A HUGE thank-you to everyone who entered the Mochimochi Photo Contest!!! Your creativity astounds me, and I’ve found myself inspired over and over again by your beautiful, funny, and clever photos.
The contest was a great success, with 90 participants and more than 400 entries. But choosing finalists for the photo contest is wayyy harder than I thought! My husband and trusted Mochimochi Land partner John and I have been narrowing down our favorites, but we’re still not quite down to our top ten. So tomorrow and Wednesday we’ll present our 20 semifinalists and encourage you to campaign for your favorites in the comments. Then the list of finalists will come later in the week and voting will commence!
Today we’re presenting (in no particular order) our Honorable Mentions: photos that didn’t make our semifinalists list, but that we still think are awesome.
UPDATE 12/12/07: I’ve taken the images in this post down to save bandwidth, but you can still click on the links to see the photos!
