PICOF.net Photography Community

This is a start-up that I’ve founded and I’ve always enjoyed working on. The challenge was to create a flexible and automated platform for hosting weekly photo contests that are focused on honest and constructive criticism. Since it started as a one-man team, I’ve run through all the roles including web development, web design and system ops. Now we’re a team of two, and we’re using the latest tools for the job: Symfony2, PHP 5.5, Bootstrap, Compass, SASS, jQuery, Composer, Bower, PostgreSQL, so on and so forth.

Below is a showcase of its main components, including two different interfaces (white-on-black and black-on-white), the most important pages, and the logo.
