#ygkChallenge: Calling All Photographers!

Kingstonist's Greatest Photo Contest, photo callWelcome to Kingstonist’s weekly challenge, dare, resolution or whatever you prefer to call it. Each week we establish a new and ambitious community goal, encouraging our readers, followers, friends and families to step out of their comfort zones and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. Consider this your official and personal invitation to join us in completing a small but meaningful achievement. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston a slightly better place to live, work and play. And of course, we also hope that you will feel proud of your contribution and achievement.

This week’s challenge encourages you to:

Submit your best photos to our latest photo contest. Twice a year Kingstonist challenges local shutterbugs to enter their best photos of the Limestone City in our two week-long Greatest Photo Contest.  The format hasn’t changed much since we ran our first photo contest, and the submission process couldn’t be easier. Head on over to Kingstonist’s Flickr group and start uploading however many photos you want to be considered for our upcoming Greatest Photo Contest, June 2014 edition. It doesn’t matter if they were snapped today or 10 years ago, so long as they are truly local, and honestly yours. Hopeful contestants will have until midnight on June 13th to submit until their heart’s content. From there, Kingstonist’s seasoned jury will carefully comb through the submissions we’ve received since our last Greatest Photo Contest and come away with a small group of finalists. Last but not least comes the fun part, where we turn to our readers and friends to vote for their favourite photos from June 23rd to July 6th. With prizes and bragging rights to join the elite list of past winners (including: Lito Ochotorena, Steve Koopman, Urban Ear Photography 1 and 2, Hung Q. Mai, Moonball, and Steve Brule) on the line, we hope you’ll join in the fun and take part!

Sign up and commit to completing this week’s challenge by commenting below with an “I’m in“, “challenge accepted“, “en garde” or something along those lines.
