I was browsing the internet last weekend and I stumbled upon flickrawards.com (external link)
It's quite a cool idea.

Breifly this is what Flickrawards is, a bunch of categorys, Colour, Flora, Cityscape, Event, B&W, Action, to name a few (60 and climbing) you submit a photo that best suits the subject and once there are 6 submissions it goes to the vote. If you win the category you get a little number beside your name, you start atzero with a bronze rank, after 10 wins you are silver, 25 wins gold.

Your photos are uploaded by a very user friendly interface, if your photostream is huge are your pics are key-worded it's a breeze.

You also get points for picking the first and second places photo's in each category, this encourages people to vote to keep the game rolling.

I find it very helpful, I get to find out how people view my photos is a short period of time, I can see what photos of others people like and theres noting quite like a good bit of competition to get the creative juices flowing.

If you want to join up and take me on ;) My user name is Jason Milich

Cheers, Enjoy

Hi Jason. Thank you for your recommendation to other members regarding FlickrAwards. As the author of the website I thought I would just quickly correct one thing. You don't actually have to be a Pro member of Flickr to enjoy the website. Anyone can join in but if you want to vote from the off you must have atleast 10 pictures within your Flickr account when you join the website. If you don't simply submitting 5 pictures into any of the live contest categories will reward you with the ability to vote.

It will be great to see you all there. It's absolutely free, really fun and great to see how your pictures do head to head with other photographers of all abilities...

Thanks again.

Steven

If it moves, shoot it. If it shoots back, get a bigger lens.
