Congratulations to the Winners of the 2009 Photograph of the Year Contest

2009 Photograph of the Year - Autumn Resurrection by fa1salAfter 2 months of 2009 Photograph of the Year contest craziness, last week it finally came to an exciting close. Hundreds of entries, thousands of votes, and now we have 9 Runner-Ups and 1 Winner: fa1sal with his photograph “Autumn Resurrection” (pictured right). For winning the 2009 Photograph of the Year contest, Faisal picks up $3,250 of the $10,000 in prizes that will be dispersed to the winners. Almost all of the prizes were supplied by 9 fantastic sponsors: PhotoBook Press, Cotton Carrier, Mpix, Imagevuex, AKVIS, ThinkTankPhoto, Amazon.com, SmugMug and Daymen.
