Things Are About To Get Even Better Around Here
As I mentioned in the high perspective weekly theme announcement, we are now ready to introduce another change to the format. I know change can be scary, but these are good changes! There’s nothing to fear here. In fact, we’ve been listening to all your feedback over the past few months and putting our heads together to discover ways we can make things even better for you.
The primary change is the way we will be choosing the winners. Previously, winners were chosen based on how many likes and comments they received. However, since some of the entries were migrated posts and already had a high ranking, it was hard for new posts to compete with only a week to catch up with the posts which had several years to collect likes.
With this in mind, we will now be hand selecting the winners. The judges panel will consist of Tiffany and various photographers from the editorial team. To make sure things stay unbiased, Ben will not be sitting on the judges panel. Rather, his role will be to inspire and help you create incredible photos.
We also plan on bringing some special guest judges from the platform and photography industry on-board occasionally to keep things interesting and help you get your photos in front of a wider audience. Cool right?!
Did We Miss Something?
If you have any suggestions on how we can continue to improve our weekly themes, remember, I’m only an email away. Of course, you can always reach me over on the platform as well--just drop me a private message.
If you have requests for a specific theme you’d like to see us cover, you can also reach out to us on the new weekly theme request line over in the forums. You can find it here.
These new changes will take effect beginning December 19th, 2016. Please let us know what you think. As always, we're looking forward to seeing your entries.
