I enjoy the contest. I would like to see all of us take new pictures for the challenge and not use old ones, which I am guilty of. Now that the weather is getting nicer, it will be easier for me to get out and take more pictures.

I wonder if we stop voting and just discuss the pictures people would be more apt to post? I'd like to hear constructive criticism to help me learn more.

I'd love to get back in it. It was so much fun before and it gave me a reason to try to actually learn how to use my camera instead of just setting it on automatic. I think Linda is right....now that weather is nicer it will be easier to get pictures. Prizes sound great too. Doesn't the other board give away stuff to the winner of their photo contests? How do they do it?

i have an idea, may need some more thinking through.... But how about a JL Calendar..... The competition could run monthly, then the winner for that month, gets that months slot in next year’s calendar i.e. Januarys winner becomes January’s picture the following year. It would need someone to organise printing, postage etc, but a small charge could be applied to people who want to purchase, that would cover the printing and postage costs. I would be happy to do it but i am in the UK and most of the board are in the US, the cost of postage from here to the US would drive up the cost. Alternatively, we design one ourselves, and put it on the website for people to download - free :)

OR - still going with the idea that we design ourselves and post on the website…. the winner from the previous month could be the next months picture, then the calendar can be published monthly to include up and coming events etc.

I am no technical whizz but i am sure that we could find a board member that could design the calendar.

I got busy with a few things and plain forgot last week. I do like the idea of doing a monthly and getting new pictures. Because of the weather I've been using older ones.

I'm still interested. I just forgot about it. I like the criticism idea also. I think monthly is too far spread out. bi-weekly would be ok. Maybe a reminder in O&E?

Ugh, I totally forgot about this, I've been really busy (2jobs) I would appreciate keeping it, I am actually going to be taking a photography class starting at the end of may, I want to really learn how to use the camera instead of automatic. I vote for every other week contest, gives us more time to get out there and shoot.

I'm interested too, but don't have time to do it weekly. I think if it was more spread out it would be easier for folks to get their submissions in. Even if I don't make it in, I love seeing everyone's pictures. There are some really good photographers here.

so... is it monthly now? because there still has been no action on "week 12".
I was wondering the same thing. Week 12 has been an awfully long week. :)

No kidding!!! Maybe we should just move on... Anyone want to post the next Challenge? :whistle:
I think you should post a new topic, this week is never going to end.

I know this is old, but I think Linda has a good idea :) A lot of people may not be inspired... they may feel like they take the same picture of fido holding a stick in his mouth, and get bummed out by it. I think having feedback on the pictures could help make it fun for everyone.

Why not move it to the pics folder and out of this Photography 101 folder? I've been around a while and never knew about the contest. Better yet, put it on the main page where it's not out of sight - out of mind.
