The theme for JULY is IT'S HOT OUTSIDE! Our June Monthly Contest Winner, Karen O'Hern has no further explanation for the theme. So the interruption and creativity is completely up to you! Let your creativity run wild, and we can't wait to see what you come up with!
The July contest will be open for entries beginning on Monday, July 1, 2013 and runs until midnight Monday, July 29, 2013.
THIS IS NOT AN
"OFFICIAL" MEET UP!
MEANING...The date this event is scheduled for is just a place holder for the deadline of the Monthly Photo Contest!
We are NOT meeting anywhere to shoot!
The July Guest Judge is:
George Jardine took his degree in commercial photography and worked as a professional photographer for 10 years. He has photographed food, fashion, architecture and sports, including work for the NFL and NBA, before "going digital". His work has appeared in Sports Illustrated, Better Homes and Gardens, Interior Design magazine, and many other publications. Following that, George joined the digital revolution, working in digital color prepress and then joining Adobe Systems in 1993. As Digital Video Evangelist, George taught seminars and workshops in Premiere, After Effects and Photoshop. Re-joining Adobe in 2002, he began work on the Shadowland project, which is now Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. George currently consults with professional photographers, teaches workshops, and runs his online video tutorial business.
A COUPLE OF SPECIAL NOTES:
YOU HAVE TO HAVE TAKEN THE IMAGE YOU ARE ENTERING: We know this should be obvious, but we just want to clarify this. So no restored photos, Photoshop compilations or creations etc.
YOU CANNOT ENTER A PHOTO THAT HAS BEEN ENTERED IN A PREVIOUS MONTHLY CONTEST AND WON 1ST OR 2ND PLACE OR HONORABLE MENTION! Again, we know this should be obvious, but just in case you were thinking about doing this, we have been keeping records of the Monthly Contest Winners for quite a few years.
ONLY 1 ENTRY, PER MONTHLY CONTEST, PER GROUP MEMBER!! You can post multiple images to the Photo Album, but be sure to mark the additional images as EXHIBITION ONLY!
PLEASE NOTE: If you paid your $10.00 contest fee to enter last month's contest YOU DON'T have to pay again to enter the monthly contests for the rest of the year.
IF YOU HAVEN'T paid to enter the contest, please be sure to do so BEFORE you enter your photo. (The payment link can be found on the left sidebar where it says "Contest Entry Fee. You don't need a Paypal account to pay, just a credit card.) If you don't pay, no worries, your image will just be flagged as exhibition only!
TO POST YOUR ENTRIES:
- Click the "PHOTO" tab on the navigation bar at the top of the Meetup site.
- In the "PHOTO" tab, there will be a PHOTO ALBUM titled "2013 July Photo Contest: "IT'S HOT OUTSIDE!"
- Upload your entry there
- Don't forget to give it a creative title, or I will give it a generic one! LOL...much better if you name your image!
- All submissions will be posted on this Meetup site. If you don't want your image online, please don't post it!
