What Does Natural Parenting Really Look Like? Vote Now and Decide!
We created a place on Flickr for natural parents to share their favorite photos, and the amount of talent and beauty captured by your cameras and shared with our community has been amazing! Over 160 people have joined NPN’s Flickr group, contributing over 1100 photographs of everything from birth to big kids freeranging in the wilderness. We know it was hard to choose favorites, but choose you did. 27 pictures were chosen by a panel of judges (a group your devoted Natural Parents Network cofounders and editors) based on votes and adherence to our theme.
While there were hundreds of gorgeous photos to peruse, below are the pictures that truly exemplify our theme — “what natural parenting really looks like.” We have grouped the finalists into categories that show what natural parenting is all about. For complete contest rules and a look at the fabulous prize packages up for grabs, please see the original contest post and the sponsors post.
Whether you have yet to join the Flickr party, or you’re an active member of the group who’s long been rooting for one of the stunners below, here’s your last chance to propel your favorite photo to victory.
How to Vote:
- Check out the 27 finalists below and select your FIVE top choices. Each photo has a number, a caption, and the photographer’s name.
- Scroll down to the bottom of this post and vote by checking the boxes next to your favorite five. Each checkbox is numbered and named to correspond to the order of the photos. If for some reason the form below does not load, or if you’d like it to load in a different window, you can view the voting form in a different tab by clicking here.
- We are using the honor entry and asking that you only vote one time during this round. Thank you!
Please limit yourself to ONE entry only.
