This year has been my most productive regarding the number of entries in a single year since I started here almost ten years ago! Iím aiming for 100 challenges entries for the year and should make it!

For 2014 I want to beat this and would like to see other members join me in this side challenge and enter more challenges then your most productive year! It doesnít have to be 100 just set a target above your most productive year!

Just let me know in this thread if youíre up for this challenge and what your goal for 2014 is. I will put you on the list and update your progress at the end of each month.

Tribal elders and prolific challenge participants like ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/user_id/1031.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/user_id/1031.gif', '/') + 1) .

Any quick way to count your entries per year? Or would I just have to manually count?
12/15/2013 01:50:40 AM · #3
Not sure if there is an easier way I'm sure the guru's here will be able to tell us. I just copied it to an excel spreadsheet and manually counted.

Allan just a quick look and I think your best is 88 in 2008!

Put you down for 90 in 2014?

Yeah, 2008 I was based in Adelaide, South Australia, a very photogenic area. There's no way I'd ever manage that... :(. My target now is to try and get my average over 6.000. V difficult given the number if challenges I've already entered. Quality rather than quantity are going to have to be my drivers..... Last 3 yrs have been a bit of a drought for me as far as DPC has gone, I've focussed ( no pun intended ) on a book and exhibitions which I've thoroughly enjoyed. I still really enjoy DPC, but tend to be a bit more picky about the challenges I enter...

Brilliant idea, but I'll pass....

All good mate! this is certainly not for everyone. Just keep entering as much as your comfortable with :)
12/15/2013 05:15:08 AM · #7
Well I have no problem beating the number of submittance than in my best year. I challenge myself in a 7+ and first ribbon. When that goal is achieved, I'll set a new one.

Hmmm ok but how about you look at what you have done so far. You have 6 entries in a month so that should equate to 72 for the year! So what do you think about 70 entries for the year?
12/15/2013 08:25:06 AM · #9
I'm quite sure that I won't be able to submit more entries than I have done in the last two years :)

2011 - 67
2012 - 102
2013 - 120
12/15/2013 09:26:04 AM · #10
errmmmm...

I've entered 144 challenges so far this year, and it's been one of my LAZY years. I have no idea what my high-water mark is, but it's certainly over 150... So, as far as "beating my yearly challenge" goes, that's sort of business-as-usual, it's not actually a GOAL. But I'll tag along as an eminence grise and encourage everyone else, how's that? :-)
12/15/2013 09:47:16 AM · #11
I submitted more this year than ever, (32) and I've been here a little while. I'll shoot for 52 in 2014 :)
12/15/2013 10:27:18 AM · #12
I think that this year has been my most active year with about 75 entries.

Put me down for what 95?
12/15/2013 10:37:44 AM · #13
I'm at 49 and likely will finish there because the final FS will fall in 2014. I will add a dozen, one for every month. So 61 is my goal!

I think I'm in the same boat skiff ...

If you put the data (challenges-entered list) into a spreadsheet you should be able to just look at the last line number ...

I have updated the list. ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) .

I have put you both down for 165 for 2014 so we have a ding dong battle of the heavyweights at the top!

12/15/2013 02:06:43 PM · #16
I never thought of counting:
2010: 3 my first year
2011: 113
2012: 92
2013: 96 so far

hard to beat my best year but, why not? I can lose graciously.
Put me on the list please with 114

165/52=3.17 -- that means entering every weekly challenge plus assorted free studies and speed challenges ... not sure I want to commit to that!

Overall, I've entered about 1250 of 1850 challenges (not all of which I was eligible for), so something between 100-120 seems a more reasonable goal.

What ever your comfortable with Paul but you have entered over 150 in the last two years! So I don't know how going backwards is a challenge?

The idea of this thread was to increase participation not decrease it!
12/15/2013 03:02:29 PM · #19
I've entered 9 challenges in each of the past three years. I would like to challenge myself to enter 24 this year. Not really the kind of numbers others are talking about, but still more than doubling what I have been doing.
12/15/2013 03:16:59 PM · #20
I want in on this, and will try to double my most productive year of 2010. That was 21 entries. I try for at least 50 this next year.

THAT'S what this challenge is all about! Go for it! Ditto to Rod!

I've not done much in the latter half of 2013 - 51 images so far this year; I won't enter many more. Let me set a target of at least 60 for 2014.

My most productive year was 2011 with 52 entries so put me down for 53.

Good to hear, Paul. You've been missed.
