I encourage photos which emphasize lines, colors (or tones), shapes, composition, texture and so on, rather than "a good subject".
It may have a readily recognisable main subject, or not. It may contain a human or not.
Judging is entirely subjective!
You may use imaging software for the usual refining of contrast and so on, but otherwise, "straight" photos have better chances than much-manipulated ones (such as putting an object in different surroundings or changing colors dramatically).
- Each author may send one (1) picture.
- The picture may not previously have won prizes or have been published in a professional publication, on- or offline. New photos are encouraged.
- The author's name must be in the file name. (Example: joe-blow-13.jpg)
- No text on the picture.
- Shortest edge at least 1200 pixels, longest edge less than 3000 pixels.
- JPGs only. Maximum file size: 900 kb.
- I acquire the rights to publish for free any entry here. Entrants keep all other rights.
Send entries to my googlemail address, which is eolake. Or use the address here.
Note: this contest does not have anything to do with Domai.com (and is not meant for nudes, though they're not prohibited).
Note 2: if wished, the prize can be converted to a 8-year Domai (or GN) membership.
