A quick update!

A big thanks to everyone who submitted :) 

Here's what happens next: at some point on October 1st or 2nd, I will finalize the shortlist, which I will send to everyone who has entered. I will also forward these submissions to Michelle Barker for the final round of judging.

Expect an announcement about the three winners by mid-October!

All the best,

David Brown
