TWO WORD CHALLENGE CONTEST JUDGED


Blog Posted:11/15/2017 6:54:00 PM

Did you ever wish that you had chosen the STANDARD CONTEST form instead of the PREMIERE CONTEST??

 

This had to be the toughest contest I have sponsored.

 

Thanks to all who entered

John, thanks so much for my awesome placement in your contest and congratulations to all your winners. I really dislike the premiere contest format. It is just too restrictive. It should at least allow for some honorable mentions. Just saying.

Just say NO (to Premiere Contest!!) After the one time I did it, I knew I could never do it again.

It must be so difficult to judge a contest knowing you have limited space for winners. My poem for your contest got POTD but wasn't on your list so I feel I am a winner by having that award:-) my congrats to all the winners:-) hugs jan xx
