Our project competition started with the prize of a one-year liveBooks.edu website. It grew, as PZ Direct, sellers of Pina Zangaro portfolios, offered to donate 4 portfolio packages. Lastly, I had a Pina Zangaro portfolio that I had retired, which I offered up as a 6th prize.
The students submitted images for an online gallery, which is what was used for the judging. You can view the galleries here (note: you need to click once to enlarge the gallery to viewing size):
