Made the decision to close Shutterbugs.biz as of mid-August. Maintaining the site has become overwhelming, due to some personal issues. I took it over in late 2002 and have spent many (MANY!) late nights getting it to where it is today. I am proud of the talent displayed each day and am sorry that there will be one less place for the photographers to display their fine work.
Many people have written, saying that they won their first POTD at Shutterbugs... I too remember the thrill of seeing my photo at a contest site for the first time. I hope I have encouraged them to keep shooting!
UPDATE: Two Aussie photogs have purchsed the site and will take over next week! Very happy about this!
