We love StoriesBig Finish produce great full-cast audio drama for CD and download, featuring many popular television fantasy series.
The winner of Big Finish's Legacy of Time fan art competition has (finally!) been announced.
Congratulations to Colin Smith, whose entry was selected by a judging panel including creative director of Big Finish Productions, Nicholas Briggs, plus head of design at the company, Mark Plastow, and Doctor Who artist extraordinaire, Ben Morris. Colin's achievement was announced on this week's Big Finish podcast.
The judges were impressed by all the entries received to this competition. The high standard set by fan artists was such that more than one round of judging had to be completed before a winner could be decided. It was a very difficult choice but, ultimately, Colin's artwork was selected because of its ability to sum up the excitement and adventure of 20 years of Doctor Who audio at Big Finish.
Colin's prize is a year's supply of Big Finish audio dramas. He told us: "Oh my goodness I won! I didn't think I would with so many fantastic entries. I make lots of Big Finish fan covers and the process for me is very fluid, I find things don't always work if I stay rigidly with my initial idea. Though, In this case, the end product was almost how I envisioned it at the start. I just want to end by saying a massive thank you to Big Finish and the judges."
Steve Berry, head of marketing and publicity at Big Finish added: "We're so pleased for Colin, and it's great that he has been a fan of Big Finish for such a long time. We hope he enjoys listening to his prizes over the next twelve months. I can only apologise to all the other entrants for the length of time it has taken us to announce a winner for this competition but we wanted to make sure the result was decided 100% fairly."
