Guys,

Before I announce the winners of the competition, I want to make one thing clear: ALL OF THE WORKS WERE AWESOME!!!!

You guys gave me such a hard time with your submissions … I will never forgive you for that 😉

Had to go through all of 116 banner submissions, one by one, shortlist, then the shortlist was too big, cannot have 50 shortlisted works, then I had to go through that again …

Anyways, thank you all for submitting your work, thank you for your effort – I appreciate it very much!

I hope you had fun creating and to all of you who voted and commented on Facebook, thank you too – it helped me a lot during the selection.

So, the competition was so strong, that I just could not select only seven submissions and leave it there. Therefore, I decided to introduce one more category for those works that did not make it to the top 7 but were very very close and if I had more sponsors those would certainly be rewarded with prizes. So, there are 14 more works with HONORABLE MENTION!

One more thing, some of the winners who submitted more than one work probably deserved more than one prize with your works, but, I had only 7 prizes to give away and hope you will agree with me, I had to give only one prize per author.

OK. Enough talking now.

Ladies and gentleman, it is a special privilege for me tonight and a great honor, to introduce you to

Thank you all, once again, it was a great pleasure to organize this competition! I hope I will be able to organize one more competition soon and would like to use this opportunity to invite potential sponsors to help me out with the prizes. Once again, BIG THANKS goes to our sponsor Katie Cotton (Katie Cotton blog). Katie creates paper makup stamps and here is the link to her Paper Makup Stamps Blog ->

What can I say? It was fun! It was a great experience! There was  a total of 116 submissions which were seen by thousands of graphic design enthusiasts, professionals and amateurs alike and I think it is a great success for all of us!

Love you all and never forget: Have fun creating!

Silvia
