    COW of the year ?

    by Dug » Sat Nov 10, 2007 11:38 pm

    Are we going to run a best of the best Cow competition ?

    Perhaps select one photo from each month and vote for the best of the 12 photos ?

    Just an idea !

    perhaps 4 heats of 3 months winning cow as a semi final?


    then the best of 4 as the final?

    something like that?

    To do a COW of the year fairly (which I think is an excellent idea) we need to judge 52 images.

    We could vote for the best twelve then for the best of the best. That way all images selected as COW would have an equal chance of winning.

    Do both, the winner gets the front page of the calender.

    Sorry for the bad news but you would need 3 months to put a calender together and 3 months to sell them

    I'm sure you would sell at least 12
    Assuming 12 different monthly winners. :wink:

    If we make 10 of them then the bidding may go higher ! :lol:

    Just make sure we did not double up on a winner :wink:
