Looking for group moderators. Wanna help? Flickrmail me :)

You can add your Best of 2009 to the pool. Tag with COTC:bestof2009

Group Description

Cream of the Crop - Please Read the Rules. Get yours at flagrantdisregard.com/flickr

What goes in the Cream of the Crop Pool?

Your best pictures. Every member can submit one picture in each of THREE basic categories.

Please see the Rules Page for a full explanation of the group's posting rules.

Images can be submitted to the Cream of the Crop Pool in the following categories:

1. Most "favorited" (according to flickr) (add tag COTC:mostfavorited )
2. Most "interesting" (according to flickr)(or 2nd most interesting if it equals #1) (add tag COTC:mostinteresting )
3. Your "personal favorite" that isn't covered by #1 or #2 (add tag COTC:personalfavorite )

You can also add an extra submission on top of these 3, your Best Of 2009! (add tag COTC:bestof2009 )

Only one image per member in each category will be accepted. That is a total of 4 (four) images per member. (Unless you joined the group a long time ago and your Best of 2007 and Best of 2008 is already in the pool, it makes 7 then)

PLEASE NOTE: To allow for the fact that the group originally had different submission guidelines, the group is set to a total of 7 images per member. If you already have 7 images, you may need to remove an image from one of the no longer used categories to add another.

If you are a new member, you are limited to the current categories only (e.g. you can't add a photo tagged "COTC:bestof2005").
