G'day all,

after much pain and agony, I have a viewing board ready for you to 
see the full selection of the submissions for year 2 --- all 989 of 
them: yes we have gone very close to reaching 1000 images this year 
and far outstriped last years total. In general, I also think the 
images are better in variety, and will give the judges a lot to think 


I need to hear from the judges: how do you think we should go about 
distributing this file: It took hours to upload, and I fear that with 
such a huge number of submissions, the only fair way to judge them 
will be to have each judge review the images from their own computer: 
after all, if it takes 20 seconds to download the images and 20 
seconds to look at them, you would have to take 10 straight hours 
just to see the entire group.

I have thought about sending CD's to someone in the states and Europe 
and they could be distributed from there: any takers prepared to act 
as postmen? This would slow up the process, but at least the voting 
would be done at leisure.

I await comments: can you do this huge task from the web?

Cheers and here's luck

ps if there are any problems with the site please let me know: I'm 
sure to have made some mistakes :-(
