    Congratulations to Arkady, William and Justin, the three finalists in the last contest. The “Moment” jury did a great job in selecting you guys out of so many submissions. The sharper the competition, the better it is for all of us to keep us on our toes.

    The joy is really in the competing, not in the winning. Everyone on this site knows that. Thanks so much to all for creating the whole picture.
