Competition!

Tue Jan 8, 2013, 1:43 AM
I've decided to have my first competition here at DeviantArt.

Most of my pictures are from the area of my hometown, so you guys have gotten to know a little bit about the place I live. I am interested in your hometown now.
I want you to show me a photograph from where you live. I encourage you to be creative about this.

---How to participate---

*Send me a message with a link to the picture with a short description of where and what.

---Rules---

*The competition is exclusive to my watchers.
*You must be the photographer of your submission.
*I'll only accept one submission each participant, additional submissions will be ignored.

The competition last until February 24th (2013!).

---Prizes---

*1st place
a 16 x 24 inch (41cm x 61cm) photoprint of any of my deviations (winners choice). In addition I will feature the image throughout March.

*2nd place
a 12 month premium membership. In addition I will feature the image throughout March.

*3rd place
a 6 month premium membership. In addition I will feature the image throughout March.

---Who decides who's winning?---
I will decide this myself, but if I'm in doubt I'll get a second opinion from Trichardsen


Should there be any questions, feel free to ask them in this journalpost as others might be wondering about the same thing.

I'm looking forward to seeing your submission :)


Kind regards and good luck!

Tor

Just a silly question: I have pictures from things around my home village that are quite near where I live but those are mostly sacral, monumental, cemetery or tree/nature pieces. Is it allowed to submit e.g. the Cathedral of Limburg which is 60 km away from me? Or castle ruins of Bad Kreuznach, also 80 km away or just Winter at my little creek which is just beyond my garden gates but consists only of barren trees?
I have an aversion against concrete buildings, so it is difficult to find some in my photographs ;)

Great idea. ^^

But I have two questions: Does the submission needs to be a single picture or is a collage also allowed? And should it be just a 'photograph' or is it allowed to work it in HDR?

Greetings

Hey, there! I'm still kind of new here and I haven't taken part in any competitions yet. The problem is that I have no idea how to submit to contests. Please, help! :)

The way you submit to my contest is simply to send me a link to your deviation :) Whether your submit the thumbcode or the link doesn't really matter, I'll find it :)

Ohhh I am SO excited for this!!! :D I normally don't do competitions much, but you're awesome, and this sounds super fun. Plus the first place prize of having one of your photos :3 Eeee! Second and third place are wonderful too! I'll get brainstorming while I wait for this inversion to clear out.
And one question, is it okay if I use an older photo, or do I have to take one within this time? :x

If I submit an entry once but change my mind about it, can I take the original one down and submit a new one?
Reply
:icontorivarn:
torivarn Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
Sure, but I would recommend thinking twice before submitting - there are still alot of time left to consider which one to submit :)

No, it doesn't. It's your own take on your hometown :)

Does the picture have to be new, or can it be one that we've taken before? I ask because my hometown is pretty un-scenic now with all the snow and dormant trees, but I have a great picture from fall 2011 (and one from 2012, too). If it can be from whenever I'll enter one of those, if it has to be from now I'll try my best to get something :)

Thanks for hosting this :highfive:
