Fans from across the globe, on five continents, have been following the Lightning on the Official Tampa Bay Lightning Facebook Fan Page since June of this year. And since then, the popularity of the Fan Page has made its way from Tampa to Sarasota, Australia to Germany.

The Official Fan Page is designed to give Bolts fans from across the globe another forum to network, cheer on the Lightning and take part in some great contests, promotions and giveaways. And since some of our fans are unable to participate in contests that take place in the Tampa Bay Area, this contest was designed with our out-of-area fans in mind.

After the submission deadline had passed, we narrowed down the number of photos to a list of top ten finalists. Now we're asking our fans to choose the best photo! Please look over each fan-submitted photo, read the comments that were submitted and vote for which photo you believe represents the Tampa Bay Lightning's global pride!

Contest Winner

The person receiving the most votes for the best picture will receive a Limited Edition Team Autographed Stick! Our first runner-up will receive a Limited Edition Vincent Lecavalier Autographed Stick. And the person receiving the third highest amount of votes will receive a Limited Edition Martin St. Louis Autographed Stick!

Votes must be in by 11:00 a.m. (EST), December 8, 2009
