All,

Anyone interested in having a photo challenge? If you are, there are a few things that need to be worked out. First, we need to figure out who is going to judge the submissions, what the topics will be and how often. The floor is now open to suggestions:


THINGS TO CONSIDER
---------------

What will be the topic/subject ?

How frequent or the contest/challenges - weekly/monthly?

What are the rules of the the contest/challenges ?

Who would like to judge submissions?

Note:

There are NO PRIZES awarded, this is for fun an artistic value ONLY.

The contest/challenge WILL NOT BE IN THIS THREAD. It will be under Photography, Share Photos.

Open to suggestions.

Big Smile,

It's a great idea; hopefully more of you G3ers will venture into the shared photo forum.

As it stands now, anyone can post a challenge at any time. There have been two recently, and there were more a year or so ago. Think of an interesting subject, or a technique that might help others learn, and fire away! :)

My only question is on the need for judges, esp. if it is done under "shared photos" rather than the critiquing forum. In order to not scare anyone away, I suggest limiting critiques to only those people who request them for their shots. Just a thought...

For "rules," you can see my paper & light challenge rules, or those set in the salt challenge a while ago (from which I borrowed heavily) and modify them as you like.

*** Also, if participants do not have access to a web server, I am willing to host, for a limited time, a limited number of

slejhamer,

Wow, what a response. Thank you for offering the web space, words of encouragement and advice, I really appreciate.

I am just going to wait on the responses, see if anyone is interested. The only problem is, I don't see much interest.

For the meantime, I will just keep shooting and learning my camera.

BTW, getg3 put me up to this...LOL

ArabAdmiral,

Well, we will see. There are a few really good and technical people on this site that I feel would be more and qualified to judge the photos. We could use a voting system which more people might like.

For now, we will just wait for the responses.

I did not initiate this. I just asked Niloligist to post pictures, no contest, no competition! I think most of us (including myself) are still learning how to use our new toys and get the optimum results. That is why we all come to this forum. By posting our pictures somebody from this forum can help us to improve our skills.

DanyaL,

Sounds great, glad to hear that. Now, we must come up with a topic/subject.

I will pick the catagories and we choose. Here is an idea of what it would look like. I think we should go with the voting system. We vote on the catagory, then we vote on the winners, first, second and third.

Let me reiterate, there are NO PRIZES.

_______________

Here is an example of Catagories

Light

Color - Blue, Orange, Yellow, etc,...

Macro - Flowers, Insects, etc,...

Landscape

Keep the feedback coming. This is my first attempt at this and not only would I love for this to be successful, I also want this to be informative and a learning experience for all. Please keep giving me your responses and feedback.

Any suggestions are welcomed.

Excellent idea but why not skip the judging and so keep it simple? Also, how about a new "Challenge" forum rather than putting this in Share Photos?

I will join in. I would like to see a new forum area, maybe called photo challenge. Maybe if Pekka is reading this she can let us know if a new one can be added just for the challenge.
