G'day!

The competition has closed and we have the following remaining:

Category 1. REFINE - 16 entries
Category 2. CREATE - 33 entries

I'll prepare the judging poll as soon as I can and we will then see who wins in each category as voted by you all.

Thanks to all the entrants and contributors.

Steven

Hi all,

Sorry for the delay. I have spent many hours compiling all the pictures preparing them for judging but am not yet finished..

I've found a few more entries that don't comply so have had to disqualify them. The final count is;

Category 1. REFINE - 9 entries
Category 2. CREATE - 30 entries

Regards,
Steven
