Behold the Photo of the Month for August 2014 as chosen by you the people! This image was taken by Jeremy Hammons and submitted in our Alien Skin Exposure User Group back on August 7th. With 34 “Likes” (at the time of writing) it was by far the most popular image of the last four weeks.

Going forward, this will be how we will be choosing the Photo of the Month. Simply put, the image with the most likes wins! The Photo of the Quarter with prizes of up to $2,300 in lenses and gear will then be chosen by the team here at Alien Skin based on a short list of the top 10 images with the most likes over the period of that calendar quarter. You can still share images on our Alien Skin Flickr group, but the competitions will all be judged solely based on images submitted to the Facebook User Group pages for Exposure and Snap Art. It’s really about making things more transparent and getting you guys involved to choose the best work out there. So it’s time to step up, submit your best work and get voting!!

As a reminder of the sort of prize you could win for bagging the coveted Photo of the Quarter award, here is a shot of last quarter’s winner, Chay Bigger, with her swag of sweet Nikkor lenses.

Big congrats again to Chay and mad props to Jeremy for winning August’s Photo of the Month award. Jeremy wins the Photo Bundle as well as a cool Alien Skin t-shirt and baseball cap.

Now let’s see what YOU’VE got!

Best of luck!

Cheers,

Joe

    Sooo…if you don’t have a Facebook account and are not willing to create a Facebook account you are not eligible to participate? Doesn’t seem right, does it?

      Hi Mark,

      More people seem to be using Facebook than Flickr these days and it allows the users themselves to vote on the images easier, which is why we switched. Flickr obviously requires you to set up an account too, so it’s about the same in terms of fairness.

      Cheers,

      Joe
