www.thephotographyforums.com goes live

Copied here also so that everyone get chance to see what is going on for you all...



There has been a little talk of things going on behind the scenes recently; the admin team has been working hard on a few things but mainly on a funky, clean and easy to use front end to the site.

Today we are proud, and glad to announce that www.thephotographyforums.com is now live.

This is the basis for the site and will continue to be developed and added to as time allows. We have many more ideas, articles and suggestions (some of which our members have kindly offered) that will be added, but if anyone would like to contribute directly they can contact any of the admin team through the contacts section or via the forums Private Message system.

You will notice that we have now created a free gallery for our members to use. If you would like to take advantage of this offer, please contact EosD via EMAIL at eosd@thephotographyforums.com stating your forum name and a password that you would like to use for the gallery access. An account will be set up for you and all login details will be provided in the return email. The space is intended to offer you a place to display your own work and be able to link to our forums to receive praise, critique and words of admiration from the other forum members. Obviously you can also offer friends and families a link to view your photos too.

People were asking for a theme fortnight or weekly theme and although those suggestions were great, we thought that a friendly monthly photography competition would offer more benefits. Unlike many other competitions around the web we would like everyone to be involved at every stage, so basically we would like it to be a competition for everyone, run by everyone and judged by everyone. The only thing the admin will do is administer the gallery section, receive the votes (by email), oversee it to try to keep it fair, and announce the winners.

Each round will be open for submissions for four weeks, after which all entries will be displayed anonymously in a specially created gallery. Once displayed, forum members will have seven days in which they can judge the photos, during this time the named admin will accept votes from members via the forum's PRIVATE MESSAGE system on your favourite three photos. Donít vote for your own as we will be checking and if we find anyone cheating we will remove their entry from that round of the competition. It is only for fun and to learn so please keep the spirit of the competition in mind.

The top three from each round will be announced in the forums and the winner will get the honour of choosing the theme for the next round. The gallery will be updated to show which photos belong to which members. At this point the next round will be open and we would like to have critique and comments posted in the forums on all the entries from the round that has just finished. This is where all of the entrants will gain most, from the advice, critique and learning of how their work staked up against everyone elseís. It will also keep us all busy during the long wait till the end of the next round. The success of this depends entirely on the forum members, so your efforts and contributions are essential. Hopefully it will grow and develop into one of the webs most fun, helpful and successful photography competitions.

With the website going live, we are pleased to offer you a chance to have a little bit of free promotion. If you have your own photography based website and would like us to feature it with four or five others, drop us a line to tell us a little about yourself, your photography and your motivation. Include your website link as well, and we will then display it along with a few others, changing them as time allows.

Finally, I know we have said it before but we want the site to belong to you, the members. The admin are happy to do the work whenever possible but without the members it means nothing, so if you do have any ideas or suggestions that you would like to see implemented, drop us a line and we will do our best to get them in place.

With the front going live the admin are going to actively promote the site via search engines and all other means, we would like an active friendly community. If you like what we have here and what we are all working towards, you can help by mentioning us to your friends and families and by putting links to us on your websites.

Thanks
The admin team
