We kicked off a Topic of the Week series on a few other sites, and now we're bringing it to Photo Stack Exchange! The basic idea is to increase the content we have about hot or underrepresented topics. Feel free to leave suggestions for future topics.
Congratulations to dpollitt, winner of Business of Photography Week!
How it works: We will designate one topic each week, and each person who asks a question relating to that topic will be eligible to win a prize.
How to enter: Ask a question relating to the topic of the week, and tag it accordingly (each week, specific tags will be listed here). Each question you ask will get you one entry into a random drawing to win a book of your choice (under $50).
Choosing the topic of the week: Topics are chosen based on community input. If you have suggestions for next week's topic, please leave them as answers to this post.
Dates: Each contest will start at 10 AM on a Tuesday and end at 10 AM the following Tuesday.
There is no contest for the week of 1/31/12.
Participation has been low; there were only four questions asked by two people for Business of Photography, which was tied for the first place community suggested topic. The other top topic, Artificial Lighting, doesn't have specific enough tags to track. I'm suspending this contest indefinitely.
Fine Print: This contest is open to all users across the globe, but the book of the winner's choice must be available for purchase online so that Stack Exchange can easily buy and send it. The book does not have to be related to the topic of that week, but it should be related to photography. Questions must remain open and have a positive score in order to be eligible. You must include the current theme's tag(s) in order to be have your question counted, but feel free to include additional tags that you feel belong with the question. Each user may only win one weekly contest every 8 weeks.
