ODC Monthly Photo Challenge Winners

Monthly Photo Challenge Winners

     Our Doll Community has a monthly photo challenge with a theme for each month. Winning pictures are selected by popular vote. The theme is chosen by the winner of the previous month. The challenge is to create a new picture or post a recent picture that fits the theme. The winning contest pictures are displayed here.
Note: This page shows the current year only. Scroll down for prior year winners.

     The large picture below shows the current winning picture. The index below that presents the winning pictures for the calendar year. They are arranged from January to December. Right-click on any picture to open a larger image in a new tab or window. (You must be logged in to view images that are in the "attached" picture directory.)

     Under each index picture is the name of the month for the challenge that each picture won. Winners are selected at the end of the previous month; therefore the “January” winning picture was entered in the previous December challenge.

   Click on the name of the month to go to the challenge where the picture was entered.
   Click on the winner’s name to go to the album of that person (or doll).

     “Not Selected” means that challenge has not yet occurred or was extended for another month.

     Note: The alignment of picture, month, and winner in the Year sections will be 'compressed' for those using the following Themes: Day Relax, CurveBlack, and X-Mas. Other Themes will show the proper alignment. See Changing your theme.

Very cool, Noq!  8)

Will this be made into a sticky, or did you have something else in mind?

I have always thought the most current winner should be at the top?

If all the photographers have high res versions of their pictures and agreed to be featured, this would make a great calendar for ODC to sell.

     I inverted the order of the years, but not the months. I thought inverting the months might be too distracting. I have also replaced the Horizontal Rule <--> with other dividers to separate the years.

This seems the appropriate thread to put this post.

I see some discussion of 'How to vote' in the Feb / Mar 2014 photo challenge thread.

Personally I don't like the 'send a pm' solution and I speculate that it might limit voters of which there are no great numbers (guessing again).

Would it not be easier for members to vote if the poll facility was used? - I mean, tick the boxes of the three photos one chooses.

OK, I know this would mean that a photo wins by 'number of hits score' rather than 'number of points score', but what the heck maybe that is done anyway by some.
The downside could be that occasionally everyone would be able to see a 'null point' photo but again, what the heck, at least the member participated which itself is a big  :thumb: in my book. And it could give a boost to those who did participate but did not make the final three by the knowledge that at least someone voted for them.

So what do you guys and dolls think?
Ah Love, could thou and I with fate conspire to grasp this sorry state of things entire. Would not we shatter it to bits, and then, remould it nearer to the hearts desire.

muzza,

     As with all the rules for these challenges, it is up to the person running the challenge as to how votes are collected and scored. As you mentioned, some pictures receive no votes at all. This could lead to bad feelings, which is why most of us use the PM method.

     No system is perfect. There are no 'real' prizes for these challenges except for that of recognition. With about 160 galleries here at ODC, plus those that have their galleries off-site, one would think that these challenges are flooded with pictures. The simpler the rules, the more we might get people involved in this.

Muzza,

The way that I score a contest is a points system. A first place vote gets 3 points, second place 2 points, third place 1 point. I've scored several of these contests, and this seems to work best, as sometimes we will get surprisingly few votes. It just seems to end up with less tie scores. If we get a lot of votes, the difference in points between each place gets wider.

Is it perfect? Probably not, but with limited voting and just a few pictures, so long as it is applied consistently it's as fair as I can make it.
