The EUROPEAN TOP PHOTOGRAPHERS CIRCLE –– Announcement Post | READ ALL Before You Ask For Inclusion

#CircleSharingForThePeopleEPCb (Do NOT tag images with this hashtag!)

By now everybody knows that I have emptied all shared circles in order to bring some more freshness and interestingness into them again –– the same with this fourth edition of my very popular European Top Photographers Circle. That means that the EPC will be all new and fresh as well, and you will have an excellent way of promoting yourself and find new interesting artists via this very popular circle.

READ the WHOLE post BEFORE you ask for inclusion.

What is the EPC?
It is a circle for European Photographers that share their original work in their streams. Whether you're a happy amateur or a pro doesn't matter, as long as you really like photography. You must be European born though (or live in Europe). So, I welcome you to join and meet new people with the same interest as yourself; great photography from European Photographers.

I will share this circle with everybody on Monday, October 22.

Who can join?
Everybody. You don't need to be particularly good or bad –– as long as you have a profound interest in photography, are European born (or live in Europe) and MAINLY share your own work in your feed.

What must you do?

As with all my circles, there are no free rides. Here are the rules (steps you must take) to get accepted:

1) –– Plus AND reshare this post. Why? It's very simple: if you want to get  promoted in this circle, you must be prepared to promote your fellow artist as well. Do NOT remove this reshared post from your feed immediately after I have added you to the circle. Doing so will get you banned from all my future circle shares.

2) –– Make sure that you do NOT post a lot of YouTube clips, animated GIF's, blog post teasers etc. in your feed. I don't mind a few reshares of other people's work (and such) but you must mainly share your own original work on your page. I want ths circle to be as clean as possible and focus on great photography –– not other bling-bling. 

3) –– Ask for inclusion in the comments (must be in this post, not the one you reshare) and please state what kind of art you are into *and that you HAVE completed all steps*. I will check every feed but I won't check twice. Do not add links to Google+ albums, external websites etc. in the comments. If you do, your comment will be deleted.

Have something to say about my circles? Wanna know what others gained from being in the circles? Then go here: https://plus.google.com/116219534929662479848/posts/7Evg2rSE2Hv 

NOTE! If you see that I have plussed your comment, then you know that I have added you to the circle. I didn't PLUS your comment? Make sure that you have reshared this announcement post publicly (and not just to one of your circles) and let me know that you did so.

This announcement post is hash-tagged with #CircleSharingForThePeopleEPCb so that you may mute the reshares this post will generate. That way you will avoid seeing multiple copies of this post in your feed and your adrenaline level will stay normal. I will add a new hash-tag for every announcement and circle post in the future. That way you won't miss out on any of the action but still can mute all the duplicate reshares. 

Here is an excellent add-on that will help you to mute the reshares: http://code.google.com/p/nonplus/

Cheers!
