Just ONE vote.

But is there some sort of criteria?
Does it have to be in the "style" of VM?

So, once you click on 'cast vote', that's it? No going back? I'm going to think carefully here with so many quality images!

That was the original brief, as I understand it.

The style of Vivian Maier was pretty much the point of the contest. Not as easy is it might seem.
So, not just another photo contest, but something with set parameters.

I guess submitting photos to the contest was beyond my skill set as my photo only made it to the gallery.
Oh well.

The top vote getters will go on to the 2nd and final voting.

Vivian would be proud (I hope)

It's a rating from the 'ordinary' rating system that also is still in effect. Has no relation to the casting of votes for the contest.

Hi Everyone,

Regarding the Vivian Maier contest, does anyone know if the number of votes received are displayed anywhere or if notifications are sent when you receive/cast a vote? Maybe I've just become addicted to early polling numbers.

Some great photos, but I think next time it would be best to limit 3 entries per person... 14 pages of great images are a bit overwhelming!

It's still time to hide that "vote tally" page until the several voting rounds are closed and the winner fairly chosen by the voters.

Also : by "vote getters", do the contest rules mean that what counts is the votes got by a single photograph per se, or the votes got by a photographer having submitted a series of photographs for this "Vivian Maier" contest ?

Absolutely right. The contest is majorly corrupted by this information being available. I have no conflict of interest having not entered. The number of votes world-wide is pitifully small. I haven't voted yet as I need to find time to get through the fourteen pages. Maybe a judging panel would have been better. OR: What about a second Rolleiflex just for participating in the vote....?

PS Hopefully the competition increases interest in submitting to the Galkery, and also, participating in the weekly Gallery picks.

I absolutely agree with Highway 61 here. I remember that the last time there was a contest on RFf I was very disappointed by the way the winner was chosen. The results were shown immediately. I think the results of the contest must be completely secret and anonymous until the contest is closed. When the results are shown directly, a lot of people will choose for the leader at that moment.

That is why elections (also political elections) are secret.

The weak point of these contests on RFf is the indistinctness of the rules.

Erik.

They have been removed and will be shown at the end of voting.

Also I think another problem is display order of the photographs. There are too many photographs and people tend to vote photographs at former pages. I think photographs should be displayed randomly in every session
