I must say that I am surprised and humbled, seriously. I want to thank all of those people that voted for my two projects, and participating in the competition. Eventhough some of us won prizes, all of us are winners for such a well run contest with such great projects.

Thanks Martin for putting this whole concept together,

Congratulations to all the winners. It was amazing at the quality and creativity of all the works involved. It was difficult to choose one particular entry over another.

Looks like I have to step up my game if I want to compete next year.
