In case you haven't already heard, `hellfirediva
is holding a huge macro contest
(with equally huge prizes), and seems to be upset at the lack of high quality entries! (As you can see in her journal here: [link]
Since you are undoubtedly some of the best macro photographers here on dA, why not give it a shot and cheer her up by entering?
Because one of the main mission statements of this group is that we don't want to flood your inbox with updates and blog entries, you'll see that our posts are rather rare! (4 in our year of existing, in fact.) But, there are a few things to slip in:
As more and more people are joining and submitting there work, more photos must, inevitably, be rejected. Don't despair!
Everyone is going to have their work rejected, so don't feel like we have a personal vendetta against you or don't like your work. It's simply a matter of maintaining the high quality standards we've always promised here at #Macro-Photographers
So, in order to keep you guys updated (without flooding your inbox, of course), the front page will now show each week's submission acceptance rates should you be interested. As of today (Tuesday), we've already accepted 39 deviations and rejected 29, meaning the acceptance rate so far is 57%
And as always, please think before submitting to a category! It makes my life much easier
Thanks for reading, and best of luck in the contest should you choose to enter!*MichelleRamey
