2009 Picture of the Year

Welcome to the
2009 Official Picture of the Year poll


The pictures are the winners of the 2009 monthly official Picture of the Month polls. Now you will choose the top picture of the year! It will close on 4 March 2010. During this time, we ask that NO ONE STATE WHOM THEY'VE VOTED FOR so as not to influence other members as they make their choices. After the poll closes, you can discuss as much as you'd like about which image you voted for and why.

This month, our Picture of the Month representatives had help in selecting their images with a small committee of their choosing. Below, you can see each royal house's representative (in bold) followed by their chosen committee members.

Wow, what a year for Sweden ! 6 winning pictures! 50%!
Hard to decide which picture is the best of the year; all look great.
Btw, have a look at the January poll, too.

I have to say that I actually hadn't be aware of the fact that Sweden
has won that often, I've never added the winning months.. So now
it'll be really interesting to see if one of the Sweden pics can make it!

Who imagined in the beginning of 2009 that the year would be so interesting for Sweden.
I really love one of the pictures in the poll.

Yes! I expected this lovely photo to win. It's almost impossible not to be caught by Victoria's and Daniel's overwhelming joy -of course even more if you know how much effort it took them to convince all of the "important" people in their surroundings that they've made the right choice...
But as I said, I was quite sure that the majority would vote for this picture, so I' ve decided to give a little "support" to that sweet photo with Madeleine and the girls planting a tree. Madeleine and the girl in front of her even look a bit like sisters from side-face imo (at least at first sight)
