Note: We endeavor to judge, award and announce the winner within a 14 week time-frame following the closing date, sometimes, we are able to announce sooner and at other times, it takes longer. This is dependent on the number of submissions and the quality of work. Also, word count naturally plays a part in the judging process. Where there are delays, we will announce in our Facebook group and in the FREE Creative Competitor News! Please join us and we will keep you informed.  Entry implies acceptance to these rules.
