After the avalanche of great JFK 50 photos we received, we think it would be unfair not to give the JFK photos the same treatment the DC-area trails contest submissions received. Therefore,
iRunFar is holding a second photo contest this Memorial Day weekend. Not only are we going to hold a vote to determine which JFK photos iRunFar readers like best, iRunFar is sweetening the pot with the same gift certificate prizes as offered in the DC trails contest: $25 for 1st, $15 for 2nd, and $10 for 3rd. (See full rules and prize info.)

As with the DC-area trails contest, we’ve posted the pictures without reference to the photographer to keep this focused on the best photos, rather than the photographer. iRunFar will add photographers’ names to the photos after the contest is over. Read on to see the 11 finalists.

Please look at all the photos before voting… no one at iRunFar is a programmer so the poll is not displayed in random order as it should be. Now go vote for any 3 photos in the lower poll to the right. While the poll will allow you to vote for more than three photos we are relying on the honor system here – be honorable.

Remember to vote for your 3 favorite JFK 50 photos! Voting ends 11:59 p.m. EDT on May 26.

Also remember to vote in the DC-area trails contest!
