I don't know--it's just a bit aggravating when they gave us like 6 days for the contest, and it's taken over 3 weeks for the judging. And we haven't even gotten a list of the semi-finalists. Sheesh. I'm just hoping to hear something soon. :/

"The three winners will be announced by appearing one at a time and one per day on June 26, June 27, and June 28 in home page billboard takeovers and thereafter in a message center announcement on deviantART to all entrant". Still no 25 semi-finalists?
