As described in the previous post, the final qualifying June-dated pics are included today, 5th July 2013. Also as described, because I was inundated with such pics not all of them have been shown, but everyone has been represented.
In the 'Pic of the Year' competitions last year, when the Winwick and Alternative monthly sections were large (25 entries or more), the winners and second placed pics from each month went forward for the 'Best' awards at the end of the year. This procedure will be repeated in 2013. To the present date the following monthly sections comprised 25 entries or more - Feb (A), April (A), May (W) and (A), June (W) and (A). Only the winning entry will go forward from the other sections.
