At http://www.tc-rtc.co.uk/index/index.html both the Challenges 1 and 2 
have been closed for upload:

The Challenge 1 topic *Dome of Many-Coloured Glass, by Amy Lowell 
(1874-1925)*;
The Challenge 2 topic *Light in Darkness / Darkness in Light*.

You are now kindly invited to vote for the uploaded images. You can do 
this till the 31st of the current month. Please do not forget to vote 
for *all* the images if you want your votes to be valid! Remember: this 
is absolutely mandatory.

------ TAKE NOTE! --------
In January 2007, the *Tina Chep Render Time Challenge* was launched for 
the first time by Steve Paget. Ten years of great and often outstanding 
images by talented artists have followed. We want to celebrate this 
special anniversary with a special price for the best image of this 
Challenge: the silver-and-gold key holder once made by Steve Paget 
himself! Thomas de Groot who was its first owner, will pass it on to the 
new winner.

Therefore, the next topic for Challenge 1 will be *Anniversary*. It will 
run from January 1st, 2017 till April 30th, 2017. Voting for this topic 
will start April 17th, 2017. Of course, we want you to give us an 
unexpected and challenging view on the topic.

The next topic for Challenge 2 will be announced asap.

Due to the discrepancy in the number of voters, we decided to create the
Challenge 1
banner according to the following order:

1. Art nouveau (lequenne)
2. Glass Dome (BaldEagle)
2. Meditation (etcetcetc)

The banner is available through the "Photos" tab of the "Dome of Many-Coloured
Glass" group
of the "Tina Chep" profile.

There is no button for automatic download, you have to click on the picture and
use "Save Image As..." of the browser context menu.

Make sure you don't download a coarse version. Normally the full version should
be
displayed in a slideshow screen mode on black background. You can save it from
there
because it is the only version which has the exact resolution of 996x195 pixels.

All other versions are coarser to make sure that the overall bandwidth is low.

NOTE: you can exit the full screen mode by clicking anywhere outside the black
background ("Esc" doesn't work).

At http://www.tc-rtc.co.uk/index/index.html final voting results are as 
follows:

The results for the September/December 2016 Challenge 1 Dome of 
Many-Coloured Glass, by Amy Lowell (1874-1925)* are:

1	Art nouveau	lequenne	140/80
2	Xmas dome	lequenne	131/71
3	Soap Bar	DrNo		130/70
4	Nations	DrNo		121/61
5	Glass Dome	BaldEagle	98/98
5	Meditation	etcetcetc	98/98

Due to the fact that two participants did not vote, the bonus points 
were not attributed to their images, which changed the final results.


The results for the November/December 2016  Challenge 2 topic *Light in 
Darkness / Darkness in Light* are:

1	A Boy and his Dog		TenMoons	178/118
2	Will you enter			lequenne	165/105
3	Amor Vincit Mortem		DrNo		153/93

Congratulations to all the winners of these two challenges. The next 
challenges are announced on the web page.

Please DO NOT (repeat: do not) publish any interim results before they 
are published officially by me or by Stephen. They are likely to be wrong.

Yes sorry about that, but since Yves (lequenne) already had an entry
(the winner) in the top 3, and since I personally don't care, I thought
it was fine to put it the way I proposed.

But the rules are the rules, and for the standings to be fair, all entrants
MUST vote. Please send a reminder for the people who didn't vote for
them not to forget next time.

My apologies for the confusion.


Normand
