For this March we introduced two important changes in our competition: The competition is now split up into 4 categories, and the photos are uploaded only at the end of the submission period. At first we were a bit afraid that the late uploading would give us less public response, but this turned out not to be an issue, since submissions and overall participation have never been as high as this month: we recieved a new record number of 180 photos from 32 photographers!
The new system allows us to organise the photos much easier, but there is also one drawback: the public cannot see how many photos have been already submitted per category. We decided therefore for the next competition, to constantly display and update the number of submitted photos on our blog and on our facebook page. This way participants will be able to see which category is in need of more submissions, and therefore send photos specifically for those categories, which will in return increase their chances of winning.
There are many stunning photos now in the gallery... enjoy them and don't forget to vote with the voting sheet here below!
