Best of the Best Photo Contest

To celebrate the one-year birthday of our photo contest, we've gathered all the past winners for one super-sized contest.

Browse the slide show below, then vote for your favorite photo using the poll at the bottom of the page. The winner gets a $100 gift certificate to the Fourth Estate.

Want to view all the past winners at once? Check out our winners' gallery, then come back here to vote. Reader voting closes at noon on July 31.

*To help keep this contest fair, we’ve elected to use an IP address-based poll. This means that if you are voting from an office or network setting, not everybody will be able to vote. We apologize for the inconvenience, but we hope you’ll encourage coworkers to vote from their home computers. And as always, we reserve the right to disqualify a photo if we see any voting irregularities.
