Congratulations to Kim Konradi of Dallas, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest! Kim says she’s become a much better photographer after taking a few classes from another Flickr Photo of the Week winner, Teresa Rafidi. You can see Teresa’s winning photo from December here. Kim follows last week’s winner, Sarah Philipson.
If you would like to participate in the Flickr Photo of the Week contest, all you need to do is upload your photo to to our Flickr group page. It’s fine to submit a photo you took previous to the current week, but we are hoping that the contest will inspire you to go out and shoot something fantastic this week to share with Art&Seek users. If the picture you take involves another facet of the arts, even better. The contest week will run from Monday to Sunday, and the Art&Seek staff will pick a winner on Monday afternoon. We’ll notify the winner through FlickrMail (so be sure to check those inboxes) and ask you to fill out a short survey to tell us a little more about yourself and the photo you took. We’ll post the winners’ photo on Wednesday and Gini Mascorro will read your name on the air at the end of her daily arts calendar.
Now, more from Kim:
Tell us more about your photo: I hadn’t taken pictures in a few weeks and was feeling like I needed to take more initiative and just start shooting and self-inspiring. I decided to take photos of things that I found in my dining room. I went to a crafts store and bought a tri-fold presentation stand (white) and used it as my “photo box”.
The figures were a gift from a friend, who has a comparable love of folk art to my own. They were on my built-ins, along with several other colorful and beautifully crafted items. The scene just kind of built itself. It made me smile.
One of the first remarks on the photo mentioned that, although the person knew me personally, the photo spoke more to my personality than most things and gave them a greater insight on me!
