Again, we would like to thank everyone who took part in the contest. The holiday photos from all over the world were very interesting and we bet they contributed to the holiday spirit of all of our visitors.
A month ago, when we announced our Holiday Photo Contest, we had no idea that it will be this hard to select the winners. We expected that some of the photos will really shine and we will have no problems choosing which photo to award. Well, it turned out that none of the photos has the WOW factor we were looking for. So we had to make a jury of 7 members to pinpoint the greatest of those pictures. As the contest closed doors the jury went to work. All the time spent in sifting through the photos wasn't in vain. We are now able to disclose the winning tickets that we bet you are more than eager to see.
To our greatest disappointment none of the entries we received really deserves the first prize. So in fact there isn't going to be a first place winner. Make no mistake; we are not trying to spare our money or anything. We just never received that one-time shot we were so eagerly waiting for. So instead of giving one first prize, we decided to give out several Runner-ups awards. Read on for more information.
Michael Phang from Coquitlam, Canada for "Christmas Dreaming".

Nazer Uniral from Auckland, New Zealand for "Yvanna and friends..."
Yes, there wasn't a photo, which deserves the first place, but there were many photos, deserving some kind of award. This is why we decided to select four Runners-up, which will be awarded $100. Here is the list in no particular order.
Tam Dao from Noosaville, Queensland, Australia for "Decorations"
Yap Hon Lim from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for "Christmas tree with masks"
Matthew Mifsud from Luqa, Malta for "Making 'Spirits' High"
Jimmy Dumplink from Fresno, United States for "Jingle All The Way"
