The Winners and Honourable Mentions

A Big Thank You!

So first of all a big thank you to all the designers and artists who contributed work, it was tough choosing winners - especially as I sorta left it kinda close to the last minute so thank you to everyone who responded and sent through the right artwork!

I'm sending out a set of emails and Flickrmails to all 13 finalists to arrange for you all to open Kiva accounts to make your loans! Having done some loaning on behalf of Envato, I must admit it's actually quite fun and after a while they generally get paid back and you can loan the money out again.
