C'mon guys... it'd be good to see some ThaiVisa members amongst the prizewinners.

:smile:

There is some pretty good talent on this forum.

What do you mean 'pretty good'? The stuff on here is picture postcard worthy, I'll confess I nicked a few as screensavers.

It looks like some of the contestants have lobbied their friends and families to vote for their photos as their vote numbers are disproportional to the other contestants. :dry:

 

C'mon ThaiVisa members... vote for our own!

I would call this competition " who have more friends and relatives" with account on Facebook...I don't ask my friends to vote because I consider it 's cheating and have nothing to do with photography..

It is odd that a cell phone holiday snap, slightly out of focus, of a Taiwanese girl and an elephant is getting disproportionate votes to everyone else. 

My guess is this has been posted in some social media in Taiwan and people are urged to vote "Taiwan." It clearly has nothing to do with the quality of the photo or being on theme.

 

I also wonder if the name of the girl is the one in the photo, which would mean that she didn't actually take the photo herself. 

 

And I can't help but wonder why the judges put up so many photos, for one thing, and for another, why most of them have NOTHING to do with the theme of Thailand's "stability, prosperity and sustainability."

A Chinese boy jumping on a bed? Someone standing in a doorway? An uninspired shot of trees? Fire twirling for tourists? A tourist with an elephant? 

 

It would have been nicer to pick 12 top photos that both encompass the theme correctly and are actually good photos, not just tourist snaps...there's always next year, I guess. 

 

I don't know if I should say which is mine.
