The assignment:

To be completed before the beginning of December 2022.

Design the front of a Christmas card for the Zoom Open Group. (to be PC, I suggest Winter Festival as an alternative subject title).

The day of the grand judging ceremony arrived.
No expense was spared. The judges arrive by motorcade, private jet and helicopter.
They assembled in a specially erected Virtual Bake Off Tent on the lawns of ZOG House.
Cocktails were consumed, canapes munched and a display of fireworks were launched.
The panel of experts carefully examined and discussed the entries to this prestigious event.
After some time a scribe was summoned to draw up a certificate outlining the decision of the illustrious team.
The certificate, inscribed on vellum, is carefully folded and placed in a gold envelope.

:bell: The Awards :bell:
A herald reads from the fine script on the document drawn from the gold envelope.
It has been decided, after careful examination of all the material submitted, to create a special category.
The standard is so high that all those who entered this should be awarded Joint First Place and they should be officially thanked for participating in this year’s fun ZOG event.

The list of Joint First Place successful entries, in order of submission, is displayed below and a Gallery of Winners follows.
