  Again congrats to all the February Finalist and I am sorry I did not include links but have determined that it was just entirely to much work and felt a list was appropriate. As you all can see I am still figuring out the best way to do things that will be fun for you all and myself. I just don't want this to be a dreadful obligation each month since my intentions were to do something nice for others and make it fun at the same time so with that being said, I will continue to make changes for the better over time.

Tammy

I am once again doing things a little different.

I am listing the Grand Prize Winner who will get a BP 25.00 GC and the Grand Prize 1st Runner-up who will get the 10.00 Zinio GC. The Grand Prize Winner and 1st Runner-up will not be able to enter any images into the contest until April. Grand Prize Runner-up 2nd Place through 5th place do not get a prize so this means you will be able to participate in the contest this month.

Congratulations to the top six Grand Prize Winners.

Please E-mail Me @ davinduck2701@aol.com to get your photo award.

  Remember that if you remove your photo during the judging (in the future) that photo will be removed from the contest and if you do not title your photo the entry will not be considered. Please DO NOT UPLOAD ANY PHOTOS FOR MARCH UNTIL YOU GET A BP MESSAGE instructing you to start uploading for March.

Thanks,
Tammy L. Newcomb

  Thanks everyone and I am sure the judges loved picking all the photos this month. I had a total of four judges and two who were consistent from beginning to end.

Just so you all will know: I Tammy Newcomb did not help judge this month.


Usman: I am thrilled that you mentioned the framing. I love the look of the frames but was not sure how everyone else would like it. If you want your award you are gonna have to send me a request.

Tammy

  Thanks you so much everyone for being so supportive...

So how did you all like the why I did the awards this month? I was thinking about keeping the Top six Grand Prize winners and using those frames and then just listing the category winners with the option for you all to request and put together your own badges....

I was thinking about keep the contest set up this way....

So what do you all think about the format this month and the gold frames???

  G'day TAMMY et al,

The competition and awards are going well so if ain't broke, why fix it? 8-)

Have I missed something? I seem to be the only one who puts the month in the title - yeah?!

Sooooorry but the frames are just over the top to me. If you MUST have frames then I strongly feel the simpler the better. After all the focus is supposed to be on the art, NOT the frames. (Justathort!)

Tams, I hope you are getting better kiddo.

GB all.
D!

  Tammy, I'm with Dennis on the frames. They may work with some of the images but I find them distracting on most.
Thanks for all your work.

  Well there is always a solution to each preference... Not all minds think alike and if they did photography sure would be one boring hobby or profession. I will put you two on the NO FRAME list and if there is anyone else that does not like the frames you will need to speak up and you are not hurting my feeling in the least and I have thick skin........LOL. I worked for a Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court in the past and the co-workers were very Serious people so if I can survive that I can survive anything...Hee Hee!!

True Enough most adopt a theory of "If it isn't broke don't fix it" but my rebuttal to that is "fix it before your stranded."......................
