New I SHOT IT Homepage

December 16th, 2014 ( Updated 1 day ago )

You may have noticed that in the last few days the I SHOT IT homepage has changed. We are continuously working on the I SHOT IT website to make it easier to use, and nicer to look at. At the top of the homepage you can now see the five newest photos. The centre of each photo is cropped into a square image. Clicking on a photo will open a page to reveal the entire photo.

The rest of the homepage below is split into two columns. On the left is a list of all competitions that are open to new entries. On the right are a number of sections containing links to recent blog entries, recent results, and competitions where voting is active. There is also a place where you can change the background theme for the whole of the I SHOT IT website. You can choose from a number of dark or light backgrounds.

Bird Photo Competition 5 2014 Results

Udo Siebertz from Germany has won the bird photo contest with an unusual underwater shot. The judge assumed that it had been taken with an underwater camera when in fact it was shot through an aquarium window. Regardless of how it was taken, it is wonderful photo and a very different viewpoint from most bird photos. Udo has won $291.60 and a Leica C worth $700. Congratulations Udo!

We would like to thank everyone who entered one of the 243 entries and we'd like to thank the judge Mike Atkinson for choosing 10 winning photos.

Cars and Transport Competition 5 2014 Results

Hermann Schlindwein from Germany has won this Cars and Transport competition with a very unusual, but unique and special photo. It reminds me of flights that are coming into land, and at last there is something interesting to look at out of the window after being very high up over the sea. It's also great to see that a competition can be won with a mobile phone camera, as usually the more expensive cameras have an advantage.

Herman has won $206.40 and a Leica C camera worth $700. There were 172 entries. The judge Tim Wallace has chosen 10 of the best transportation photos. Thank you to everyone who entered.
