Congratulations to Oscar Duran of Dallas, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest. Oscar has won our contest multiple times; his last victory was back in February 2012. He follows last week’s winner, Guy Reynolds.

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.

oscarNow, here’s more from Oscar:

Name:  Oscar Duran

City of residence:  Dallas

Title of photo:  Church Window

Equipment:  iPhone 5s

Tell us more about your photo:  I took this shot at Grace United Methodist Church, one of the windows located on second floor of the church steeple. The steeple is losing bricks and mortar and needs to be restored to its former grandeur and its place in East Dallas. Grace church is currently trying to raise funds to do a full restoration of the steeple.
