8 Entries! This is getting tight, but the odds have never been better. That said, today we introduce our Contest Master, Jill Slater (left), who will be making all decisions regarding rules and submissions in this year's contest. A good idea that Wende (and perhaps a few others)passed on to us, the Contest Master is the sole arbiter and the final word in all disputes. She stands as a neutral (and tough) island in the midst of the swirling madness and all editors, judges and readers are bound to listen to her ruling. Sit tight and hear her roar.

Got something that's wonderful and small? A store? A product? An idea? Email us and we'll post it if it's really good: newyork (at) apartmenttherapy (dot) com.
