It really is a stunning calendar. It also features dates of the important births, deaths, marriages and battles related to the Tudors, so you’ll know what happened in history 500 years ago.
And now for the winners…
The rules stated that each entrant could submit three photographs and that there had to be a Tudor link/theme. The judges judged each individual photograph on its merits. Lynnie Keathley is the overall winner with her beautiful photo of the Tower of London. Lynnie wins a $50 Amazon.com gift certificate (or equivalent) and her photo is featured on a month and on the calendar cover. The runner-up prize of a $25 Amazon.com gift certificate (or equivalent) goes to Alison Ratcliffe for her lovely photograph of Hoghton Tower. Other winners, whose photos appear in the calendar, are Hibah Yasin, Volker Laucher and Snezana Brankov (2 photos!), Kim Carlisle, Rochelle Chiocca, Kayla Kemper (2 photos!), Melinda Barrett, Marloes Otte and Meghan Evans. Congratulations to them.
