I agree with MollyHeyer. There's no way to verify whether the spaces are rented or owned, self designed or professionally designed. When a contest needs to go into such details, things will become somewhat messy.

I do agree with Mountain King too that professional viewpoints are essential to ensure that an entry wins not because of winner's own wide social network.

More importantly, I feel every entry should get equal viewing/voting time as there are really some very nice ones that came in a bit too late.

Thank you hoosiermama. Some of the comments here can really be awful and unkind.

I am sorry your ego is bruised. I was debating internally if I should reply to your comment because I believe in world peace. But something about your behavior and comments thus far made me decide to reply.

Firstly, I do agree with your observation that the playing field should be leveled and that Apartment Therapy should post all the shortlisted entries at one shot so that no one can have any lead over others in terms of exposure duration. If there is a re-vote, I would not hesitate to join again so that things appear fairer in the eyes of everyone, especially someone so angered by the end result like yourself. All I did was entered the competition earlier than others… I do not deserve such harsh words and criticisms from you.

Secondly, my Asian upbringing has taught me to accept defeat graciously. I may have won in the International Category but should I not have, I would have accepted it anyway and conclude that different people indeed have different taste. I too have my favorites among the other categories. Even though I may not agree with the judges' choices, I will still respect that and not have chosen to put down others' entries the way you did because it reflects unfavorably on one's character. To me, all the personal attacks are unwarranted. It will only make the person making these comments appear petty.

Thirdly, I also do not appreciate your leaving a comment in my entry "Looks like someone has a lot of friends", insinuating that I have garnered a lot of votes because I have gotten my friends to vote for me. I was afraid of having misunderstood your comment then, but now I see it was pure sarcasm. Is it really necessary?

Lastly, as I mentioned earlier, different people have different taste. By insulting my entry in this manner, you have inadvertently insulted those who have kindly voted for me as well as the panel of judges.

This is all I have to say. Live and let live. It is only a harmless competition. There is no need to drag human kind into it.

Hi brody85, thank you!!! I didn't design the art piece above my bed... it was bought. I have another one in my stairway which I love too. ;) The flip card clock/calendar is battery operated. Thanks again for your compliments!
