I have to say the new format of showing all entries together is very confusing to me. I'm not sure what catagory each piece was in, or if I voted in each catagory.I suspect this is the last year of this contest.
Yes, it's really become disappointing. I don't like that they show how many votes each piece is getting. Makes me want to vote for the pieces with the least amount of votes - just 'cause. Also, I don't remember having to be a member of Beading Daily in order to vote in the past. And so it goes.
