I found it tougher than the previous two contests :|
Hope I can cover up in the next one.

I love that these contests stay posted online so those new to the genre can partake -- like I'm doing now 6 1/2 years later. That said, it sure seems to me like TVC3 puzzle 8 (Cubic Tapa) has multiple solutions. If the 3/3 clue open spaces are horizontal, then there's one solution. And, if the 3/3 clue open spaces are vertical, there are 5 more solutions. I'm often wrong, but quadruple checking makes me think this is a case of non-uniqueness. Anyone agree or disagree with me? Will anyone even see this since I'm posting it so much after the fact?
