A big round of applause is due to our sponsors - all of whom participated because they believed in what the organizers all believe in: "design matters." The organizers were honored to have Adobe, whose tools are widely considered the industry standard by designers, contribute to this contest. Not to mention West Civ who was the first to agree to contribute to this contest. Thank you for your vision and for an amazing tool: Style Master.

I fear that Six Apart will have taken far too much credit for this contest when all is said and done. While we were involved, this contest is really the result of literally countless hours of hard work from members from our esteemed Professional Network community. Without Arvind, Elise and Jesse this contest would have never happened. They were the ones that brought this idea to Six Apart, and without them this contest would never have happened. If you could see me, I am standing up at my computer giving them a standing ovation.

And let's not forget the judges: John Allsop, Douglas Beach, Derek Powazek, Joelle Reeder, Jason Santa Maria, Kathy Scoleri, and Lilia Ahner. I am not sure they were fully aware of what they were signing up for. I am sure they were all like, "sure, I can judge a few styles. How much time would that take?" Well, a lot. With 146 styles submitted to the contest, three browsers and multiple platforms, at least 2 pages and on average 3 layouts per style -- well, you do the math. That's is a lot of work. Thank you judges!

And last, but definitely not least, I would like to thank all those who contributed to this contest. I consider a great honor to be associated with this contest, and no matter how great the sponsors and organizers were, I could not say that if I wasn't flat out amazed by the overall caliber of all the designs submitted. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
