"Curves" contest results

Submitted by caedes 10/04/08 2:46 AM GMT

To the participants, I am pleased to say that the "Curves" contest turned out to be the most successful contest that has run on the site. A big thank you to all members that took their considered time in interpreting the concept/theme and submitted some wonderful imagery that will now reside in the site's contest archives. Whether the imagery had it's roots behind a camera, or in a chair in front of a monitor with software, it was most impressive.

Thanks also to Les (purmusic) and the other moderators who worked to make this contest go so smoothly.

Four winners in three categories have received honorary titles as well as three month Cadre memberships. Four honorable mention entries also receive one month Cadre memberships. Without further delay: the "Curves" contest results.

The difficult part about this contest was that there were SO MANY incredible entries! Top congratulations to all winners and honorable mentions! And thanks to Geri, Les, and the Mods (hmmm, sounds like a rock band) for all their work. One of the great things I got out of the "curves" subject was scanning the landscape for them and finding them everywhere...

Thanks to all those that are responsible for running these Caedes contests, they're a lot of fun and generate a ton of cool images. Congratulations to ALL who entered and shared their "curvisions," they were inspiring and fascinating. Finally, thanks to those who voted for my image. I'm pleased that it touched you in some way. Yet I agree with many who believe that we're all winners for experiencing the creative process and for having an opportunity to share our visions with so many wonderful people on this terrific site.
