WELCOME to Unframed-Nature's BIG FLOWER ANNIVERSARY CONTEST Rusults:
Welcome dearest Members, Watchers, Friends, and Supporters of Unframed-Nature
Thank you so much for being here and joining us for the fabulous results of our "BIG Autumn FLower" Contest 2016! This was such an absolutely lovely and gorgeous contest from beginning to end! - (my sincerely apologies for sharing the results this late, all my [your Senior Team Leader's] doing. )
:flowers: First and foremost, we as our whole group, would just LOVE to thank you for ALL of the sensational flower deliveries (entries) that were bestowed upon us for our 10th YEAR ANNIVERSARY!
Oh, were they ever so much fun to receive!
We had seventy (70) entries, ALL awesome, and each one so beautiful, and truly there WERE some which were quite UNIQUE, and very CREATIVE, as were definitely mentioned for the criteria for setting one's own apart, for the specific judging criteria. How exciting to see!
We had some judging issues, but NOT with the judges who actually did come to judge.
Our judges did a brilliant job- I was amazed at the care they took, the way they took their criteria to heart, and the time they spent to do a compellingly impressive job, so well done!
But, mostly due to some communication issues, which I myself take on completely, we didn't have quite as many judges- and this is why, I, as your Senior Team Leader, never join ANY of the Contests (or even Themes) that we design out of our own group, and take extra great precautions in these "Big Contests" to even stay out of the voting process...
my role is the contest, itself, and then trying to encourage artists to join, and thank the members who do, but I hold myself to remain as unbiased as possible. This is very important, just in case, I need to step in for judging for any reason.
In the case of this contest, I did step in. My only role was called a "Secondary Judge".
What this means is, I ONLY
judged on works, in which our first judges had already chosen. In other words, I did NOT go back into the full body of entries and make my own brand new choices from ALL entries. I judged solely on works already judged on, by our judges who had come to judge, and from there we have our solid group of WINNERS!
(It is always important to me, to be honest with my members/Admins., both in general, and in the instance of this contest, about how things are handled.
And so, without further ado,
HERE ARE OUR FANTASTIC CREATIVELY UNIQUE FLOWER WINNERS!!!
