I know that the winners were already announced on the Sylvanian Families and Calico Critters Community forum, but I felt that they needed to be placed on my blog as well.
We received such lovely entries and the decision was a really hard one! But, it was still fun to judge the photos with my best friend and fellow collector who braved the hour-long drive just to get to me so that we could chat about Sylvanians and decide on the winners. I also have to thank my darling husband and mother both who gave some input on the entries and to my two anonymous judges who could not make the drive down to me, (You know who you are) thank you for being the tie breakers. ;-)
Our winner is PaigeLeeann with her lovely little romantic sunset dinner.
The judges loved the dreamy sunset feeling that this photo has and overall it is super romantic! :-)
Our runner up is Kyraja with her wonderful little Snow-Warren grandparents having their fondue picnic.
The judges loved the grandparents being so overly cute having their picnic in the park!
I have to admit that there was very stiff competition and in the end we were glad that the judging was over. If I could have my way, everyone would be a winner in their own category! The hardest part for me was that the photos all came from different people of all ages with different levels of skill and different outlooks on the theme.
Our winners have both been contacted and arrangements made for their prizes.
I hope that I will be able to host another competition again next year!
