The combination of a fairly easy theme and growing interest in the ePHOTOzine competition has ensured a record number of entries for the May theme of patterns and textures. You'll also notice a new addition to the results this month as we now show the short listed entries separate from the whole collection. So now you can look at what nearly made it and hopefully this will help you when entering future competitions. In all competitions judged by magazines and picture editors, they weed out the chaff and end up with a selection like this. It's then more manageable to pick the winners and runner ups. The problem is you never get chance to see the close callers...well that was until now!

We picked the winning photo for its rich colour and almost touchable texture. I think you'll agree it leaps off the screen! The three runner-ups came so close too. It's the most closely matched set of winning entries we've had to date. Well done all who made it to the shortlist and commiserations to the ones who didn't please don't let this put you off entering the silhouettes competition for June.
