We are sorry for the delay.
We have tried by any mean to contact Andromega Volare, the third judge of the contest. But he hasn't been yet available. So we have proceeded to pick up the winners with a new panel made up by Vint Falken, Raul Crimson and the Koinup Staff.

According to judges the winners of Windlight Contest are...  (community winner)

The winner will get the amazing prize: Liquid Void created by Liquid Heat. Liquid Void is an instant rezzable land, that you can rez in your sim.
