Tell us you favourites and win.

Dear Readers,

Over the next two weeks, each day we will be running a portfolio of each photographer's favourite pictures from the past year.

To participate in the contest simply identify your favourite picture in comment section on the bottom of the blog or reply to the @TOstarphoto twitter feed or respond each day on the Toronto Star Photo Department facebook page.

Each comment will count as one "ballot" (max one ballot per day per person) 

At the end of the two weeks we will draw for the prizes.

 Top prize will be a $250 Henry's School of Imaging gift certificate.

There will be other prizes ranging from a T-shirt to other Toronto Star swag!

Please check in every day to see our favourite work.

Thank you from the Toronto Star Photographers.

And because it would be weird to have a photo blog without any pictures, here is a small sample of some of the pictures.

DAVID COOPER - Blue Jays right fielder Jose Bautista playfully sticks his tongue out at photographers during photo day at spring training in Dunedin.

It was part of the larger day of protest for Syrians in numerous cities.

Rick Madonik's shot from Nov.17/12 of Ricky Ray and Chad Owens checking out an empty Olympic Stadium the day before the Eastern Final is fantastic. When I saw it the first time I actually believed that these two men will bring the Championship to Toronto. And they did!!

I love the picture of Doug Ford and Dejhon Marlin. No politics just the sheer joy of the moment.

Dr Mark Miller getting measured. I really love the composition

I love the shot of the frog. The detail captured in his eyes is amazing!
