The latest contest is now under way and the title is:
"Depth of Field".

  • This is one of a series of technical competitions. Lets see how creative you can be!
Please make sure you have read and understood all the rules before submitting your photos.

Remember, everyone is welcome to join in. You don't need to be an expert or to have a fancy camera, this is all just about having fun and, through that, getting better at photography.

Just please make sure you've read all the rules before sending in your pictures.

As per usual, you may submit up to two photos for this competition.

Good luck everyone!

--------------

SEND PHOTOS TO: POTNContest at gmail dot com

Note: Please allow up to 48 hours for your photo to post. If it is not posted within this time frame please send me a note via this forum.

TITLE All e-mails "DOF." If the e-mail subject is not titled as such, I will not open the attachment and you will not be entered into the contest!

Please submit photos in the format "username_0x.jpg", where x is the number of the submission (i.e. 1 or 2).

Please submit a TITLE with your picture along with the DATE it was taken.

Additionally a brief explanation if needed to emphasise how this photo meets the theme.

Anyone can enter this contest. It is not so much we have these in the spirit of competition, rather we have these contests to challenge ourselves and to give ourselves motivation to take pictures that we might otherwise not do. And in turn learn and grow.

RULES

1) The contest will run for two weeks and will end on Friday 16th September, 2005 at 8:00AM GMT.

2) You can submit up to two pictures, and change these if you wish up to the time that the competition ends.

3) Post processing - nothing that substantially changes the original composition of the image. Click herefor clarification.

4) Photos must be no larger than 800 pixels at the longest dimension. Also, please try and keep the filesize down to under 200k if possible to make viewing the gallery easier for modem users.

5) No framing of pictures, text or copyright notices.

6) This competition is a learning experience so we ask you, where possible, to take photos espeically for the contest.

7) At the end of the competition, a separate thread will be started to seek the votes of forum members over the period of 1 week. The person with the most votes will be declared the winner.

:cool: The winner will be recorded in the Hall of Fame

Commenting on photos before the voting closes:
  • You can comment on any photo in this competition, provided it does not have an asterix (*) next to the title.
  • If the photo have an asterix (*) next to the title commenting should wait until after voting
  • I'll assume that everyone is happy for people to comment on their photos.
  • If you do not wish to have your photo commented on, just drop me an email/pm and I'll add an asterix to the title of your photo.
Note: The POTN Photographer of the Year contests are entirely separate from this one, so different rules apply.

Please be patient with me if it takes one or two days for me to get submissions posted.

Finally, please ensure that you have read this post fully and understand the rules prior to sending

There have been on going discussions re: changes to the contest both in the forum and by email. With those in mind, I'm going to relax rule 6 by dropping the part that states:

Older photos may be submitted, provided they have not previously been displayed on POTN Forums

does that mean that a photo taken anytime and also displayed on the forum can be entered?

Would photos that have been in a previous competition also be allowed if they happen to suit a different topic?

Yes to both those questions.

Sorry all, but I'm a bit behind on uploading photos at the moment. This is because I started a new job yesterday and so things are pretty hectic. I'm hoping to get home at a reasonable hour this evening so will get everything up to date then.

Hi Dimman, here is your answer:

"SEND PHOTOS TO: POTNContest at gmail dot com". Also, read Sam's first post (here) for more details.

Hope that helps.

Thanks Matty. I'm back online again now but will definitely give you a call if I get snowed under again.

For everyone else - there's a load more photos online now. Keep them coming! :D

I have a question/problem regarding the following:

"Please submit photos in the format "username_0x.jpg", where x is the number of the submission (i.e. 1 or 2)"

That means we have to put our entries in a different directory for each contest, otherwise we have to delete the previous contest entries. Hope that makes sense.

I suggest the name should take the contest number and the person's name.

For example: Contest30_joe_1

What do you think.

Edit: I'm awaiting a word on the above before I send my pics to Sam. The naming convention is giving me a hard time.
