Specializing in Communication Design, Digital Media, Commercial Interior, Residential Interior and Branded Fashion - Billy Blue College of Design empowers people to change the world.

According to the official rules the 25 finalists will get chosen on or before the 31st October by deviant art staff, from there the 25 entries get passed along to Billy Blue for the final judging but there doesn't seem to be a date for the final winner being chosen after that. I can't imagine it taking more then a week or so to review though? I have no idea.

Do you have permission from `PatrickRuegheimer to use his image, I wasn't aware he offered 'stock'.

Regardless, this link is not included in the contest as A> You cannot use 3rd party stock and B> More importantly, you haven't submitted it properly.
