Setting a precedent of contest augmentation as a result of forum clamor could definitely cast a poor light on the legitimacy of the judging process.
And potentially encourage people not to follow contest rules in the future.

(Perhaps especially if without massive support for a particular set of pieces, having clear reasoning.)

Though an apology consolation to all entrants might be appreciated, if it is with a specific reason. (Lack of clarity in rules, or the like.)

whoops I was referring to the 'additional' 5 they were thinking of adding to the honorable mentions.

I hope the community choice will be announced on monday.

Btw: I think everyone did a great job in their creations. I don't judge any of the designs. But ofcourse some creations are really AMAZING and some are like WOOOOOW.

Since there is no age restriction in this contest, I would't be too harsh on the designs that are less. Because that design could actually be made from a kid of 8 years old and made it with heart and soul. If you tell he or she deserves less to win, I think you are missing the point of Christmas and New year's hapiness.

Riot has given us gamers a chance to do anything else beside gaming. To do something with friends and relatives. So I really appreciate this contest in every way.

Similar to the Hippalus manually doing skin trades for people if the thread gets enough upvotes.

So if there was large community support for giving honorable mention to something like Winter Dominion for its excellent craftsmanship or Yordle Cart for extreme cuteness, that would probably be just fine. (Even if the judges did not view it to be completely matching the contest, for whatever reason. Barring, perhaps, more pressing disqualification cause.)
True, but the chance for someone to be overlooked in a sea of posts is problematic. The ones selected by the community might just be the ones that people have seen the most often, not necessarily their favorites. It's a problem with a lot of contests run on a forum...now if they had a way to do it with WooBox
