Remember the photo contest that AR sponsored back in April with RealEstate.com to select a powerful real estate photo to use on RealEstate.com's landing search page? The voting ended May 9th. As far as I know the results were never published.
AR requested entries and received a large quantity - I submitted several myself. Then AR culled the entries to 9 and asked the public to vote - but the voting service they used made you vote for 3 entries of the 9 even if you didn't want to. Your ballot could not be submitted otherwise. Nevertheless, you could vote multiple times.
After the May 9th deadline for voting, I watched for a post or email about the results. Didn't see any. So I checked the site several times and did not see a new image loaded.
I checked again today just for kicks - expecting to see the same image. Well, the image was different, but it was not any of the 9 that had been the finalists.
Makes you wonder why all the fuss and why we went through the effort of submitting and then asking people to vote for our entry. Don't know who dropped the ball, but not sure I'll enter anymore AR sponsored photo contest.
By the way, this was my entry that was among the top 9.
