See all the finalists and vote for your favorite today! You can vote once a day between now and 12PM eastern, October 9th.

If you joined a little late, like me, you can still view all the photos from the campaign on a flickr slideshow, join the trust on Facebook, and submit your photos from This Place Matters homepage.

In addition, I also found out today that the Atlanta Central Library has earned a spot on the endangered building list. Read about it at the Creative Loafing blog.
