As you've probably already noticed, we are running the photo of the month contest.

Who won the POTM title in December?
Before we get to the results of December contest, we have to admit that all eleven submissions we received in December were really great and we all enjoyed them here in our headquarters. And lot of people did so when they appeared in their feeds on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
So, if you are one of the eleven authors who entered the contest and you didn't make it to the top, don't worry. Just see your score in the chart below, which represents the number of the people who liked it so much they couldn't help to engage with your photo, to like it, share it with their friends or leave a comment (all of that counts as a vote). Anyway, there's only one photo of the month...
And the winning picture is...
The picture that moved the most hearts in December is the beautiful shot of the shelf cloud seen below. Big congrats to Giuly Merlo (follow him on Twitter and Instagram) who took this beautiful picture in Palermo, Italy. You are the winner of the Windy POTM title for December (expect follow up email from us soon).
