[HR][/HR]
The rules are simple:
-You must be the photographer
-One entry per month
-Try making it an image from the last year.

Voting:
- Vote for your top 3
- No voting for yourself

And if you are the winner one month ... you're in charge the month after the next. For example ... if you win in January, you're in charge of March. If you win in April, you're in charge of June.
You pick the theme, you count the votes, you announce the new winner.

Second and third most votes = Honorable Mentions

I did briefly think about listing the past themes and past winners ... but then we went out for the evening and the brief thought left.

Thanks for doing that!!

Jdon….I would appreciate it if you would tell kamionkaze if you daughter doesn’t want to pick the January theme !!......thanks….your daughter has a good eye for composing an image!!!!

Just a suggestion, but perhaps since jdon's daughter chose the theme "joy" for December, kaminokaze could pick the theme for January and start the thread??

we wrote about that in the end of the november thread...

from kaminokaze "Lets make it "Water" weather it be Wet or Snow. I think in Jan. we need to include both."

if kaminokaze doesn't post and start it why don't you

A question ... how did we decide to count votes? I know this was discussed in another thread, but I'm not sure what the outcome was.
Is it simply that we vote for anywhere from 1 to 3 people in no particular order, and the person who gets the most votes wins, second most is second place, third most is third place?

Or is it mathematical ... each person votes for first, second, and third place ... then the first place votes are multiplied by 3, the second place votes are multiplied by two, and the third place votes are multiplied by one?

(And of course, we don't vote for ourselves. )

but but but what about fraction votes????????????

isn't your first one the way it's always been done.....or we could also just leave it to whoever is doing that months theme(although that's been iffy to even get a thread posted by the winner)....or we could have the same person (maybe YOU) run the thread each month and have the voting be whatever you want!!!!
