We have the winners of the Carnival of Homeschooling images contest

Late last year we kicked off a contest for graphics to represent the Carnival of Homeschooling. We had great participation in January. You can see all the entries for small, medium and whatever sizes.

After getting dozens of submissions, my wife and I narrowed the contest down to a dozen or so. We then asked people to vote. The voting ended late in March.

Below are the winners. (I took so long to announce the winners because I was trying to figure out a good way to host the images.)

Nancy of The Kings Kreation won the prize for the small image:

Carnival of Homeschooling

Eric Novak of The Voice of Experience won the prize for the medium size image:

Carnival of Homeschooling

Amy of ....In Pursuit of Proverbs 31 won the prize for the Whatever size image:

Carnival of Homeschooling

Please use these images on your blog to help promote the Carnival of Homeschooling. You should be able to just add the following HTML to your template or a post and not have to worry about down loading and uploading the images.

:Thanks for all your hard work! The winners look great. Somehow my entry never made it in. It was fun to participate anyway.

Thanks for the kind words.

I will use one or two of these, thanks! :~D

These are great!

Just an FYI, these links wreaked havoc with the WordPress html auto-editor. Apparently "correct" html syntax (or what it belives that to be!) is to put the href first, then the title. Ah, the daily trials, eh?

Tiffany said...

Okay, after even more trial and error, what makes WordPress happy is to put the p tag before the whole bit the the href (which can remain before the title).

@Tiffany - I, too, am having troubles getting the small image to render properly in my Wordpress sidebar. I have tried tweaking the code so that it is formatted like the other badges in the sidebar, but all that appears is a thin sliver of the top of the image. Any help anyone could offer would be greatly appreciated!

Henry Cate said...

Kim, I don't have a solution for you. Maybe someone else will contribute a solution.

One thought does occur to me. If you see another homeschooling blog with the small image rendering properly in Wordpress you might check out their html.

Good luck.
