Hellooo!

HannahPeach and I played around with the idea of having a series of photography contests to get people out there shooting and to possibly bring out some creativity that we know the community possesses. We decided to start this photography contest, with voting done by the users here. If there are enough people interested in taking part in this, we might have this be a reccuring thing.

When you say "Black and White" do you mean that the photo should be 100% desaturated or that the subject should black and white themed?

100% desaturated, like the photo in the main post!

Updated the main post to make it more clear. Thanks for the questions!

Flickr is a lot easier to manage from our POV and also a lot prettier. It also provides the exif data, which is useful for other photographers and to see the date the photo was taken.

I hope you understand and can take the time to register for a flickr account to enter :)

I'd like to participate in this contest too :) The photo is already submitted to the group album.

Flickr does dicrease image quality :( Imgur does better job with it or can i set up image quality in flickr?
Edit: Flickr quality is fine its just the preview quality is downgraded.
