Congratulations Winners!

Congrats to Josh Hathaway on winning the grand prize giveaway of CS6 Design & Web Premium! And also to Tim Lemons the winner of iExpressions from Aescripts.com!

We had a great meetup last night with lots of new faces, all coming to hear me speak I'm sure. Had nothing to do with the $2,100 worth of software that we were giving away. 

As we mentioned in the last nights meetup we are looking for non-profits to partner with on the next giveaway in December. We are looking for non-profits that currently do some type of video production and would benefit from having a short (5-10 second) motion graphics piece to use, ie. logo intro animation etc. More details, schedule, and rules of the giveaway coming in the next week or so.
