    Yeah. Somehow this contest died off a bit.
    Re-fin-away who was running the contest left the community for private reasons. Also at some point it was hard to get many members sending in their pics.

    If somebody has creative ideas to revamp this and willing to moderate the contest please sent me a PM.
