Ladies and Gentlemen….we have a winner. This was not an easy decision. I honestly, truly feel everyone of the top 5 images were simply outstanding and based on talent were equally good. However, because there is only one camera being given away, tough decisions had to be made. It was extremely close, but of the three methods used the overall winner won in two of them -including the fan voting- this was essentially the tie breaker, so I thank you so much for voting. We had close to 800 voters participate.

While many of you have contacted me and already received your prizes, some of you haven’t. If you have placed in the 1st or 2nd of a category, you need to tell me which prizes you prefer. 🙂 (1st Place winners get MA Lollipops or MA Paintballer Pro, 2nd Place Winners get a DVD). If you prefer none of them, and would like a phone call with me instead that will also work.

Everyone else who has won 3rd, 4th or 5th place please email me with your phone number and best time to call. Evenings are best for me, but if you have specific time or reason we can do it then. I would like to wrap this up within the next week or two (the sooner the better).

And now the moment you have been waiting for…..

The Overall winner of the First Annual Michael Andrew Photography Contest and winner of the Canon Rebel T1i is…….

Congratulations Shannon! Whoo Hooo!

Again thank you to everyone who participated- Im already looking forward to next years contest. We hope to make it bigger and better!
