The judging panel comprised founder member Martin Anderson MBE, the Asssociation's chair Alan Graham and Thumb Print editor Christine Morton. During the judging there was not a dry eye in the house as the judges read the deeply touching personal stories some had sent in with their entries.
The winners were:
Rodney Lunn won the person living with MND category with his design Carol singers in Trafalgar Square. Sadly Rodney died just before we were able to notify him that he had won the competition.
