I wonder if this has been done before?

I was thinking it might me fun to try a side challenge suggestion: Best of the Browns 2013. I've explained the details and how it will work below, and if this interests you, please indicate your interest (whether or not you would be interested in submitting an entry). If and when enough interest in this has been shown, a submission deadline date will be posted and only then should photos be submitted (linked as thumbnails directly to the existing image).

Ok, so sometimes people really try to get the brown ribbon and sometimes not. Either way, there is a brown ribbon for each challenge. From your challenge entry brown winners from 2013, enter your favourite photo - the best one, like you want to win the highest score with it. The theme would be the equivalent of a free study. After the deadline, a voting template will need to be drawn up (which will be posted) - it will be something like
username - title - ???
username - title - ???
username - title - ???
(all your votes in one post), where "???" is the score you give. The scoring will not be anonymous and there will have to be trust that the voters will score truthfully based on the photo, not the photographer or whatever (scores will have to be relative - I would guess the brown entry winner scoring 8 isn't like a normal challenge entry scoring 8). The point of this is just to have a bit of fun. I will post the results after the voting deadline has been reached.

I guess I could create a thumbnail which would indicate the top three and post that on the top three as a prize, and the winners could display that on their profiles if they so wish.

The reason I post this as a side challenge and not a challenge suggestion is that I don't think DPC would want brown ribbon photos on the front page (although some might be quite good).

I'm not sure that I understand the rules.
"From your challenge entry brown winners" Please explain which those are.

You may have a good idea here for a side challenge.. but I can't quite figure out what we're supposed to do.

For a while I was playing the game of trying to come in last with a good photo. I have quite a few browns, some of which I like & think are good. So, I think I would enjoy this side challenge game.

I assume it means that you have to have a brown to compete...?

But I'm pretty sure the OP has no brown ribbons either.

I might be able to donate a few of mine to deserving members ... ;-)

As has been said, you would need to have a brown ribbon. The rest of us would only vote (the entrants would also vote). And yes, I don't have any browns to contribute.

You can alway adapt the Groucho philosophy and refuse to participate in any contest you are eligible to enter ... ;-)
