Congratulations to Quentin, Nicholas and Chris!

And, honestly, I'm glad to see these designs, especially #1 and #2, aren't a slightly modified version of a commonly used one, but truely genuine.

@Traumflug: "genuine"? Didn't you want to write "brilliant" or maybe "a touch of genius".

My read of their comment is they actually meant original or perhaps unique. I believe Traumflug is a native German speaker and while I don't know that much about German, I imagine the difference between genuine and original in English may be confusing since they are sometimes used in similar fashion, e.g. genuine parts vs original parts. And of course as I guess most here know, the concepts conveyed by words often have no precise translation.

Anyway I'm pleased as well. I was reading about the prize at the end of last year and beginning of this year again just to see what was up (I was around when it was originally annouced) and it seemed clear that things weren't going well. I missed the annoucement of it being extended with the new criteria (not important, I was never going to take part), and I'm pleased that it seemed to have been relatively successful with the changes. Hopefully this does indeed bode well for the main prize.
