Also, thanks for the compliment :p

I think you are basically right; but you are missing the point that the majority of the poeple that would vote wouldnt consider buying it anyway. It could work if say you`d let the poeple that bought it one year vote for the next year, or something like that. (off course that would introduce another problem, since only the poeple that like the art will buy it and thus decide on the art in the next year; which will thus remain the same every year).
For now I think I prefer the juries decision over democracy.

Not that it matters cause I would never buy a calender anyways; I forget to turn the pages for months, then have to skip three months (and thus the art) etc etc. Im just not compatible with a linear understanding of time.

When it's 1 drawing of Tom riding a dick, it's funny. If you let the people choose, it's full of that stuff. It loses all sense of humour and turns the calendar in what your average 5-year old can make. A bunch of immature and unfunny pieces of shit combined. You really want that to represent Newgrounds?
...
You know, don't even answer that :p

Oh I am and we all know nothing that will be worth money will ever be fan chosen on this website anyway. It's just a fun idea.
I AM happy with quite a few that made it to the calendar, but there are a few that made me spit my water all over the cliché floor. Just thought I would mention that so that everyone doesn't think I'm a complete pretentious bitch.

Once the winners are announced that rule no longer applies ;P

If I've learned anything from doing these contests it's that complaints and sore losers are inevitable, and that there's absolutely no way in hell to make everyone happy. None! Ever! Doesn't matter who picks the winners!

well, there is a way: letting people customize their own calendars, but that would be ridiculously expensive :P

Hmm ... wondering if I agree or not ...

... I think, at the end of the day, the aim is to produce a decent collection of pictures, since the calendar needs to be sold and hung up on the walls of users who don't care about the rotation of the winners, unless they've followed the calendar contests eagerly.

There are some guys who won this year that I wouldn't want to see their chances hampered by fairness, since they could probably pull off far more epicness in the following year.

Good job to all participants
I'm sorry I didn't do anything - just couldn't get myself to start working.
I'm happy with the winners, and I'm glad I didn't have to judge :P

That should cover it all!

Some beautiful entries this year. I particularly enjoyed Osuka's, AssKiller's and VincentGray's. Truly memorizing.

Great job both artists and organizers.

Newgrounds does ship to England right? :)

Love the cover too I think that was a great choice.

I'm disappointed in myself that I didn't produce art good enough to be selected. Next year however I'll try again and I'll put 10 times more effort into it :D!! Especially now that I know how these contests work!

Madness Day tomorrow!

I didn't get picked, and I worked really hard on my entry, and I'm not gonna pretend like that doesn't suck, but who gives a shit I'm still going to buy the calendar because its bad ass and there's a ton of really great art in it.

Cheer up fellas!

So...what can I say to sound sincere enough to congratulate the winners...when deep down I am crushed...I truly thought at least 3 of the 6 I entered had a shot...We were told to enter something different to represent more of the games less of the regular icons...and most of the calendar are illustrations of just the opposite suggestion given to us...Tankman and Hominid are in more than 2...It is nice that artists such as Jouste won with a mash up of most of New Grounds icons and the games that Tom Fulp suggested, but for outsiders buying the calendar, they aren't going to have a freaking clue as to most of the characters on it...whereas putting a picture of Miami Shark for example (even with the text on the picture) lets others know what they are looking at without being so intrusive. And Hot Ninja Moon Moon..I thought was creative and outside of the box, bringing that game forward in its classic black and white, but less pixel to make people go Wow..what is that....Again, I am just using them as examples because I really did work hard on them...but maybe another time. Congratulations Winners...as I have just purchased 2009s calendar to keep as a collectors item...I will do the same when I save up for 2010's Awesome Work All...thanks for allowing me to rant. Can you really blame me. Peace, Emuzin!

emuzin, i have to say this cause i feel it has to be said by someone, youve got the enthusiasm thats for sure, but instead of rushing out 6 or 7 pieces in the timespan of a few weeks, why dont you spend those 2 weeks on 1 or 2 pieces and make them extremely good, instead of loads of pieces that dont have your full effort in
