Please vote for my pictures in the Fine Art America sponsored Photography TV contest and leave a message with link in this discussion to your desired art promotion. I provide you with a onetime artwork promotion per vote to my 9000 Twitter @naturefineart followers … hopefully see a spike in viewers and resulting in a sale.

Here are the links to my entries:

Cape Cod Solitude.

Spiral Rose.

White Ibis near Historic Naples Pier.

I will promote once a day and will bump the discussion to notify you ... so please be patient.

Many Thanks!!!.

Translation of prior posts: I'm sorry, I already gave at the office.
Honestly, I make it a point NEVER to vote for vote solicitors, unless they are close friends.
Whenever possible, I go to the contest and vote for somebody else.
The people on this board are your competitors in the contest.
If you think about it deeply, you might use that information, and find a more efficient location to solicit votes.

Greg, on the whole, you're right.....but.....there's always a 'but'.....in THIS case, Juergen is one of FAA's finest Artists, completly respected, so I 'know ' him, and also know he is a major supporter of everyone here, and he is always willing to comment, support, instruct, reply in the friendliest way...an example for our "Community"....
In this case, he's not alone in soliciting....especially, the contest Promotes soliciting.....
You might want to think about your post here as relates to the person, and, the rules of the contest.

. . right . . thank you Vivian . it is true . . I also do not like vote solicitation . . but this contest is sponsored by Fine Art America and it is designed for it and to reach our goal of being selected for the jury we must play the game to win . .

Aloha Juergen . . we only have 5 votes . . and of course I believe most of us would like to be featured . it is why we are here . so we are all voting for ourselves . . which leaves two votes to share with others . . thank you for your kindness . .

Fine Art America is hosting an Online Contest - National Photo Contest . . when you read the fine print it encourages us to ask for votes to reach at least 250 votes from the general public to become eligible "During the open voting phase, vote solicitation is allowed. Contest participants may post links to their images on Facebook, Twitter, etc. in order to garner the 250 votes which are required to qualify for the juried voting phase." . . If you enjoy my photographs please visit the following links and vote for my images . . Thank you so much :))

Well, if you know him, then vote for him. That's not my point. My comments are intended to be more critical of FAA for running a popularity contest at a time when they have finally made a few systematic inroads against popularity contests. Nothing like working against yourself...

This is all about sales....sales and more sales...the more brought in the more sales which is why

we are here. I am all for more to come in and buy just hoping they see mine and buy. But I will not

be playing since I do not have a FB to use and only 26 most days on my Twitter. Not enough to

make it to the next round.

Greg,

I don't like asking for contest votes either and never do it. It probably has a more overall negative effect on my social networking connections than actaully accumulating votes. I usually like to let my work speak for itself and most of the time it sure does. However, this contest is different since FAA is asking and encouraging us to do so. In my opinion there is also a very nice, genrous prize associated with it, therefore I decided to give it a shot and do it. Btw, I am sure painters will be in the next round so start building your network. In addition I offered you a free promotion to my social network in return for your vote on my images. If you think about it it's like the fundraisers on NPR ... I always give because I like it and in return get to listen to it for free! I actually considered closing the thread but nee … for the sake of your comments I will keep it open … isn’t the social networking platform so much fun?

Thanks for letting me know about the link issue Andee and positive comments Vivian and Sharon … worth a shoutout to my twitter friends!

Happy Friday!

Juergen

Just voted for them.
This contest requests vote solicitors, so it is a proper part of the game.
If solicitation is not part of the contest I won't vote for those who do solicit. However, winning entries are not always the ones soliciting, won one contest last year by a five to one margin did not solicit votes but was accused of it. The administrator did not acknowledge the win and reported the next three as winners in his email.

I voted for you Juergen, I hope you are one of the many who will reach 250 votes. That's just the first stage. The next stage is to get passed by the jurors. Good luck

I am entering my photos but not soliciting votes. Why is it wrong by FAA standards any other time, but okay to do now?

Hypocrite - Definition Merriam-Webster ...

Hi Louisa,

I casted all my 5 votes for the FAA Photography TV contest ... all I can offer is a promo to my twitter friends for your vote. Do you have a perticular image you want me to promote?

Lehua,

FAA provides a great opportunity and they shelling out a ton of money for an advertisement on National TV ... in return we promote FAA by asking for votes through our social networks that we have build over years ... I don't really see the problem in this particular case/contest and rather be thankful for an opportunity than negative. Ideally in the end qualified jurors not affiliated with FAA would judge the final qualifies but that seems to be still to be determined.

Btw, how do you approach gathering 250 votes for an image without asking people to vote for you? Do you think this is even possible without asking?

Happy Friday!

Juergen,
I have two photos in the contest you could promote this one

Please and Thank You
And please feel free to share my profile page to anyone you like. He, he (shameless plug for myself)

I'm not being negative I'm only asking a question? Its either yes or no that we can solicit votes. I'm not against soliciting votes. ;) But don't keep me wondering is it okay to do this time or is it not?

 

Juergen Roth

2 Years Ago

Done Louisa ... hope it helps!

Lehua,

I am usually against soliciting votes and just do it for this contest because it is encouraged by FAA ... it's a no no for all other contest on FAA ... at least for me now ...

good luck to all needless to say we'll need to go to other sources to get 250 votes ;-)

Hi David,

I believe in peoples' honesty and trust them to do the right thing. In reality I also watch the numbers of votes carefully :-) and if they don't correlate anymore I get suspicious and take notice. If one may know I promote quite a bit of artwork from FAA through my networks ... I guess I let the rest up for interpretation ...

Thanks for commenting and voting Luke, David and Corinne ... glad you like them! Off to promote your artwork now which hopefully helps!

@Juergen: Thank you very much for promoting my image. I decided to vote for another one of yours (the white ibis pic).

As i decided to participate myself in the contest this was my last vote to give... ;-)

Juergen, if you like you may promote this one of my photos via twitter:

@all: if you don't participate in the contest, if you have voted for Juergens Pics and still have a vote left ;-) take a look at this one:

P.S. I don't like vote solicitation but this contest is different. And Juergen is giving back a great promo to us, so i think this is a win / win situation.

Juergen your Cape Cod is doing the best so far. That would be a great one for us to concentrate

to start with so you can get to that 250 sooner. Is there is leader board to the ones that make

it to that 250 or no? Gonna go check.

 

Juergen Roth

2 Years Ago

I figured I focus on Cape Cod Solitude first and shared that with my social network and friends. If I make the 250 I would promote the next one. In this thread I decided to post all 3. Thanks for the reminder and bumping the thread Andee!

 

Andee Photography

I looked and I do not see a place that tells us when folks get to the 250 mark.

Maybe we will be told that later or when we find out who makes it to the next round.
