I contacted the help desk and Ayame-Kenoshi told me they are currently giving the prizes so we just have to wait. There's no problem, we don't need to worry anymore. :la:

No :/ I sent it 4 days ago and no reply yet. Wait & see. If I have no reply in few days I think I'm gonna ask the other semi finalists to know if they had news about their prizes or if we are alone with this problem.

I received an email 2 days ago asking me few things to send me the prizes. Check your spam folder, if you don't find anything, the person who sent me the email is the same as the one who asked us the identity card. If you don't have her email adress anymore I can note you to give it to you.

Does anyone have been contacted about the semi finalists prizes ? It's been 9 days since they said who are the 3 winners but I didn't get any messages since this date.

I just sent a note to Ayame-Kenoshi asking her if all semi-finalists were supposed to get an email. I have thoroughly searched my email and spam folders and nothing yet! Hopefully I will get a reply soon so we can get this all cleared up. Kind of weird they didn't just send it through deviant art though. Oh well, I'm just glad to have made it to the semi-finals, but they can sure keep the suspense up!

I'm not sure why everyone didn't get it. I doubt they're sending it to the finalists only, because more than 3 of us got it.

Every semi finalist is supposed to receive the email since they need to be sure everyone is over 18 years old to give the prizes (even if we don't win the final).
Check your spam folder, the email was here for me. If you don't have any, I can note you the email adress where you are supposed to send your ID card with what was written in the mail. Just let me know if you want.

There are at least four people who did receive the emails, so presumably they're sending them out to everyone, but I just don't know. :/ This whole situation is kind of weird! :(

I'm not so sure all semi-finalists are getting an email, as I have not gotten one yet. Could it be that they have already picked their winners?

I searched my spam and thought I didn't get it too, but it was buried under about 15 pages of spam. I had to go to my last page of spam and work backwards to find it.

I would send a note to Ayame-Kenoshi, then, and just double check. Maybe they just typed a wrong letter in your email or something. Typos happen! :)

Maybe you can search by author, the mail is from Viktoria Cornelius, I can send you a note with the email adress if you want to send her an email with your ID card just in case.

Hmmm, that's odd. The subject was "Merrell Semi-Finalist." Maybe they haven't sent them ALL out yet??

juliedillon Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2012
The email subject is "Merrell Semi-Finalist" and the wording of the email sounds a little like a spam message ("Congratulations! You are a semi-finalist! Please send your ID!"), which is why I think so many people are finding theirs in their spam folder. X)

Yes, it looks like all semi-finalists should have gotten an email. Try checking your spam folders. If you have an old email listed on your DA account, they might have sent it there instead.

I was sitting here wondering why I didn't get a verification email; it turns out it was in the junk folder of my old email account! o_o Whoops! I wonder how many other people have their verification messages stuck in their spam folders?
