Update

Greetings Second Life residents!

Just an update to inform all of you that the Photographer of the year award LOGOs will be done in 2 days time! We’re very excited to have different LOGOs for different purposes. Logo for the website will be different from the one we’ll use on the trophy as well on social media.

Second update is to let voters be aware that when you vote on comments, we know you’re the same person despite using a different name/email as we can see your IP address. Same IP addresses voting the same photographer(s) more than once will be deleted!

Thank you.
