The committee thanks all authors for their submissions and their patience with the (longer-than-anticipated) adjudication process. The competition was extremely tight and the remaining submissions included many excellent papers that the referees singled out for special comment.

Although this exhausts the current funding, it is hoped that we will be able to repeat this competition in future years. The organisers also thank the adjudication panel for their hard work and willingness to help out.
