-The Summer & Sapphire Jamaica photo contest edition - 2013! New! - See the Video!
We broke a record! Yes, we received & published a record number of photo contest entries this time!
In the previous contest we received 31 lovely entries, but this time we doubled that + change - all of 79 gems were received.
By Lexine Green from Montego Bay, Jamaica.
The entry: "Get Up, Stand UP". Great Photo.
Weekend for two at the lovely Club Ambiance Hotel - a small, cozy all-inclusive resort on Jamaica's beautiful north coast!
So first, a hearty thanks a lot all our entrants!
Every single one - especially those who took the time to submit more than one entry. No entries would mean no contest - so thank you!
Secondly, and perhaps more significant though is our sponsors.
Not only did they make this a reality and a big success, their ambitious & captivating prizes encouraged more entries - I am pretty sure.
Again I implore all my site visitors to support them, they are more than deserving (click link above), and...
A HUGE thank you too to our esteemed judges!
Judging close to 100 entries is no easy feat. But they scrubbed them- every single one, and not only did they do it willingly, they put their all into it.
Thank You Ladies & Gentleman!
Without any further delay....here they are!

The Entry: "The Simple Life In Black River Jamaica". Adorable.
A night for two (bed & breakfast) at the romantic Country Country Cottage in amazing Negril!

The Entry: "Somewhere In Bog Walk,Jamaica" - lovely insn't it?
Gift Basket containing the best of Jamaica's jerk & barbeque seasonings, sauces, spices & jams from Eaton's Jamaican Jerk Seasonings to the best local entry.

We also happily gifted USD$30 cash courtesy of My-Island-Jamaica.com PLUS 5 handcrafted Jamaica calendars courtesy of Deliana, to the entrant with the most valid entries - Brienne Burd (2nd Place Winner)!
So here they are, the winners, the very best!
Again I beg of you, take a few minutes and peek at them. You'll love them- and the story behind each of them.
To be honest, any of the Top 70 could have easily been in this list. It was really tough for the judges! Better them than me :-)
And by the way, we awarded all the entrants in the Top 15, every one, a complimentary copy of the Jamaica Insider Guide! It's the least we could do for such love and passion.
New! I've just added a youtube video with all these lovely pictures - with Bob Marley in the background! Enjoy!!

And yes, please share this with a friend or another Jamaica enthusiast!
This took tremendous effort on my part, totally income-free and lot's of sacrifice, but it was fun bringing all this to you! Love you all!
