It was VERY HARD to determine the final list of our top 16 and we could have done even less as some creators greatly outpaced the others via our criteria but as this is our first contest we wanted to give as much opportunity to those who entered. Bottom line, everyone who submitted something was so awesome and we're so appreciative that we'll be debuting SEASON PACK prizes for ALL of those participants within this MARCH ART MADNESS contest!
