Photos of the Month: Voting is now open for December 2006!

UPDATE 01/08/2007, 10:26 AM MT: We've received a number of questions about copyright protection of flickr. Here are the rights that you and CameraArts will have while images are posted on flickr.

UPDATE 01/05/2007, 2:08 PM MT: Our voting system flags each vote with the IP address of origin. This means that anyone wishing to vote from a router or shared connection will only have one vote for the whole network. Sorry for the inconvenience.

UPDATE 01/05/2007: To vote on an image, choose the entry from the drop-down list on the page here. Clicking on the images will take you to Flickr but no vote will be processed.

December saw the debut of our monthly photo contest at The CameraArts Blog, Photos of the Month: “People and Portraits.” Now that the finalists have been chosen, all of our readers are invited to participate in the selection process by clicking HERE. Voting has already started today, and will continue for a week until noon on January 12, 2007. Thumbnails of all entries will be displayed, as well as links to Flickr, where all contest finalists have been displayed during the month of December 2006.

Every week during December, dozens of entries were received, but only five were chosen for display on Flickr. 20 finalists were chosen, and their images are up for review, to be juried by the public. Even though the subject, “People and Portraits,” was specific enough, the contest was open to interpretation, and we received a wide range of submissions. We have attempted to present as wide and diverse selection of photography as possible, from all types of photographers and every experience level.

Our chosen images encompass family photographs, fine art and abstract pieces, even high fashion. Everyone who participated should be assured that the CameraArts staff had some TOUGH decisions to make when it came to selecting entries!

We invite everyone to enter our next contest, which is already underway. The subject is "Architecture." All who have entered the December 2006 contest are invited to enter again. Send all entries (low-res jpegs only, please) to, along with your full name, image title, and medium used. Every Monday of January 2007, five entries will be selected for the final vote. All selected images will be posted here and on Flickr. One image per person, per category, please. As always, if you have any questions, contact us.

Thanks to everyone for submitting, and best of luck to our finalists!
