New Year's is a great symbolic opportunity to reassess our values and current trajectory. In this spirit, we asked our customers to post on Twitter their Resolutions with the hashtag #CanonResolution for a chance to win a Canon T3i.
A tidal wave of responses poured in. The photos were inspirational, witty, beautiful and often all of these at once.

Alas, there can only be one winner, but we were blown away by the quantity and quality of responses, so thank you everyone for contributing! It was an extremely hard choice. In choosing the winner, a lot of factors played into the decision: aesthetics, presentation of the idea, and of course, the stated goal. We'll get to the winner at the conclusion of this post, but first, we want to acknowledge...
