Cosplay Photography Contests
I'd like to get your thoughts about cosplay photo contests that various places have.
This past week I received information about an anime convention's photo contest. It will be judged in two rounds... the first is by internal staff and the second round is by popular vote. Do you think contests should be decided by popular vote? Or should it be judged on photography skill?
If done by popular vote do you think there would be a bias towards popular cosplayers even if the photo isn't that good?
