It is hard to believe that the Photo Contest 2013 is winding down. It was almost 4 months ago that I starting making the rounds to talk to potential sponsors to see if it could really happen. What I thought of as a dream, the sponsors made a reality and I could not be more thankful to them all. But I am not only thankful to the sponsors, I am thankful to all of you who took the time to submit photos to the contest. It can be a bit nerve racking to put yourself out in the public eye and then hope that people actually submit some pictures! So consider this a big "thank you" hug to all of you who submitted photos as well. I thoroughly enjoyed all the email conversations that were sparked by the simple act of sending in a picture. Reading your stories and being able to see the "story" in picture form was great way to spend a lot of late evening and early morning hours over the past 3 months. I am already looking forward to a photo contest next year and I have a lot of ideas to make it even better...just ask my wife :).
But, let's put all those ideas on hold for a while and turn our attention to the 5 finalists for the Hunting Photo category. Voting starts today and you can find the page to vote on the Menu Bar underneath "Photo Contest 2013". It is titled, "Hunting Photo Online Voting". Or you can also click here:
The format is just like the voting for the trail camera contest. Look through the 5 choices and vote at the bottom of the page for the photo that you like! Voting begins today and it will end on New Years Eve with the winners being announce on New Years Day. Have fun voting everyone and good luck to all those who still have a shot!
