What a blazing contest! Thanks everyone!! The entries are superb, the commenting and community building are stellar...what more could we ask for??
I have a final group to score and judge, so I'm going to commit to posting results some time on Wednesday. If I hit a snag and need a little more time, I'll let you know.
For those new to my contests, I will announce the placements of First through Fifth and the Readers' Choice Award winner. I will also name a number of honorable mentions. Finally, I will list this contest's inductees into the Forties Club. Those are the entries that scored at least 40 out of 45 in my scoring system (flip back to the contest announcement if you have no idea what's I'm talking about).
Now, while we're waiting, can anyone guess what the contest photo really is??
