Howdy, folks! Thanks for weighing in. You're right. There are definitely designs missing. But this is on purpose. We simply print too many new designs each year to include them all in the Community Choice derby.

So each year (or at least for the last 3), we use a minimum sales threshold (i.e.- designs that sold more than X) to help winnow the entries down to a more manageable level.

This year, that means of the nearly 3000 new designs we printed, only the 700ish best-selling designs were included.

But that's just for the Derby. EVERY new design is eligible for the T-List as a whole, regardless of its sales performance. Which is why there are some designs which are included in the category nominations, but not in the Community Choice Derby.

Hope that helps. Good luck, and may the votes be with you!
