The results of the voting never fail to blow me away! It is a tight race for the top spots in the Photo of the Year contest every time, and 2016 was no exception. As always, these top spots know how to work their networks, because their friends and family helped get them here.
In no particular order, the 6 images with the top votes from the first round are below. I always think that I’ll pick spot 5 and 6, but I always choose the ones with the most votes. After all, those networks worked hard to make it happen for these families.

The final round of voting will determine the Photos of the Year 2016:
- Winner of the popular vote from the round 2 online poll
- Winner chosen by a panel of professional photographers
In addition, votes on Instagram (@stefanieharrington) will count! I will post all images over the next couple of days with the “likes” counting toward the poll results. In order for votes to count, voters must follow @stefanieharrington and like the individual contest photo(s) posted under this account.
The online voting ends Sunday, March 5. The winners will be announced here on the blog next week. Finally, remember, you can vote for more than 1 photo, but you can only vote once.
As always, this contest is entirely because of all of the amazing families and their support. A huge Thank You to the Stefanie Harrington families. I’m so so grateful to all of you!
