I will also need to find some judges from regular forumeers
I'd have thought the obvious judge for the proper photos would be initially be someone like DamienB { with the final choice left to the Forum members }
As for the "c*ck-ups" ........why not put a small { 128x , 256x or any other low-res .jpg option } pic on the Forum & let the members decide ?? { set the choice as a Poll }

we thought it would be nicer if the judges were regular forum users

Reguler forum members who are not professional photographers, just average people etc.

I can't decide if Damian should be excluded because he drives an Alfa or made winner out of pity for driving an Alfa. :lol:

Due to my feeble brain,the answer to this question has probably been posted elsewhere but what happened to the photo comp that was supposed to run about eighteen months ago or so and was going to have major prizes ?

I do not want this to degenerate into a slanging match about who should and should not be judges please , I have already been in discussion with IIan and others about this and felt it best if it is done in private by PMs / e-mails rather than start to cause embarrassment or anger, please dont keep debating this as it may spoil the plans and the main aim is to save 558, thanks

This one is a lot more informal, designed to be a bit of fun and offering a quick influx of money to help the cause.
We can consider a more elaborate one in the cold dark months of January and February, depending on the success of this one!

Regards,
Ian.
