Wetpixel has launched its 2011 Picture of the Year contest. You can now vote for your favorites from all 51 winners of the Wetpixel (POTW) Picture of the Week contest for 2011. The POTW contest never ceases to amaze with the quality, diversity and talent that it produces. The public vote for the Picture of the Year will start today, and run through until 28 February 2012, after which the winners will be announced.

The contest has a fantastic selection of prizes available. Solmar V has offered a trip aboard their luxury liveaboard as first prize and Ikelite, who also kindly provide the prizes for each and every POTW competition, has donated a DS161 strobe for the entry voted into second place. Nauticam USA has provided a $1,000 gift voucher for the third placed image with Reef Photo and Video of Fort Lauderdale, Florida generously giving gift vouchers of $500 and $250 for fourth and fifth placed images respectively.

The contests voting page is open now so please head on over and cast a vote for your favorite images of 2011.

On a more serious note, we will be logging IP addresses of all votes, and if it seems that any "spam voting" is going on, will disqualify any entries that we feel have benefited from the votes cast. The images are a testament to the amazing depth of photographic talent that is here on Wetpixel, please let the contest reflect this, not the size of your email/Facebook friends page!
