  1. Thanks, Mike. I’m new to your flyer and it’s great–thanks so much. I notice that you post lots of information about award results. Do you also post calls for award submissions?

  2. Thanks, Mike. I was asking because I want to submit my own work for awards, not because I run an award. That’s good to know–I will keep an eye on your flyer. All best.
