Announcement of top three photos
 
The 2009 Arkansas Media Directory was received today, and the APA staff has begun distribution. Most newspapers should have their copies in the next few days, although the federal holiday on Monday could slightly delay delivery. The first-, second- and third-place winners in the 2009 Directory Cover Photo Contest have been mailed their checks and letters of congratulation. So, now it is time to announce the top three vote getters in this year's competition.

Congratulations to the winners!
 
APA would like to congratulate the top three winners as well as the 12 finalists announced earlier. As previously noted, 115 photos were submitted, and the quality of the entries was very impressive. The competition was stiff, and the winners should be proud of their contributions to this year's contest and the APA's Media Directory.

So, now we unveil the 2009 cover...
