View Full Version : Judging Photo Contest

Since I dearly lack social and people skills outside of business I thought I would be more involved with stuff and those thing, oh yea people. I have volunteered and have been chosen to Judge a photo contest, not sure what I was thinking. I think the reasons I agreed to this one was it is more about the photographers having fun. They are given objects they must photograph over the length of the contest then they are submitted and we rate them 1 to 5 and the ones that are highest win prizes and there was no entry fee for those participating another reason why I chose this one. It is more for those that have interesting photos then technical skills or some predetermined artistic merit, purely subjective judging, just what I like. It ends on the 8th of August, just wish I had known before it started I would have posted it here but I just found out yesterday and it has already been going for a week and entry is closed, I may have participated rather than judged, I doubt it though since I think contests are bad for business lol. If I get any really cool ones I will see if I can get permission to post them or links to them.

sounds like fun!
so tell me, what, for you, would result in a 5 vs a 3 vs a 1?

You'll probably get a couple of really creative shots :) It'd be cool if they end up giving you permission to post.

I have no ide yet, all depends on what is submitted, I am looking more for creative and fun shots so those will get my higher votes I think. The lower ones will be anyone who takes it too serious.
