Recently Minismodernas (a great source for modern miniatures based in Spain) held their third annual modern miniature contest.  The premise was to make a modern miniature scene.  The results of the contest are in.....This year's winner is....me. I was on vacation in Michigan when Rosa e-mailed me that I won.  I was so excited!!! I feel especially honored since one of the judges was the amazing Pablo Leal of Amatheria. As you may remember, I posted this scene a couple of months ago to welcome summer. You can see the details here.

 The runner up for the contest is...The Japanese house by Nadine Bedini.  You can see more details of this awesome house at Minismodernas blog.

Here are some photos of the other entries for the contest. 

 Scene Contrasts by Mandy Vlak of Mini Modern Mind.  I love the colors and that painting is awesome!

 The MiPad in Black and White by Megan of Modern Mini Houses.  This is one of the famous new MiPad rooms from Elaine Shaw at Miaim Miniatures

A Summer Scene by Irene Mont.  I like the relaxing feeling here.

The Modern Loft by Kristine of Paperdoll Miniatures.  I love how she did the city scene in the background.

 A kitchen Scene by Irene Mont.  I love the yellow and all of the details.
