New Monthly Photo Challenge & E-System User Photographer of the Year

Okay, it’s time to try a different type of Monthly Photo Challenge and see how it goes. Don’t worry if you don’t like it or it seems not to be working too well, nothing is set in stone and the format can easily be changed or refined. Your feedback will be welcome, but please do give it a chance.

The idea is to have a new theme every month, from January to December, with the themes published in advance. These will be set by admin, but suggestions will be invited. Obviously we are already near the end of March so for 2017 only the competition will run for 9 months, from April to December. During the next few days I will get the April Challenge underway by starting a separate thread and setting the theme. However, ideas for the following 8 months will be most welcome and I encourage you to post your suggestions here. Please do repeat suggestions that have already been made, as the most popular will take priority.

Entrants may post one picture for each round (I may consider increasing this in the future but let’s see how things go) and all members will be encouraged to vote for the picture they think deserves to win by using the ‘Like’ button. All members are entitled to vote, regardless of whether they have entered the competition. Only one vote per person, please, so it will pay to delay placing your vote until all entries have been received. If you change your mind, simply remove your ‘Like’ and allocate it to another entry. I propose a two week voting period at the end of each round, although this is subject to change. The winner of each round will simply be the entry that received the most votes. 2nd and 3rd places will be decided in the same manner.

1st, 2nd and 3rd places will be awarded 3, 2 and 1 points respectively to carry forward to the year end and the member with the most points will be crowned E-System User Photographer of the Year.

I look forward to your comments and suggested themes for the competition.
