Contest Moderator: Due circumstances there will be no new contests on May 3, 2017. That's why this contest runs 2 weeks! ( 2 years and 269 days ago )
Denlig: Should we photograph the cause of the phobia, the result of the phobia or the means of fighting it? ( 2 years and 267 days ago )
finnphotography: Where is the list? ( 2 years and 260 days ago )
dhoebeke: Hi, finn. I don't think there's a list as there was for Rolling Stone. If you find something that has a phobia name, you're probably okay. But I've been wrong before. ( 2 years and 260 days ago )

Howdie stranger!
