For today’s TGI Friday, I’d like to announce a new contest that I’m calling The Great Flickr Photo Find. Since I haven’t done a giveaway in a while, the winner of this contest is going to get something special. If ‘the find’ gets 10 or more entrants (10 people, not 10 photos), I’ll be giving away a one year Flickr pro account (so spread the word and let your friends know, because the more entrants, the better). If ‘the find’ gets less than 10 though, don’t despair, because I’ve still got something special in mind that won’t disappoint.
To enter, just find a photo on Flickr that you like. Simple, right? It can be funny, inspiring, emotional, or unique, but just make sure it’s interesting. Then, post a link to the pic in the comments. That’s it. At the end of the day (PST) on Sunday, March 25, I’ll pick my favorite pic out of the entrants, and the poster will win the prize. Though any photo is eligible (even your own), I’d like to post the winning photo here on the site, so bonus points will be awarded for the use of a Creative Commons photo (like the photo above, Hammertime, by Afroswede, or the photo below, pillars, by Jef Poskanzer). To make things easy, just use the Creative Commons Search.
Find a photo, post it, and win; that’s all there is to it. Let’s see what you’ve got.
Edit: I’ve extended the deadline until Sunday to give you some time to find the good stuff.
