Right, I don't normally do things this lame, but I have and that's all there is to it.

I've entered a bloody competition online. A photography competition. A photography competition I saw on the music channel Viva. A photography competition I saw on the music channel Viva that's sponsored by a skin-care company. Why? Because I was bored and I need something exciting to happen with my photography.

You can help by clicking this link and voting for me.

You will need to sign up, but it's surprisingly quick and easy to do so. You can vote for me every day until the competition ends in a couple of weeks. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO THIS FOR ME. So far I have one vote, and it's my own. I clicked it about five minutes ago and felt like a saddo.

If you need any extra convincing, look at the photo currently in third place.

The photo I entered on the site is kinda small; here it is large.



Rarrgh says Pam. Rarrgh, vote for Alison!

Pleeeeease vote. Please? I love you.

Aw, thanks. Embarassed

The voting thing is weird. It looks like it hasn't done anything, but it just seems to be slow. As long as you get the 'thanks for voting' message, it should be cool.

The one in third place... how did that happen?!

Anyway, thanks for voting! Don't worry about the score; it's an awful website and doesn't seem to update that well, but it is counting votes. And you can vote every day, yay! I think I'm in 15th place right now, so I still have a way to go... *flexes muscles*

Fellas, do this!

It's not because Alison is our forum queen bee, it's because the photo is without question the best one.

*clickty-clicks again*

[edit] Hey, when is the end date?

We should make it a forum thing to get this pic onto the top five listy thing ASAP, because you can barely tell there are meant to be others on pages 2,3,4, and to get a fair look it should be on page one, and as soon as it is one page one it will win hands down.

I agree with Perdita-I was looking at some of the other pics...blech...

Not only is Alison's the best subject matter-it's the best technically as well: clean image, good lighting, perfect timing-everything a good concert pic should be Smile

Therefore, everyone should vote!!!!

I love you guys. Mr. Green

The voting ends at midday on August 16th, so there's still a good few days left to vote. I'm not sure how to convincingly rally people, but I'll be bumping this thread most days.

Hi Allison,
Today's my regular blog day. http://needlefeltedart.blgspot.com
Do you mind if I use your pic to post about your entry? I have 121 followers. Maybe some of them would be willing to help. It really is a great picture.

Wow, the top five I just saw are really uninteresting. The ones I saw below that, in no order, where equally uninspiring, and I wonder what people are thinking by submitting them. GOOD LUCK ALISON, from what I saw you deserve it.
(sorry I didn't get to it sooner, I've been out of town)

No worries! Any votes are a massive help! I'm a bit confused about some of the entries and why they're so high (350 votes for a Facebook profile picture? really?), but then I feel bad about being so mean-spirited. *guilt*

I have to say, I think the picture currently in 4th place is really good. It appeals to my love of black & white photography and angles therein. That one deserves to do well.

That said, vote for meeeeeee! Mr. Green

I'm now in tenth place. I've cracked the top ten! Please keep on clicking for me, I need to be in the top five to qualify.

I think that one is nicely composed, but the tattoos make it too busy (though that could be due to the smallness of the picture) and the shadow that is running down kind of bothers me. But there is certainly some artistic merit to it, as opposed to the others. Current number three looks to be half a snapshot of two guys at a party?
And my vote today was number 283, though I voted after cocteau's 300. Hope that's just a tally delay...
