Last month I asked for your best pictures from Africa or displays of African culture from around the world to help me plan my first trip there. The entries submitted for the Inspire Me Africa Photo Contest posted over the last 2 weeks were all inspiring and you’re going to help me decide the winners.
Entry# 4 Entry #5 Entry #6 Entry #7
Vote for your favorite three (3) Inspire Me Africa Photo Contest entries to determine the prize winners and ultimately help me decide where in Africa I’ll visit first. You may vote once per day until the contest ends December 16, 2008.
Those of you voting can win the 4th prize, a DVD of Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman’s motorcycle tour of Africa, Long Way Down by subscribing to my RSS feed, the foXnoMad Facebook page, or signing up for daily email updates. I’ll select one of you at random to win the DVD and a Sandisk 1 GB SD card.
New to foXnoMad ? Learn more about me and read some of my best posts to get a feel for the site. Thanks for visitng and voting!
The photos are not in sequence as in poll options ? For example the donkey tour is last entry but shown in as third option ?
So, not voting now but will come again to vote.
I’ve fixed that so now the poll options are in the correct order. Thanks for pointing that out!
It’s been 24 hours since voting and it’s still not unlocked…any reason?
I just checked and it looks like you should be able to vote. Please let me know if you continue to have problems.
I’m still not able to vote and it has been more than 24 hrs…
You should be able to vote, I don’t see any problems on this end. Please let me know if you can’t vote sometime today.
hmmmm…i’m surprised by the results so far – be interesting to see which one wins.
Predicting how these contests and the voting will go is tough, and the only trend I’ve noticed is that getting votes early helps create momentum.
A late start can be difficult to recover from, but there is still a week’s worth of voting to support your favorites!
Right now I’m watching the contest between #1 and #2 and seeing if either Stina or Mara can overtake Deniz. It should be interesting up until the very end!!
Some nice photos but no iconic animal photos of Africa like lions, cheetahs or gorillas. Unless you count donkeys I guess!!
@ Mark H:
The donkey isn’t as glamorous as the other animals you mention but an integral part of the east African landscape!
There is an interesting history between the donkey and Ethiopia especially, check it out sometime (sorry I don’t have any links to send you on it, but Google is your friend 🙂
Dude, how would you know who has subscribed to your feeds (I’m shamelessly interested in the 4th prize here…LOL)
Voted ! 🙂
I’m planning on sending out a ‘feed only’ post with details on letting me know that you’re subscribed (like just send an email with ‘X’ in the subject). It’s the easiest way although it requires a moment for RSS subscribers – good luck btw 🙂
Thanks for your suggestion earlier, I think it made the poll much easier to read and follow. Glad you were able to vote this time!
I think you should add 7 votes from me to entry #4 due to the site not allowing me to vote once per day. =)
Try it again and let me know if you’re still having errors.
The poll on the home page isn’t working. 🙁
What’s the problem you’re experiencing?
Thanks for the heads up. Turns out the code wasn’t working quite right with Internet Explorer (which I don’t use).
I’ll try to fix it and get it running later today. Until then all the voting will have to be done from this page.
@ Mark H:
I just read this article from the BBC and thought I’d post the link for you:
…perhaps iconic after all!
