Many thanks to all of you who voted in the Readers' Poll for the best articles or programs published in our first year. It was very pleasing to see that every major article or program was voted for by somebody and every contributor can feel proud that his work was appreciated by some of our readers. In all 44 different articles or programs received votes which goes to show what diverse interests there are among Atari owners.

So who won? The most popular program by far was GRAB AN APPLE by Garry Francis and Jamie Athas followed in second place by TINYTEXT by Stan Ockers and Jim Can - with FOUR IN A ROW by Mike Aston a close third. A complete set of Channel 8 Adventures valued at 100 is now winging its way across the world to Garry Francis and Jamie Athas and other prizes have been awarded to the runners up.

Among the many articles you would like to see featured in the magazine are telecommunications, hardware, business software, machine language tutorials, display lists, scrolling, more utilities, player missile graphics and many more. Some of these such as hardware and player missile graphics are featured in this issue but we need YOU to write articles and programs on the other subjects or on any subject that you think might interest other users. Why don't you try for the PAGE 6 AWARDS in 1984? Your article or program could be worth up to 100!

Many thanks to STARCADE who kindly donated prizes of Up, Up & Away and Savage Pond to the runners up.
