    PSU should host photo sharing competitions

    Inspired by this thread - http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=805887

    Once the new firmware (1.7) hits everyone should then be able to easily share uncompressed photos. Therefore on arrival I think PSU should host regular competitions based on a specific game each month or so.

    The winner/winners can then have the winning photo(s) posted on PSU's homepage and prizes be handed out such as PSN or Amazon vouchers.

    What does PSU get out of it?
    Naturally it should drive the amount of PSU members up as the word gets out that prizes could be won for best photo/(s). More members should also mean more discussion on the forums.

    What does everyone else think? Even trialing it for a month or three shouldn't hurt as long as the owners don't mind parting with a few bucks each month to pay for the prizes.

    A pretty cool and simple idea. I'd partake.

    Why wait for the new hardware - here's the workaround to get full res images captured and shared until 1.7


    • Send a PSN message to a secondary/dummy account on your PS4 with the image as attachment.
    • Go to the Playstation app or website and download the image from the message to your phone/PC.
    • Upload the image somewhere and link it in here.

    ​aka Sparc

    1.7 is here in two days. And judging by the lack of response from anyone higher up, I imagine it's worth just waiting.

    And even if they don't want to implement this as an official competition, we could do something similar to sig of the week and have a member voting system instead.

    I've brought up something similar already with the other admin. However, it required actual work on your part (you slackers! )

    I actually want to see creativity from you guys using Sharefactory. not just a single photo

    i'll pass this on those higher than me and see what they say!
