We shared with you why we love psychology and you've told us why this subject is so close to your heart too. In our two competitions, you gave us succinct yet insightful answers to the statement: “Why I love Psychology”. In our second, you gave us some predictions about where this fascinating field will take us in the next 50 years and what issues you hope psychology will solve.

We’d like to thank all those who participated in the competitions. We received lots of fascinating and intelligent answers to both questions and enjoyed reading them all. After reading the entries we chose our favourite answers and we’re pleased to announce the following winners:
