What I truly enjoy regarding QA's contests is how many of the artists, myself included, make posts along the lines of, "Hadn't tried this technique before, but it was fun!"  "This challenge captured my imagination..."  "I learned so much from trying this challenge."  It may sound cliche', but these challenges ARE so much fun, whether or not you win.  They give individuals the 'permission' to try new things, without the need for perfection, simply a desire to play and learn and find satisfaction in the finished work.  The size is not a huge investment in time or money, another freedom to give it a try!  Thank you QA, Pokey, and all!
