I did not expect that but glad to be able to go. I am working in central LOndon at the moment so that is convenient. I will be taking my camera. :-P

Looking forward to seeing what is unveiled and hoping that there is a glass of champagne (or 2).

Well done chaps all round. We look forward to hearing your reports.

Disappointed some cynical sour grapes decided to question the motivations behind how CWL selected the winner... I am sure it was all good fun and perfectly fair. I'd like to read the winning entries though, as I'm sure they were entertaining!

inted some cynicanuts ur grapes decided to ion the spellchecker ns behind how CWL selected the winner... I am sure it was all good fun and perfectly fair. I'd like to read the winning entries though, as I'm sure they were entertaining!
I wouldn't mind reading my winning entry myself. Not sure how I managed to write 50ish words, without repeating, contradicting myself or generally losing track.
Or inserting random text/and or deleting the previous sentences! See quote above for example, not me the phone is to blame.
But seriously, I'm so looking forward to attending on Wednesday.

lol, mine probably made no sense at all by the time I realised it allowed you to actually type more than 50 words, so going back deleting bits.

It's always interesting to read winning entries, gives a bit of inspiration as to how on earth to give a reason for winning something. Just give me multiple choice questions in future please :D
