Pencils Down!

Times up!

The contest submission period is now closed! Thanks to everyone who entered, I’m seeing some amazing entries and it’s going to be another tough decision. I will spend the next couple days going through each one in detail. It’s such a treat to be able to see all the different approaches people took. I’m blown away by the creativity.

I will announce the winner on March 16th, but it will likely be later in the day (might even be the 17th in some parts of the world).

    Ahhh, Marina I misspelled soul as sole in my entry description and my sister and I have been laughing for hours! I’m sorry, I did not mean to reference a silly looking fish!

    Good luck everyone!

    Marina/Chad, will this be like past years where there have been elimination rounds? Maybe not an elimination round per se, but I was hoping that in addition to 1st place, 2nd and 3rd place winners will also be named along with runners up, like in past years?

    I’m so nervous I feel like my nose is going to bleed. I had to upload my entry like three times cause each time I found something that wasn’t perfect and I just couldn’t send it like that (misspellings too). Can’t imagine how much work you both are having going through all those uncountable entries I’m sure you received! Today we’ll be like a thousand anxious contestants crashing your blog with a million visits per second. My fingers won’t uncross until we have the results. Good luck everyone!
