Vote In Our Special Exposure Model Search Contest — 5 Minutes for Special Needs

Vote In Our Special Exposure Model Search Contest

by Melody


People who entered photos…you made this a difficult decision for the judges here at 5 Minutes for Special Needs (who have opted to remain anonymous). The task of choosing only three finalists from the pool of adorable kids photographed for the Special Exposure Model Search Photo Contest was so tough that four finalists, rather than three, have been chosen.

Now it is up to you to vote, YOU, the readers…all readers…any readers…and choose the Special Exposure Model who will replace the stock image on our blog button.

Voting begins today and ends at 11:59PM on Monday, September 8.

Using Democracy Poll below to vote, please note: Democracy Poll only allows one vote per computer. If other family members wish to vote, they will have to vote from different computers.

A word to each finalist, all is fair in love and photography…get out there and promote your photo. Blog, beg, whine or offer cash, but get your blog readers, family and friends over here to vote.

Shown in no particular order…our four finalists…

#1 – Kristen of No Small Thing

Henry John

#2 – Holly of Caleigh’s Corner


#3 – by Shannon of Gabi’s World


#4 – by Meg of The Pages of Our Crazy Life

Please note: To vote click the circle beside your choice. If you would like to know the current vote tally, click “view results”. When you click “view results” the page will minimize and you will need to bring it back up in order to see the tally. You cannot vote in view results mode.

The winner will be revealed in the Special Exposure Wednesday post on September 10.

Please, feel free to use comments here to cheer for your favorite. 🙂

Melody can be found writing here at 5MFSN every Tuesday in addition to hosting Special Exposure Wednesday. You will also find her at Slurping Life sharing photos and a few words from her special life.

Well, I think they’re all cute! But I really like that #1! And it has nothing to do with the fact that he’s my son!!!

Do you know that the numbers above each picture are in backwards order to the numbers when we vote? For example, the 4th picture is actually the #1 voting spot.

3 Kristen September 2, 2008 at 2:29 pm

Oh, yikes! It looks like it is fixed now…

4 Holly September 2, 2008 at 2:46 pm

Aren’t they a bunch of adorable kiddos? Hmmmm… # 2 is my favorite…..must be mama’s love. hehe…..

5 Melody September 2, 2008 at 3:38 pm

Alicia, thanks! I did fix it, and added the note at the post beginning that if you voted before 2PM 09/02, please vote again. The votes prior to that (very few) were deleted.

I really should not blog at 2AM. 😮

6 Christina September 2, 2008 at 4:54 pm

Oh, they are all adorable! Good luck to all our little finalists! 🙂

7 Shannon September 2, 2008 at 5:22 pm

Oh wow! I am honored to just be in the finals! Thanks!

They’re all gorgeous. I wish they all could win.
Congratulations to all.

9 Alicia September 2, 2008 at 7:49 pm

The pictures really are precious! Any would be great, but I did want to make sure I voted on the right one! I want to say again what a great idea this was! I love this blog!

10 Christina September 2, 2008 at 8:38 pm

I am really rooting for Gabi!!! Can’t wait to see who wins! Good luck to all though!

I have to say that all of the children are beautiful, but…. #1 – Ever since I have known Henry, he has been a child full of sweetness & a fun energy. His picture is so sweet & it’s hard to believe but he’s even cuter in person. 🙂 GO HENRY!! 🙂

12 Stacey September 2, 2008 at 9:43 pm

I hated to only pick just…one… they are all so special…
And the fact that they were all clean,smiling, and holding still– that is simply AMAZING!

15 Kristen September 3, 2008 at 12:33 pm

I have a question…I put the link to vote on my blog, but people are telling me that it takes them to the results page, and that there is no place for them to vote…what am I doing wrong!?

16 Brenda September 3, 2008 at 12:43 pm

The sparkly colorful eyes in #4 grabbed me the most!

17 Meg Beverly September 3, 2008 at 2:24 pm

Oooooh, I’m so excited to see my little guy up there alongside those other ADORABLE children! I love that this site has led me to the blogs and photos of so many beautiful, special families! Thank you for everything you do and for letting me join in!

18 Nana September 3, 2008 at 7:37 pm

All four contestents are beautiful children. But number three is very special to me. I’m so proud that Gabi was chosen as one of the top four. Good luck to all the children

19 Lori September 3, 2008 at 9:55 pm

All beautiful… who do I vote for?

Good luck to all four!
