Mibso Posted: Dec 2nd 2007

Hi everyone,

Has the Cotm (Creation of the Month) award been chosen yet? If so, I can't seem to view the winners. And, I haven't seen any news about it yet?

Please help!

conty Posted: Dec 2nd 2007

mibso, its normally announced aprox a week later, when its announced you will find it on the news page, this month it will probably say 'winners of the month 4' just keep looking out for it, hope that helps:D

Cool and cool avatar conty

Mibso Posted: Dec 2nd 2007

Thanks conty, you are always a big help!

katie Aardman Staff Posted: Dec 3rd 2007

We're just waiting to hear back from Nick on the results - as Conty says, we'll post them in our news section so keep checking back!

muzza Posted: Dec 3rd 2007

Mibso Posted: Dec 7th 2007

Yeah, I had thought something was up with Aardman's Computers or something. But, I still can't wait! I can't help checking back every hour!

cavor Posted: Dec 7th 2007

conty if it feels like christmas! that sure isn't bad, 12 times a year!!

Go W&G Posted: Dec 7th 2007

I asked myself the same question

Mibso Posted: Dec 8th 2007

I really want to win because, I won't get a copy of fleeced and I didn't get to meet Nick Park and get him signing my stuff, but now, if I win I get my 2 dreams!

Good luck everyone! And conty, I've even got my toes crossed!

Good luck again!!

Mibso Posted: Dec 8th 2007

And I've never won anything in my life.

conty Posted: Dec 8th 2007

not quite 12 cavor, im not going to enter next month, i thought i would give it a rest before you all get fed up with my models and my entering too much good luck everyone :D:D

cavor Posted: Dec 8th 2007

Mibso I read an article on how to win a competition and the number (1) rule is to enter, surprisingly people don’t get this far so if you have entered and have tried your hardest you stand as good a chance as anyone.

Good luck and just keep trying.

conty Posted: Dec 8th 2007

i was watching an interveiw last year of a very rich successful man, he said 'the harder i work the luckier i am'..... it struck a chord in me and relised what he said was true
i love sport, so everynight for half an hour for months i went out across the fields and practiced throwing the discus and shot put, it payed off as i was entered at bath university minors competition and won a first in both, then i went back to school and broke a school record that had been held for 25 years!!!! so his saying is true, work hard at something and you will get lucky;):D

animation boy Posted: Dec 8th 2007

i have a story just likes yours conty.

At school for a term a year we do cross- country (roughly 3 miles). Last year i finished 33rd in my year of 120 which i guess was ok. But since june this year i have running over my fields for about 3 mornings a week, and am currently 2nd on the leaderboard.

Definatley agree with the statement

(p.s what was your shot putt distance?)

conty Posted: Dec 8th 2007

my current school record for year 8 (13 years old)is 26.35 meters in discus and the shotput was a 4kg weight and i threw it 9 meters

Mark the shark Posted: Dec 8th 2007

conty, we never get tired of your work. You're fab!

conty Posted: Dec 8th 2007

thanks mark the shark thats really kind:)

animation boy Posted: Dec 8th 2007

very good for your age. I got 10m something, but im in year 9. However my schools a specialist sports school, so to get a record you need to be some obsessive training freak, and must get 12m or something :O

Cant remeber my discuss, wasnt too great.

conty Posted: Dec 8th 2007

im in year 9 now, and im going to train hard again in the spring at both discus and shotput, but there is 1402 pupils in my school, not sure how many in my year but i think its got to be about 250, but our school has just been rated one of the top in the country by ofsted, so i guess im going to have to be obsessive to achieve it again;)

animation boy Posted: Dec 9th 2007

good luck with it. Im in year 9 too :)

Our school only has about 1000 :-(

but i guess it makes it feel smaller.

dan123 Posted: Dec 9th 2007

My school got a really good ofsted report

Mibso Posted: Dec 10th 2007

Nothing happens at my school, and when I made my Totty, I tried my hardest with limited supplies, and everyone hated it, so that's why I don't really want to post any more of them :'(

conty Posted: Dec 10th 2007

dont be silly mibso, your new hutch is way better than your other models, each one you make is getting better, if you give up how are you going to improve?, and not everyone hated them, i didnt, and the not very nice comments that were left were removed so i guess aardman dont think there rubbish either!!!, keep entering but maybe enter only one of your very best each month, and keep modelling i will be looking out for your fab models;):D

The Quans Posted: Dec 10th 2007

Winston Churchill once said, "Never, NEVER, NEVER give up!" How will you know what you're capable of if you do. You could have even better luck submitting the same creation that didn't do as well one month. You never know. I agree with Conty, Mibso don't give up.

jills Posted: Dec 10th 2007

Yes, Mibso, I like a lot of your models. You are definitely getting better at it too, and very quickly, so keep going. We like seeing your Creations. ...and I don't think anyone is tired of Conty's entries. You can have a break if you need it as long as you get back to it ;)

conty Posted: Dec 10th 2007

thanks jill your a star!!!:)

grafgulch Posted: Dec 10th 2007

The suspense is killing me!!! Maybe Nick is too busy working on the next W&G short to judge Novembers COTM????
We can only hope...

jills Posted: Dec 10th 2007

I imagine he's pretty busy, indeed! I had no idea Nick actually chose the winners. Hope he gets to take time off for the holidays.

Go W&G Posted: Dec 11th 2007

what is the actual date the cotm is put on the W&G website?

conty Posted: Dec 11th 2007

im wondering how his birthday went? maybe a bad meal or too much to drink!!! maybe hes poorly:-(

muzza Posted: Dec 11th 2007

I really want the game for crimbo but can't get it anywere in time. So i hope i win. but i won't be to dissapointed because there is always next month, and i know it will be hard to win because there is a load of fab creations compeating

muzza Posted: Dec 11th 2007

conty Posted: Dec 11th 2007

modelmaker i dont look my age either im 6ft 3!!!! its great though playing rugby!!!, no one belives im in year 9, ive just finished a match and im battered and bruised, they all dive on me to try to stop me from running, but we won 17-0:D
muzza im sure santa will put one in your stocking;)

cavor Posted: Dec 11th 2007

Dont grow tooo tall conty wise you will get backache, all that stooping over your animation table!!......joke

We have a young guy at work who is 6ft 7" tall, he has 4 inch blocks to raise his bench up to save his back.

conty Posted: Dec 12th 2007

tell me about it!! though i do stand tall and not stoop as that looks terrible!! i guess its got its advantages i can buy games etc that have 18 cert :O naughty, naughty.

mum and dad are doing our spare room up for me as a little studio so i can leave all my stuff out because its driving mum mad in her kitchen, and dad has already said hes going to put my work bench high to save my back,as hes tall too and he does alot of wood carving, so he would like to use the room too so it will suit us both
unless he makes a mess and then he will be banned!!he he ;)

jills Posted: Dec 12th 2007

I'm starting to think they should pick the November winners at random to kill the suspense! :O;)

Modelmaker93 Posted: Dec 13th 2007
