Congratulations to Patrick Mai of Hannover, Germany, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest. This is the second time Patrick has won our contest. His last win was in April of this year. He follows last week’s winner John Johnson of Haltom City.
If you would like to participate in the Flickr Photo of the Week contest, all you need to do is upload your photo to our Flickr group page. It’s fine to submit a photo you took earlier than the current week, but we are hoping that the contest will inspire you to go out and shoot something fantastic this week to share with Art&Seek users. If the picture you take involves a facet of the arts, even better. The contest week will run from Tuesday to Monday, and the Art&Seek staff will pick a winner on Friday afternoon. We’ll notify the winner through FlickrMail (so be sure to check those inboxes) and ask you to fill out a short survey to tell us a little more about yourself and the photo you took. We’ll post the winners’ photo on Tuesday.
Now here’s more from Patrick.
Title of photo: “Grasshopper”
Equipment: Canon 6D with a 70-200mm f 2.8 lens
Tell us more about your photo: I was so happy to see the grasshopper, because I usually see them and after the next heart beat they are gone. But on the very first day with my new 70-200 f 2.8 lens, nearly 2 hours after getting it from the shop, I got this shot.
