I just found out, like last year, I'm a finalist in this past years Backroads (travel) photo contest. There are 30 finalists, and like last year, I have two of the! Out of 10000 submissions!

Last year, DPCers helped propel me to the top! I was second place, and won a $2000 credit towards my next backroads trip. We went to the Canadian Rockies, on a multisport trip, bike, hike, raft.

What a beautiful place!

Please help me do it again!!!!!! Maybe even first place! (That's a $3000 credit!)

My two photos are the third row from the bottom in the finalist list, since it's alphabetical. Damn "S" in Shapiro!

Once again, I had to pick which one to vote for.

I like both photos of course, but DPCers gave the Athabasca Glacier one a yellow ribbon, so I we're going to go with that one! (It was on DPC titled, "Land of the Giants")


I can't link you directly to the photo...but here's what it looks like on the site:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/10000-14999/12253/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1175473.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/10000-14999/12253/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1175473.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

We have until February 12 (maybe 13) to vote. Winners announced on the 14th, like last year.

Per the rules, there's one vote per email address...so if you have multiple email addresses, you can vote more than once!

IMPORTANT NOTE (Thanks Bear): Once you vote, you will get an email from them--you need to click on that link to confirm your vote!!! Otherwise, it doesn't count!

Please post here after you vote...it helps to see that I'm making progress. It's going to be a long 10 days!

Thanks!!!!!! Thanks!!!!!! Thanks!!!!!!

Done! It's worth noting they require your name and e-mail addy, then send you a mail to confirm your vote, which you have to click.

Voted three times - got two email confirmations so far. Good luck. It's really good to know this is not a scam, that you won before, and that you were able to use and enjoy the prize. Happy to have been a part of that - and hope to be again :).

They announce on the 14th. I am guessing the 12th is the last day, but the 13th may count.

Fingers crossed!

A fringe benefit of DPC -- lots of friends!!!!

Thanks to all so far...hopefully, we can do as well as last year, and maybe better (first place sounds good!)

Managed to get my ancient setup to record a vote -- I'll try to get to some other email addresses later ... that other picture is pretty nice too. :-)

I see these guys do a cycle tour of the South Island of New Zealand. I traveled their route last year & found myself stopping every 500 meters or so to take more photos

Ok, we are in the homestretch. Voting ends on Sunday and the winners will be announced Monday or Tuesday.

Thanks again for everyone's help, whatever happens!

(And if you haven't voted yet, you have just two more days!)

I'll post info about the winners here, either way...but I have all my fingers crossed right now.
