The Top BGG Photographers: Nominees for the Hall of Fame
My idea is to create a "Hall of Fame" list, but I want BGG members to decide who enters the Top BGG Photographers Hall of Fame. So here are a list of nominees (which BGG members were given the opportunity to add to) for the Hall of Fame.
How it works: give a thumbs up or thumbs down for each nominee. If a nominee gains a high enough positive score of "endorsement" thumbs up votes, his entrance to the Hall of Fame is approved, and he will be inducted on a separate Hall of Fame list (forthcoming).
* you cannot nominate yourself on this list.
* photos must have a certain artistic quality about them (eg good lighting, composition, depth of field), and must stand out from ordinary helpful photos of game components.
* photographers on this list must have submitted at least half a dozen photos with this artistic quality to qualify for this list. A couple of good photos out of 100 is not sufficient to qualify for this list.
In short, browse some of the photos of any nominee on this list, and if you think he qualifies for the Hall of Fame, submit your "thumbs up" comment (and feel free to draw our attention to any of their better images!). You may vote for as many photographers as you think deserve to be "Hall of Famers". Rather than judging by the thumbnails, opening the selected pictures in a new window for a larger view is recommended (and if you like what you see, don't forget to give the picture a recommended "thumbs up" while you're at it, to encourage the photographer!). Note that the list is arranged by user-name, and as a result the first nominees are potentially alphabetically advantaged. In fairness, be sure to check out some of the high quality nominees towards the end of the list as well, and don't forget to check the second page of nominees! Feel free to add comments. Voting closes on January 8, 2006.
UPDATE: Results and the final Hall of Fame can be viewed here:
As I become aware of other good photographers, I will continue to add them to this list of nominees.
