25 entries down to 12…

I’ve narrowed down the HP HDX Dragon contest entries down to my favorite 12…


I want to say again how difficult it is to pick 1 winner out of 371 entries. I’m getting emails from people asking me to explain to them why I didn’t pick their entries. I’m sorry, but I’m not going to answer these emails because no matter what I tell them they still won’t be happy that they didn’t get picked.

    I’m sure everyone feels that their entry was good. I know I do. Bottom line is it is her contest she can run it anyway she pleases.

    Good luck to the other contestants

    hmmm…… u mayb right , but whn i read the rules i thought the main objective was to make it visible to los of ppl …. no offence but many of these pic are taken far off in the woods or sumthing whr not many could see the banner.

    anyway as u said , her contest so her choice.

    best of luck to the remaining contestants.

    might as well get some sleep now was awake all night awaiting the results :p

    Let the choir sing, when you call my name it’s like a little prayer…..

    The rules also state that it’s Julie’s discretion who wins. If it were purely about numbers then the finalists would likely be different, but its impossible to verify how many people actually saw the advertisements.
    As a result, Julie has to rely on her own judgment to determine a winner.

    shipwreckshipwreckshipwreck – most clever, imo
