Kingstonist’s Greatest Photo Contest

Kingstonist’s Greatest Photo Contest, call for submissionsIn the November 2010 and July 2011 respectively, Kingstonist successfully conducted something we like to call our Greatest Photo Contest. We sourced nominees from our fantastic, ever-growing Flickr pool, while a select few went frame to frame during week-long battles where our readers were responsible for crowning their faves. Once the dust was settled, we were pleased to announce Lito Ochotorena as our first winner, and Steve Koopman as the winner of our second contest. Given the outstanding reception, we’ve publicly vowed to make our Greatest Photo Contest a biannual event.  Therefore, it gives me great pleasure to announce our 3rd-ever, Greatest Photo Contest (December 2011 edition)!

The rules are simple. Head on over to Kingstonist’s Flickr group and upload your best images that have been taken in and around Kingston, Ontario. It doesn’t matter if they were snapped today or 10 years ago, so long as they are truly local, and honestly yours. Contestants will have until midnight on Friday, December the 2nd Saturday, December the 3rd to submit entries until their heart’s content. From there, Kingstonist’s jury will comb through the submissions and come away with a small group of select images. Last but not least comes the fun part, where we’ll once again turn to our readers to vote for their favourite photo from December 5th until the 11th.

The photog responsible for snapping the best shot will be given a $50 gift certificate for either Camera Kingston, or Kingston Frameworks, bought and paid for by Kingstonist. And for good measure, we’ll also be throwing in one of our fantastic Kingstonist tees to all those whose photos are included in next week’s poll.  So, just what would you spend your winnings on? Will you put it towards a new lens, order a nice print or finally get something framed? The choice is yours, but you have to win first. Get snapping, and get uploading!

Thanks to Nathan Rupert for the original photo.
