Comments on the competition
First time here and I've really enjoyed reading the clues. Struggled to limit myself to 15 points and gave out quite a few merits for other clues I enjoyed.

There were a lot of apple pie (or similar) clues – only the best (10 imho) got any points.

Quite a few VOTER* + [URN] (provided in some guise) made for topical clues, giving what's going on the other side of the pond. I particularly enjoyed 36's construction, plus the neat definition for the two-page newspaper article, so that got the most points from me.

I also enjoyed 5 for its less common take, and that shared top spot in my book.

19 was a decent stab at what our old friend D St.P. Barnard would have called a parabolic clue, and I think it works – definitely a couple of points for total originality!
