    Photo Competition for January 2017 - The Result

    Sorry for the delay in getting this result out folks. I've had to investigate a major case of voter fraud. Like my namesake in Pennsylvania Avenue, we know that some results are just plain wrong. In this case, Entry Number 14 got no/none/ziltch/zero votes. So obviously, something went badly wrong. We believe the voting may have been hacked and that all votes for #14 were electronically changed.

    But, in the meantime, as we take this to so-called judges, the results are as follows.

    3rd place

    Well done to those three. There were no other real close challengers. These three were pretty much way ahead of the field.

    If you want to view the full list of entries, including the hapless Entry #14 ( ) go to - Photo Competition for January 2017.

    Congrats to all the winners. Well deserved and are of such outstanding quality they would have placed at the top even if this case of egregious malfeasance proves to be true.

    I suggest you ban all non Gaelic voters, not living within a 100 km radius of Edinburgh, immediately until this can be sorted out. Our security is at stake.

    Well, super. I agree that there were a lot of great entries and while I did garner a recognition, I think I also voted for the hooter.

    Congrats to the winners! I must admit I flipped a coin between the eventual 1st and 2nd place entries. Very different photos but both are amazing in their own way.

    Congratulations Chris, Brian and Bobo for three outstanding images.

    As for the alleged hacker, I simply want to acknowledge that I spent the entire month of January within "100 km radius of Edinburgh" so you needn't investigate me.

    I love it!

    It's great fun watching as the votes come in. Sometimes, it's obvious after looking at the first rush, which way this is going to go. It's pretty obvious where the votes are going. Other times, the votes are all over the place and you have no idea how it's going to shake down.

    Just so long as it keeps stretching and encouraging people to pursue excellence, then it's worth it.

    Hey those three were all on my shortlist too - a tough choice.
