I've enjoyed doing the contest. With judges, it was pretty good and everything ran pretty smooth. When I switched it to any member being able to vote, I wasn't sure what to expect. But that said, I had more people voting this way than previous so I'll look at it as a good upgrade. I've changed it from voting for your three favorites last year to top five so that will add some more dimension as well.
I'm looking forward to seeing cool stuff. Many I've never seen in person or even heard of.
