Remember, you are voting for photographs not photographers, please put all bias aside and vote truthfully. Obviously, you cannot vote for yourself.
Remember to vote for both sections in this and the previous post. Closing date for both sections is 2400hrs 28th February 2013.
Note that for month 4, joint winners were declared, hence the postcripts a and b. However, for month 10, because of the huge number of pics posted in the Alternatives section (32), I added that the first two would be put forward for the 'Best Pic' award, But there were joint seconds, so three pics were required from month 10, hence postscripts a, b and c.
I have been informed that for some reason pics A1, A10c and A12 cannot be viewed below in the larger size when 'clicked'. I cannot rectify this at the moment. So, using the archive at the right hand side of the blog, look up the following posts - 4th February 2013 for A12; 3rd December 2012 for 10c; 4th March 2012 for A1. The pics can be enlarged in these posts.
