So, we just wrapped up the first stage of the first ConceptSurgeon contest. I wanted to thank Dom aka @TheShoeSurgeon for flying across to London to pick the winner with me, and also thank Creative Debuts for letting us use their space, and Perky Blenders for keeping us both caffeinated.

Given this is our first challenge together, we’re both pretty much learning as we go. We’ll prob do a little re-structuring for the next challenge, as well as operate the live-stream (if we do one) a little differently also. Overall I can say without a doubt I was super happy with the amount and level of entries, from amateur through the pro, we had entrants for all over the place. Thakyou to all who took part.

I can’t say too much, but we have some pretty interesting plans with ConceptSurgeon, plans that will offer our community something that has been sorely lacking for quite some time. I’m excited to roll it out, i”m sure it will all come clear over the next few challenges.

Congrats to Corentin and to everyone who entered, there’s plenty more to come.


For those that weren’t happy with certain parts of the challenge, if you were respectful and voiced your opinion in a constructive way, thank you – we appreciate the feedback and will take it into consideration moving forward.
