How does this photo contest work?
This person is doing a kids/baby contest. Those who want to enter, send in their favorite picture of their kid, (I assume in the inbox). The photographer will add all the entries in it's own album, then the parent have to get everyone they know to become a fan of the photography page and vote for the persons picture. A person can only vote on the same picture once, otherwise it'll get disqualified, and professional photos will be pulled as well. If the votee doesn't 'fan' the page, the vote doesn't count.
In the past 4 months, I've been asked by 3 people on my friends list to vote on their kids picture so they can will the photo contest! (I think to myself... ummm - you know I am a photographer right?????)
(each request is for a different photographer's contest.)
These contests seems to be becoming more and more popular (In my area anyways). And they always seem to be run by newbies and those that look like they pick up their camera and shoot without a clue, and slap a ...Name... Photography watermark on the pictures they post.
