    BEST USE OF STOCKS

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Say it isn't so!!! This marks the last of our regular categories which means that the ceremony and all this fun is almost over!!!!!!!

    Best Use of Stocks had the highest number of nominations with 51 wallpapers to choose from, each of which used different stocks to really create something uniques in each piece. Stocks can be a fickle thing, but damn if they don't add something awesome to your piece. With a wide range of stock images from models for manipulations, nature stocks, stocks of the elements, city-scapes, or just objects to really add to your piece, let's face it they can make or break your wallpaper.

    Anyway, I've said waaaaay too much tonight already. So, let's just say, 51 nominations, 5 not eligible for awards leaving 46, we still have 22 fab awards to give out tonight and these are also going to be the last designs from our volunteers who helped with this event!!!!!!

    .......

    Congrats to the winners! Special shout-out to my top three: Zugma, Sunnywill, and Demetreas. Great job to all the awardmakers, too. So pretty. And great job to those who didn't win awards. This was a tough category to judge.

    I think this might be my favorite of all of WiccaJaz's award designs! And that's saying something! Congrats to Zugma, who always seems to be able to find the perfect stocks to use

    These ladies are probably tired of me saying their names ( ) but, shoutouts to my faves Amber, Heather, Lyn, Jennilou and SmthBlue!

    Again have to say bravo to award designers, especially to WiccaJaz and Debbie (oh my, those 10th place)

    I agree that stock category is one of the most difficult to judge because of the amount of fantastic arts. Congrats to all the winners and special shouts to jj, who was my #1 with her "two stars align" piece. Than goes my country proud (yay to be the Ukrainian) Smthblue, Zugma, Nai, Sharonalee. And have to name sayjay and demetreas and my list is just too long, so I'd better stop

    Stocks. So hard to choose. So many ways to use them. I am shocked to have placed so high!

    Also, it's incredible how the tech category award designs are particularly beautiful. Each is their own little work of art. Seriously. In love here.

    Smth Blue, SJ, Areola, Debbie and Sunnywill placed high with me!

    congrats to all the winners.
    some very cool award designs in this category (ie, Heather, Clement and Debbie)
    stocks was never my strong suit, so to receive an award at all is pretty awesome.

    my favs: Zugma, Jenni Lou, SmthBlue, JJ, Aureola

    Okay so I am now catching up on my own feedback for the awards now the ceremony is over!!!

    How in the hell did I get 4th place with soooo many amazing pieces this year??? My absolute favourite piece here was Dream by Tam, it got my #1 spot, LOVED it so much! Zugma was my #2 and Aureola my #3 with Xinyi, Sting, Lyn and Jennilou following behind them - all of which had FAB wallpapers that were both stunning and had fab use of stocks!!

    In terms of the awards special shout outs to Erin and WiccaJaz for their amazing concepts for the awards, and also to the ever amazing Lyn who made five GORGEOUS awards for me, you rawk!!!

    Ok, so I probably started off my last 20 posts with "WOW!". But, seriously. Wow! The technique awards are always my favorite to look at and see what people created to represent the categories. Absolutely stunning all around! WiccaJaz, Debbie, and Clement! Just gorgeous! And, Yay!!! I got one of Lyn's designs! I love it!!!

    I honestly couldn't even remember what I had entered for this category when I first came in here, and had to see what it was from the award. XD Thank you to everyone that voted.

    Techniques are always some of the hardest categories to judge, and this year was no different. Extreme shout outs to my Top 5: Line (I think I die every time I see this wallpaper. Its so fraking flawless! Can't say it enough.), SayJay (Seriously, one of my favorite wallpapers from you last year. I can't even!), Smth_Blue, Zugma, and Aureola.

    Debbie! I adore that award!! Thank you so much! And thank you to all who voted for my wall!

    This category was tough to judge, but also one of the most fun. So many creative, gorgeous pieces. My favorites were Tam (your Dream wallpaper was genious!), Jenni Lou, Sayjay, Debbie and JJ. But seriously, it was very hard to choose. So - congratulations, everyone who participated!
