Who Won in 2011?

Congrats to all the winners!

Thanks to all partners and sponsors.

Admittedly, we’d still love to see more entries, and this was a tough year for attracting prizes, but we got some really quality pieces(read and see for yourself), and we tried to evenly distribute what we were able to attract (weighing in sponsor preferences) and keeping in mind that the prizes are an incentive not the point of creating.

In addition to prizes mentioned, all winners receive a certificate from the Wadadli Pen team; plus the Challenge plaque, sponsored by Best of Books, has been emblazoned with the winner’s name and will hang in the store until it is updated with the next winner’s name.
