One of the most fulfilling parts of travel is showing people your photos. And the premier showcase for the world's funniest photos snapped by ordinary travelers—Signspotting.com—has relaunched. Its new format improves the odds your photo will be seen—roughly a factor of 10. Photos now receive votes from all other users, rather than from a few judges.
The new design is reminiscent of Hot or Not? a site that continues to allow participants to post pictures and brief descriptions of themselves,
to be rated on a heat scale of 1 to 10 by anyone who logs onto the site.
In case you haven't heard, Signspotting.com features a new sign daily. Travelers who submit photos can earn $50 if their photo is picked as a winner. (The site's paid out about 20 grand, so far, says its owner Doug Lansky.) The site also features an annual contest to win a Round-The-World ticket on the Star Alliance. See the site for details on both contests.
