Galleries month

Galleries Description month was full of epic articles and a lot of hard work went into each and every one of them courtesy of the Community Volunteers. This article is a roundup of everything published during the last month here at projecteducate and hopefully has helped a lot of you when it comes to understanding the descriptions of the galleries here and categorising your work. Huge thanks go to all involved who made this past month a success! We also held a A Contest of which the results will posted within the next week. Well done to all who entered - judging has commenced!
