I honestly can’t believe it but my image above won the BGG contest for the 2009 Picture of the Year. Last year there were 195,895 new images uploaded, 1.3 million new forum posts, 11 million unique visitors, and 291 million page views. Board gaming is a relatively niche hobby but with numbers like that I feel like a small fish in a big pond.
Having no training in photography, if I can win, anyone can win. Thank you for all the votes, good luck to all of you in the ongoing monthly contests, and in the year end contest for 2010.
