A big thank you to all who participated and voted in the contest! There were many great photos and choosing just three of them to vote for was challenging!

Is there any way to see more of the rankings of the contest? I'd love to see where I placed!
Me too!
I believe rankings have not been available in the past, as people could potentially get discouraged by where they placed. I may be mistaken about this though.


Regardless, congratulations to the winners! There were a lot of really good photos in this contest. :)

Congratulations to the winners!
I understand not giving out total votes for everyone, but I am curious as to how many total votes were cast.

That is correct. We only announce the top 3 finishers and don't reveal the rest of the results to save from any hurt feelings or discouragement.

There were 89 total votes cast by 38 different forum members.

I really enjoyed all of the photos! I would like to do another contest later this summer, probably in September. It had been far too long since the last one!!!

An autumn photo contest allows for excellent coloration on many CPs that may not display the same colors summer.

We definitely appreciate your willingness to do this, Matt, as well as your willingness to donate those "top shelf" cultivars!
