2023 WapitiTalk Photo of the Year Contest – Winners!

Postby WapitiTalk1 » 01 10, 2024 •  [Post 1]

It’s time to vote on the WapitiTalk 2023 Photo of the Year Contest. All 2023 monthly winners (March thru December) have automatically been entered. Please take a few minutes to review the photos and vote for your favorite; the monthly theme is listed under each photo. 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 but I have a couple of great options thanks to our awesome sponsors!

Winners!!! Told you I was gonna have a few winners identified this year ;) . The top spot goes to 7mmfan for his September 2023 photo and 2nd place goes to Tigger with his May 2023 photo. 7mm, you get the first pick of the two available prizes. First is a complete Bow Spider setup and the other prize is a variety (4 pack) of Alpine Touch. Let me know so I can get both your goodies in the mail. Thanks to all who entered and voted throughout 2023 and as always thanks to our awesome sponsors for providing the great prizes.

What an honor! Thanks for the votes everyone! Boss I'm a rifle hunter and I know Tigger is a stick flinger so he will get much more use out of that Bow Spider kit than I would. I will happily take that Alpine Touch seasoning kit!

Dang, that was close. I almost won the grand prize. Anyway, it still feels great to be edged out, ever so slightly, by such great photos.

7mms picture has such great colors. I bet you just stood there and took that all in. I bet as great as the picture is, it was better in real life.

As always, I would like to thank my sponsors, Sharpie Pens, Texas Instruments calculators, Costco facial tissues, bananas, and the color red. I couldn't have done it without them!
