Australia has lots of rules and regulations.
also the prizes are most likely pre purchased and postage in one country wouldn't be as big of an issue.

However that's just a guess and I could be wrong.

Do we actually know when the comp is being judged?????

I don't belive so.
However if I had to guess between now and the start of next week?

I don't think they would put up a time as judging can be very difficult and more time might be needed to choose the winers.

I know it's hard to wait around as the antisipation is killing everyone, but we should respect the judges carefull choosings.

From what I have seen Its not going to be a simple choice.

Don't stress yourself Arsevere as this was only open to Australian residents.

I have noticed a lot of artist who would have loved to submit artwork but unfortunately don't reside in Australia. :/

so this is a bit of a weird comment but i'm pretty certain my account is set to the wrong email does anyone know how to change that?
have the winners been announced? if my email were wrong and i did perchance win something would i still be informed or am I to assume that hearing nothing means I have not won anything? just worried about missing out on something because of the wrong email.

its in your account settings to see what your email is to your DA account. Go to top right avatar into settings then on the left go to General tab. You should see the email in the list near the top.

Practice like no tomorrow.  I only started to learn how to draw 4 years ago (22 y.o. now).  You are only 13, you have nothing but time.  Keep practicing. Don't stop. :)

My art was horrible when I was your age! If you are that good the age you are now, I am sure in 10 years time you would be the next Michelangelo. Keep up the good work <3
