Another Photo Contest is under way. Will you be the person that snaps enough photographs to win 100 dollars?

I posted a few sample photographs in the photo gallery. Any questions about the contest can be answered here. I will also be posting a a tally to show everyone where the contestants rank.

Good luck.

I was wondering about multiple pictures of a single item. Is there a maximum? I could probably find quite a few more quonset huts in my area.......!

We will accept only one photograph submission from a contestant for each item on the list. You may post as many photos as you like but you will only get points for the first one. No points will be awarded for additional photographs/examples of the same category. So if you already have C3, there is no need to post another C3.

This is to curb contestants from taking the easy route. Some things are much easier to find than others. I hope everyone understands.

Hollyburn managed to sneak in quite a few photos in the last 24 hours bringing her the lead spot by only five points. I will be checking all photos once again to make sure the calculations are correct and the double postings were not accidently tabulated.

Thank you to all participants. This was a fun contest. Winners will be contacted shortly.


1) Hollyburn -------- Photos 35 = 105 points / Sprint bonus = 36 / Total = 141
2) TheShiningStars - Photos 37 = 111 points / Sprint bonus = 25 / Total = 136
3) Marmi_and_Tas - Photos 29 = 87 points / Sprint bonus = 8 / Total = 95
4) Disneygirl -------- Photos 24 = 72 points / Sprint bonus = 16 / Total = 88
5) QuigleyJones ---- Photos 19 = 57 points / Sprint bonus = 6 / Total = 63
6) Loungelions ------ Photos 17 = 51 points / Sprint bonus = 8 / Total = 59
7) Jojo88 ----------- Photos 3 = 9 points / Sprint bonus = 4 / Total = 13

I had a really fun time with this photo contest. I drove everyone crazy trying to get shots. My apologies to several wedding parties at QE Park. Special thanks to the man in the restaurant that nicely moved so I could get the PacMan shot, the nice person who just happened to have $40 of Canadian Tire money and QJ for finding me the $2 bill. I'm convinced that firemen don't wash trucks in Vancouver or cable / phone employees don't climb poles. I went weeks into this contest thinking police don't pull over cars. I had so much problem finding a whoopie cushion but finally found one near the end of the contest across the street from the first place I looked. Just lucked in to finding an ouija board last Saturday after almost giving up. Twister rocks! Thanks BCGA.
