Grand opening photo contest

I’d like to celebrate the opening of Photodoto.com, a project I’ve been working on for some time, with a photo contest! Sound like fun? Even better: there are real, actual, honest to goodness prizes!


1st place: Canon Powershot SD450 5MP Digital Elph Camera with 3x Optical Zoom
2nd place: SanDisk 1 GB Ultra II CompactFlash Memory Card
3rd place: A 1-year subscription to Flickr.com, the best photo-sharing application in the world.

How to enter/Official rules

  1. Register at Photodoto.com.
  2. Submit a great photo that best represents the theme “Beginnings” to the Photodoto group at Flickr.com (by adding it to the photo pool). The photo must be taken and owned by you. You can register for a free Flickr account if you don’t already have one.
