In the 7th Weekly Round-up, we have mentioned about our intention to set new tags that will help us discover your photos. At the moment we are receiving almost 500 post submissions each day and among these submissions we are to scout and select 10 posts to win one of the Top 10 Contributors spot.
The winners of each Top 10 category will be scouted in a span of two weeks. In this time frame, an accumulated 5000 posts will be a huge pile of submissions that we need to go through to search for the best for each category. To put it simply, the #photocircle tag is overloaded with post submissions. These are submissions that will be categorized for 10 daily contests.
One way to approach this situation is to have a new tag for each category, these are:
#pc-nature for Top 10 Nature photography
#pc-people for Top 10 People & Lifestyle photography
#pc-animal for Top 10 Animal photography
#pc-magichour for Top 10 Magical hour photography
#pc-vehicle for Top 10 Vehicle photography
#pc-architecture for Top 10 Architectural photography
#pc-city for Top 10 City view photography
#pc-street for Top 10 Street view photography
#pc-macro for Top 10 Macro world photography
#pc-abstract for Top 10 Abstract photography
These new tags are for specific contest tags only, to join the daily Top 10 Contributors contest, the usage of these tags will provide the participant a higher chance of discoverability. With these new post tags, it will also allow us to search for your contest submissions with ease.
The implementation for this update will be on the coming week of curation, starting on 15th July 2018.
We are looking forward to your contributions.
