The winner of round 4 will be crowned king or queen of Pxleyes! This final round's winner will be awarded with $100!

DML: It looks very funny!! ( 5 years and 2527 days ago )
robvdn: To clarify: the top 16 members will go to the round 2. So even if your highest placed entry ends 25th in this contest you still have a chance to be in the top 16 members.
The names of members allowed to enter in the next round will be posted underneath the description next week. ( 5 years and 2527 days ago )
blur: • Looks delicious... I'm in. It's better this way then themed with photography contest imho. • ( 5 years and 2527 days ago )
hereisanoop: If I can save two hours this week I am in... ( 5 years and 2527 days ago )
tnaylor21286: This sounds fun, was this inspired by march madness? Or is that just coincidental? ( 5 years and 2526 days ago )
minnie: "To clarify: the top 16 members will go to the round 2. So even if your highest placed entry ends 25th in this contest you still have a chance to be in the top 16 members." Sorry, I don't get it. Could you explain it again please? ( 5 years and 2525 days ago )
Lelaina: Minnie, because everyone can submit 3 entries, it can be that several people have more than one entry in the "top 16". They can only get one place in the next round of course, so in this example, someone who has the 25th place can still go through. It's about the top 16 members, not the top 16 entries. I hope that's understandable ( 5 years and 2525 days ago )
minnie: Thanks Lelaina, now I understand!! ( 5 years and 2525 days ago )
robvdn: @tnaylor21286: actually it was a very old suggestion of mine: http://www.pxleyes.com/contest-suggestion/1697/Tournament.html ( 5 years and 2521 days ago )

• Ecclesiastes 3 : 1 •
• A Time for Everything •

• There is a time for everything,and a season for every activity under the heavens:

The Surrealism Project was inspired by the Ecclesiastes from the Bible, the Tree of Life is like a Tree of Wisdom and Knowledge. It represents God's power over the kingdoms of humans (city under the gear that look like a chunk of mountains) and no man nor technologies (gears) can stand against the nature's keepers; against the time itself.
