Still waiting for the results from this contest and the critique I paid for. Is there someone we can email to ask where this information is?

The volunteers must be running behind. You are welcome to call the PPA offices.

I have had my copy in hand for almost a week now. I can't tell you anything about the critiques. I have a call in to PPA and will post here as soon as I find out.

According to the rules, they were going to post the results on a web site and email critiques to those that requested them.

Has anyone heard anything? I'm still waiting as well.

Results are posted here, and PPA tells me that critiques will be sent out mid-December.

December 20th... still no critiques emailed to us. Anyone get their critiques yet? Anyone know when they will be emailed?

No critique here either. I expect to have it, or a full refund of the monies paid for the contest, by the end of the month. It's just bad business to charge for service and then not provide it. The only reason I entered the contest was so that I could get the critique to help me determine if I wanted to submit to the annual competition.

I sure hope these delays don't become a trend.

Hi, I am sorry about the delays in the critiques. PPA has had many software issues on their plate the last three months and just couldn't get to this one. That is not an excuse, but an explanation as you have waited longer than you should have. For that I am sorry. The software needed to do the critiques is up and running and the Critique Team has been notified. My understanding that as the critiques are completed, you will be notified with an e-mail, your critique should be attached. It is the goal of the Critique Team to have all finished by IUSA in a few weeks.

Again, I am sorry this has taken this long and thank you for your patience while we finish creating the critiques.

As far as the delays becoming a trend, next year the software will already be in place and that should speed up the process in coming years.

PPA Staff is working on a solution to this problem. I forwarded your message to the staff person in charge of this. Like Dennis said before, we are sorry for the delay. We hope to have the information out shortly.
