If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).

This year's Red Bull Soapbox Racewas held in my backyard, the East Side of Providence, RI on College Hill. Last year I lived just a couple blocks down from this spot! It was an amazing time and I was lucky to be accompanied by two of my favorite new cameras: my Holga 120CFN and my brand new Diana+ from The Lomographic Society. There is no better way to capture these fanatics than with a Lomo camera!
I used my new Diana+ for the candid shots of the crews in the pits and my Holga with high speed film for the race shots. I got a lot of looks from photographers with their D-SLR's! The pit crews were very happy to pose for my unique cameras.
In this photo, team Star Truck. Their vehicle was the cross between a Ford Econoline and The Starship Enterprise! I enjoyed their trekkie costumes and the color saturation of this photo. Wait a sec... is that Weird Al? I didn't know he was a trekkie, although I guess that is the epitome of "White and Nerdy"!
Created using my brand new Diana+ with AGFA Portrait XPS 160. Negative scanned with an HP Scanjet 4890. No digital manipulation used!
