Over the years, Carpe Noctem has hosted multiple painting & converting competitions known as The Golden Bat Competition.
The competition was always greatly expected and allowed beginners and experts alike to showcase their talent, wit and hard work.
These competitions spawned some of the most twisted, unholy & perverted creations that ever saw the light of the night!

This Index thread showcases all of the winners of the past competitions with thumbnails which you can open for full-size images.
Underneath each respective year's winners showcase are the links to that year's announcement, entry, voting and results threads.
At the end of the thread you can find the awards overview, and last but not least, The Golden Bat Competition Hall of Fame.

Extra Awards and Medals Overview



Golden Bat Master Medal
This medal is granted to anyone who can win first place in more than one category, during the same competition.

The Mods Choice
Judged across all entrants regardless of category or tier. Chosen by CN's Dark Art Mods.
Throughout the year the Dark Art mods get to know many members, and this is where they recognise someone they feel deserves the notice.
Perhaps they have vastly improved, or gone that extra step. Whatever the reason, the mods will grant this award to one they feel deserve it, and state the reason why.

The Spanktastic Award
Judged across all entrants regardless of category or tier. Decided by Disciple of Nagash
The winners for this will be chosen by Disciple of Nagash, who will be looking for the most perverted entry!
It is based on the model itself, not the painting.

Terraformer
Judged across all entrants regardless of category or tier. Voted for by forum members.
This prize will be voted for by the forum members. The criteria is looking for the best based model,
how ingenuitive the member is with the terrain on their model. The model itself is not to be considered when voting.

The WTF?! Award
Judged across all entrants regardless of category or tier. Voted for by forum members.
If you don't know what WTF stands for, we're not telling you! There are some members out there that like to not only think outside the box,
they like to step outside the realm of sanity, and design or paint in a way that makes you go....well WTF?! This prize is for those people. It is not based on skill but on the idea behind the entry.

The Nightmare Award
Judged across all entrants regardless of category or tier. Voted for by forum members.
There are some models out there that just give us the heebie jeebies. They are the ones that make us look away from our monitors and keeps us awake a night, and this award is for them.
This is based on a combination of both the model choice and the possibly the painting. That is not to say a conversion can't win this, as I have seen some unpainted models that gave me the creeps!

Living Doll Award
Judged across all entrants regardless of category or tier. Voted for by forum members.
I know many of you like to go for realism over fantasy, and this award is specially for you.
This is for the model that looks like it is about to stand up and start walking and talking!

The Joker Award
Judged across all entrants regardless of category or tier. Voted for by forum members.
We like a good laugh, me especially. We all remember a funny model, the older ones of us will always remember the Zombie Bat-Pope.
So for those that take the time to have some fun and make us laugh, this is a chance to be recognised. Again it is not based on painting skill.

The Golden Bat Competition Hall of Fame



Here you can see a fun overview off all The Golden Bat winners so far.
The scoring was done in the following way:
1st Place - 3 points
2nd Place - 2 points
3rd Place - 1 point
Extra Award - 1 point

*DISCLAIMER*
This overview isn't meant to be an exact representation of who won the most awards or "who is the best". As seen below, there is no numbers next to usernames.
Over the time, competitions expanded, new categories, new tiers and new awards were added. It would be impossible to take all the variables into account and "score" them in a perfect and just way.
The scoring doesn't take into account the category or the tier of the entries, it simply counts the total number of points based on medals.
The overview is meant to be a fun visual showcase of all the winners and their efforts.
