Well, as is often the case...Murphy's Law applies. No, not the one about a Smith & Wesson beating Four Aces, but you get the idea.
I'll be out of town on business related matters until the end of July. That means, even if folks send submissions in, I won't be able to review them, much less post them.
So, basically...the contest deadline is being moved to 10 August. At that time I will post all entries in the order they show up in my inbox (thrandrall[at]gmail.com) and then proceed to choose the winners...followed by a week of viewer voting for the fan favorite. The upside of this is that the contest is now worth a total of $400. $200 for first, $125 for second, and $75 for third. With an additional $100 for the viewer's choice.
Additionally, I can promise all of you out there a flood of brand, spanking new commissions when I return - most of which have not been previously posted anywhere...so at least you've got something to look forward to.
I eagerly and sincerely await all your contest entries - and look forward to exhibiting them to the community.
