Congratulations also to all the runners-up who made it into the shortlist of 52! The 20 winning badges are now available for purchase. The others have not been produced by us but will stay online to give credit to everybody who made it into the shortlist.

In addition to everybody on the shortlist we also feel we should mention a few intriguing designs that would have made lovely badges. Unfortunately they did not score enough points this time. A big hands down for (in no particular order): Demunt Wei, Kimberly Kuprijanow aka Kupi, Raymundo Rincon, Sonja Heinen, Angela Gbemisola, Marina Mijatovic, Iska Lam, Andy Hulland aka mrthebeef,...

And last but not least a big THANK YOU goes once again to the nice people from the judging panel who helped us so much!
