Truly inspiring - choosing your favourite is not going to be easy ... There are only two entries in the Beginners Category (No. 3 and No. 6) so each has a pretty good chance of winning!

Once you have chosen your favourite from each category, please email your 2 choices to us at , or post your vote right here on our blog. All votes must include your name and email address, plus a few words explaining your reason for each choice.

The entries with the most votes in each category by 5pm on May 8th will be the winners.

Please refer to the list of guidelines on our website if you require further information on voting, or any aspect of the challenge.
