Wow. You guys have truly blown me away.
I knew this contest would be a lot of fun, but after going through over 1000 (!!!!) photos of your Laurels, I am just floored by your creativity, humor, and talent.
My only regret is that I can’t recognize all of the entries here. There were so many amazing creations that I just had to keep whittling and whittling my choices down. I know the other judges felt the same way; they all said how incredibly difficult this was! I seriously urge you guys to check out everything in the Flickr pool right now.
But here are the twenty we finally chose for you to vote on. Each will have a link to the entry on Flickr, if you’d like to see more or read their description.
Choose 5 favorites
We are going to use instant runoff voting to choose the winners, which will both make this more fair and allow you to choose more than one favorite.
- Take a look at the entries below.
- Choose five favorites.
- Click the link for the voting form and rank your top five, in order of preference (first should be your most favorite, second is your second most favorite, etc).
We’ll then use the instant runoff method to tally the votes.
The winners of this Readers Choice category will be announced on Monday, along with the winners chosen by our judges for the other categories. Please vote by midnight Pacific on May 17.
