Amazing how fast the year has passed, but now that we’re near the year-end it is again time to invite you to a tradition on the JMG-Galleries blog, the 7th annual best photos of the year blog project. This is by far my most popular blog project. Year over year this project has continued to increase in participation with last years participation hitting 300 participants (see Best Photos of 2012, Best Photos of 2011, Best Photos of 2010, Best Photos of 2009, Best Photos of 2008 and Best Photos of 2007). Around this time of year people start to ask if I’d be running this project again. The answer clearly is YES! 1. I love this project and I love that so many people get excited about it. 2. It’s a great way exercise to improve your photography (10 Ways to Top Your Best 20xx Photographs). So with out any further delay here is how you take part to submit your best photos of 2013.
How to Participate (Read Carefully)
- Review & select your best photos from 2013.
Note: Photo edit carefully narrowing down your results to your best 10 or 5 photos. Reference Pro Tips: Photo Editing with Gary Crabbe for pointers.
- Create a blog post on your web site or a Flickr/500px set containing your best photos from 2013.
- Complete the form below by Saturday JANUARY 4th at 11:59PM PST to take part. The following Tuesday I’ll post a link to all submitted sites and photos on my blog. Through out the week I’ll also share the results across all my social media accounts.
Spread the Word!
Feel free to spread the word of this project on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, photo forums you frequent and/or your blogs. All who are interested in taking part are invited.
