Pick of the Month winners/ Pick of the Year Voting

Wow and wow! When reviewing all of the amazing Nominees and Pick of the Week winners for the past year, we were absolutely blown away with the talent, creativity, and mad skills of this wonderful RSD community. What an awesome journey this Pick of the Week contest has been! You have inspired and delighted us and we thank each and every one of you who have allowed us to share your RSD projects on Pick of the Week posts.

The EDT has been voting all week, choosing the monthly winners from the weekly winners for that month. The weekly winners made choosing very difficult (such crazy-good projects) and we are very relieved that the public will help out with the voting for Pick of the Year. Before announcing the Pick of the Month winners who are now also the Pick of the Year Nominees, you might want to know what Rick has chosen as the PRIZE for the Pick of the Year winner. Are you ready for this?

And now for the amazing PRIZE announcement. The Pick of the Year winner will receive  three (3) single images of their choice every month for a year. Yes, I said for one year! Thank you, Rick, for that generous prize. RSD Digi Heaven!
