Photo contest: Children In Color

I'm awarding three prizes of $100 for what I judge to be the best color photograph of a child or children sent to me before 15 July 2010.
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 three (3) pictures.
  • 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-smith-13.jpg)
  • No text on the picture.
  • Shortest edge more than 1200 pixels, longest edge less than 3000 pixels.
  • JPGs only. Maximum file size: 1500 kb.
  • I acquire the rights to publish for free all entries here. Entrants keep all other rights.
  • I plan that in the last half of July, I will post several of the best entries, and the winners. 
  • I require a paypal address to pay to.

Send entries to my address, which is eolake. Or use the address here.

Have fun! - Eolake

Note: this contest is unrelated to my commercial site.

Aw, I love your contests because they are so personal, it's fun selecting a photo for an online friend.
I'm going to participate, of course, the second time that I'm taking part in such an event, and both were for your blog.

Hey Alex, thank you so much ! Well, the thing is that there are children pics I took that I love, but if I send them to this contest, then they have "already been on a contest", somehow they become "used", and I love them too much. Actually I sent my very favorite child portrait to the last portrait contest, so I cannot use it any more. But it's encouraging you wanna see pics of mine, I should reactivate my photo blog. Thanks ! :)

Of course it's only in my blog's contests you can't use that pic anymore. Otherwise they are still your pictures.
