Some Amazing work, right? I really had loads of fun (As well as loads of frustration) during this competition, and I have been truly inspired by all of the phenomenal creations that have come out of it! Big thanks to the judges for all of their hard work and very specific comments(I really appreciate it)!

So there you have it folks; my write up on this years Mocathalon! As always, thanks for looking, and I’d love to hear which creations were your favorites! Bye!

  1. Tough judges! P.S. I gave you 25/25 on most of them; I took off some points on Venice for the wrong historical period.

    1. Hello! Yes, the judges certainly didn’t go easy, but that just motivated me to work even harder!
      Though it is true that Venice is not the most ancient of civilizations, it was part of the Roman Empire for some time, so I took the chance.

      Thank you so much for commenting!
