I can understand the need for a little filtration--who knows how many submissions they received in total? Still, I was expecting a broader selection as well. In all fairness, this and the comic contest are Riot's first attempts at having user-selected winners for a contest. As fair as they are trying to be, I'm sure they will learn from the shortcomings of both attempts.

Wow am I disappointed in this contest ... there are some good entries, but if you're choosing only 48 designs, than pick the best of the 48, don't let Stevie Wonder randomly select 48.

http://www.jinx.com/design_contest_detail.aspx?id=5594 ---- what???

http://www.jinx.com/design_contest_d...d=5930&seed=17 ---- this was a top entry?

http://www.jinx.com/design_contest_d...d=6062&seed=17 ---- I don't even ... apparently PSY works for Jinx?

http://www.jinx.com/design_contest_d...d=5982&seed=17 ---- probably the worst...

What gets me is that that particular user has three qualified entries...

Design-wise, it's hard to read...without the description, I had difficulty seeing that it was Lulu.

Okay, you at least gotta give this one props for humor. XD

Not sure this one communicated the theme well... and skill-wise...it's rudimentary at best...

I would try to contact Riot with my comments on the contest, but it'll probably appear that I'm just whining because my entry didn't make it. I have already voted for my favorite designs, so I'm not trying to be a spoil-sport...I just have my concerns :/

Im guessing there weren't a lot of eligible entries to pick from. Or Riot/Jinx had some very specific ideas in mind. I don't know. I don't mean to criticize anyone's work, however, many entries shown are very similar in concept (magic hats, baking, claw machines) which is fine, I just wish that for only 48 spots there would have been a little more variety represented.

Or I can be grossly optimistic and hope that more are added tomorrow -_-

I agree unless the rest of the community submissions were that bad I am led to believe in random conspiracy that 1 artist gets so much lime light - I would of enjoyed seeing more talented hopefuls make it though.

A good deal of what made it through left me wanting for quality. I would wear 1 or 2 if they become available and they received my vote so good luck.

I would like to see a total list of submitted entries perhaps redacting any inappropriate for younger summoners. It would be a chance for the community to to give the artist a chance to get some feedback from the community. As long as we all have read the code It could be a positive point for those who did not make the cut to get some made up internet points from use who just like to appreciate the artist for doing things the rest of our clumsy hands wont do.
