Quoting Utrecht

True, but of course it's possible when you vote for your own picture, that you choose 11 others that are in your opinion the worst....or better to say the least good. I mean, they are all good, but there are some that I think will not be chosen that often.
I hope the one of Antarctica (with the plane, sun etc) will be on that calendar...that's really a great photo.

I think that pic will make it into my final 12. Every time I go back and look I end up changing one or two, so can't say for sure yet. There's just so many great ones!

By the way, I think that we don´t know till when is possible to we? So, anyway, what is the deadline for the contest?

Quoting LuisDafos

In my opinion new users, and I only mean absolutely new users, shouldn´t vote. I know of some cases in other sites, of competitions where only one photograph is allowed and finally the first-time-poster personality of a double poster, got finalist and his pic published in a photo gallery...I´d not like to see these kind of things happening again here...should be sad, but this is only my opinion...
At least I´d ask the organization to double check the possibility of irregularities before making a veredict...

I think that having to pick 12 of your favourites will counter-act any people just signing up and then voting anyway. Even if you had a friend sign-up to just vote for you they would have to vote for 11 other pictures anyway, which may have had more votes from others than your own.

Maybe the judges should have a final vote of what wins or not? Considering that one of the not so great photo's might get the most votes and it's quite obvious there are others that are better?

Anyway, it's an awesome opportunity for those who love travel photography to get photo's of theirs out there ... I'll be ordering a calendar whether my photo gets in it or not because there are some really cool shots in there.

Just out of curiosity: until when do all my friends have, to sign up and vote *cough-cough* I mean, until when have all my fellow TP'ers, to cast their votes?

Voting will close at noon GMT on Friday the 8th of September.

Any suspicious behaviour with new members voting for particular photos will not be scrutinised very carefully, so please stick to the spirit of the competition and be honest with your votes.

I wish there were more months in the year because i found choosing 12 really, really difficult. I felt slightly humble after comparing mine to the other photos, although amazingly i did vote for my own!!!!!

I made the mistake of having a second look at the photos today after voting before, and questioned why i hadn't voted for some other photos, but decided to stick with my original choice or i will be hitting TP every few hours to change my vote!!!!!!!!!!!

Good luck to everyone anyway.

Hehe, I'll make an announcement this week. At the moment, I've already contacted all the winners and I just need some final approvals from them before making the announcement.

Congrads to everyone who was selected in the final by the way, some great photo's
