The judges for the 2010 competition were David Brothers, Carol Burrell, Brian Cronin and Katie & Dan Merritt. That picture of the character Aya is from the first book in the D&Q series; I couldn't find a single decent interior shot from the third book, and never received one myself.

This story was also run Sunday morning, and is being re-run for maximum exposure.
