Mazda3Forums Photography Contest -- March 2009





Photos
  • You may photograph anything---you are not limited to cars.

  • All entries must be submitted to LaraW via PM by the cut-off date.

  • All entries MUST adhere to the set theme.

  • All photos submitted may not be any larger than 800 x 600 for landscape or 600 x 800 for portrait.

  • All photos MUST be taken within 1 week of the start of the contest. [ie: photos must be taken between February 12th and March 7th to qualify]

  • When public voting is opened all entries must remain anonymous. Asking people for votes is not tolerated and will result in disqualification.

  • No photo manipulation other than the basics (sharpen, contrast, etc.)

  • No borders or watermarks on submitted photos. We would also prefer that you strip any exif data (ie; in Photoshop save your photo using the 'Save for Web Devices' method).

  • Have fun with this!!

Eligibility
  • All Mazda3Forum members who have been registered for at least a month.

  • Members who win a monthly contest is ineligible for two months.

  • We welcome all members new as well as veteran to photography to enter!

  • SHADOWS

  • Entry Cut-off Date: March 7th 2009

  • Judging Deadline: March 14th 2009

  • Voting Deadline: March 28th 2009

  • LaraW

  • Rocketeer

  • kenshin

  • walorotary


Okay, so this is how voting will work. Once I receive all of the entries I will upload them to my domain under anonymous file names. Our panel of four judges (experienced and novice photographers alike) will judge all of these photos based on their merits (composition, execution, creativity, etc.). From all of these entries, the judges will chose the Top 10 photos that they feel best represent the theme.

Once the Top Ten are chosen, they will be posted in this forum for the entire community to vote upon. We will allow two weeks for the public to vote on all entries before naming a winner. Once a winner is chosen, we will begin the process anew! The winner will be asked to be a judge next month.


A pat on the back for now.

Re: Mazda3Forums Photography Contest -- March 2009

no borders, watermarks, etc...

just a bare photo....most of us can tell who took what picture even with a simple border.

also, strip the exif if you can. in photoshop, -> save for web devices will remove the exif.
