Why did these 3 photos "stand out from the pack"?
There were so many excellent photos it was difficult to choose the winners. Our panel of judges created a shortlist of winning photos based on the Winning Photo Checklist.
  1. Original (not copied)
  2. Includes a Title (short and enticing is better than long and waffling)
  3. Includes a description (this is for more information not included in the title)
  4. Includes tags
  5. Encourages comments

The #1 photo was selected by all of the judges. It also included a location! This helped set it apart from the other winning photos.

We also want to thank all of the members who took time to view, rate and comment on the entries, as well as all of the teachers and learners who helped spread the word about this contest.
