Updates

Hi and salam to all,
.
Before we reveal all the entries for the December 2008 NAC (Guest Challenger: Alessandro Pocaterra) - within the next 24 hours - we would like to give an update on a few matters.
.
1) There has been a sudden surge of interest in ambigrams and ambigram designing, not surprisingly, after the screening of Dan Brown's Angels & Demons on the big screens. With it, we have noticed many new webpages and blogs dedicated to this art.
.
So, if you do have your own blog dedicated to ambigrams, or you know of someone who does, do email us at: nagfa_ambigram@hotmail.com so that we could include your ambigram gallery in our AmbigramMates link.
.
On the same note, if you have changed your website and your link doesn't work on our blog, please do let us know. Thank you.
.
2) We have come to a point in our lives when we couldn't put aside as much time as we would have liked to in maintaining this blog. It had been some 5 years since we started doodling our first ambigrams - and 3 years since we've started this blog - and it would be sad to see lesser ambigram challenges where ambigram enthusiasts could participate and share their artistry among like-minded artists from around the globe.
.
It is, therefore, with a heavy-heart and sadness, we would like to inform that we would like to step back from organizing the nagfa ambigram challenge (NAC). Having said these, we hope that there could yet be a similar challenge-invitational which could be a focal for the worldwide ambigram community.
.
We have seen some successful ambigram contest/challenges among smaller groups - the Flickr ambigram groups, the Latin Ambigramas, etc. - so we know we have still an abundance of worthy successors.
.
So, if you do intend to have any forms of ambigram challenges/invitational, we would be honoured to help spread the word. Please email us at: nagfa_ambigram@hotmail.com and we'll put a link to your ambigram contests.
.
From time to time, when we have erred in our hosting / blogging / commenting on this blog, we would like to apologize again. We'll be around, maybe even posting an ambigram or two once in a while, so do come by a-visiting.
.
Thank you,
Salam and take care,
nagfa: naguib & fadilah (& baby nayla)
