no. say the topic is water. you go out and take a good pic with your truck and water and submit it and vote on them. theres a million things you can do like bridges, work, sports, your hobby, sunset.

Sounds like fun. But it would be nice if there were 2 categories. ie. Clean Shots and Photoshops

The quality of the picture is only a little part of it, most of the time on RPS its one by how the picture is setup (location, framing, etc)

Tell you what...If Zach gets this set up, I will throw in a Remote Start/Alarm system as a grand prize. Maybe we can do a monthly winner, and then at the end of the year the grand prize winner gets notified.

Install will be up to the winner, but if you are out in my area, we can install it here.

CJ, you need to be setup as a vendor! WE have a weak vendor section and what is required is minimal

I think a month is too lon between contests. I was thinking weekly or every 2 weeks. There doesn't have to be a prize so to say, just that the winner gets to choose the next topic. I'd also like the picture to have to be taken the week of the contest, not using old pictures. But thats just how I invision it.

I vote bi-weekly with the prize being the ability to choose the next topic. That will be extreamly sweet!

Yeah. I think we should do it the way RPS does it in the Snapshots Challenge. The contests last 2 weeks each. Week 1 would have a winner, and then Week 2 would start. The week 1 winner picks the topic of Week 3, and then week 2's winner chooses the topic of Week 4, and on and on... That make sense? I might give it a shot.

Zach, I'm on here all day long as well, I'd be up for helping in anyway if necessary..
