Bill - I have 2 questions for you to consider:

1) What happens if there is a tie of the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place photos?

2) What happens if the same person's photos place more than 1 prize? Since everyone can submit up to 10 photos each, what if a person gets their photos voted as say ... 1st and 3rd places. Do they get both prizes or only the highest prize?

Yep, the Caladium Festival in Lake Placid, Fl http://www.lpfla.com/caladium.htm runs through tomorrow so I'm sure Bill is extremely busy this weekend ... wish we'd thought about driving over there for it but it's almost 3 hours from us ... maybe we'll go next year!

Becky - Sorry for the delay in posting. This week-end was a little hectic to say the least. Tons of fun though!!!
I didn't really think about that either. If there's a tie than both entries will win the designated prize, How's that?...lol...

Thank you, Bill, for answering my question. Glad the festival was fun and a success for you!

My other question ....

What about if the same person places to win more than one prize. (We have some very good photographers here on ATP!) I can actually imagine that happening. Does the person win both prizes or the better prize?

I'll answer that. If you win both first and second place, then you get the first place prize and the third place gets the second place prize. Bill is free to over-rule that, though, since this is his contest. Green Grin!
