Our planet has nearly completed its orbit around the Sun once again and if you’re a regular JMG-Galleries reader that means one thing… it is time to kick off the 8th 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 328 participants (see Best Photos of 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008 and 2007). Around this time of year people start to ask if I’d be running this project again. The answer clearly is always 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 2014.
How to Participate (Read Carefully)
- Review & select your best photos from 2014.
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 2014.
- Complete the form below by Saturday JANUARY 3th 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.
Thank you for taking the time again to organize this Jim 🙂
Yes thanks a lot Jim for doing this each year. All the best for 2015..!
I know this is going to sound like whining….though it’s not intended to be so. I’m just curious if a G+ ‘album’ with a G+ post linking to same would be submissible?
It really is a terrific project you’re providing for the community, and I fully understand you need to keep things as simple as possible to minimize the amount of work involved for you. I’m just curious what technical hurdles you encounter with services like G+….or, I’m sure others might wonder about a Facebook post.
Hi JIm…I know I’m late in submitting (I’ve participated the last few years) and I’m sorry. I thought I’d try anyway just in case you’re able to include it. Thanks so much.
