Flickr’s Your Best Shot 2017 Opens Soon!

It’s the Most. Wonderful. Time. of the year. Not the holidays, no no. Your Best Shot! We’re back with the Your Best Shot 2017 Flickr Group, opening on December 1st, and we invite you to add your best, favorite, most popular shot of the year.

Far from gravity.

You can join the group now, so go ahead and click on over! Submissions will be accepted from December 1st through January 3rd, 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 and showcase your work from the past year. Just to be clear, the group is for photos uploaded in 2017 — it doesn’t really matter when the photo was taken.

What qualifies as “best” is surely in the eye of the beholder (or the photographer), so it’s entirely up to you what you submit. That said, we’ll begin sifting through the awesomeness in the group pool in early December and publish selection galleries 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 2017 Group starting on December 1st.
