The Year In Pictures: Apartment Therapy & The Kitchn Photo Contest

2011 was a big year for us at Apartment Therapy and The Kitchn, and this week we are honoring the images created by our team of contributors. We are scattered across the globe, but come together in the goal of taking beautiful pictures to illustrate our stories. With this in mind, we invite you to vote for a favorite picture of 2011 that ran on one of our sites.

We polled our team for photo submissions over the holidays and the resulting 25 images are up for the top picture of the year. We want to hear from you about which photo you think deserves this distinguished honor. Many of our contributors have day jobs or other interests and for some, photography is long time passion and for others, it's a newly developed skill.

Please take a moment to fill out our survey, selecting the image you think deserves top nod out of our 25 contenders. Thanks and cheers to another great year of beautiful images!
