    I thought it might be fun to have a weekly photo contest on the forums here, open to everyone, and judged by one member. On another forum I frequent we have it set up so that the winner of the contest gets to pick the next topic and judge the entries. It's a lot of fun and I wanted to see what the general consensus was here?

    Has this been tried in the past, would anyone be interested in participating? I'll get it started if there's enough interest from the forum members!

    I don't think my skill level would be sufficient to enter any of the contests but the more opportunities I have to see the work of some of the users on this forum; I'm all for it.

    I think its a good idea. Another thing you could do is have the one user select the top 3 photos for the theme and let forum members vote for the winner in a poll.

    Yeah, that would be a great idea too! We'll see what the general consensus is for the next day or two, if it's good (and I don't get any thumbs down from the admin) I'll start the competition off with a topic.

    I would love something like this.

    Not that I'm particularly good enough to enter, but I'd certainly like to see what some of the Macrumors members can accomplish! :)

    If y'all want I can set up another assignment tonight... it's just a matter of copying/pasting code.

    Interest level?

    I dont know if anyone will like this idea but i posted this in the "Assignment 18" thread which is suppose to be the "contest" thread. I thought we should have a real monthy contest similar to this:

    Let's keep the contest thread here for clarity. Maybe you could set the guidelines for the rest of us to follow (and edit the thread title to remove the question mark). We can then keep separate the assignment from contest (since there isn't always an audience overlap.)

    I would actually suggest starting a new thread, and making it a biweekly/monthly/whatever deal.

    Perhaps title format should be similar to the assignments for easier searching? "Contest 1 - Subject (Month Year)", "Contest 1 - Subject GALLERY" (for those that don't fall w/i the time frame) and, in the future "Contest N - Subject Selection" for subject selection (if necessary).

    OK, I think that I'll start a weekly contest. Look for the thread if you're interested in participating, I think having it be a weekly thing instead of a monthly thing will help keep the contest from falling through the cracks.

    Off to decide a topic for this week!
