      Hi lindalee,

      Unfortunately, there was a bit of a delay in getting the Sponsor’s Choice finalized. We will announce all of the winners on Friday, March 30th.

    I have yet to find the announcement of the winners of the modern vintage design challenge! Have they been announced? I couldn’t even find mine listed! I got tired of trying to go through all of the projects to see! I can imagine what the voters thought, they probably never found it because I was somewhere in the middle!

    I suspect the people at the start of the slideshow/Flickr set are going to get a lot more chances at votes than the tail-enders :-(

      i have the same feeling…of course votes are subjective but the pics in the beginning got lot more views, this is relevant.

      Well, I conscientiously started on the second page but didn’t manage to view more than about twenty projects before I found myself skimming over them…

      I also agree, that with so many entries, those on Page 2 are at a disadvantage.

      Please consider for future People’s Choice Voting, to create a “Show Case” for the Top 15-25, as Semi-Finalists.

      Thank you for this feedback, guys.

      We created the Flickr slideshow to make it easier to view all of the submissions, as we wanted to give everyone as a fair of an opportunity as possible.

      For this particular contest, the results were spread pretty evenly among submissions. Nonetheless, considering that there were so many submissions, we will consider revising this voting method for future contests.

      I also support the idea of having a two phase system in which judges determine a list of one or two dozen semifinalists, who are then voted on by the BurdaStyle community. I also think it’s important to randomize the list of entries so they are presented to each voter in a different order.

      We wanted the voting system to be as fair as we could possibly make it with our current resources, as we felt that creating a list of semifinalists based on our subjective preferences would leave out others who were just as deserving of the prize.

      However, we do understand the flaw in this system, and apologize for the inconvenience that it has caused. We will consider a different approach with future contests.
