| about our special contributors:
mus-mus would like to thank all who have agreed to participate in this project with their photographs, submissions, comments and support.
It is risky business to thank folks 'in particular' because inevitably someone important goes unmentioned. Still we try. We would like to say a special thanks to Roger Ballen, Frederic Bellay, Elie Domit, Amy Stein, Liz Kuball, Ch'ng Yaohong, and for getting behind our effort early and in many ways. And a very special thanks to Jason Fulford, Michael David Murphy, Mrs Deane and Laurence Vecten for their extraordinary assistance in serving as jurors, acting as town criers to get the word out and their all around team spirit and 'good sportsmanship'.
To you all mus-mus says -- 'Très grand merci and many, many thanks.'
