The Masterclass Gallery

I don’t know how I feel about competitions that are fully or partly judged by the audiences/viewers/community members etc. as opposed to specialists in that respective field. An individual having a wide online/offline social network could pile on the votes irrespective of the quality of his/her work. And timely submissions can accumulate more votes than the ones made closer to the deadline, especially if the submission period spans a few months. Nevertheless, let’s see how it goes. I have made my submissions and am asking for your vote! You do not need to register to be able to vote for any of the entries in this competition.

I think that the expression on this girl’s face tells a thing or two about her thoughts, feelings and life. She is part of a troupe that performs balancing acts on the beaches of Anjuna, Goa.

  1. I voted for “rice” too.

    Agree with what you said about people with the most friends getting more votes. the current top 10 aren’t the pick of the bunch. I saw many better images when i was scrolling through looking for yours

    • That’s what happens. I guess this is a popular method for a competition/website to promote itself. And a lot of the competitions that run this time of the year are like that.
      Thanks, nursemyra!
