As is common with designers, I’ll be working with Derek to “tweak” this a bit and we’ll be using it for the first time on our next round of competitions.

As winner, Derek will receive a $100 Amazon gift card as well as a link to his site from the awards post. Congratulations, Derek!

    What Tracy said. Once presented, it was the clear winner. Nice to see the voters agreed.

    Kudos to all designers for putting their designs out there for us to judge and vote on. :-)

    That is a really good looking badge! They were all good, so that was a tough competition. I really like the color palette on the winner, it goes great with the site. It is really eye catching.
