For those not familiar with this series of monthly competitions take a look at the Contest page that describes all the rules and the process. For a look at last years monthly winners and all the yearly winners go to the best-of-the-best page (on the top menu bar click “Featured”). There was a period between 2008 and 2011 that we didn’t run the contest in it’s present form.
This contest is a juried contest. The list of jurors is on the contest page. The primary purpose of the contest is being recognized by your peers in the real estate photography industry.
The theme for February is Living room or Family Room shots and we will be accepting entries through February 15. The winner will be picked by the jury between Feb 15 and Feb 23.
I’d like to point out rule #13 on the contest page since there have been some issues with this rule where company owners submit a photo that was shot by one photographer of many in their company. What rule #13 says is I’m not going to accept entries from anyone but the photographer that shot and processed the photo. I know, there’s no way I can verify that but I’m going to trust what you say. This contest is intended to give recognition to individual photographers, not companies.
As usual the submitted images are available for viewing in the PFRE Photographer of The Month flickr group. I post them there as they are submitted. Also for people with devices that won’t display Flash the left-sidebar widget displays the submitted images in a non-Flash format. This sidebar display lags the flickr group display by several hours.
