Congratulations to everyone whose photos made it into Round 2! We had over 13,000 votes cast in Round 1, with some very close competitions. With some, the winner was decided by as few as 4 votes, so now is the time to go vote for your favorites so they can move on to the next round.

Everyone who voted in Round 1 (and entered their name at the bottom of the ballot) was entered to win prizes too! And the winner for the Round 1 voters is… Carol Valentine!  Congratulation, you have won a $10 gift certificate to All Creatures Art! Check your email for details.

Now, if you aren’t Carol Valentine, we still have good news for you… you get another chance to win as a Round 2 voter!!! And this time you will be entered for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to Focus West Gallery and Framing. So, what are you waiting for? Go vote for your favorites! Be sure to vote in all 4 categories (people, places, animals, and close-ups), there are some fantastic photos in all of them!

Voting in Round 2 is open from now until Sunday, December 2, 2012 at 11:59pm (EST).
