It is almost time again for the Photography Forum Awards, and the entry threads for 2020 will be appearing next week in early January. It is again self nomination, and you are able to enter three photos into each category. The list of categories can be seen below, and these will become hyperlinks as the entry threads become visible on the forum, but they will all appear in the Photography Awards Forum
There will be rules in the first post of each thread, but please bear in mind:

To enter images you select up to a MAXIMUM OF THREE of YOUR OWN images that were POSTED DURING 2020 between Jan 1st 2020 to Dec 31st 2020 inclusive and submit them as entries to be voted on in the next round.
The image can be selected from all sections, eg the Weekly Challenge, etc as long as it qualifies for the section entered. (Portrait for example is for humans. Animal head shots go in animal section).

Note that an image can be submitted to only ONE SECTION so for example a mono of a nude in the mountains can be entered as a nude OR mono OR landscape.

ATTACH your entries for the section in the specific thread only, INCLUDING a link to the thread it was first POSTED DURING 2020

Images without the supporting thread link will be excluded from the next voting round as it is extremely difficult to find a particular image of someone else's from a year's worth of posts.

Please also remember NO LINKED IMAGES as these will also be excluded from entering the next round


One post per entry is recommended, up to your maximum of THREE entries, to make things simple.




If you are still confused how to enter, look at one of last year's entry threads as an example HERE

Categories:
All The Rest Image Of The Year 2020
Wildlife(Plants, Animals & Insects)Image Of The Year 2020
Sports & Action Image Of The Year 2020

Well the entry threads are now all closed, thanks to all that took the time to enter in what are difficult times. The voting threads will appear over the next week. There is one category (Fine art/glamour) that did not receive any entries this year, so this will not appear in any voting.
Three other categories attracted three or less entries, so these will not appear in the first round voting as only three go through to round two.

2020 was a very different year - one where the government took over our lives. I imagine that the last time this happened was shortly after WW2 with rationing and the terrible times shortly after that war, not just in the Britain but all over the world.

I'm feeling a tad guilty that in the 8 years I've been involved with the forum that I've not entered these annual awards but 2020 was a year that changed my life too - not for the worse, mainly for the better, but just changed it and one of the fall outs was my photography.

Thank you Brian for your continued encouragement - definitely not an easy time when so few members (including me) are not showing much enthusiasm for photography. I'm in another organisation where lack of membership involvement is very testing and detrimental to what we are trying to achieve. Good for you for ignoring the recent life changing events and trying to continue on as normal. Let's just hope that 2021 sets us back on the normal living conditions and that our cameras will be clicking away too.

Please, anyone who reads this thread, please make the effort to give your vote to every category to give those who entered their images a valued reward for winning or being runners up. There are some excellent photographs entered and they deserve as many votes as possible to show their true worth.

First round voting is now active. You will see that Fine Art/Glamour is missing as it did not attract any entries. Also missing is Most improved member, Sports, City/Street, and Wedding as these attracted three or less entries so automatically go through to the second round of voting.

PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO VOTE!

Final round voting is now active. In some of the threads where there are more than three choices, it is because there were ties in the first round. Fine Art/Glamour as previously advised, there isn't a voting thread for as there were no entries.

PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO VOTE!!!
