#Flickr12Days: Winners!

For the first year ever, we celebrated the holidays by asking you to join Flickr’s ultimate photo contest, #Flickr12Days, and share what joy means to you! The response was phenomenal, with over 63,000 photo submissions from nearly 7,000 people all over the world.

After reviewing all the entries and much deliberation, our panel of Flickr judges — Dave Brosha, Rosie Hardy, David Talley, Sarah Ann Loreth, and Joel Robison — has selected our final twelve winners.

Thank you everyone for spreading joy this holiday season and congratulations to our twelve winners!
