The Challenge 2 topic: *Pastry, Cakes and Sweetmeats*, is open for 
voting now. Remember the voting rules and make your selection.

The topic "Pastry, Cakes and Sweetmeats" is the first instalment of a 
new – experimental – series of challenges to be run under the Challenge 
2 heading. This new series will consist of four successive instalments 
in total. The first three, disclosed one at a time, will be considered 
independent from each other. However, members will be encouraged to use 
elements from  the preceding instalment(s) as the Challenges progress. 
Somehow, the three first instalments will have to be part of a whole 
which will be disclosed with the fourth instalment.

The fourth instalment shall have to include and combine 
elements/reminders/hints from all previous instalments into one, 
encompassing, work within the given topic for the instalment. Failing to 
do so will cost voting points for the fourth instalment.

There is no obligation for the members to participate in all the 
instalments of a series but even so they have to follow the rules above.

A special case concerns the participation of the administrators 
themselves. They can freely participate and be judged by other members, 
however they are excluded from the final ranking of the instalments as 
they already know the four topics from the start.

As far as the rating  is concerned, voting for “Artistic” and “Topic” 
will be similar to what you are used to. The third category “Technical” 
will have a different meaning: it will rate the manner in which the 
artist has been able to meld successfully the elements from different 
instalments as the series progresses. The term “Technical” is under 
scrutiny at this moment and will be replaced by something more 
appropriate. Suggestions are welcome of course.

The second instalment will have the following topic: "The Sinking of the 
Titanic and Great Sea Disasters". This will run from June 1st, 2016 
until July 14th, 2016. Voting for this instalment will start on July 
15th, 2016.
