Submitted by purmusic 04/19/09 6:07 PM GMT

The contest gauntlet was laid down ... and once again, the membership rose to the challenge at hand.
A big well done to all who participated in the "Negative Space" contest. Take a bow, people, you deserve it. For your work and creativity behind your entries and submissions, passing word along of the contest to newer/other members, and for assisting one another in defining the contest's concept. Thank you very much for the show of community spirit that is And again, some wonderful imagery will take their respectful and rightful places along side those of the site's past run contests in the contest gallery archives.

And .. (*drumroll*) .. the winners are. Each of the four winners has received a 3-month Cadre membership.

Congrats to the four winners. As mentioned already, quite a few of you really stepped it up a notch! There were some very imaginitive and fun posts.

I'd like to say thanks for the honorable mention. Given the stiff competiton, I'm lucky to have even gotten that.
