First, I want to thank each and every person who entered their photo for January's theme
I know it was difficult to come up with subject matter, especially this time of year, when many of us are buried in snow.
But, it was SO worth it!
Everyone who entered had such imagination and took such a neat approach to the challenge.
So, without further ado.....
Here are the
NINE ELEVEN entries that were received and who are in the running for winning.
Each photo will be shown, followed by the name of who entered them.
You can make comments, but I am going to pick three random, independent judges and contact them by e-mail to pick their favorite one of the nine entries.
If they pick three separate ones, then a fourth judge will be contacted to pick their favorite of the top three chosen by the first set of judges.
I will contact the winner before Feb. 15th via email, and then next day, I will announce it on my blog.
Can you STAND the excitement?
The winner will receive a widget to display on their blog as the winner of January's photography contest and they will remain in the pool of photos to also compete in the entire year's contest to be held at the end of the year, too.
After you look at the magnificent entries (below), go all the way to the end of this post...because I am also announcing FEBRUARY's photo contest theme today too!
HERE WE GO!!!>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

This one is from Jientje. She has two blogs. One is named Heaven in Belgium. The other one is named Heaven in 365.
There....now I have corrected the contest!
ELEVEN total, marvelous, awesome entries.
I will submit them to my judges over the rest of this week and have them choose a winner!
Aren't they ALL wonderful, creative, gorgeous and stunning?
I thought you would think so too.
Such creative people in the blogging world!
I heart them all.
And NOW? February's photo contest's theme???
What does THAT mean? (you ask).
It means you can take closeup shots of any thing alive that is not human. Snakes, dogs, cats, gerbils, pet bugs, minks, horses, anything alive that is not human, and not your children or grandchildren. Hopefully, it has a face.
Can't wait to see what comes in!
You must have your photo emailed to me following the rules listed before (LISTED HERE) and LISTED HERE TOO...no later than Feb. 28th, 2010 at midnight, EST. This month's winner WILL BE eligible, since we don't know who it is yet. So any of the above contestants can resubmit a photo to be in the running for February too.
Good luck everybody!
If they are half as good as January's entries, we are all in for a great treat!
