Cool The Festive Fotos competition short list!

Here are the top-twelve Festive Fotos entries, as voted by FTU forum members. The list is in no particular order:

Each entrant will be contacted to provide a file of their photograph that will be printed and the twelve prints will be judged by our celebrity judge, photographer David Bailey!

Good luck everyone!

Ian

Wow, what a selection! How's Bailey going to pick a winner from that lot? At least it might put a smile on his face!

BTW, I seem to get the same image when I click on Crowd Pleaser and Medieval Fantasy....

Terrific selection of images, Ian & FTU members.

Good luck to the "talented twelve"...and to David Bailey! He certainly has his work cut out for him.

Wow really? I can't believe I got in against all these other great photos!

This is a first time I've had a photo accepted into a contest =)

Re: The Festive Fotos competition short list!

One of the finalists has only just responded to the request for a full resolution image to be printed for judging. But the ball is now moving and we should have a winner soon.

Re: The Festive Fotos competition short list!

I agree--this seems excessive. It's made the competition feel like a bit of an embarrassment to me. Maybe in future competitions we can have some firm deadlines and timetables? That way, everyone would know what to expect, and entrants who do not comply can be disqualified so everyone else isn't left hanging. I hate to sound harsh, but it hasn't bee fair to most of the entrants (and interested observers!) to hold everything up because of one or two people.
