ACEO Challenge #15

We had 15 entries for the “At the Beach” challenge. Our winner as chosen by a team of jurors is Shelle of SunshineShelleZenobia will get in touch with you about your prize. Our first every People’s Choice Award is Stacy of MagicLoveCrow. I’m just finishing up on the People’s Choice Award badge for posting to your website.

I didn’t have any volunteers from the group here to act as jurors so I used selected family and friends. I think they did a great job. It was hard picking just one winner. I am creating a badge for the jurors to put on their website. If you become a juror, you will have the prestige of placing this badge on your website as well as adding the distinction of Juror on your artist’s resume. Your name and website will be linked to this site for the same period of time as the winners. Please consider becoming a juror for the August Challenge.
