John, I think I may have to reword it Sat-Fri What happens is that only threads till Fri. will be considered, because Team APF will look through those on Sat and Sun for the Consideration. But I guess we can include Sat and Sun threads for next week's POTW. Great addition.
For many of you that have been waiting to see the POTW implemented, well, now is the time.
Starting next week the POTW judges will start evaluating, recommending, and voting on photos to be recognized as the Photo Of The Week.
There will be two photos every week that will be honored as the POTW. One for the Aquatic category, and one for the General category.
This is not a competition. The POTW committee will select the photo in each category to be recognized for excellence. Every week we will have a new photo named as POTW for General and Aquatic captures.
Posters that include a photo in the following forums will be considered:
Aquatic DSLR and P&S Gallery
Again I will repeat, this is not a competition. The POTW judges will evaluate and vote on everyday posts that include images that are the best posted photos for the week. They will use the normal criteria that we all feel are important to make excellent photos. The judges will look for basic technical skills, composition, exposure, and difficulty as their requirements for scoring.
Photos selected to be recognized as "Photo Of The Week" will be displayed in the POTW area for one week. Every Monday a new photo will be posted to replace the previous week's selection. Each "Photo Of The Week" will be uploaded to APF server for long term viewing purposes.
If a selected photo's owner does not wish to have their image displayed or uploaded to APF server, please contact phisphorphun via private message with your request.
Good luck and continue to share your images for us all to enjoy.
