NOTE: There has been a change in the submission process. Please reread the HOW section.
***************WINTER PHOTO CONTEST**************

PRIZE – Key code for Phase One’s Capture One LE RAW processing software (with a free upgrade to Capture One 4) from Sandisk. This is a $130 value! This offer is good until March 27th, 2008.

THEME – “Winter” This can be anything from a winter landscape to a macro of a snowflake. Use your imagination and show us how great winter can be!


When – Starts February 15th at 12 am and ends February 28th at 11:59 pm, 2008. Time of submission will be established by the time stamp on the email containing the submission. All pictures must be taken during this period and all pictures must be submitted to the email below (with exif data intact) for judging during this period. A decision will be rendered on March 1st. Judges decision is final.

Who – All NEF members are eligible to enter except the three judges (Twoshadows, Nvr2low, and Zacker).

Change in submission process, please reread VVVVVVVVV
How – One entry per person. All entries must be emailed to twoshadows@gmail.com during the time period specified above. Include your NEF screen name in the email. Pictures must be exactly 800 pixels on the long side and must be free of borders, frames, watermarks, signatures, copyrights, etc. EXIF data must be intact. Pictures without exif data will be disqualified. Each entrant may submit one and only one photo to the email address above. Please make sure it is the picture you want to submit. Digital manipulation is fine, but this is a photography contest and as such the photo must carry it's own weight in spite of any digital enhancements. All submissions will be posted and made available for viewing after February 28th, 2008.

Good luck!

I guess this is the part where your imagination has to kick in a little harder than those of us living in a "winter wonderland", lol. Best of luck, Jay. I know you'll do fine :D .

OK This may sound like a real stupid question, but if I submit a photo to this thread using the repy, won't that photo show up here with my ID? How does this work.

Sandy,

Yes it will show up with your ID, but I'm not sure that's a problem. Can you elaborate?

I guess because of this in the HOW rules. watermarks, signatures, Just thought you wanted them to be photographer unkown some how.

Ian, in the rules it states:
"and must be free of borders, frames, watermarks, signatures, copyrights, etc."

I think Sandy belives that this would disqualify him. Or it could be that many online contests are e-mailed as to not give "Sway" over what other would post here.

So if someone brings in a killer shot, other will not submit an image. If its a blind submission, then the top two choices are posted.. If ya follow along that sort of thinking..

Zacker has it right... Ian just wants the images themselves to not have any watermarks, borders, or sigs directly on them (as in during your processing you add those items)... that way no ones image is impeded by any of those items and we all have images "as hung" if they were going in a picture frame or such...
