This is the "Weekly Photo Contest Master List" where every week a new photo contest is posted.
The contest are open to all MacRumors forum members and the following rules apply when submitting a photo to a contest:
  • The photographs must be your own work
  • You may only submit one photo per contest.
  • No commenting or liking photos until after the judging has taken place.
  • At the end of the competition, the judge (the previous week's winner) will choose a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place photo, providing as much feedback as possible. Apparently as emojis are challenging, their use should also include interpretation.
  • The 1st place winner will start a new thread with the topic/theme of their choice, and act as the judge for that contest. (Winner has 48 hours to create new theme, after that it defers to 2nd place).


Below is the original post that started this thread in 2015:

The "Picture threads - Photo of the Day, Assignments, Monthly Critique, Weekly Contest" is quite out of date and long so I thought it would be helpful to do one just for the Weekly Photo contests. If the winner of each weekly would add their new contest to this post, I think it would be fairly easy to maintain.

I think from Jan 2015 is a good place to start but if anyone wants to add 2014, that's fine by me. (I hope our non-US participants don't mind my date naming convention!)

Brilliant idea and thanks for taking the time to do this, @E3BK; it should serve as a most useful reference source and primer.

Nicely done. That's a great reference point for everyone as I can never remember if a subject has been chosen before. Good work :)

Agree absolutely. Very useful, especially if one needs to tweak a theme from earlier.

OK!! The mods turned this post into a Wiki so it can be updated by anyone with the creds to do so. I guess they don't normally allow Wiki's in the DP sub-forum but they found a way to do it for this one :). Maybe they can turn it into a sticky also!

A sticky would be a great idea. Good job on the thread.

There was no contest in your line "June 12 - 17: unknown". There was a larger than usual gap as one of the runners up had to step in. Tried to modify it but couldn't see how.

Hope that helps your timeline! :)

You should just be able to hit edit just like you can do on your own posts. Does that not work?

Having read that this is a wiki, - again, a terrific idea - I also thought to look for an "edit" button but couldn't find it.

I daresay once the Mods have been notified, it will make a welcome appearance before too long.

Thanks @arn !! See the first post's been turned into a Wiki. It's our new WeeklyWiki!!! :) Still no edit button though. Do you have to give each person permission E3BK?

@Ish - there's nothing I can do on my end. the DP sub-forum doesn't usually have wiki's but @maflynn was able to turn it into one for me. But that may be why it's still not editable by others here as I'm positive you all have the credential to modify wiki's in other subforms.

Up to date again ...

I try to check in on it to update but glad we are still a team effort! Maybe we should add a line to the Weekly Contest rules for the winner to add their contest to the master list?

Why not ? Throw it out to the masses and see if there's agreement .
