    Default Image of the Year Overall Winner 2011 James Salywoda

    Once again, so many great images and only one IOTY winner!
    That winner is James Salywoda.
    Please join me in congratulating James Salwoda for having his image "Cassin's Kingbird, TheDispute" selected as the BirdPhotographers.Net Image Of The Year for 2011!

    The image of the year contest is one of the benefits of being a BPN member. Only BPN members qualify to participate in the Image of The Week and Image Of The Year contests.

    We want to be completely transparent about our selection process. In order to avoid even the appearance of favoritism, all staff members had the opportunity to participate in nominating and selecting the winners.
    Here are the steps taken to select BirdPhotographers.Net's Image Of The Year.

    • First our staff members nominated one image from each image critique forum.


    • Second the nominated list of anonymous images were posted in a private selection forum.


    • Third our staff voted via poll for their favorite image in each category. If there was a clear cut winner, that became the Image Of The Year for it's category.


    • In case of a category tie, the images receiving equal votes were re-posted and voted on again until there was a winner by majority vote.


    • The ownership group selected the overall winner of BPN's Image Of The Year from the IOTY category winners .

    The Image Of The Year First Runner Up is Ross Konigsburg.

    The Image Of The Year Second Runner Up is Ovidiu Cavasdan.
