I'm ready to start accepting Patio, Deck or Garden Space Shots for the September 2013 PFRE photographer of the month contest. The photo to the right is last year's winner of this theme (Jason Roehner, Tempe, AZ ).
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"). Please note new rule #15: "Submissions are final. That is, once your submission has been accepted don’t ask to replace it".
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 September is "Patio, Deck or Garden Space", and we will be accepting only photos with that theme through September 15. The winner will be picked by the jury between September 16 and September 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 accepted for the contest. Also for people with devices that won't display Flash use one of the great new Flickr Apps available on tablets and SmartPhones.
Everyone submitting entries please read and follow the contest rules at the contest rules page.
