DPChallenge.com is pleased to announce the return of the Digital Photography League (DPL), a competition for teams of photographers conducted through the weekly challenges at DPC.

We are encouraging all registered and paid members of DPC, whether currently active or not, to get involved in DPL4 and participate with your teammates in improving your photography skills while winning virtual ribbons and trophies. Those of you who have participated in any of the 3 previous iterations of DPL (and the quasi-official WPL before that) will remember how much camaraderie was enjoyed by the teams as they encouraged and critiqued each other throughout the seasons.

This is a preliminary announcement, to “prime the pump” so to speak. About 5 days after this message is emailed/posted, we will open the registration site for team creation. There will be more details on that site, but here are a few noteworthy points:

1. Anyone may be a team captain, and may recruit team members at will. But in the end there probably will be only 24 teams (the next step would be 48) and how many members comprise a team will be determined when we see the turnout.
2. There will be a free agent pool for uncommitted DPCers who seek a team to play on.
3. Every team will have a dedicated, private forum page of their own in which to communicate among themselves.
4. Scoring will be based on percentiles rather than actual voting averages. That is to say, a win in a challenge is always a win, even if it is a low-scoring challenge compared to the other challenge in the rota that week.
5. There will be 2 challenges that count in each week of the the DPL4 seasons: the Sun/Mon members challenge and the Tue/Wed open challenge. Paid members will be able to offer two entries to their team each week, registered members will be limited to one.
6. Only the best-scoring of a member's results may be counted toward the team score in a given week.
7. The Thur/Fri challenges and the Free Studies, as well as any special challenges that may be run, will not count towards DPL scoring.
8. For the duration of DPL4 the Sun/Mon and Tue/Wed challenges will revert to a 1-week submission period. The Thur/Fri challenges will continue with the 2-week submission period as currently used.

The official DPL4 page will have more details on actual dates and duration of the season. As before, there will be a regular season, divisional playoffs, and a championship match at the end of the season.

We look forward to seeing many of our old friends back for this competition, and we hope if you're not currently active you'll come back and play with us :-)

I'm interested if I can find a group that really likes to kibbutz, talk things through, give advice, give honest feedback even if it stinks, and plain enjoys each other's company and has fun! That's not asking for a lot, is it?

Never participated in DPL before but looking for something to motivate and improve my photography and this could be the ticket, I'm interested in playing along.
06/01/2018 09:58:17 AM · #18
I've really enjoyed DPL in the past; count me in!
06/01/2018 09:59:10 AM · #19
I'm in.

Editing to add: I will try hard. I will encourage others. I love critiques and suggestions. I am competitive. BUT - and this is important! - I really don't care whether I win (or my team wins). I want to be on an active team where members give it their best shot - or at least A shot!, but I DON'T want to be on a team where players start running down others on the team or on other teams. I do not like trash talk. So . . . if you're starting up a team and I sound like a fit, let me know.

Yes he does, and will, because we are long time team mates, simple.
