Personal Note: Check out last year's gallery of the Solo online Poster Making Contest - Discover You. It has a similar format to this contest.

Here are last year's winning entries for female category and male category.

This contest has a comment box for other users to place their comments. As you will notice from last year's contest, there are a lot of negative comments placed even on the winners' entries. If you plan to join this contest, for sure you will receive negative or derogatory statements specially if they find your entry appealing. Ignore these haters (losers) because other people's negative comments are not part of the contest criteria.
