Chavs came up with a thought...(thanks)
The Funtrivia Photo of the Year!!
A HUGE event which Leo has agreed to organise.
More later but One photo will be chosen from each month starting Dec 2011 to Dec 2012 by some of our VIPs, then there will be a voting process for the favourite out of all.
A mountainous task, three cheers for Leo. All you have to do is choose your fave out of the 12. Watch this space.

Wow! That WILL be a huge task and one that's going to be very hard to do. I know I'd have a hard time choosing.

Well Leo says we can do it.!
When the 12 are chosen, one for each month, all your job is is to vote for one.

There have been so many photos over the year that it's possible that not everybody will remember who posted what (I know I can't remember :D). Might it be a little fun to NOT have a name associated with the final photos?

12 completely fabulous photos. Don't envy the committee whittling it down to four as each and every one of them deserves to be photo of the year. Congratulations to the 12 finalists, an immense honour to get onto the final list.

I got here late but nice idea Chavs! And big thanks to Leo and Ren for taking on this project. I can imagine the work that is going in, it's hard enough for me to choose my favourite photo of the day most times. smile

It was Ren's idea! She just tried to blame me! wink

That makes a lovely calendar.

How do we vote? And is there a deadline? I will need a deadline otherwise I absolutely will not be able to choose.
