Voting can now begin for the 'Pic of the Month', October 2012 competition. The voting system is simple - just send me the yellow October code numbers of the three pics you have chosen as 1st, 2nd and 3rd in each section, Winwick and Alternatives (UK and World combined). All October dated pics posted between October 10th and November 4th are eligible and have code numbers. My email address is at the top of the blog. Everyone reading this post is eligible to vote, contributor or not.

NOTE : October has been a huge month for the 'Alternative Pics' section with so many Gala shots covered. With this in mind I will use the top two pictures for 'Pic of the Year', 2012 from the monthly October competition. This means that at the end of the year thirteen pics will qualify for the title rather than twelve.
