Michael. Something strange is happening with your links. When I hover my mouse over any of your links, it highlights all of them and only allows your "Oh My Gawd Eye See..." image to show up. You may want to edit you post and see if it will allow those to become separate links.
For the question: "I thought a contest should be about the best image" ... it is not. None of the FAA contests (as well as many other contests these days) are truly about quality, they are about publicity. So if you embrace the true purpose of the contests, they can be a tool to get your work seen. It is all about bringing people to FAA and creating a buzz in the social media about FAA... Maybe we will also be lucky and have a great image actually win.. lol -
Some tips learned last year: -
push for one image at a time, make sure you have at least a 50 point (or more) cushion before you start on your second image because the votes can be revoked and drop you down below 250 before you are recognized by the contest as having reached the desired number (and put on the sacred list).
Do not drive your valued contacts crazy with requests to vote- also maybe it is inappropriate/immature to ask certain contacts - point is:be sure the solicitation to vote is appropriate.
Integrity is important - last contest there were "tells" as to who was revoking votes and re-voting for their own gain (how immature - remain professional and adult about it all).
I am sure others can add their experience to this list!!
I have 3 images in the contest. Visitors are being asked to open an account with FAA or to log in with their Facebook account in order to vote for one of my images. They tell me they are not willing to do that and I don't blame them.
