Hi everyone

After lots of discussion and input from you all, we are re-introducing the GE Awards.
The consensus was not to change it very much, so we're not.

The main change is (instead of Pete) our very own Keith and Adrian will be organising and overseeing the process. Thanks guys!

One major change (which we hope you'll all be happy with) is the awarded pictures will also be considered for POTW by the team each week.

David & Rick expect the admin feature to facilitate the new process will be ready mid-March, so no doubt Keith and Adrian will be in touch with those of you who have so far kindly volunteered to be Guest Judges.
If you wish to add your name to the list, please do so here.

We hope you will welcome the re-introduction and slight change to the process.
Its success will depend on you Smile

Thanks
Tracey

Surely they were in the old system as the images were in the normal gallery as per normal and therefore available for consideration as POTW.

We totally agree with you.
However, it is to appease the suggestion that perhaps some 'technically brilliant' pictures are being missed. This way, in the unlikely event something goes overlooked, it will be highlighted.

Anything being given an HC, EC or GE will be eligible for POTW.

All those taking part as Guest Editors will be required to repeat the GE Promise :

"On my honour, I promise to do my best, to do my duty to TJ and the team.
To ignore the opinions of other people and to keep the EPZ Law."

Wink

I think that being in the running for POTW might just help to hone the eye of the Guest Editor, making their selections more acute. What we want is for visitors to click on the Photo Awards menu and go Wow, or maybe just murmur with jealous appreciation - either way it has to showcase the very best photography that the site attracts.

I'm surprised your surprised Adrian, as only a very small minority of site members took any interest initially.

Many don't step into the forums for fear of the wrath of the roaming Neanderthals.Grin

Brilliant - and I do like the inclusion of the GEAs for the POTW - as keithh says, it might focus the mind. Thanks for staying with this idea too tj!

I think the fact GEA images will now be considered for POTW is a fabulous step forward. As already said - it hopefully will instill into the GE that for an image to receive the award it has to be an image that would also deserve the title of POTW if awarded. Thanks to the team for making the necessary changes to move the GEA system forward in a positive manner.
