The contest, which began on January 3rd, for the most popular photo of Shanghai E.A. from the recent World Championships in Paris, has officially come to an end at midnight on January 22nd. Contest entries came from photographers from all over the world. The organizers accepted entries up to December 15th. The Spanish stud of Equus Arabians (breeder and owner of the double World Silver Medalist stallion from Paris) chose 25 photographs which competed in the finals for first place. Registered fans and their votes determined the classification of the photos. Every voter could vote once each day, awarding their favorite photographs from 1 up to 5 points. The battle for the top spot (the Gold Photo) turned out to be extremely fierce and very thrilling, lasting all the way up to the final minutes of the contest.
