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.

First Place Winner

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!
