The TWR Competition (2012)

The Thomas Wooden Railway Competition was the first major giveaway in The Thomas Wooden Railway Community history. The hosts were WoodenRailwayReviews, ThomasWoodenRailway, and jlouvier. The contest was intially hosted from August 13, 2012 - September 3, 2012; it was extended to September 13, 2012.

The winners were KilroyCommunications (1st), ScruffyEngine (2nd), EdwardAlba (3rd), 3HenrytheGreenEngine (4th), Calebtrain (5th) and 0903Thomas (6th).


Competition Summary

The main part of the competition was to finish off a scene of Thomas going over a hill with some trucks. The 30 second scene, filmed by WRR, concluded just as Thomas reached the top of the hill. The scene gave allusions to possible foreshadowing (circus coming to town, Oliver pushing tar tanker, trucks surprisingly behaving well, etc.) which the entree could have used in their conclusion as possible ideas. The goal was to make a creative and interesting conclusion in just 1 minute and 30 seconds or less (90 seconds) with the freedom to finish it in anyway possible (sad or funny ending, etc.).

Origins

According to thomasfreak808, WRR proposed the idea in April with sirtophamhatt291. When relationships with Jack were dropped, WRR got Keekre involved, along with jlouvier (who had been doing giveaways in the past.) After thomasfreak808 dropped out as well, WRR, Keekre and jlouvier continued on with the competition into the summer.

Public Response

On August 13th, the competition outline video was uploaded and the first video response was uploaded by Bertiethebusfan14 the following day. Over the next month, over 70 users entered. The last entry was uploaded by TheBluebellEngine on September 12.

After the Competition

After the deadline was extended to September 13, the video that was to announce the winners was delayed by a few days following a judging period. The winners were KilroyCommunications (1st), ScruffyEngine (2nd), EdwardAlba (3rd), 3HenryTheGreenEngine (4th), Calebtrain (5th), and 0903Thomas (6th).

Raffle Giveaway

A raffle giveaway was originally planned for all the users who did not win a prize in the competition. The raffle was originally due to take place in early October before being rescheduled (due to the delays in the winners announcement video) before being cancelled due to the actions of a user threatening to compromise the addresses of the hosts of the competition. The actions of this user also had some prizes held back from being sent (with the acknowledgement of the winners).
