Revised POTD Categories for 2010

Published in Site Announcements and Updates by Kevin L. Kitchens on December 24, 2009 12:34

The Photo of the Day categories are being revamped for 2010. In a streamlining move, the total number of categories is being reduced from 12 currently to six. We're just combining some that have been lagging a bit and insuring the each days selections will be among some of the best photos on the web.

Entry into the current categories will end on December 29. On January 1, 2010 all photos in the current categories will be automatically moved to their proper new category. There is no need to resubmit your entries. On December 30, 2009, you may start directly uploading to the new categories.

Beginning January 1, 2010 the six POTD categories will be...


  • General - No change. This is the catch all for photos that don't fit the other categories as well as general interest shots and macros.
  • People & Street - Portraits, Street Events, Quality Candids, etc.
  • Birds, Bugs & Beasts - Animals, birds, insects, etc.
  • Plants, Flowers & Landscapes - Trees, leaves, roses, sweeping majestic vistas all go here.
  • Art & Abstract - Abstract patterns and digital manipulations (HDR) shots go here.
  • Monthly Subject - We'll still feature the subject of the month. The January 2010 theme will be announced in the next few days.


The 90 day rule will still apply to entries (the shot must have been taken in the last 90 days when submitted).

Black and white conversion is an acceptable photo edit similar to color correction and the photo should be submitted in the relevant category based on the subject matter. However, selective desaturation belongs in Artwork.

Thanks to everyone for your support of the site! I look forward to seeing your work in 2010.
