YES I would want to have a go at a competition like that
NO I am not interested at all in such a competition
Well It can be if I can get enough interest I am willing to handle it for one month to see how it goes.
There are apparently some shy members or members lacking confidence in there photographic abilities such that they don't feel able to enter an open competition in case they look silly which is understandable.
There have been talks of comps limited to certain criteria such as beginner/newbie but that would be impracticable to realistically manage, so I took a look at it a different way.
What if there was a competition where the entries where posted without anyone ever knowing who had made the entry as they would be posted off the forum all entries would be stripped of identifying exif and any logos etc prior to being posted.
The winner would be selected by open vote and only then would the name of the winning entrant be announced no other entrants names would be made public and only I would know who they are.
So as not to have all the competitions starting and finishing together it would have a different start day.
If any things this has any mileage please vote above.
No need to reveal that you are even interested to anyone else as its a secret ballot.
If there is sufficient level of interest then I will sort out how to make it work.
If this is one for...
The League Of Extraordinary Photographers
A Secret Competition For Secret Practitioners
Of The Photographic Art
Secret Methods And Technquies
To Ordinary Mortals
...then I couldn't possibly consider entering such a thing.

Sounds like a great idea.
If you did run one, I'd enter, but t would enter either way you wouldn't need to worry about my exif as I seem to be a dab hand at losing all that data without even trying lol
Lol, only just noticed nomads post, nice
Surely ALL comps are voted on merit and nothing else
