Weekly contests

I would like to have weekly contests in the group and have them be open theme, most of the time. What do you all think? It would be worth while as long as there is plenty of participation.

Feedback?

I enjoy participating in contests, most of which are themed so an open them one sounds like a great idea.

Yes i would love a contest a week maybe you could open another form for where people can put in there ideas for the theme ?

Or maybe the person that wins the contest gets to chose next weeks theme?

Do they have to be new photos, or can we rummage through our archives?

I'm thinking we'd need to have two weekly contests. An open theme and a themed contest, running side by side. What do you think?
harrymgord PRO 8 years ago
Yes yes yes Go i want some competition as soon as possible :D
harrymgord PRO 8 years ago
i got a good theme what about spot light on nature so like where the spot light is on a flower or a animal ?

How about one week a themed competition and the next an unthemed one - two competitiions a week might be a bit much. Just my two cents.

that's a good idea. (Both Harry and Sylvia).

One thing you may want to consider is I believe this is destined to be a very popular group, and if you're the sole administrator, you could quickly become overwhelmed; so maybe for starters, just go with one contest/week. Keep it fun for yourself, as well as the rest of us.

Yeah Roger, thought of that too. One a week would be it I'd say
I am all in favour, also to make it manageable, it
may pay to restrict it to 1 image per member.
admin
♞Jenny♞ PRO 8 years ago
Oh yeah. Definitely just one image. I'd want to set the whole thing up like Karma's contests used to be.
harrymgord PRO 8 years ago
When will the first contest start ?
admin
♞Jenny♞ PRO 8 years ago
I'm not sure yet Harry. I have a few more things to set up before it can happen and I'd like to see more discussion here first, too.

I have a lot of things coming up soon, like in Sept I will be gone for 3 weeks, so nothing can happen then anyway.

But soon I hope

Ok i cant wait till it begins :D
exciting suggestion [deleted] 8 years ago
i like the idea of contests each week. i imagine you won't even need to have a formal structure like alternating weeks. rather, just announce the format and let the people go crazy. that way, if a theme doesn't stick out one week, you wouldn't feel pressured to come up with one; simply make it an open theme for the week.

Sounds fun Jenny.

Might have to wait a few weeks
but I'm still game.

As my job comes closer to the end
the boss is demanding more of my time.

how about the theme being there is no theme...?
admin
♞Jenny♞ PRO 8 years ago
hmm, but then technically Pete, wouldn't there still be a theme?
yelovet00 PRO 8 years ago
Well this contest thing doesn't seem to be taking off, perhaps you need to go with an easy theme everyone can relate too, to get it going. Can I suggest, "American Indians in full ceremonial dress, riding antique John Deere tractors through the streets of New York City" ? If you think that would be too plebian you can dress it up a little....

LOL, Cory, that sounds like a great idea to get this party started!!!

I'm just kind of holding off, but I guess I'd better get something going, huh?

I'm thinking, maybe this Friday having a contest start, with entries allowed to be posted until Sunday night, say by 9 PM Pacific Time and have the theme be "Furry Friday Friends" Animals, of course. How does that sound??
Romair PRO 8 years ago
I've got a couple furry critters in my archives, so I'm all for it.
labels_30 8 years ago
I have a few furry animals in my stream as well, sounds good.
harrymgord PRO 8 years ago

♞Jenny♞ PRO 8 years ago
Well, I didn't get it going this last Friday and I can't do it this Friday, because I am leaving mid week of the following and will be gone most of Sept. Hmmm, maybe we could get a short one going this week? if enough people participate?
