I did modify genuine one shoot requirement for all contests, I guess more pleasant game if you can post more. Any hints for other contests ?

Well, seeing that this subforum is called "Contests and Special Events," how about "Best Events?" Like games and sporting events, races, shows, etc? I've got many, many photos taken at air shows and auto races is why I ask. And even though I have only a very few, good sports and concert photos are always fun to look at.

I think that is fine in people , naturally if you like it separately we can start for that.

Yeah I was wondering about that. Didn't know though whether you'd go for it, given that with some shots, say of an airplane flying over or a race car buzzing past, the driver or pilot are not always visible.

Just thought of a couple more category possibilities: "Best Still Life" and "Best Abstract" (or Avant Garde if you prefer)

Still Lifes are a perennial favorite and abstracts can often be very challenging, technically -- for a photographer, at least.

I don't know if it's already mentioned but I suggest just one picture per capita.

For some of the categories, that would require considerable angst and gnashing of teeth on my part, as I try to decide which one to post. Reason why I asked Attila if more than one image could be uploaded. Since these contests are meant to entertain, and there is no remuneration involved, I personally don't see the harm in having multiple entries.

One just came to me. Ever have a mistake, or an accidental shot, that came out really nice? I have. So, how about a "Best Mistake" or "Best Accidental Shot" contest? Eh?

I don't know -- there could be some overlap between this suggestion and the "Funniest Picture" contest. What do you think?

An own category would better in my opinion, a mistake with shoots can be beauty but not funny in many cases I think.
