If you would like to participate in the Flickr Photo of the Week contest, all you need to do is upload your photo to our Flickr group page. It’s fine to submit a photo you took earlier than 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 a 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.
Now, here’s more from our Chad:
Title of photo: Circular Lanterns
Equipment: Canon 60D – Lens: 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6
Tell us more about your photo: This was taken while visiting the Chinese Lantern Festival at Fair Park in Dallas. These circular lanterns were hung above a large walkway leading into the main lantern exhibit area. I was attracted to the striking red on black, radiating pattern they created.
