Exquisite Canvas Sponsored Spring Photo Challenge

We have been contacted by Mr. Dustin Becker of Exquisite Canvas and he has graciously donated one 11x14 custom canvas printing service retail value of $80 to our group.

The organizing team has decided that the best way to give this prize away is to have a special anonymous photo challenge (separate from our usual monthly photo contest).

The rules for this photo challenge are as follows:

  1. The challenge is open the date that this challenge is posted and closes on May 31, 2013
  2. One entry per paid member
  3. The photo theme is open, the photo submission can be any subject and post processing is at the discretion of the artist
  4. The photo must be taken within THE LAST 12 MONTHS.
  5. The meta data for the photo must accompany the photo upon submission
  6. All submissions must be emailed to [masked]. The photos will be posted by the organizers so that all photos will remain anonymous
    NOTE: any photos posted in the album by a member will be deleted
  7. All photos submitted must be web size or under (500k)
  8. On June 1st, 2012 the membership will be asked to vote and will be given until June 8, 2013
  9. The submission with the most votes will be awarded the canvas print
  10. In the case of a tie the organizers will determine the winner
  11. The winner will be responsible for submitting his/her photo to Exquisite Canvas to obtain their canvas print. The organizers will not partake in this process. The contact information, file format etc. is listed below if you need further clarification prior to submitting your winning photo to Exquisite Canvas, you will be required to contact them yourself.
    • One 11x14 custom canvas printing service retail value of $80
      The piece is printed to our top quality whiter than white canvas then protected from moisture, wear and UV with a sheet laminate. The canvas is then stretched over a solid wood 1x2 stretching frame that is custom sized for your piece. Once it’s stretched we finish the edges with a matte black edging and add wire and plaques if requested. We don't at this time offer mirror or gallery wraps
    • Shipping is primarily Canpost or personal delivery. Turn around is typically less than 2 weeks with RUSH orders possible

    Once the results are determined (maybe they are), would it be possible for the people who took the photos to indicate which is theirs? I'd really like to know who is behind some of the work.

      it was an anonymous entry, but for sure, if the photographer would like to identify themselves, it would be interesting for everyone else to see. I often forgot who entered which photo as soon as I posted them since I usually just do it really quick from my phone.

  • Laurice B.

    Individuals are more then welcome to indicate in the comments that they are the photog:)

    am not a wiz here but what is the meta data ...is that the iso etc that comes with the picture in the photo shop?

    May 26, 2013

    • Laurice B.

      Yes, meta data is the parameters of the camera settings. We were interested in the date taken but now that the we opened up the timeframe it will no longer be required.

      Don't feel bad deb I asked the same question

  • Pearl E N.

    Is the contest closed as of May 31 and how is the winner determined?

    June 3, 2013

    • Kristina

      the contest is closed. soon every member will vote for the best image

      June 3, 2013

  • Leanne Prins D.

    Also, this may seem like a silly question, but can people cast a vote for their own entry or not?

    June 2, 2013

    • Kristina

      in all the other contests we were not allowed to vote for our own photos.I am sure it applies to this one as well..just to be fair

      June 3, 2013

    • Leanne Prins D.

      I think that's fair too, but was just checking. :)

    How many votes does each paid up member of Shutterbugs have to cast? Usually it is two, but the rules have been different on this contest.

    June 2, 2013

    • Kristina

      Since there is only 1 prize, so i would think 1 vote per person?

      June 3, 2013

  • Kristina

    Can we vote now?

    ....If I won, would I have to get a canvas print of the photo I submitted, or could I use my canvas print for any of my own photos?

    May 13, 2013

    • Curtis S.

      Dustin will print whatever file you send him... there is nothing saying you need to print the photo that won you the contest...

      1 · May 17, 2013

    • Organizing T.

      Curtis is correct, since this is not stipulated in the rules, if you win, you can print whatever you like.

    going out early tomorrow to get some sunrise images hope the sky co-operates and I have some new images to consider for the contest... I am sticking with the original rules that being I needed to shoot the image in the last 2 months... Push yourself and you just might be amazed at what happens!

    Thank you to the organizers

    May 5, 2013

  • Organizing T.

    PLease note: This is an ANONYMOUS contest so make sure to EMAIL YOUR ENTRY TO [masked]. If you post it yourself it will be deleted.

    Thanks Kaye and all admin! You are the best!!!

    May 4, 2013

    • Kaye

      Yay! Finally a happy camper lol

      May 4, 2013

  • Bruce R.

    Part of the original challenge I thought was to shoot for the best within the limits of where we are. I sort of liked that equal playing field. It had me thinking more of what I could do rather than what I had done. Now I have to go back through 3000 plus travel and radom shots.... life was simpler once

    • Deb D.

      thought we were not to post them under the title for the contest but submit by email?

      May 4, 2013

    • Kaye

      Exactly Kristina, I'm hoping more people will be encouraged to participate. Yes Deb, rules do say to email your entry.

      May 4, 2013

  • Kaye

    Please be advised that due to the unfavorable weather conditions we've had in March and April, we have amended the contest rules to allow photos taken within the last 12 months. May should be beautiful so it's not too late to go out and take a fresh new photo! However, if you had a really awesome one from within the last 12 months we will accept it.

    May 3, 2013

    • Curtis S.

      I disagree with the change in rules but there are way more images that are possible candidates

      2 · May 4, 2013

  • Laurice B.

    Note: recent emails have made me review the rules of this post and I missed the word "PAID" members, consistent with our monthly contest. Therefore I added the word "PAID"

    This organizing group is amazing! A big Thank you to Kaye, Laurice, Shawn and Rick. I appreciate all that you have done and continue to do behind the scenes as well. I know there are a number of others that help you out too - your families, other members. Please let them know, we know they are there too. :)

    What a great idea and a good way to turn a great photo into a piece of art!

    April 2, 2013

  • Marshall

    this will be interesting!!

    March 15, 2013

  • Kristina

    that means we cannot use the same photo as we are using for monthly challenges during the spring month, right?
