We have made some changes to the way we display photo contest images. We thank the many of you who contacted us with suggestions on how to make the contest more fair and beneficial for all. Our intention in offering a photo contest is to create a community where you can all show off your images, receive feedback, and most of all have some fun! As of April 1st: close

- Contest images will be shown randomly on this page. With the entries all jumbled up, no one has an advantage of being displayed more often than another.
- "Recent Comments" will no longer be shown on this page. To view comments for an image, you will need to go to each individual image.
- Sorting by Highest Rated and Most Comments is no longer available, as those sorts are not applicable to a photo contest.
- Sorting by Most Votes will be available in the archives AFTER voting is completed and the voting has closed for the month. No one will know the winners or leaders until the contest is over.

We would also like to address comments and the rating system. As you comment on an image, we encourage you to be polite, mindful, and constructive. If you challenge others' points of view and opinions, do so respectfully and thoughtfully ... without insult and personal attack. Always act with respect for your fellow ifp3 members. All comments are reviewed, and inappropriate comments will be removed at our discretion.

As for rating images, if you feel an image is a 1 star or 2 star, then give it that rating, but state WHY (How could the image be improved? How could it be made into a 4 or 5 star image?). Likewise, if you give an image a 5 star rating, provide the photographer with a reason (What did they do that was great? What elements makes the image excellent?). We can all benefit through the sharing of ideas and experience. We are providing this community/contest for YOU! Please enjoy it and we hope that these changes will help make this contest what it was originally intended to be, fun!
