What is the People’s Choice?

How do I vote for People’s Choice?
In order to vote you need to provide a valid email address, and only one vote per email address is possible. If after voting the first time, you decide to vote for another image, the first image you voted for will lose that vote. You will see a message reading “Thanks for voting!” and the entry will be highlighted by a BLUE BOX after your vote has been cast.

How many times can I vote?
One vote per person. We ask that all voters be fair about placing their votes and remember that we track via email address and other information for the final vote scores after the contest deadline.
