Some of you may have seen me post about the competition which has been held on SFM:uk with a theme of "The British are Coming". Well the closing date for the entries has finally arrived and they are now all online. Now it's your chance to vote those which will be the overall winners.

So please take a moment to visit the competition pages and see all the entries (26 in total) and registering your vote!! I'm sure you'll agree that there is an amazing standard of work there.
