I've received a few emails and others have posted comments wondering why their contest entry isn't showing up in one of the three contest galleries below. The photos you upload to Flickr with the three contest tags don't show up in these galleries automatically (ah, wouldn't that be nice!). I post them manually. I build these galleries for two reasons:
a) So that your photos can be displayed in a large format on a heavily-trafficked website where lots of people can see them. Yes, Flickr has a bazillion times more traffic than Boston.com (that's the official number), but the casual browsing public is unlikely to find your photos there.
b) I want voters to be able to see the photos in large format so you can judge them better when it comes time to vote.
Alas, with more than 400 entries in this month's contest, my days of building these galleries may be coming to an end. It just takes too much time that I could be spending on Photographer of the Week features, highlighting local photo blogs, and so much more that I want to do with the site.
So this may be the last month that I build these galleries. Instead, we'll send you to the Flickr page that displays all the entries, and wait for the Final Fifty before building one of these galleries.
Meanwhile, I'm committed to posting all the entries this month, so I'll get back to it. If you want to see all of this month's entries now, go to Flickr and search on the 3 contest tags. Or just use this link:
Thanks for your patience. Time for some cocoa and Bailey's.
