Continue the photo contests?

In the last few months its been like pulling teeth to get enteries for the SW, and FW photo contests. The SW contest was to start yesterday and as of this point we have 1 entry.

What are we to do?

I agree that we should keep them. I wish more people entered. I love seeing those beautiful pictures. I have another idea to add... I was thinking maybe once a year we could have a best of the best contest. Maybe take all the winning photos and have a contest with them. Maybe the prize could be a larger number of kudos or an aquarium advice t-shirt or something... just an idea.

I'm still trying to get a single photo contest started at www.reptileadvice.com and can't seem to get enough people interested.

Like I said, I vote for keeping them but if someone out there knows why we have trouble getting people involved and/or what we can do to help it, please let us all know...

I agree we should keep them.

I think peope need to have more confidence in their photography skills. Doesn't matter how good your camera is - if the picture is good, it's going to be obvious no matter what camera you use.

Also, I am not sure if people are voting on quality or just which photo they like the most - as it's supposed to be which photo you like the most for whatever reason it is.

Please don't feel imtimidated and not submit a photo.

It's hard not to be intimidated!!
I like the idea of reminding people to get in their pics.

I'll buy the first shirt. This way it won't cost the site any money.
