Hallowe'en Contest Update

Hey guys!
We've had some great entries as you can see, and tomorrow is the last day to enter. So if you haven't already done so, send us your costume and pumpkin pictures. I'll post the remainders on Saturday.
There have been a few questions popping up in emails and in posts so I thought i'd address them.
  • Nope, there's no voting from the fans. Todd and I are looking at the pics and selecting the winners based on effort, originality and overall execution of the costumes and pumpkins.
  • Nope, there are not multiple categories for winners. We don't exactly have a budget for this thing, we're just doing it for kicks. We have to go out and buy copies of the DVD somewhere to send as the prizes (we actually don't have copies ourselves)
  • Hallowe'en has an apostrophe in it because the word is an abbreviation of the term All-Hallows-Even, which is the night before All Hallows Day. Look it up ;)
  • People keep stating that the blog will be ending when season 2 is done. I don't know why. We don't have any intention of closing the blog that soon. Both Todd and I have been working on season 3 in some capacity and still have access to the artwork. We hope to continue putting work up.
  • I don't have any control over the broadcasters. So I don't know why CN has gotten further ahead than Teletoon in air dates. I also don't know when either network plans to air season 3. But! From all of your complaints it's clear that I can't stop posting stills or artwork from season 2. I will start posting again soon -- being careful not to put anything up that is a true spoiler.
  • YES i did see that CAKE's website posted something that might look like it gave away the identity of the final 2. But that info is constantly changing -- if you've noticed -- and those marketing folks have clever ways of getting people talking about their shows. ;)
  • The season 3 voice actors for Sierra and Alejandro are ..... one minute I have it somewhere .... nope that's my parking receipt .... um... hang on ... aha! Sierra is voiced by Annick Obonsawin, and Alejandro is Marco Grazzini. At least that's what I'm told.

I hope that answers some questions. Again, we're impressed with all of the costumes and pumpkin pics we've received so far. We're looking forward to revealing the winners on Monday. I'll get back to regular posting shortly. There will be another bit of a break in posting when we go to Burbank for the CTN-Expo but after that expect to see some more design and screen grabs.

I love Annick Obonsawin! She voiced Inez from Cyberchase. I used to love that show! Sierra is going to be great! She is hilarious!!!! Great job on all of the costumes and pumpkins!!!

I'm bothered that we Americans get the show before Canada. I was gonna dress as Ezekiel but my mom said she wouldn't let me send y'all my pic so I ended up being a pirate!

I am so glad Owen is back on TDA. I think its obvious he won't be there long, but at least he's back. And Courtney's going DOWN!!!

Well, I already imagined we couldn't vote, so I'm OK with it... But aw, I was expecting multiple categories for winners this year: There are so many great costumes... It'd have been great if my three favourites (CITPrincess, MadiYasha and the guy dressed as Harold) were all winners in their respective character's category. Can we at least know not only the first but the second and third place too in the costumes and pumpkins, please?

When I read the stuff on CAKE's page, I was disappointed, but now your comments on that confused me. But oh well, that doesn't say who will win, so I'm still going to watch.

Wait, Hold on. You're in production of Season 3, but you're not directing it. I'm confused. Does that Mean Todd never left TDA on Febuary? Or are you and Todd in a new position of The Total Drama Crew?

I may have already asked you, but will Courtney ever show nice? Why or why not?
