Congratulations to Steven Haal of Dallas, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest! This is a first win for Steven, with his backstage shot of the Dallas Opera performing Moby-Dick at the Winspear Opera House (note the curved back of the set that represents the hull of the whaling ship, the Pequod. You can also see the out-front view on the video screen, lower right). Steven shot it on May 17, using a Nikon D90. He follows last week’s winner, Todd Landry.
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.
