Our popular Facebook Photo of the Month contest – where people submit their themed India images and users vote for their favourite – is spreading its reach.
Following requests from followers, we’ve decided to increase the ways that people can take part. We took a break in November to plan some improvements, and this is what we’re now doing.
This widens the pool of photos, gets more people involved and increases the interest in India photography.
So how does judging work? It’s still decided by you.
After the submission deadline passes each month (roughly around the middle) we’ll be putting up a shortlist of three or four photos – with links to their owners – and asking you to pick a winner using our neat polling system.
And while the contest is mainly for fun and inspiration, we’ll still be sending a £10 Amazon voucher to the chosen winner as a token.
We’re looking forward to spreading this out and welcoming some new participants. If you have any queries, just ask.
This month’s contest
This month our theme is simply Goa. We wanted to mark the arrival of several new Goa homestays with something special, so we’re looking for one photo from you that says something you like about India’s top tourist spot.
On Facebook? Just post your image to the wall as usual
On Flickr? Add your image to the Photo of the Month group
On Twitter? Tweet the image and include our Twitter name @indianhomestays plus the hashtag #indiaphoto
The deadline for entries is 14 December 2009.
