Thanks for your support.

Hi MSI,

What's happening with this competition? Over a week has passed since the end submission date, and there is still no information published on who the winners are.

Another issue is that the web site it says that submissions closed on the 1/9/14 however it does not appear that submissions have been closed. It appears that people can still submit an entry even though it’s passed the submission date.

I have worked really hard to get my animation submitted on time and I'm anxious to know who has won, and I'm sure my fellow competitors would like to know who the winner is as well.

Can you please publish some information on what is happening with this competition?
