something here. Other than the type-o they had about submission deadlines (which I think they handled fine), I don't know what else has changed since the contest started.

Vandarus: stops looking because this is just depressing now..
Xin It To Win It: …the deadline has been extended…
Vandarus: A second chance!!!

So… my second, Yordle-Free entry (technically my first idea which I scrapped mid-way in favor of fun-loving Yordles…), snuck in five minutes before midnight (whew!). Looking at everyone's great entries though, I actually feel bad for the judges who can only pick five out of all these submissions. Good luck to all who entered the contest and Happy New Year all.

Aw. I'm honoured that you mentioned mine! I really like the way you did your cookies, too. Did you use icing paint pens?

hey nikasaur, I 'm worried about the last entry i do, cause of deadline y cannot explain well my entry and I put a wrong information about the user name of a mate.

I'm from EUW my summoner's name is "Temy" and the wrong data is the user's name of the summoner Luseffyth, I put Luseffyt without h and this dude has the same summoners and users name. sorry about the confusion and my bad english U_U

Two friends and I worked really hard to make Ezreal's Edifying Edible Edifice: The Institute of (Hearth's) War(ming). Gingerbread from scratch ftw.
The building is a good 24"x20.5"x12", haven't measured the stairs.

Yes! Someone found a way to incorporate ribbon candy into their submission. That stuff is the best =)

Nice work on the submission too btw. Looks like it took up a good chunk of your holidays to make that big boy.

I wouldn't worry too much about something like that to be honest. If you properly submitted your 2 photos at the right 1280x720 size and made sure to write at least 1 name in icing for your submission, you should be fine if you misspelled someone's name somewhere along the way. I assume the primary reason they wanted the name(s) in icing was to prevent people from making an entry in advance (just like they required you to have something edible from the game for the Noxus Noms contest). And as long as you got your name right when you used the submission form, they'll know a correct contact.

If you happen to be one of the winners, Riot will contact you and you'll have to take care of filling out a form, etc. If that happens, you should be able to correct the name mistake so that person gets proper credit and can receive some of the rewards. Just like the last contest where they said you were allowed to send a part of your RP prize to other people if you won, I imagine the same would apply here in terms of dividing up the skins/gear that you win. Luseffyth (or any other friend you might want to surprise with a skin, etc.) should be fine then once you talk with a Rioter.

Hope that helps. (I may be wrong but again, I wouldn't worry too much about it. It shouldn't affect your chances of winning and would be correctable should you be chosen as one of the winners.)
