What a great Halloween Purrade we had yesterday!
The judges have weighed in with their picks for finalists. The judging criteria included:
- Photographic quality
- Degree of Difficulty
- LOL factor
We also factored in the comments left on the Purrade post yesterday.
In selecting the finalists, only one entry from each family is eligible for the random drawing of a grand prize winner. So there will be 8 finalists vying for the Grand Prize, to be announced tomorrow.
We will also be awarding a few additional purrizes, including 25 zealies to be awarded as a consolation prize in a random drawing from all entries that didn’t make the finals.
Here are the finalists:
Mercy and the Gang as the Wizard of Oz cast
This amazing effort had the judges arguing over which one of these Wizard of Oz characters deserved to make it to the finals. They all deserve it, but per the rules, they’ll only get one entry in the random drawing for the grand prize winner.
Louis LeBeau as King Louis XIV
Hazel Lucy as Candy Corn
The following three entries — Lucky, Eve and Charlie — are from the same family. They all deserve recognition as finalists, but they only get one entry in the random drawing for the finalists.
Chewy as Eve in the Garden of Eden
Note from one judge: her fig leaves should have been placed a little lower.
Charlie as Operation Kitty
Lucky the Skunk
Mo the Fly Fishing Champ
Samoa as the Queen of Diamonds
Taz as God of the Sea, Neptune
Charlie the Prisoner
