    Sorry for the late response Jen

    We put up your badge (2011 DSLR Champ) and we will soon post your award certificate. Hall of fame display is coming soon as the bugs in speed/server seem to be worked out thankfully

    I am organizing winners for the APT software license (there will be only one for each category - for those picked by members) but have been a bit slow on the last two I am sorry.
