Congratulations to Samarpita Sengupta of Dallas, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest. Samarpita has won our contest several times. Her last win came in May of last year. She follows last week’s winner, Luis Chay of Guatemala City, Guatemala.
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 Samarpita.
Title of photo: The Red Cardinal
Equipment: Canon EOS T1i and 55-250mm lens with post processing done in Lightroom 4
Tell us more about your photo: A shot of a red cardinal in the snow has been on my bucket list for a long time. After spending 20 minutes in the cold at my best friend’s house in snowy Des Moines, Iowa, I found a bird at just the place I wanted it!
