The Monthly Photo Contest is Winding Down

We are announcing that, after 7 years of running the monthly photo contest for our members, we are phasing it out at the end of February.
Though the contest does have a strong active base of regulars, it is only serving a small percentage of our membership. The resources that we allocate to keeping it running are not doing enough for our membership as a whole.
We enjoy holding the contest and are considering potential alternative formats for the future. Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions or feedback that you have regarding this are greatly appreciated. Please post in the comments below.
