It was a year ago this month that we began having photo contests. It was a first for PF, and a first for me, so it was learning process of trial and error. These were very popular in the first several months, then afterwards waxed and waned in the number of entries.

I thought it would be nice to close out the year with the winning photo(s) of each month in 2018. Each month has a link where you can see all the entries by all the contestants. It's worth a look, as there are some incredible entries that may not have won in that month, and are very enjoyable to look at if you like poodle pics.

It's been lovely for me to add a little extra sparkle and fun to PF and to make others happy thru photography with their poodle and seeing how others take camera shots or videos.

You can also read thru my thread, Easy Photo Editing & Tips to Win Photo Contests (link) and feel free to add your own tips.
To turn your photos into artsy screensavers like the ones I make for gift awards, you might also like the free LunaPic site.

I look forward to continuing in 2019. If you have comments or questions, please don't hesitate to do so on this thread or to PM me.

Wishing you all a safe and peaceful year,

Vita

Here they are:

JANUARY 2018 WINNERS

In this first photo contest, we had over 50 entries. I was dismayed that I had to do two polls b/c at the time, PF was configured to have a maximum of 50. A lot of voters did not realize there was 2nd poll, which was also a problem. Afterwards I convinced the PF Admin to re-configure the Poll to expand these.

What I also learned was to bunch up photos from each contestant so they'd be voted on as a block rather than individually, otherwise a contestant would be competing against themselves. Had I done this, there probably would have been only 40 entries instead of 54.

You can see all of the photos here and here.
