Iris Greenwell June 04, 2009

Thank you Very Much. Nancy and Lorna ...What is EFP? #7596089

Lorna Shutter June 04, 2009

LOL! I picked up that term from Nancyj! An EP is an "Editors Pick" ... so I think an EFP is the "Editors First Pick" ... before the Finalist and Grand Prize Awards. Correct me if I'm wrong, Nancyj. :) #7596120
