As much as PDN is a respected institution, their multiplication of contests makes you wonder. Then you see something like this… people’s choice award. I guess it’s an attempt to get people involved and try to get some of that social media juice. But it becomes a popularity contest that serious photographers usually disregard, letting this kind of situation occur. Kinda discredits the whole process, don’t you think. But boy are those furrets funny! lol lol lol, sigh….
For something a little more serious, check out the winners of PDN’s Faces contest. And please pay attention to the beautiful portrait series of Jason Florio in the environmental category.
