Hello OOF contest participants,
The contest results are in but first I'd like to thank everyone who entered the contest and especially those that submitted new OOF images in our sponsoring group even though there were only a couple of new submissions. Consequently, I encourage all that have not entered new OOF images to do so and help our group progress so that it's not eliminated from FAA altogether.
As longstanding OOF group members already know, I feature ALL newly submitted OOF images on our homepage unless of course they violate FAA standard guidelines such as certain types of nudity. There are no silly prerequisites such as how active you are in group discussions or other participation requirements I've noticed being dictated in many groups these days. One in particular is requesting you archive your featured image on a discussion thread for posterity. This is just another contrived and unnecessary ploy to elevate group rankings which I doubt seriously even works. Your image should stay in the group automatically unless removed for some reason. Only Featured home page images are sometimes taken out per FAA requests for a smaller number there but they should still remain in the group indefinitely.
Here is the link to the Leaderboard page...
If you have any specific contest ideas, such as a subject theme for our next go-round, please by all means suggest them.
Thanks once again from your contest host and sponsoring group admin,
OOF - Out Of Frame group: https://fineartamerica.com/groups/oof--out-of-frame.html
