Vote! 2021 WT Photo of the Year Contest-WINNER!

Postby WapitiTalk1 » 01 24, 2022 •  [Post 1]

It’s time to vote on the WapitiTalk 2021 Photo of the Year Contest. All 2021 monthly winners have automatically been entered. Please take a few minutes to review the photos and vote for your favorite. There are two threads with images to vote on; only vote for one photo (I had to create two threads to get all the contestant images listed). Below were the rules for the monthly submissions.

1. One photo submission allowed per month, per member (yep, MODs may enter a photo also).
2. Photo must relate to the monthly theme (or risk being disqualified).
3. Do not use photo editing software to enhance your photo. Just post the photo as it was taken with your camera, smart phone, trail cam, etc. You may have to resize some photos so they are accepted by the forum software.
4. You may use older photos you have on hand, but, do not submit a photo that has won a previous WT photo contest.
5. Any WT member may enter a photo they have taken or star in.
6. Judging – WT members will vote on monthly photo submissions.
7. Contest period will normally end the last day of the month.
8. Winner must contact WapitiTalk1 via PM and provide mailing address for prize (your prize may be sent directly from a WT sponsor or from RJ).
9. Prizes will vary from month to month.

The prize for the Photo of the Year is to be determined ;)

That was quite a few years ago too. She's an old girl now, coming on 13 in a couple weeks. She enjoys hobbling around the house and laying by the fire. No more climbing mountains for her.

My last black lab made it to 14.5, she was a good one. I now have a 2 year old black male and a 1 year old white lab. Love my labs, way more than people!

Lets keep it going guys! I need to do some recruiting if I'm going to solidify this lead. I'm sure I can find some ready and willing voters at the local morgue.

Swede, have you voted yet? No complaining if you haven't cast your vote to let your voice be heard!

My oh my. What an HONOR! Thank you everyone, although, i really had little to do with it, other than taking the photo. All the credit really needs to go Chloe dog, who is currently laying in a sunny spot on the living room floor.

Rats! I don't think I remembered to vote. Oh well, 7mm was the clear winner with an excellent entry. Congratulations. I will probably win next time. Well maybe i will.

I actually really liked your picture Swede. SIde note, I also did not vote. I like to wait until closer to the end to see if there is a clear winner or not. I usually do not vote for myself... usually.
