        voting is up, here.

        I'm not starting a new one yet, as I don't think that there is enough interest to keep these going... the current project ran for 6 months and only got 5 entries, and was not a difficult subject.

        Feedback and suggestions about how to proceed from here are welcome.

          Although I can understand your disappointment that there's often no response to these projects, maybe the fact that they're in the form of contests is part of the problem? I know that adds a different layer of things for me, since I'd only want to post something that I feel could compete.

          What if, instead, they're more in the form of just ongoing projects? Kind of like the "photos from your part of the world" thread? That one still gets people contributing, and the fact that it's themed probably encourages people to contribute since they get to see what others are posting, which probably gives them ideas as to what they could do to contribute as well.

          Just a thought.

            I think that was discussed when these project began but at that point people wanted to make it more of a friendly competition, that's what got people participating originally.

            Personally, I like the idea, and would be happy to try it to see if more people would be interested. As far as I am concerned, lots of participation is what makes it fun.

              I am not gonna lie... I am just to completely lazy, and couldn't think of anything super fun for "two".

                You know, I struggled with "two" as well. There were actually tons of images I could have shot, but I wanted to knock it out of the park, you know? And get this!...I do not even own a camera. I always use the kids or my work. I think I should buy my own.

                Do you think summertime affects the entries? I know I spend more time on line during the cold months.

                  I know that personally, since my photography skills are still a work in progress, I'm somewhat intimidated by the contest form, but I love to share when it's just a theme that I feel that I can contribute to. And seeing others' work outside the contest format, as opposed to a formal judging experience is very fun, and often gives me ideas of things to try.

                        I'd be up for that. I haven't minded it being in the form of a contest, even though I don't ever think I'll win because some of the entries are just fantastic, but it's still fun to join in.

                        But, I also really like the format of "your part of the world" and like urst said, it would be interesting to see on going photo additions for a theme. You could even make the thread finite, have a date it will close so it doesn't get too huge or something. But don't stop altogether, please, morea! I've enjoyed the contest and photo threads too much!

                          Ok, I think that the idea of doing away with the contest aspect of it is worth a try.

                          I'll start a new one along the lines of the "your part of the world" thread... do you think that a month is a good run time for these?
