Our new contest begins with the autumn equinox. Create a cool, exciting, hilarious or just excellent henge or henges and send photos to us by winter solstice in the northern hemisphere [which is December 21st this year].
Judging will take place over the holidays and we will announce the winners early in January. These can be Stonehenge replicas you made before and never posted online (bear in mind, we spend a lot of time searching and have seen hundreds of replicas online that we’ve never posted to Clonehenge, so don’t assume that if it’s not posted here we haven’t seen it!) or replicas made new especially for the contest. They can also be Stonehenges you made for a school project (and possibly added stupid things to). Don’t forget the peoplehenge concept!
Foodhenges, dioramas with figures, beautiful high quality henges, stupid and silly henges, all are welcome. If we get enough we will divide them into categories. Winners will receive a Clonehenge t-shirt.
Photos may be sent to nancy.wisser @ gmail.com . Remove the spaces.
We look forward to seeing some inspired new henges. Happy henging, gentle readers!

In a sense. That is to say, summer solstice in New Zealand.
Platypus is, as always, optional.
Well, me maybe not really, but we have an awesome build & creative team. (And we already have aliens, which about a year ago were solely responsible for driving the dinosaurs to distinction when they parked their spaceship wrong. It was a pretty neat event to attend! http://www.flickr.com/photos/vintfalken/sets/72157604000631228/ So we kinda have the aliens (eg. http://rezzable.com/blog/foolish-frost/rezzable-ceo-jon-himoff-denies-all-charges-greenies-abuse-his-london-production-f ) and dinosaurs covered. Not sure if we have platypuses, though. )
If the contest starts at the autumn equinox , what’s the deadline for submitting entries? Summer solstice? 😉
Probably–we won’t consider flat art like paintings of henges, but if they are computer generated 3D images, or things like that bedhenge we posted recently, we’ll accept them.
Aliens, spaceships and dinosaurs are STRONGLY encouraged! Also Templar Knights and platypuses, and platypuses dressed as Templar Knights . . . you get the idea.
Another thing we’d like to see is for people to go to their local Stonehenge replica (NOT Stonehenge itself), like at Milton Keynes or Treave or somewhere, as long as they don’t trespass on private property, and, using props and/or costumes, create some kind of tableau or short video sequence.
Anything completely eccentric is of interest. We know you have it in you, Ann!
We’re wondering if ‘virtual’ replicas are allowed to play? And if you want them with or without aliens and spaceships! 😉
(But my first questions is serious.)
