Vote for August - Lend a Helping Paw

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Thank you for all of the wonderful entries for the August Photo Contest - Lend a Helping Paw! Congratulations to our finalists, as determined by our site team. To make it fair, we did institute a rule that we could not vote for our own pictures. We were each allowed to vote for 10 photos, and these constitute the ones that 1/2 of us voted for. (I want to make this as transparent as possible so everyone knows this is a fair process.)

This poll will be open for 1 week. Each member can vote for one of our finalists, and you can vote for your own photo if you want to. You did not have to enter a photo to be able to vote. The top photos will be featured in a 2009 Calendar that will be offered for sale through Cafe Press at the TCS Store. An example of what the calendar may look like is here: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v9.../Example-1.jpg Please note I used the first 3 photos in alphabetical order, it is not refective of the team vote or my own personal views.

The top 3 will receive points (1st: 5000 points, 2nd: 2500 points, 3rd: 1000 points) and a custom signature showing the whole site that they have Mr./Ms. August on TCS! And, of course, bragging rights. The winner will also have a 2009 TCS Calendar that will go on sale later this year sent to them!

The photos will appear in the next post, in alphabetical order.

My poor kittens will be so disappointed that they failed to make it to the finals for 4 months straight. Maybe the 5th time will be the charm? lol

Question though, the picture I entered of Teddy and the mouse is pretty funny. Are you allowed to enter the same picture for different months? Although if it wasn't good enough for August, it probably won't be good enough for September either.

Yes, you can enter the same picture for different months. Kim entered the adorable picture of Dante and Dennis a few times before it made the finals and was ultimately voted in. One thing that might help is entering the full sized picture.

Don't feel too bad about not making the finals. I've entered what I thought were good pictures every month and have only made the finals once! (So you know it's not about popularity with the mods. )

Awww poor kittens! Don't feel bad though. I thought Maxx helping me pack and move was hilarious! But there are just so much cuteness out there. And for me, I think it's all in the eye of the beholder (Me).

I'll have to try harder the next time. Maybe I can tempt you more with the September photo.

Another tough choice to make, but those "kitty lifeguards" just cracked me up!

Congrats to everyone who made the finals!

It was such a hard decision - I finally based my decision on 'been there done that'

Good luck everyone!

Congratulations to all of the finalist - this one was really the hardest one to narrow down so far, and the hardest (for me anyway) to choose only one to vote for!

Big congratulations to our top three helpful kitties!

1st Place - zooeysmom's Belle
2nd Place - FatCat97's Kitty Lifegards
3rd Place -GoldyCat's Miss Patchwillow

You'll be getting your award points from Contest Kitty shortly, and your signatures will be posted in this thread.

They were all very good, though, congrats to the winners!

Well, she's jumping up and down on the inside.

LOL...it was that obvious, eh? Normally it wouldn't take treats to get her to speak (she never shuts up!), but she generally refuses to stand still or look up when the camera is out.
