Local photographers want your vote for their entry in the My Gay Texas photo contest

Sure we can all take cool, digital pics with our phones and tiny cameras, but it takes a talent to make a picture into a message. For this year’s Readers Voice Awards, we focused our attention on local photographers asking them what image they think fully displays the idea of “My Gay Texas.” Now, those photographers are itching for your vote in our contest.

We had to narrow down from an impressive field of entries, but the list came down to nine images and now the decision is in your hands for which best displays “My Gay Texas.” You can sneak peek ‘em after the jump. The deadline to vote is Saturday, Jan. 28. Just click the banner above to get started.
