To Be the Best
is a spin-off eZine from the Flickrchallenge groupYou vs. the Best. Most of ourmaterial is from our discussions and our pho-to pool; it is meant to inspire you to play in ourFlickr group. And why should you play in You vs. the Best(YvB)?- You take photographs- You
taking photographs- You think some of your photographs just mightbe
, and you’re willing to join a ercely
competitive, wildly funny and, dedicated groupof people who feel the same about photography.
Why ercely competitive? Because in order to
post your photo in the YvB pool, also known asthe Hall of Fame (HOF), it needs to win 5 con-secutive rounds of a challenge….that’s 50 win-ning votes!!!! And that’s why your photo wouldbe “The Best.” Tough? Sure, but 23 challenge
categories have xed subjects. Only one chal
-lenge varies! You’re know which subjects will
come up, and where you can aunt your tal
-ents.... or, where you’ll need to get better.Tough? Yes, but here’s what some of our playerssay about YvB and why they like it…..
The vast array of talent and the opportu-nity to go ‘head to head’ against photographersall over the world!
I love this group! The admin are fairand don’t always vote for each other because oftheir friendship, which I have ran into in otherchallenge groups. I also like the maturity of thegroup...top notch photographers here!
The competitiveness! I also like thequality of the photos and you guys of course:)
The competition; it’s hard to pusha picture to the HOF. If it’s done, you can be sure,that this pic ‘has something’

Because I think thereare some good photographers to competewith.
An odd conglomeration of folkswho somehow manage to learn from each otherand make me better as a...well, not a photog-rapher that’s for sure, but maybe I qualify as a“picture snapper.”So, join the group You vs. the Best at
