    BEST USE OF TEXT

    BEST USE OF TEXT best use of text BEST USE OF TEXT best use of text BeSt usE oF TExt... annoying?

    Okay, enough with the typing, but this is afterall the category for the best use of text and that includes the many ways that it can be used to give character to a piece. Whether it's the fonts that you use, the style you do your text in, big words, little words, blended words, patterns on your text, outlines and shadows, it can be any numbers of tricks of the trade to make your text stand out or make your wallpaper stand out. This category is all about celebrating all the a-text-tion to detail of our words :P

    We had 48 wallpapers nominated in this category (with 4 not eligible) and so we will be having 22 awards again, with 15 placements, 5 runners up and 2 honourable mentions hiding behind those spoiler tags.

    If you're done reading this boring bit (if you actually read it say TEXTACTULAR in your reply, lol, I want to see if anyone does it) on with the awards!
