      Good idea, there seems to be a few people on here who enjoy photography so it should be popular.I would probably submit one or two.

      I think this is a great idea. Hopefully Murdock could run this for us?

      I may submit a few as well, as I have had my camera for months and hardly used it.

      The judge cannot enter.

      But if I am the judge I may let you in.

      So you can enter
      Maybe the judges could be the members, each entry could be voted on by members who have not submitted but only one vote each.

      Good idea.
      But I think those who have submitted a photograph
      could also have one vote.

      Yeah, I thought about that but then that vote could be used to swing things if they were winning. Maybe I'm being too cynical as its only a bit of fun.

      One of the rules could be you cannot vote for yourself. If the vote was done open, then you could see who has voted for who.

      Nice idea...I'd definitely take part.

      I haven't signed in for a while, so I'd like to say Happy New Year to you all too

      I like it! I have about 3500 photos that would work.

      Perhaps you should limit the photos entered to those taken during the period of the competition, e.g. Jan - Mar, Apr - Jun etc. That would also roll around the seasons.

      Regards,

      Felix
