Vote for the spintop photo of 2018!
« on: January 19, 2019, 08:07:16 PM »

You can vote for up to 3 photos. I one photo gets at least 3 more votes than the rest, it wins automatically.  If not, we will have a another vote with the 3 top photos.
Voting ends Friday at 1PM US Central Time. You can change your votes until the end of the voting period.

I selected one photo for each contributor. But if you disagree with my selection or you would really want more than one of your photos in the contest, just tell me and I will make the change.

The photos are:

1. Penguin UD trick by Jim in Paris



2. Red Dancer by Turegano



3. A top atop a top by TheSpinForce



4. Tintin plays top by Jim in Paris



5. Onto the Arena by Turegano



6. Spin Joy by SpinLynn



7. Bent under top by Mark Hayward



8. Spin and sail away by ta0



9. Guarding the castle by ta0



10. Superpower fun by Jay

I'm sorry. I wanted to put 2 because of the relatively small number of photos, but I copied and pasted from last year which had 3. As some people have already voted, I left it at 3. If you only voted for 2, you can erase your votes and re-vote.

Congratulations to SpinLynn! Her photo Spin Joy had 4 more votes than the runner up, Bent Under Top by Mark Hayward, what makes it an automatic winner.
In 2015 her photo had gotten the second place:



what shows that her Instagram-ready smile greatly complements a spinning top  :)

I feel we could have had more entries, but people just forgot to nominate the photos. We are starting a new year, so I hope you all take great pictures of your hobby and we have a great contest again.

I need to remember to come by more often. These are great!

It only got 2 votes, but I really like "Superpower Fun".

Awww, I just realised I had the perfect pic to enter :( I can't find it out right now but it was a pic of my son with my 'love' spinning on his hand with the biggest smile in the world :)

How does this work for 2019? Jorge, we just post pics throughout the year, and you pick ones you like to be voted on?

Also, I just looked at "Superpower Fun" again, and is that shirt "a thing"!? Can I get one?

Sorry if I've missed all this stuff...

I'll soon start a thread where anybody can nominate anybody's photos.
If there are many photos and are more than one photo from the same photographer I might pre-select his/her best(s), but otherwise I don't chose photos.

I wished Jay had nominated some of his photos himself. I missed this one that could have been a contender:



and I was disappointed that this one didn't have a top spinning in sight or I would have nominated it  ;D :



Yes, the Spintop Superpower T-shirt is from Spintastics. I bought several and even won worlds wearing one!  ;D

I guess I forgot about you wearing it. Or, I was just too mesmerized by your performance to notice! :D

Oh, and thanks for making that pic my avatar!
