Oh, I'm supposed to write here, am I? I probably should do that then.
Despite some minor difficulties, including Zombiebaron opening the PLS without confirming we had prize money, Zombiebaron locking the entries too early, Zombiebaron setting the wrong unlock time for the entries, plus a few last-minute scrambles, a bit of controversy over judges entering, the total absence of e|m|c, and a rather embarrassing incident involving an enormous clam and a bit too much to drink, the PLS went off well.
I say that having absolutely no idea what the other PLS competitions were like, but still.
It looks like, yes, you will get prize money, so send your postal addresses to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are homeless, consider yourself out of luck.
The scoring system was based on a points. Judges were asked to submit their top 5, points being awarded as:
5 points for #1,
4 points for #2,
3 points for #3,
and so on. Total scores are below. Entries not below received no points, though they were judged. Consult any of the judges for questions.
