monthly entries in contest


I was thrilled to be selected as a finalist in February (my goat for 2004!). Someone asked me how many entries total. Does anyone have any idea?
Thanks.
Vicki

  According to the e-mail BP sent me...there were 11,857 entries, of which 572 made the Finals.

Congrats!, ...and good luck in March!

Vicki Tillard   Bob, thanks so much for the info. I just re-read my question, and you all must be saying "what the hell is she talking about?"...oops. I mean my GOAL for 2004...
Thanks again.
Vicki

  You're quite welcome!...And thanks for the explanation...(I was afraid you were giving up photography to raise livestock.) ;-)

John Wright   And here I was about to go looking for a lovely goat photo (I've seen lovely goat photos before, but I was sure yours was going to be really good). 8-)

Given Bob's numbers above, that would mean about 409 photos entered into the contest per day (given this year was a leap year), 17 new photos per hour (every hour), and about a 5% chance of being selected as a finalist...

Good job for being selected Vicki... congrats!
