This round we added in a call for feedback and it's been great to have some great feedback and conversations! Thank you to everyone who responded with feedback, you've given us a lot to think about and a lot of ideas.
@metzli gave us some feedback on her experience using images and gave us a suggestion for images she would like to use in posts. So this round her suggestion will be our prompt and I think it will give our contributors quite a bit too work with. Thank you, you will be added as a beneficiary of this post.
@katerinaramm gave us LOTS of feedback and ideas and I think it will take us a while to process them all and see what we can implement.
10 Hive goes to @katerinaramm and 4 Hive each goes to @metzli, @deeanndmathews and @leeart.
How it works
The challenges will run every two weeks. Each round we will have a topic or two for our contributors to try their hand at. We invite everyone to give their feedback on any entries and the best one will win Hive. Meanwhile, we ask anyone who has been looking to use images to tell us what they are looking for in the comments on this post and these suggestions will be put forward as the challenge topics for future competitions, with the suggesting account added as a beneficiary of that challenge post. They will also be invited to judge any entries and pick their favourite submission. If they also choose to use a submission, then all the better. You don't have to be currently looking for images to suggest them, you can suggest anything you may have used or wanted to use in the past or that you think might be in demand.
We invite people to add an upvote to their favourite suggestions and this will play a part in which ones will be selected first for the next challenge.
This week's challenge topic will be:
1: Office work and business, in particular people talking on the phone or images of phones.
- No plagiarism (obviously).
- Think quality. Will someone want to use your image if it's blurry or badly laid out? Low quality posts will be muted in the search feature
- Make sure you're tagging your submissions correctly.
- Make sure your images fall within legal restrictions for stock images.
- Submit your entry links in a comment on this post, so we don't miss it.
- All images are accepted, not just photographs, as long as they are your own.
We have Hive for the winning entries. All quality entries will be nominated for curation if they aren't already well rewarded. Votes will be given on all good suggestions for images, with the chosen suggestion/s added as a beneficiary on the next challenge post.
Are you looking for specific stock images to use? Please view the Stock Images Main index where you can search by alphabetical order genre. This will be updated periodically as more images are added. We also now have a search feature, which is being improved as we go, so please feel free to give feedback on it.
