Each weeks winners will get a Winner Badge by Zoobz and will be invited to help choose the following week's winners by joining the panel as Guest Judge.

The History of a Legend by AlienTwo

 
In February of 2014 a GTA Forumer who goes by the handle of SingularSoul founded the Competition (original page can be found here: http://gtaforums.com/topic/683913-gta-forums-weekly-snapmatic-photo-competition/) after a community of excited Snapmatic photographers had formed in a separate thread (can be found here: http://gtaforums.com/topic/652898-professional-photographers-snapmatic/ ).  He put together the original panel of judges which eventually came to include our dear ~Tiger~ who in time, took the baton from Dear Leader, hired me, AlienTwo as a Judge and began running the show in his own right.  When the, at the time, Next Gen consoles were announced to be released he began preparations to move the Competition to a new thread as a new page (I will provide no link as this is the thread you find yourself on right now) in GTA and Competition history was being written.  ~Tiger~ passed the torch to me and eventually I handed it down to the current Judges Panel Secretary-General, Alchemist.  And in a nutshell, that is the History of the Competition. Now for some of the details that have been asked about;
 

Much love,
AlienTwo

Not at all. This new competition has two categories for entry, Last Gen and Next Gen, and each week we will have a winner from each category.

 

This means Last Gen entries are not competing against Next Gen users.

I know this is off topic but are next gen pictures going to look better? Are they going to be larger too?

The first is subjective, but the second is a yes.

Some are going to look very similar, others say vegetation-heavy shots will look significantly better. Pictures are quite a bit bigger indeed.

 

Quick example. Notice how DOF actually works.
