    There are several take on this sort of thing out in web-land. I'm a regular contributor to "the street salon" where topics are chosen, people fiddle for a couple of weeks, send a photo, and whoever is judged "best" is made judge and topic-picker for the next round. It's been going on for a while: you can see my pics and links to others here

    Another similar project is Marc North's PhotoFriday. (I'll be trying to go to the Saturday mtg of the Bay Area photobloggers, btw -- see the link here).

    Another is the ongoing contest at DigitalSucks.com

    Some dangers to these, IMO:
    1. When topics are obviously physical, either physical nouns like "telephone" or physical adjectives like "green" or "high," the results tend to be highly mannered and predictable
    2. When people start getting bent about rules and counting "wins," the results tend to be highly mannered and predictable. And people all get mad.
    3. Excitement over the contest can tend to take over the rest of a forum or site, leaving everything else dried up on contest days.
    4. As always, comments like "I liked that" and "I didn't like that one as much" are next to worthless. If there's to be judging at all, it ought to be taken seriously and as a responsibility for every shot made on the topic. Some sort of judging is a necessary evil though — someone has to choose the topics!

    I really like the idea but do not have access to a scanner except everyonce in a while. Plus I don't like the whole be the first, or best thing, is it really necessary? I would just like to see what people come up with. How about giving a broader time line?

    I think the point should be to push us as photographers to go out and shoot something new and not dig through our archives--this is just my repsonse to Kevin's photo as it's from 2002. Anybody can do whatever they feel like, but I am personally going to try and shoot new work.

    I like the idea. The requirement should definitely be for new work only. At usefilm.com it was tough to enforce this, so there was a lot of the same stuff from people's files that they would put up over and over again on every site they could just to get exposure, and often the work didn't even follow the project guidelines. I'll sit out for a few weeks, though, until I'm back home and have access to the darkroom.

    Let's define a point:

    Is this a fastest gun in the west style contest or is there a deadline?
