It's time for the 2012 "Best Of Burque" awards from the Alibi! Thank you so very much for your support in 2010 and 2011. It would mean a lot to me, personally, if you could continue to support GPG in 2012. If you like GPG, and you've ever wondered what you could do to give back, please take just a moment to cast your vote for "Guerrilla Photo Group" in the "Best Ongoing Arts Event" (#59) and "Best Totally Free Activity You Can Only Do Here" (#37) categories. Voter registration is a breeze. Once registered, if you click on the drop-down menu at the bottom, you'll see the "ARTS AND LIT" voting section.
Additionally, if you're feeling particularly kind, please consider voting for me as this year's "Best Photographer." As many of you know, I've been focusing a great deal on providing quiality photography education this year. I would be extremely pleased if you would also write me into the "Best Anything We Forgot" category as "Educator." You have to vote for several items (20) in order for your ballot to be counted (but don't put the same thing down more than 5x, or the ballot gets disqualified!)
There are no prizes to be won, only a nifty plaque for the studio (and braggin' rights.) I'd love to invite you to the all-expense-paid rooftop victory party in Vegas, but alas, all I can do is say "thank you" truly, for your support. I hope that good Karma is enough. :-) Take a second right now, would you please?
