A word about the contest galleries

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 (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.

Life and wildlife in Madagascar
For years before I started college, I knew I wanted to spend a semester studying abroad, but I wasn't sure where. By my junior year at Brandeis, I made up my mind to travel somewhere off the beaten path, and, of course, Madagascar is pretty far off the beaten path for someone like me....
An essay about Rebirth Workshops
Now that it's been several months since I returned from a week-long Rebirth Workshop in Mississippi, I'm happy to look back and provide an overview of what we did that made it such an intense experience for me as a photographer....
Photography apps for your phone
Thinking of ditching your separate camera and moving to just using your phone for all your photos? What apps should you go for? Instagram made headlines recently after being bought by Facebook for $1 billion. What does it include, and what else is out there?...
