Congratulations to Mark Birnbaum of Dallas, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest!


photo of the week 600x420 postCongratulations to Mark Birnbaum of Dallas, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest! Mark has won our contest before; his last victory came in June of 2013. He follows last week’s winner, KT Shiue.

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 Mark:

Title of Photo: Tree People / Cowgirl

Equipment: iPhone 5s

Tell us more about your photo:  My sister was in from Santa Fe for Christmas weekend so I took her to the Bishop Arts (District). We wandered into Fête-ish and found a tree decorated with these wonderful mermaids and mermen. After a few touchups in Lightroom, I had a whole new circle of friends!
