Holy cow I'm a finalist over @ viewbug for photo of the year. Received this mail earlier today
Hi mbernholdt 2014 has been a huge year.
We've already had over 1 million contest submissions in 266 contests!
Congratulations are in order, because at least one of your images was selected as a finalist, or voted into the top 10% for a contest, and is therefore automatically in the running for ViewBug Image of the Year!
We'd love your help choosing our first ever Images of the Year. The process will start with a month-long popular vote which will surface the top 100 images. From there we'll collaborate with a few of our favorite judges to choose our 25 Images of the Year, and crown a single Image of the Year. Help us by voting! Tip the scales in favor of your favorite shots by inviting friends and family to vote!
Lets see how it goes.
