Abandoned and Forgotten
Category: Art
This contest is solely for the abandoned and forgotten buildings that dot the countryside with their mysterious beauty. There is a certain charm about abandonments and the history and stories that go along with them.

This contest is for anyone. Your submission must contain an abandoned building shot from the inside or outside. Cemeteries are not considered to be abandonments even if it's overgrown and neglected, no cemeteries please.
Have Fun!

First I want to congratulate the winners! Excellent work. I also want to say thank you for all the votes my entry received!

people I had to beg and plead for support because their lives are otherwise too busy posting profile pictures to myspace to do it here. I can't change theirs, but I can change mine... better?

So, as a newbie, I don't know any better, and it seems to be a recurring subject. Are there any known or repeat offenders, who we should watch for or report, should they try to represent themselves in future contests?

Yep, to late! Funny how some people just seem to get so many votes when they have just entered the contest. They must have a lot of e-mail addresses.

Let's hope that we, as actual artists, can get a foothold before the shallow cyber vote whores get here and turn the site into a popularity contest, screwing over its members by voting themselves in with 1,000 different accounts

Some great shots here, time to think about the art not the fame bucks, which a person can buy!! Good luck to all the talented people!!
