It’s OVER…..and my apologies since so many never knew it began.
{Keep the drum rolling please, suspense is always good}, FIRST, please take a bow, CAT/Animaniactoo, for picking up the ball that I never could keep rolling. Cat has done a terrific job here and I appreciate her very much!

Contest results, These are the judges' clear winners and I can see why!

LET’S STEP INTO THE SPOTLIGHT with our WINNING ENTRY- INTO THE VOID” by BOREMACHINE !!!!!! Great work, Congratulations! When I look at it, I think of that old song “In the year 2525” ARTIST: Zager and Evans TITLE: In the Year 2525

{excerpt : In the year 5555 Your arms hanging limp at your sides. Your legs got nothing to do. Some machine doing that for you.

Urban Life certainly knows the escalators and people movers as bored commuters go from work to home like drones. {Take a bow, Chris! }

MOST CREATIVE: Wet by Metpin777 { captured the essence of urban life and cooling off in the hot summertime. Makes me think of SUMMER IN THE CITY, lol…and yes, knowing those songs show one’s age, so I’ll stop and just say, well done! Congratulations to Metpin777 { Steven} !

Winner for Most Popular Setting is : Cities Edge by Vlad421 It has an elemental glow of life… aura! Nice work!

Winner for City in Motion: inside, outside and all around, by Third Eye / Rob His entry reflects the hustle and bustle of city life when people are always on the move.

HONORABLE MENTIONS: WESTMINSTER by JQ Sacramento Jazz by Sketchermandee Can’t Find my Mum by Toto_San Nightscape by EmilyH

I think that there are some fantastic images NOT mentioned and wish all could have won, but hold your head high: if your entry didn’t win, it doesn’t mean your work wasn’t fantastic, just means to judges, the ones chosen best fit the essence of URBAN LIFE itself.

Congratz to all! You were all great sports amidst the confusion, and I hope everyone had fun. I won’t start another contest unless I take a contest 101 class. *bows* MadMaven
