Shipley exists in a bubble of what is known as Northern Time where the men all wear flat caps and train homing whippets whilst quaffing half-pints of warm beer down the mine. It might be that PoC has been busy and the next batch will be up soon.

I take offense to that GBSteve I am from Bradford and us North types don't drink half's, we leave that to softy Southeners :P
The static in my mind, leaves me hollow and unkind.

This last entry from Frank T. was a tricky one to scan in. :) What you can't see from the picture is that it's a lenticular image that changes scene as you move the card (from the bare stone of today, to the painted glory of the past - as seen above).

There's still a few days left to get entries in!

41 entries! (including the 8 yet to be put up). Wow! I'm amazed at the size and quality of the response. The next part of the competition is to shortlist the entries. We'll get something put up as soon as possible to enable voting and then the Secret Cabal will declare a winner (possibly at Dragonmeet).

Darn, left it too late to get an entry in. Great quality of responses though. I don't envy the judges. With this much interest, I hope it becomes a regular thing.

I'm glad to see mine made it, albeit even more illegible than when I mailed it.

I read that as "HELP ME THE NOISE FROM THE PIE IS IN MY HEAD", which is suitably insanity-inducing. Kind of depends on the pie filling, though.

This is HARD! I've gone through them and have a single clear favorite, and four other choices I like equally. I have to vote for three... Two are written by the same author, so I won't give him two of my three precious votes. That leaves three good and vote worthy entries for my two remaining votes. Wow... this is tough.

Overall I was impressed with a bunch of entries. Excellent work everyone.
