Congratulations to Cindy Higby, of Dallas, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest. Cindy is a three time winner to our contest. Her last win was in December. Cindy follows last week’s winner Jochem Herremans, of Antwerp, Belgium.

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 Tuesday to Monday, and the Art&Seek staff will pick a winner on Friday 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 Tuesday.

Title of photo:  And This is Where It Gets Funky

Equipment:  Nikon D610, Nikkor 24-120mm Lens

Tell us more about your photo:  I went to the MLK Day parade to capture the energy and positive vibe. After shooting on the sidelines for a bit, I got frustrated and decided to get in the parade, closer to the people. It’s amazing what you can shoot if you act like you belong. I attached myself to the Lancaster Marching High School Band and literally sat down on the street to get underneath the action as they broke out some crazy dance moves. Good times.
