- Apr 2, 2011Thank you Ken, I do so enjoy your negative views on just about everything.
This has been discussed before, but just to be clear let me say it again.
Many contests charge for entry, and often a lot more than this. The fees charged for entry go mostly towards the costs of running the contest. The organizers do not aim to make a lot of money, they hope to cover costs and some of their time.
I am not one of the organizers, I just agreed to help set up the new VR/360 category and publicize this within the VR community. I am doing this because I think it is good publicity for VR panoramas and a way for people working in that area to earn some public recognition. I am not being paid monetarily or in any other way.
The other volunteers in this effort are the judges, respected members of this community - Scott Highton, Keith Martin, Aaron Spence, Matthias Taugwalder, and Pat Swovelin. They are not being compensated for their time either, plus they are disqualified from entering.
