Grand Prize Winner: Congratulations to Eric Rice, you have won the “Where The Wild Things Are” Xbox and a bus shelter-size poster! Your fort was just ridiculous! It had a freakin’ third floor!!!
“I spent the long weekend building my fort out old pallets and other discarded materials. I didn’t use any nails or screws to build the actual fort, it’s lashed together with hundreds of feet of string, and is surprisingly sturdy, even on the third floor. I had an awesome time building it, and hope you guys do some more contests in the future.” – Eric

This is the final batch of forts of our Wild Things’ Forts project with Weloveyouso. We will announce the winner shortly. I have no idea how we’re going to pick! I thoroughly enjoyed going through all the submissions, and I tried to post every single fort that arrived in my inbox! You are all magnificent, thank you for making this such a fun site to work on. Forts Forever!!!
Here’s an email from Steph Grant (sent with this photo):
Cops got called last night… the cops laughed, took pictures with us and we served them pumpkin pie. they said they hadn’t seen anything like this and we explained why we were doing it. It was great… we are going to do this more often, next time… hammocks IN the fort!Thanks!!

We transferred half of my living room into a double storey wonder land. We had the jazz blearing and the warm breeze flowing through our tiny window. we had lollies, an elephant tea pot, juice, lots of bubbles, blankets and pillows. We filled it with our favourite things, it was incredible. This photograph does not do it justice, it was simply the most cozy and happy place I’ve been for so long. I was high on life. If we don’t win, we don’t even mind, because this competition inspired us to have the most fun we’ve had since we actually were 5. Thankyou for the best day! It was heart breaking having to take it down.xx
