Photo Comp - LIFE

  • April 1, 2013 · 12:15 AM
  • This location is no longer available

There is no actual meeting up, it's a virtual meet up.

Theme - Life.

Rules

  • RSVP before 1/4/13
  • One photo per person
  • Photo needs to be taken in the last 2 months
  • One vote per person who has uploaded a photo - sorry if you've not uploaded a photo, then you can't vote
  • Winner can decide the theme for the next competition

Uploading photos - Upload your photo between 1/4/13 to midnight 6/4/13. Feel free to give your photo a title if you think it may help the interpretation.

Voting - Voting commences from 7/4/13 to midnight 10/4/13.

Winner - To provide theme for next competition by 14/4/13. If he/she hasn't provided a theme by then, any participants can decide by commenting below - first to comment from 15/4/13 will decide the next theme instead of the winner.

Cameras - You don't need a top of the range camera for this competition - use your camera phones, compact cameras, anything that can take a photo. It's more about getting out & taking photos.

Hocus pocus - There's always some discussion whether photoshop should be used or not. Seeing as people with DSLR's can use filters & camera phones can use apps like Instagram to alter the image, I'm going to say YES you can. We can always meet up & have a discussion about the pros & 'cons' of altering the image another time.

Feedback - Constructive critique is welcome as it helps us all improve. It's not to say the person giving feedback is right either, it can simply come down to personal preference.

Happy snapping!

If you are taking photos during any meet up, please respect other member's wishes if they do not want their photo taken.

    Hi, So who won the Photo Comp Monica? Are you still counting the votes? I'm dying to know! It looked to me like the bird footprints were running away with it at one stage! ;-)

      The birdprints did indeed fly up to the top :). With 6 votes, Tracy is the winner of our very first photo competition! I hope you've all enjoyed taking part & keep your eyes peeled for Tracy's theme for the next one. I know I initially said every two months, but it's going to be quarterly now.

    Get your votes in by the end of tomorrow. We've had entries and just 10 votes so far!

    Just the end of today to upload a photo. You won't be able to vote unless you upload a photo. I'm tempted to have another category for the funniest ;)

      It's ok if you want to start voting now but you only have one vote & there's still time for someone to upload their pic.

    Here's a dumb question Monica, how and where do I upload my photo?

    • Monica

      Naz, that's not a dumb question at all. A link should appear on the actual day for you to upload your photo. Can't wait to see everyone's pics :)

    How about meeting un a café to discuss the pictures? Have them as prints or on viwable on phones/tablets.

    • Monica

      Great idea Jim. Unfortunately I can't commit to hosting it. You could always arrange something between yourselves or if someone else wants to host it as a separate event please feel free :)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
