It was hard, can I tell you?
Very hard to:

  • Narrow the entries to 10 based on the judges cards' (even though I had some favorites there) &
  • Reduce it even further to only the top 4... yikes!

But we had to do it! So I'll give you a peek into some of the top rated entries.

Our Esteemed Judges
Thanks for their willingness to assist in this exciting initiative.

They selected the TEN best based on originality, presentation (writing) and of course passion.

Winner Selection

  1. Our judges selected the TOP 10.
  2. These entries were posted on our Facebook fan page with their own link.
  3. Each entrant was encouraged to get their friends & family to vote for them by simply "liking" their entry.
  4. The entry with the most 'Likes' wins!
  5. That's it!

SPECIAL MENTIONS

If you'd oblige me, I'd like to mention a few entries that certainly captured my attention, for different reasons.

  1. Picturesque Fishing Boat at Treasure Beach
  2. Beach Link-Up 2016 - Youths For Christ
  3. Dusk Near Bull Head Mountain
  4. Inspiration for the lost
  5. Rose Hall Great House - My Scariest Adventure &
  6. One Love in Port Maria
