It is an honor to be judged among some of the most incredible submissions this year. I was not expecting to win, I was just hoping to get third among those awesome flies. What a great showing of incredible talent out there, I am honored to be among you. 

Thank you judges for your time and effort to make this competition available. It is incredible to see such artistic expression and dedication to the craft. A huge applause to everyone who was involved.
