Congratulations to the Dino Art Contest winner Trent Taft and his submission "Blue Raptor"

An art contest 65 million years in the making has finally come to an end. Choosing a favorite dinosaur was nearly impossible with so much incredible art to choose from, ranging from digital illustrations to full-size dino costumes. But in the end, the Grand Prize goes to...

Trent Taft for his BLUE RAPTOR sculpture!

Trent, you brought together sculpting, mold making, casting and painting to create an original twist on everyone's favorite pack-hunting dinosaur.

If JURASSIC PARK's founder John Hammond were here to see it, he would have "spared no expense" to create a real one!

Thanks again to all of you who participated. Long live dinosaurs!
