i think we may have tried this before but it didnt go far. now that are community is growing maybe we need to try something like this again so im snagging an idea from another forum im on.

since winter is coming to an end, and i have barley used my camera, im sure others are in the same boat, i need some motivation to get out and shoot something. any one interested in doing a contest, we post a topic, 1 or 2 weeks to submit a photo, then we all vote for the one we like the best? the winner picks the next topic.

any takers? topic ideas?

Sounds fun.. I'm game!

Although... no calling an end to winter yet! I still need a few more hundred miles on my sled before I'm ready to lock it in the trailor for another year! lol

You can count me in, I would also like to see a weekly or biweekly photo assignment, there would be no judgeing or voting, between the two I think it would maybe get some people out and shoot who are maybe feeling a little cabin fever, just a thought.

this is just for fun voting, basically it is a biweekly assignment, just the winner of the public vote picks the next topic.

This is a great idea! I have hardly picked up my camera this winter, and I know this would help get me out there. :D

I understand about just for fun contest and I think it's a great idea and plan to participate, thanks for starting it.
I only mentioned about a weekly or biweekly assignment because some people might not like to enter contests and on a assignment thread you can post as many photos as you like ( well maybe limit 1 a day) and included how you took the shot and any other techical info that might help others.
