Thread for VOLUNTEERS to HOST monthly Photography Contests for 2020. [View all]

This discussion thread is pinned.
As a result of the poll conducted in this thread, https://www.democraticunderground.com/103673544 it looks like we have a response decidedly in favor of continuing monthly contests with a list of volunteer hosts. Several people have already volunteered. (If you are one of them, please respond in this thread and indicate which month(s) you'd like to host.) I am starting this thread asking for volunteers to sign up with a choice of month for 2020. Personally, I think we should still let the winner of a contest select the theme for the following month's contest (and not be eligible to enter), but the contest would be hosted by a volunteer who would be allowed to enter. Does that seem fair? If someone volunteers to host February, then January would be our first contest disconnected from the responsibility for hosting by the winner. If someone volunteers to host March (the WINTER SEASONAL Contest) then a la izquierda will be off the hook for hosting March as the winner of the AUTUMN contest we ran in December.


Here are the months. If you would like to host, please respond and identify which month you would like to host. The SEASONAL Contests run in March, June, September, and December. All other months are theme oriented contests which previously were selected--and hosted--by the winner of the previous month's contest. If you agree that the winner should still select the theme for the next month (unless it's a seasonal contest), please indicate. The winner would still then not be allowed to enter, but would also not be responsible for hosting the contest.

As people respond with the months they would like to host, I will put the names together with the months so that we can refer back to this thread to see who has volunteered for hosting any particular month this year.
