I hope you win this one eric with one of your sharp pictures of Manila. But is it considered published if it was already psoted on a blog?

Maybe, you'll need fresh pictures for this and just post it after the contest.

You've just raised a very important question, Major Tom, which I must admit, I know not the correct answer. I will, however, forward it to Ka Lito of FPPF and get his expert opinion.

As always, your confidence in my humble skills as a shutterbug is highly appreciated, Major Tom.

i was abt to ask the same question if posting the photo in your blog considered also as "published"

anyways, thanks for sharing all this photo competition, gusto ko sana sali kaso nahihiya ako, point and shoot lang gamit ko eh.

I'm sure you'll win again on this one. I agree with them that you're already a pro in photography! :)

Pusa: the very first contest I won was Quezon City's and I only used a point & shoot. Hindi naman nila tatanungin kung anong klaseng camera ginamit mo, eh. Sali na!

Folks: thanks much for your vote of confidence, I truly appreciate them BUT I'd rather everyone who could submit an entry or two. It's fun! Who knows, you might win, too!

Sali na tayong lahat!

Thanks, much, Irene. But like I said, I'd rather everyone join the fun and submit an entry or to! Guess, I'd like for beginners to experience winning their very first :) It's an exhilirating feeling :)

Thanks, Ferdz, but only in terms of the quantity of Manila shots that I have, but then again, Sidney might have more.

You ought to join, too, Ferdz! And good luck :)

Yes, BW, that is possible. I know someone who has already both won the first and second top prizes.

This is why I encourage everyone to submit as many as they can :)

I'm so excited to stumble upon yet another photo contest. I just finished sending in a picture to the Norton 360's Emoticon Photo Contest. Its a really cute idea, the guys I work with over at Norton told me about it. You go to the site, http://www.norton.com/photocontest and submit photos of you or your family members resembling one of the 5 emoticons! Its really cute, and you could win up to 10k so check it out!
