I'm a little unclear as to what's going on with the contest.  Is it just on hold, for the moment?

I feel like it would be nice to still have, even if there weren't prizes.

Contest still running. The period for each contest was changed to two months. May June contest underway and entries have been submitted. It is a general contest, no specific requirements over the general rules.

Apologies.

I'm currently snowed under with work doing daytime / evening / weekend work on three different jobs.
It will be like this for another two weeks.

So I am struggling to find time to really listen to and comment on the competition this time round..
Please bear with me.


Justin is also super busy as he has been away on a week-long residential.


Fingers crossed Lieven can keep things going ...


It is on the to-do list.


Sorry.

:)

Thanks for letting us know, Richard.

If there'll be some delay on final comments on this one, can you let us know the format for the Jul/Aug contest?

Hope the jobs go well.

Knowing that the work you do here is a gift to us, or to put it another way, unpaid and voluntary, there's no need for an apology Close.

Please take care of yourself.

Thankyou for all you do for us.

THanks David, Batwoman.


What I will do is move the May / June entries leaving an open space for the upcoming July / August entries to start.


It is a normal month in terms of entries / style / rules etc.

I am going to suggest a change of theme for Sep / Oct and see what the others think.
And Nov / Dec may be festive themed again.
Watch this space.

Please do not place any entries for July yet … it looks likely there is a going to be a rule change.

Thanks for your patience in judging the May / June entries and please bear with us

Every single entry has to be a cover of "It's coming home?"

Good to see you seeing the funny side of it.

One more week of 3 jobs plus extra as and when I can for me so I should be on the case and doing my part of the judging hopefully from this coming Saturday.

Thanks Richard and don't stress.

As keen as I always am to receive feedback, I appreciate the extra effort you and Justin dedicate to this, over and above everyday matters. Generally you are really prompt, so no worries on a little delay.

I'd like to put something together for the July competition as I have some song ideas brewing.  Any sneak peek at what the new rules might have in store?

Thanks a lot,
