EDIT: CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE WINNERS

1st Uroplatus ebenaui by Silas Swaim
2nd Lygodactylus willamsi by Thor Håkonsen
3rd Uroplatus fimbriatus by Graham Slade

All winners will have a calendar mailed to them, once we get them printed. Should probably be Oct/Nov



Below are the final picks for the 2012 Geckos Unlimited Calendar. If you do not see your photo here, it's probably because it was either not in perfect focus or it didn't meet the resolution requirements, or it was not really a calendar material.

Once again, just a reminder that for next year's contest, please be sure to shoot photos with the maximum resolution that the camera will allow. Remember, you can always reduce the photos, you can't enlarge them and still have a print quality image.

Job at hand - We have to select 13 photos that will make the calendar.

how to vote?
Take a pencil and write down 13 of your favorite photos, then vote for them! Easy!

RULES:
1. Vote for your favorites. Top 13 pics make the calendar. Top favorite makes the cover

2. Feel free to invite your friends to vote on this contest, however telling them to vote specifically for your photo will get you disqualified. Links to this thread will show up at the bottom, so please no funny stuff.

3. Top 3 get a free calendar shipped to them.

4. In case of a tie, to simplify matters, I will make the final selection.

5. Voting will close in 7 days.

6. You can only vote once. After you press VOTE you cannot change your vote. Please be sure you make 13 selections ONLY

7. Enjoy the eye candy !

I am normally not a fan of leopard geckos but #12 is cracking me up. That gecko is SMILING! Great picture!

Sorry I meant photo #13 it is a bit confusing as the numbers are at the bottom of the photo not the top.

So many awesome photos this year! It would be even harder to choose if so many didn't have so much of the image (specifically the gecko) out of focus. I just can't see an image with a tiny focused face against a fuzzy body and background blown up for a calendar image.

Edit: Bruce, there's an edit button at the bottom of your post box that allows you to change something in your post so you don't have to double post.

The leopard is very cute, but it's all in the angle of the photo because most geckos I've seen you can get the same effect. I have tons of my Cresteds, Tokays, and even Leachianus doing the same in one shot and just a slight angle change makes it look normal.

I understand there is an edit button at the bottom of my post, I didn't feel it necessary to use. I didn't realize you were a moderator. I was also complimenting the smiling gecko, I do not care that it is easily done or that you have done it in the past, it is a great photo and nothing should be taken away from it. I was simply saying that I enjoy that photo.

I'm accustomed to many forums that specifically tell people not to double post and everyone helps inform people. Excuse me for mistaking this as one of those forums.

I've also had people ask how the smiling gecko is accomplished so, again, this was an automatic answer from repitition.

Marty handles all of the sales of this. Please contact him at marty@geckosunlimited.com
Make sure to use a subject line such as "GU calendar sales" so he knows that it's not spam. And please do keep in mind that he is very busy and it may take him several days to respond. Thanks! It's a great calendar and it's worth the effort to get! :biggrin:
