    I am trying to increase exposure to my photo that is entered in a contest.
    It seems the contest is determinded not on quality, but on quantity of
    votes. If you are so inclined, please have a look and leave a vote, please.

    In that case, it is not a "photography" contest at all, but a contest
    to see who is best at drumming up support by asking for votes on
    usenet groups and mailing lists.

    And is that so horrible? It's votes from your peers. I am not asking for
    all '10's'...just trying to increase the exposure of my photo.

    If you win, it won't be because your photo was good. Isn't the point
    of having a "photography" contest to see who has the best photo rather
    than who has the best canvassing skills or most online contacts?

    It's not "horrible".... just rather pointless.
    Call me dense - I still don't get where you are coming from. If the jury
    was a panel of judges, then one would not bother. But it's not, it's a
    panel of one's peers. Kinda like the Top 10 in music, you know? So I have
    to do some self-promoting to get my stuff seen - hey, there are worst ways
    to get ahead in this life.

    I guess I could put my stuff out there and sit back and wait to be noticed.
    But that is not a reality in my opinion.

    Thanks for looking,

    Pam

    It was this comment from you:
    Surely the whole point of a "photography" contest is the quality of
    the photography?

    With all her spamming she's going to get plenty of votes, but the lowest
    ratings ever -- hopefully sending a clear message to the organizers so that
    they stop making such stupid contests that cause people to make a fool of
    themselves.
