I want to give another shout out for June contest entries because I probably confused some people that tried to enter the contest when I put of the contest announcement post last Monday. For 10 or 12 hours last Sunday and Monday the email@example.com email address didn’t exist because after the blog was moved last month I forgot to set the contest email address up at the new hosting site. Duh! Everything is working like it should now.
For those not familiar with this series of monthly competitions take a look at the Contest page that describes all the rules and the whole contest process. For a look at previous monthly winners and all the yearly winners go to the best-of-the-best page (on the top menu bar click “Featured”).
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 June is “Large interior adjoined space”, and we will be accepting only photos with that theme until June 15. The winner will be picked by the jury between June 16 and June 23. The contest is anonymous. That is, no one knows who submitted the photos (except me) until the jury has chosen a winner. Once a winner is chosen the names and the number of points the jury awarded to each entrant is posted on each photo.
As usual the submitted images are available for viewing and discussion 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 use the great new Flickr Apps available on tablets and SmartPhones. I had to take down the widget that I used to have on the left side-bar that displayed the contest entries. I have to find a new flickr widget to use for that.
