Vote for December- Deck the Halls with Sparkle Balls and Catnip!

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Thank you for all of the wonderful entries for the December Photo Contest - Deck the Halls with Sparkle Balls and Catnip! 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 reflective 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. March 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.

I think it's appropriate that the hardest choice is the last contest of the year! These photos keep getting better and better, and I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with next year!!

I also want to take a moment to thank every single person who entered a photo this year. They were all simply amazing and working on the calendar shows me what amazing cats and photographers we have on this site! It's been a blast looking at all of the pictures, and excruciating trying to decide on the finalists and even harder to pick only one for the winner. I expect next years' contests will be even more of the same - amazing!!

Ok, now this one is really unfair!

I'll have to take a couple of days to think about it. They're all winners in my book.

I must say this is SOOOO HARD! But I love seeing pictures of Reilly so it goes without saying that I chose him! But all the pictures are so cute! There should be a collage of all the pictures for this month!

I so totally can't decide.

I WAS going to do a 365 cats calendar for my Secret Santa. It's not going as quickly as I want. :o(

I was stuck between Sabina and Ernesto. In the end I went for Cranky the Elf as I can't look at that picture without laughing
Sophie looks so beautiful with her lopsided hat!

If my Levi wen't there, I don't think I could have picked. They are all so good! I think this one has by far the best entries.

Of coarse, I love my Levi & could never vote for anyone else!

By the way my cats aren't spoiled are they? (those are all sparkle balls they had before, I just had to go hunting under the fridge)

They are all SO CUTE!!!

Oooh! This is really hard. Since my kitty didn't make the finals this time I have to make a choice. I think I've got it narrowed down to just three or four.

This is a really hard bunch to choose from!! They are all sooo good!
post #14 of 26
That was another tough decision in which I wanted to be able to vote for my top THREE! This calendar is going to be incredible!

Yes it is! The polls close in a few hours, and apparently every vote counts!

Less than an hour now! I knew this would be a tight race, but I didn't know it would be this tight!

Congratulations to our winners!!

1st Place - Sabina a.k.a. Cranky the Elf by clixpix

2nd Place - Ernesto by mimosa

3rd Place (by one single vote!) - Shatner and his snowman by LotsO'Cats

I was pulling for Levi with all the sparkle balls, with the name of the contest and all. OK, I was actually pulling for a nine-way-tie so all of the pictures would get in! I was terribly indecisive with this month!!
