It’s the most wonderful time of the year: Your Best Shot! Just as we’ve done in years gone by, we’re going to open the Your Best Shot 2016 group for photo submissions on December 1st and we hope you’ll add your best and most favorite image from the year.
You can join the group now, so go ahead and click that button! Submissions will be accepted from December 1st through January 7th 2017 (to give you time to edit those photos you took in the last couple days of the year). You can only add one photo to the group, so be sure it’s the one you most want to symbolize the past year. Just to be clear, the group is for photos uploaded in 2016 — it doesn’t matter when the photo was taken.
What qualifies as “best” is surely in the eye of the beholder (or the shooter), so we leave themes entirely up to you. That said, we’ll begin sifting through the awesomeness in the group pool in early December and publish a selection of our favorites on the Flickr Blog and our social media channels. We’ll select photos from various themes starting in mid-December and continue highlighting our favorites through January or February.
Please note in the Group Rules that by submitting your photos to the group, you are granting us permission in case we use your images to celebrate the group on social media, such as in Tweets, Facebook posts, Tumblr, etc. We won’t use your images to make money or for commercial purposes, but we include the legalese so that you are aware of the rights you grant us for this event.
So check out your portfolio and dust off those hard drives. We can’t wait to see the amazing photos you share in the Your Best Shot 2016 group starting December 1st.
