Here we have the final results of the REF Contest 2010.
Thanks for participation in the REF Contest 2010, in our single-country event, which still gathers a lot of interest.

We had a fantastic turnout for the 2010 event. A total of 1515 logs were processed which sets a new record for participation in the contest. The increased participation is very encouraging, especially considering that conditions were not much better than those experienced in 2009.

Congratulations to all the winners and thank you to everyone who participated in the 2010 REF Contest.
