Kudos to Canon for organising this event. However, it is rather low profile despite all the ads in the Clubsnap. Only get to know about it on the closing date of the Mar submission.

After going through the pics and looking at the votes, I have to conclude that the judging system is rather kelong. It is not the best picture wins. But rather, the one who creates the most accounts, wins.

Just like Singapore Idol and American Idol.....there is never a far way to judge. Why not submit a crap photo and ask 100 people to vote. So end of the day Canon will know what is the problem.:bsmilie: Their Photographer of the year produce crap photo.

No need to ask people to vote for u.
Keep creating accounts and vote for yourself. U'll be rewarded with an ixus camera every month and a 5d2 with L lens at the end of the year.

For every account you register, it has to be accompanied with an I.C. no. How many I.C.s do you carry?

We can vote for our own photos?

The brains behind the judging process must be one sick dude - (no offense to self voters ah)

Hmmm... food for thought... would we prefer someone to judge the photos submitted, or go for the current voting system? Or perhaps 50/50 system of judging and voting?

:think:maybe 50/50 would be as it would probably add some impartiality to the judging process?

Yeah, there should be a shortlist. Its nuts man. There is something like 13 pages of 8 pictures each. Which makes it about 100 pages to look through before voting (for serious voters). Its no wonder that this becomes a popularity contest.

They should shortlist it to 10 or something. Only then should they let the public to vote.
