how about having a monthly photo comp, 1 photo only per person to be entered, must be fishing related,so could be fish,fisherman,tackle,not just scenery etc, hopefully we could get henry gilbey or have a poll to choose a winner based on composition etc as opposed to just the largest fish, this hopefully could lead to us all learning how to take better photo's in the long run.

I think the winner each month could be our front page pin up for the following month, lets keep them recent if possible, obviously its harder this time of year but there should always be a few every month. Maybe with anglers name, tackle and general area if they dont mind, great idea.

Blimmin good idea I reckon. If we can all at least have a little go then perhaps we'll all leanr to make a bit more of our cameras?

Fantastic idea!

A photo site I used to look had competitions that were themed. The best part was that the photo had to be taken during the duration of the competition.

This worked really well because it actually gets you out and thinking with your camera more often rather than just picking through older photos.

Obviously during the slower months this might not be possible so the rule could be flexible based on time of year?

In fact, if you did force the photo to be taken in the month of the comp, you could put together a cracking calendar with the winning pic from each month(using something like http://www.photobox.co.uk/shop/calendars-and-diaries?tab=0#tab) and sell copies to members for site devepment etc...

It would be a great way to sum up the bass fishing year in pictures.

Good idea Sam! I kind of like the idea of having to go out and get a fresh one. :horsesword:

I like the idea of the fresh pic every month. Many of us have been out scouting for new marks during the winter, so there could be some lovely 'Shirley' looking pics, without necessarily the presence of Shirleys !!

Plus, we're all in with a shout of being 'employee of the month', and having our name on the wall !!!! :clap: :clap:

It'd be a laugh, and another dimension to the site - love it - let's do it !!!

Better get cracking on that January photo then!

How to make a photo of no fish look fishy - hmm.....

Although really, anyone who catches a fish this month and gets a reasonabl pic is almost guaranteed to win this time! How's that for an incentive to brave the cold?

if we are going to do this, like i mentioned in an earlier post, it would be nice to get either photo's of person/persons fishing sunrise/sunset shots,just fish shots either fresh/salt,action shots of guy's into fish,some flycasting shots etc,etc, i just feel it would add another dimension to the forum and give people something else to think about when composing there pictures, if possible if would be nice if people entering photo's, could use new pics etc, but we'll wait and see.

It would be great to get involved in this somehow.......
Could I sugest that Henrys Photos are banned in this Comp -- as he is far to good (maybe that is only because I only have a box brownnie) :lol: :lol: :lol:

in some ways chris, it would be nice for henry to put in a photo as well per month for us to look over and compare it to what we've all put in, even if henry's pic isn't in the pictures to vote on.
