DORAL (CBSMiami) – The fans have spoken, and a Plantation woman’s photo of her three kids ready to cheer on the Miami Heat in white hot wigs has been picked as the best photo submitted in the CBSMiami.com White Hot Heat Fan Photo contest.
The photo submitted by Gaelle Dorn of Plantation was one of the 5 finalists in the contest, and was selected by visitors to CBSMiami.com who were allowed to pick one of the 5. The finalists were selected by a panel of judges at CBS4, who had the task of looking through hundreds of photos submitted by Heat fans top find the most original, funny, heartwarming, unique, and literally fantastic photo.
It was not an easy job.
“There were so many great photos”, said Dave Game, Executive producer for Digital Media at CBSMiami.com.”People went all out to show their creativity, and it was so hard to pick just 5 out of such a great group of pictures. But, in the end, the winning photo was one selected as a finalist by almost every judge on the panel.”
The runner up selected by the fans was Kathy Bellamy of Delray Beach, who submitted a photo of her 10 year old son who had the Heat logo shaved into his hair, and then dressed up with body paint.
Voters also had the chance to select a dog posing on a basketball, a long time heat fan dressed in all-white Top Hat and Tails, and a young Heat fan caught imitating a huge poster of LeBron James.
Once all the legal niceties are checked and Dorn is confirmed as the official winner, she will take home your admiration for a great picture, as well as a brand new Apple iPad 2
