Are these the nine entries that are up for the final voting? I don't see how to vote. It seems that some of them don't follow the contest rules, as noted in the comment above.
I am also wondering how these contestants submitted photographs. I thought it was more of a writing contest than a photography contest. I don't recall even seeing a way to submit a photo when I entered via the website form.
I posted a comment above that I had been very confused about the rules of this contest. I did get an extremely helpful and friendly response back from SkiMagazine yesterday. The woman I spoke to agreed that they were having some logistical challenges with the running of the contest. She said that the entries posted above (that are listed as "finalists") just happened to be a handful of the first responses they got to the contest, and that they e-mailed those people and asked them to send in photos after the fact just so they'd have something to post on the site. She assured me that SkiMagazine will go through the many entries they have received and post a selection of the best ones in the next few days, at which point voting will start. She also assured me that only entries that met all the rules would be considered.
So, if you worked hard to submit a creative response and keep it at 100 words or less, don't despair!
Have you changed the day that the contest closes? I've checked back on your site every day since January 21st and I have not seen any place to vote, or any other voters. Have I missed something?
