Lion in N.O. City Park
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).

The Peristyle was created as a platform for dancing while listening to music performances at the nearby band stand. It was originally called the paristyleum and cost $15,330 when erected in 1907. The dancing platform was designed to match the style of the Anseman Bridge, which was erected in 1903 by the same design firm. The Peristyle was advertized as a "majestic" addition to the park, accented by intriguing lion statues at the entrance. Dancing at the Peristyle took place from six to eleven thirty at night. Today it is most often used for weddings and photo shoots.
