Re: Photo Theme of the week or Month
Photo Contest Possibility
Not to step on this threads toes in a bad way but possibly to get more involvement perhaps, if there is no objection I would like to get rid of a dozen or so flies each month by doing a photo contest!
I inherited a ton of flies awhile back and while I am sure there are many things that I could do with them they don’t tend to be flies I use or would use all that often. However they seem to be very similar to a lot of what some of you guys throw and tie on a regular basis.
The best way I can think of doing it is by having all entries submitted to me through this website if that is even possible otherwise I will provide an email.
Then I will post the pictures as they come in and at the end of the month we will have a poll to decide the winner.
Initially I thought of just having peeps post them here and then I would choose the winner, being well it my contest, but it may be more entertaining if everyone has a say in it.
I would like to at least give it a go for the month of March and see what interest we have in it, if it seems to be a good thing and we get varying members contributing then I may continue to do it during my slowest months of the year.
Rules would be as follows:
-Entries must be submitted to me
- A limit of three entries per person (which only one picture from each person will be submitted to the poll)
- Photos must follow the theme provided
- All photos must be taken during time of photo contest (unless otherwise noted)
- Winner must provide mailing address to me via PM for Prize and offering!
Let me know what you guys think and if there are any issues with me doing this?
I will entertain other ideas as well!
P.S. Though I am offering a prize of a dozen classic old school flies the idea of this is just to motivate people to get out and get active (aka taking pictures) the prize is just an added bonus.
