The monthly article contest has been upgraded ever so slightly to make it easier for those writing articles outside of our main categories to get more of the limelight. Previously we had a "Best Overall" category but this has been replaced with a "Best of Everything Else" category which specifically won't include any articles already in the running in the existing categories.

Another change we've made is to award a runner up prize. With hundreds of articles a month we need to showcase more of your brilliant creations so doubling the number of winners is a good first step.

Please take a moment to vote on the article competition pages. See the homepage for the links.

cheers,
Chris Maunder
