"As we begin to announce finalists, and ultimately the winners and runners-up in each division, it is proving to be a very tight and exciting race... The depth of talent (in a variety of styles) is truly impressive."

SPECIAL NOTE to SEMI-FINALISTS: Even if you were not advanced to the final round, the competition is not yet over. The judges reserve the right to award honorable mentions and citations to any candidate, at their discretion, and have honored semi-finalists in the past for further recognition. Additional information about honors and opportunities for semi-finalists will be included in the upcoming edition of "On TAP," our e-newsletter, which will be sent in early June to the email addresses of all contestants we have on file.
