288

About 40 less than last year, but we tightened the constraint to a minimum of two votes to qualify this year. This flushes out A LOT of posters that were just liked enough by one person only to get nominated. It would have been 618 prints with last year's rule.

ahhh ok that explains it! :mrgreen:

What is the end date for the contest? I'm also curious if vote count will be disclosed. I've always wondered how many of the 12,000 members are active , seems this would give a pretty good idea.

Every votes counts! 1st and 2nd are neck and neck and so is 3rd and 4th and so is 5th and 6th. Amazingly close race.

It's not easy. Emek has worked so, so hard for this award. So has Jay Ryan and Dan McCarthy. They so want to make art better.
They just don't want to see it go backwards.
