Online photography resource Strobist.com has launched the Strobist Photos of the Year contest. Winners, who will be announced on the last five days of 2007 (that will be Dec. 27-31), will be chosen from the photos in the Strobist Flickr Pool. If your photos are there already, youâ€™re in for the contest. If not, then maybe thereâ€™s still time to join the Pool.
David Hobby of Strobist.com says he will choose 10 semifinalists between now and December 18th. From there, Seattle-based photographer Chase Jarvis will choose the five finalists.
Photos will be chosen based on overall impact, use of off-camera lighting, creativity and quality of the lighting information in the caption.
There will be five prizes to be awarded, including a Canon G9 top-of-the-line compact camera. The other prizes will be revealed soon.
