There's nothing like a happy kid or funny dog to bring a smile to our faces.

We had a lot of fun looking at the 20 joy entries this week but trying to pick a winner - not so much.

After much discussion, the editors chose Bill Goff's photo of his granddaughter. Read why in Friday's People section of the newspaper.

Next week's assignment: Motion. This is a good opportunity to show off your skills. Have at it.

The rules:

- Send just one (1) photograph to by noon on Tuesday, Feb. 25. Include your name, town and where the photo was taken. If you send us multiple photos we will select one randomly.

- If you want your photo to be eligible to run in the newspaper, it must be at least 1,500 pixels. Our editors will select which photo will appear each week. We reserve the right to not publish any photo for any reason.

- We will allow photographs with reasonable watermarks to run in the gallery but for the winning photo that runs in the newspaper we must have a photo that does not have a watermark. If you want to send us one with the watermark (to run online) and one without (to possibly run in the newspaper) please feel free.
