The editorially-chosen winner will be selected from all entries by qualified judges. Reader's Choice weekly winners will have no bearing on the selection of the editorial-chosen winner. All entries, regardless if they are a Reader's Choice weekly winner or not, will have equal chance to be selected as the editorial-chosen winner.

Additional Info:  This contest is sponsored by Meredith Corporation, publisher of Parents magazine and other lifestyle magazines.

Personal note:  Parents conducts many unique photo contests throughout the year - more than I ever realized and many are multi-week contests, some with weekly prizes leading up to final grand prizes.  Having discovered this recently, I will begin checking the site more often to compile the contest details and post the listings before the weekly portion of the contests begin.
