Bonjour to 2024 Spotting Competition [CONCLUDED - SEE YOU NEXT YEAR]

Hello Community!

Year five! Spotting competition! Yay! Welcome back to the annual spotting competition that I’ve been holding. I know some of you have been waiting patiently so here we go.


  • Double elimination style (two losses and you’re out).
  • No category/plane restrictions for any rounds.
  • Must be your own photos.
  • Must not have any significantly photoshopped elements (for example: enhancing the sky with a gradient is fair game. Swapping in an entirely new sky is not). This is honor system, but don’t let me catch you.
  • Please only enter if you are actually going to stay active during the whole competition. I’m not chasing people around for photos.
  • Photographer names will be kept private (for the most part), but votes will be public and shown on close.

How to Enter

  • Please send me a separate PM with your photo. If you cannot initiate a PM due to trust level, drop a reply and I will message you first. You are not entered until I receive your photo. I will not be reserving slots for people.

  • Entries are open from now until noon EST on December 31st, or until the competition is completely full (40 slots).

  • If you prefer, you can also send multiple photos and I will simply use them in order so I don’t have to bother you every round.

Have Fun!
