SUBMISSIONS ARE CLOSED -- VOTE NOW through 13 FEB 2010

VOTING CRITERIA


You're the judge and jury for our contest.

Vote for the photo

1) That best exemplifies the theme (complies with the theme subject and description. If the theme is "Cats" and there are no cats in the photo, don't vote for it.) Don't rely on us, solely, to remove off-topic photos. Use your own discretion.

2) That best demonstrates quality photographic technique and execution

3) That best demonstrates creativity and artistry

4) That you like the best or that connects with you most; keeping in mind the criteria above.

Please remember -- It's not enough for a photographer to find the subject based on the theme requirements; the subject should be photographed in a style and technique that elevates the photo to a quality level worthy of your vote.

VOTING


3 votes per person. (1 photo # = 1 vote)
Any member can vote.
Cannot vote for your own photo.
Each vote worth points (1st = 5 pts; 2nd = 2 pts; 3rd = 1 pt)

TO VOTE: Post a comment with the numbers of the photos for your first, second and third place choices, in order of preference.

Incomplete votes will not be counted.
