    competition idea

    What about a prized competition where all who enter pay pal 1/$1 or whatever small fee winner takes all, randomly select a judge / acquire a guest judge from magazines, press, nikon, mods etc, for the finalists obtained via the usual process, we could maybe have 4 a year or more with/without topics.
    Nikonites could even acquire some low level sponsor prizes (vouchers/ cloths etc)

    I think this will give us some real intensive to spend time on getting a really good shot and post process for those who do.



    Thoughts?

    Too much involvement/maintenance/mess for volunteers, IMO, plus the potential for hurt feelings, claims of favoritism and the lot. Lots of "challenge" oriented photo sites out there though, for those so inclined.

    I like the way we roll with our challenges being more friendly and casual.

    My .02, anyway. Worth about .000000000135 when it all boils down.

    I think it's about learning photography, and a few dollars prize hardly seems any significant point of it. Instead more of a serious distraction, all downside, IMO.

    crikey far more negativity than I expected but that's why why it's a forum.., my reason is it would be nice to win a prize now n then, and this was my idea of funding it maybe even. once a year Christmas prize? and of course it could help a charity somewhere along the lines..
