Thank you all for your patience with the #AmigaArtContest Livestream failure yesterday - a piece of technology failed miserably causing disconnects from the Internet every 30 seconds or so. I won't name names... but take my advice and buy good quality cables!

Please join us as we share all of this beautiful artwork with you, chat about the Amiga in the art scene and dazzle you with witty repartee! (Two out of three ain't bad...)
Huge thanks to our sponsors for the prizes this year! You guys are all awesone!
