I took pictures and posted them - you can see them here:
My entries were the fish fountain with the marzipan shrimp & fritters in the shape of fish, and the sugarpaste platter of goodies (plate, goblet, playing cards, napkin, cinnamon sticks, etc.)

My sense of time is really skewed - I was there last year, but it seems like it was a longer time ago!
I haven't had much success finding any pictures of entries from other years.

It may be worth suggesting an earlier announcement date to the co-ordinator, who originaly posted the announcement on the subtleties list.  I know remember you mentioned you were having trouble getting her email to work for you - I'll try sending her an email about it early next week.
