Thanks Richard but to be honest I'm not as excited as you or others seem to be. The reasons for that are mostly because without the comments received I would have known nothing about it, secondly there seems to be some belief I have won a prize when as I read it the only thing I was due was a spell in the limelight via the blog and contest page but even that it seems hasn't happened as March results are there now at the time I and others are just seeing February results.

I can only assume there was a delay and that 2 months were done at once or something thereby negating February winners and runners up.

kind regards, Sam

NB If anyone reading this knows more I would be interested to know what took place.

h.aygor, thank you but what prize ?, I haven't won a prize, unless you know something I don't ?

regards, Sam

But this results seems on the contest main page. Under the March results.

Have a good night, Aygor

h.aygor, it states the first 2 winners receive a prize, the other 5 runners up receive a place on the contest page only.

I have received no prize and furthermore I have had no notification from the Panoramio team regarding the contest. I appreciate everybody's congratulations but as stated I have not won a prize.

kind regards, Sam

Now I got it! In my opinion your Picture deserves the prize. Best regards my friend, Aygor

Hello Sam. Congratulations on your February contest award. I just stumbled across it. I rarely check the contest results anymore as they seem to be very sporadic. I won 2nd place (believe it or not) in the August 2012 (East category) contest. I didn't find out until January 2013 (so my photo never appeared on the "landing page" either) and I just received my 2nd place prize YESTERDAY you can see it on my Flickr account. I have been wanting to thank you for your help and encouragement over the past year or so...I just haven't been able to work it into a comment post. My photo is an 18 photo merge so I literally could not have done it without your help. Thanks again, Sam and congratulations on your well deserved recognition. Regards, JT

Thank you XEON, Yuri and BVA .

You flatter me JT but I am delighted I was inspirational in your compilation and subsequent win. Like you I rarely ever look at the contest pages believing the whole thing to be a farce at times and my only reason for adding my images to it are so a wider audience gets to see my beautiful Yorkshire. To see I got runner up was a huge surprise especially as the image hadn't received any massive amount of comments , until the results were announced anyway leaving me very perplexed. It's strange that people must have voted and yet comments weren't forthcoming until now, I'll never figure that one. I am pleased to see you have done well and as I said elsewhere I am sure you will put your prize to good use, enjoy !

kind regards, Sam :o)
