I am Ranting/posting about this because it annoyed me. I dont know robert farber and dont claim to.
BUT I feel A photo contest shouldn't cost people money to enter it.
Why would I SHELL OUT MY MONEY to enter!? Am I that desperate to want to pay someone to judge my work?
Maybe i am wrong on this but i just dont think paying out my cash to enter a contest is a great idea at all. Now if I were on the receiving end of the cash, and running the contest, i'd prolly be ok with the whole shabbang. But, I aint, so I aint.

State Lottery tickets can have a higher payout,for just a few dollars i could win MILLIONS FOR LIFE, says so right on the ticket, and i dont have to wait for some stranger to tell me i didnt win, whenever their, fee based, contest ends.

I'm traveling and going to answer short from my i-phone. Many, many photo contests charge entrance fees including some of the most prestigious ones. No one is making a mint off these contests. There are always costs involved on both sides. The beauty of this country is that no one is forcing you to enter. Farber is one of the best, I stand behind his contest and I'm not making one penny off it. All the best, rg sends in transit!

I truly hear what you're saying.

But i still dont like the idea of helping to foot the bill for someone's contest.

No one is "making" you enter...

Spend your $$$ how you like, I am not spending my hard earned $$$ on a contest...
