We are late this year! There were so many photos that we did not scan them but looked for a jury living nearby so that we could present them all photos in original prints.
The title is "Snuffs-White", the photo was taken by Peter von Döllen during our holdiay 2006 in Denmark.
Meanwhile the calendars are printed and can be ordered. The last results we got in July 2006 and in sunny weather we sat in our garden and saw the 'birth' of a new calendar. Afterwards we changed the design a bit, you will now have even bigger photos. Very soon we had a leading photo, but the second placed followed and it was very thrilling to follow the votings. Even place 3 and 4 stayed nearby and got points from nearly every voting. Maybe the summer was too hot ... even though we had lots of snow photos, the jury preferred all others, so that we only have one "real" snow photo and 2 with a little bit snow in the calendar.
As usual, we have an internet competition for the photos placed 13-24. You are welcome to look at these photos and to choose your personal winner. The winner will get a free calendar and from the votings we will choose a winner who gets a free calendar. You will see that the photos are still very, very high quality.
Here are the winners:
This is the winner photo for the calendar 2007:
It shows Aylinn-Tara of Atlin Mountain Blizzards. Her owner, Manu Keggenhoff aus Grevenstein, convinced the jury with 2 photos and some more in the internet competition. 128 points were enough for the this years win.
Place 2 is "Kim", owner and photo Kerstin Büker from Beuchte with 119 points. A wonderful portrait. "Kim" is already presented in the calendar 2006.
