Winners FAQ

  1. Q: My photo shows in Top Voted as the Category Leader, did I win a prize?
    A: No, there was one overall Most Popular photo winner for this contest which was awarded to the photo who received the highest ranking based on the popular votes.
     
  2. Q: My picture was selected as a winner. When can I expect my prize?
    A: Prizes will be mailed out to the winners at the address provided on their affidavit no later than Monday, October 29, 2012.
     
  3. Q: Why is there a winner not yet listed?
    A: The winners are required to complete and have notarized an affidavit to determine eligibility. In some cases, the affidavit was not returned or the individual did not meet eligibility requirements. If a winner is not yet listed it is because a newly appointed winner still has time to return their affidavit to determine eligibility. The winner will be announced for that category/placement once the affidavit has been returned.
     
  4. Q: I didn't win. When will you have another contest so I can try again?
    A: Labors of Love 2012 was our inaugural photography contest and we are looking forward to doing more in 2013!
