Whew! They’re all finally posted!! The turnout for our photo contest has been phenomenal, far exceeding our expectations. With over 100 photos in the final four days before the entry deadline, a total of 451 photos have been entered by 57 people from 15 different countries – to include several from Afghanistan. Entrants have included military personnel, civilians working for ISAF, journalists, Afghan citizens and others. The totals for each category:
- People of Afghanistan: 182 entries
- Beautiful Afghanistan: 90 entries
- ANSF in Action: 75 entries
- ISAF in Action: 104 entries
Now it’s up to YOU, the public, to determine our winners! The top publicly rated photo will win a compact camera, and a panel from our HQs will determine the overall grand prize winner from a finalist pool consisting of the top 3 in each category. Our photos have already been viewed in 119 of the world’s countries, and we hope to make it more!
To vote, you can select any of the options along the right: vote by category, or rate random photos, or you can enter search terms to find photos by contestants you may know. Thanks for all your help and support to our contestants – and great job by all of them!
