Out with the old, in with new. Here comes the March Photo contest.

But before I go into the details of March's contest we'd like to hear from everyone about the concept of running a number of contests throughout the year. Ie. Overall interest, suggestions as to the format, ideas for themes, whatever, let's have it.

Over to you....

Sure, I'm interested.

Each month or instance could have a category, though the occasional wide open contest might be good too. Category suggestions? Family/kids, nature, wildlife, urban paddling, winter paddling, solo travel, gourmet, night sky, and so on.

Cheers,
Bryan

At first I thought that a new category every month was a good idea but now I am having second thoughts.

One thing that I found especially nice about seeing the pictures in the February contest was that they illustrated the breadth of experiences that we get from canoeing.
...rivers, lakes, good friends, thrills, skills, scenery, family, peacefulness, solitude, beauty, day, night etc...

I think that keeping the contest wide open, at least for now, it will have a better chance to build interest.

I'm closing this thread to avoid confusion with the one I just opened, which officially announces the March contest.

Feel free to contribute suggestions to the new thread.
