Does anyone know if those competition winners who had their photos used in the new calendar were paid in any way? Thanks.

I see what you did there. ;)Not really sure what this means.

I just wanted to make sure that the competition wasn't used as a way to get free photos to use in the calendar. Unfortunately photo comps are often used in this way :(, but I would be surprised if this was the case with BPL.

I'm pretty sure the whole idea for a calender arose from the member comments asking for one in response to the winning photos being announced. See this thread:

Sorry Jason. I've spent too much time on forums throughout life. "I see what you did there," is a sarcastic remark that means - I see your point, or I know what you are trying to get at.

It's silly I know. Sorry for the confusion.
