The winner of this contest may choose a gift certificate to one of the companies listed above. This should give the winner a nice choice of where to use their gift certificate. The certificate can not be split up and used at multiple places. If they prefer, overseas winners may choose a $40 Amazon gift certificate.

Your veiled cham wants to be on the home page; don't let her down :)

So are you saying that the photo should be taken so that it can be used as a logo...? As in, would a photo that could not be made into a logo be voted for less than one that could by the judges?

I was just having fun and referring to the photo of the winner on the home page, not the logo. Judges do not consider 'logo worthiness' when ranking photos. However, the qualities that make a good logo can be similar to what judges are looking for.

When I eventually get to completing a custom voting script, I will include this. Until then, I recommend voting on your own photo because other people will be as well.

Its wrong to want to win $40?!

Besides Eric, if you don't vote for your photo, no one will... Just kidding Eric, good luck with that massive chameleon/photo of yours!

(How is the website coming along? Ive lost the link for it.)
 
I've been too busy to really do anything, except add new pics of my little girl: on an Easter egg hunt, picking strawberries, etc.

I know it's not wrong, I just feel kind of strange voting for myself.
