  1. That is the biggest load of crap in the world. That picture sucked compared to Smile for the camera. Smile for the camera went from 4th place to 2nd in one day doesnt that say something? The only possible way for him to win is to cheat. How many of his friends did he ask to vote ? ALL OF THEM? How many comments did he have at the bottom? NONE! Smile for the Camera had almost all of the comments. This Contest was Rigged!

  2. I think #13 was his mom and thats why he is upset. 🙂

    Thank you very much for the opportunity.

  3. Matthew, I hope your sick family member is getting better. Seems to me that the goal of any company or site is not just to give away prizes but to generate buzz or get people to go to their site. If the person who submitted the winning pic did more to get people to check out the site they should win. I voted for Don’t Worry, Be Happy as I thought it was the best picture even though there was a close second and third. Seeing the attitude of Austyn when loosing makes me glad I did not vote his way.

  4. I know this is old…. But I absolutely LOVE this photo! I saved it as a wall paper on my computer!!!
