    The Automotive Photography Competition is seen as the showcase for GTPlanet’s budding (and professional) photographers. Over the years the competition has had many different winners, even looking back at the early days you could see when people began to come successful, and as they learned techniques and found new ways of expanding their styles. One week win would soon turn into 3 or 4 wins. Whilst doing these archives I almost found it inspiring to see the kind of transformations peoples work took. The Automotive Competition has been around for just over 100 weeks now, during those 100 weeks we have had 3 different owners who all had their own individual ways of running the competition, of course the first owner was TVR&FF (Week 1-18), then GWBH1991 ran the competition for about 10 weeks, then the current owner LongbowX took over. Since then the competition has been running strongly. Hopefully it will continue for many, many more weeks.

    Again this archive was created with the photographers in mind; I think that this definitely will help people pick new, unique themes that haven’t been done before. Also I think photographers can feel very proud of themselves to have got into this Archive, in fact I’d almost treat it as a hall of fame.

    I will try to keep this thread as up to date as I possibly can
    .

    Sorry, I just noticed this post. The competitions were in a bit of a hiatus when you posted this but have kick-started again (kind of anyway we're lacking a bit of participation at the moment). The rules and theme for each week can be found here; Link :tup:

    I noticed this post close to when it was posted...but didn't feel the need to answer it because he promptly entered in Comp 96, which was open at the time he posted.
