Great news! .. I've contacted five of my oldest dA buddies to be judges for a new photo contest (with very generous prizes) called the 2006 Photography Olympics! A chance to represent your country as contestants compete to draw tourists to their respective countries.. check out the main contest page here: 2006 Photography Olympics for everything you need to know!... Get in!
Judges to this point are (other than myself):
*horai (UK), *Ellygator (USA), ~BeyondTheHorizon (Denmark), and ~billsabub (Japan)
These judges have all agreed to contribute to the winnings in this contest.. great people and great supporters of art and the dA community!
Some landmark dA events happened for me in the past week:
50,000 pageviews, 1000 watchers, and 3 years on dA (Feb 10) ... the first two landmarks happened rather suddenly the other day when my 'Natural Lighting 2' photo made the front page.. suddenly the message centre was flooded and I picked up 100 watchers and 3000 page hits in 6 hours! ..very flattering..and I just want to offer my sincerest thanks for all your support!
