Why was it voting now?

  • Why were the first two contests judged and this contest had people voting?
  • Good question!


    As folks showed interest in our contests, we thought it might be fun to let them be involved, even if they weren't finalists, by voting on who they thought should win. So we arranged a voting system for our most recent contest, to see what kind of involvement we got and to figure out what would be involved in public voting for all future contests.


    It was very interesting to open it up and watch the counts come in as people decided for themselves. We do have a grand prize winner, but as you probably know, we're not announcing the results just yet. 


    Thanks for the question -- feel free to send me a private message if you would like more details.
