Some statistics from the 2009 contest;
The 2009 IndiaShots.com contest received about 4000 entries
688 entries were accepted and published.
The 2010 contest will begin on 15th August 2009. The 2010 contest categories will remain the same but there will be an increase in prize money. Some of the navigational issues that have plagued this website for some time, should be sorted out before the next contest begins. Hopefully the 2010 contest attracts a larger number of contestants.
