I'm certainly looking forward to the contest administrator sending me the collated entries.

Please do wander around some of the natural and urban monuments the organisation seeks to protect:

You can also create a page just for your country or another country that piques your interest, and write about either.

kindest regards,

Alan Summers

Just got a preview of the full results special feature.  As it's early evening in New York, you might hopefully see the feature up mid-afternoon New York time.

If not, I'll make an announcement when it's up.
