Photo Contest Proposal..

So I know we have alot of people who love their cars and often come up with some pretty trick shots of their car. We also have alot of others who are pretty skilled photographers..

In the car forum I lived on prior to this would have a set topic for a photo contest every 5 weeks or so. One would be a night shot, the next would be reflection, in traffic, work places, seasonal, car washes, restricted areas, etc.

No limit to what you can post as far as a picture and your interpretation of the topic. Im sure that other car sites have something like this as well, but I figure it would be a great feature here..

Everyone who has a pic for that topic submits them by the set date, anyone who doesnt..doesnt get in. All the pics are posted with the persons username, with a poll. Whoever gets the most votes.. wins.

Great thing about is that it is ALL about your creativity.. it doesnt matter what car you have and how good your photo skills are. Granted it would probally help you get some more votes with a better looking car, but each contest is different and always interesting!

All photos must have VERY MINIMAL photoshoping and a copy of the original photo could be requested if everyone believes you PSed the hell out of it. Limited as far as very slight shadow/highlighting, photofilters, rendering, etc.

..I could go on and on and just wanted to see if everyone would be interested. On my other forum, there tends to be between 8-20 entries each time.. I would be willing to bet that we would have double that! Everyone could submit the photos to me and I will be in charge of creating the thread/poll each time..

Thoughts?

Re: Photo Contest Proposal..

Yea.. I will make a thread with the first topic and date in multimedia. I want to make sure I pic a good topic that everyone will be interested in and capable of because it is winter in some parts right now and super nice in others..

It wont have a picture in it at first.. but hopefully the mods will understand, leav it and this will blow up pretty quick. I think it will be PERFECT here..

That can be one of the later topics.. naked chicks, with your car. Would have to go down in the Black Hole though..
