$800 up for grabs! Photo Competition

From: Jim L.
Sent on: Wednesday, December 23, 2009 7:59 PM
This is a first!

A friend of mine is a part owner in Preferred Landscaping and Lighting. I have photographed their projects before, but this time I am unable to, so I asked him if he would like to have a photo competition with PhotoSA. Here is his response:


We would like to take you up on your offer to put the contest out to the camera club. We would be happy to offer $100 for the best picture at each of the 8 locations listed below. We would like to make sure there are at least three different photographer?s work to pick from for each location. We can judge the pictures by 1/10/10 and award the prizes at that time.

It is our understanding that we will own all of the pictures at the end of the contest.

Thanks for suggesting this innovative solution Jim!

So here are the rules and more.

- By submitting images you understand that they are for "Preferred Landscaping and Lighting" to use to promote their great work! This means that you are giving them usage rights to your work, without any monetary compensation (unless, of course, you are the location winner!)
- Some work could be used that is not one of the winning images!
- If your image is used in the "Preferred Landscaping and Lighting" marketing you have bragging rights: You can say that your work has been used for commercial purposes!!!
- Only submit images if you want your work to be used for marketing purposes!
- All images have the potential to be used in "Preferred Landscaping and Lighting" ads, however, only the best at each location will receive the $100 (8 locations = a total of $800 in prize money)
- "Preferred Landscaping and Lighting" gets to make the choices. All decisions are final.
- All images must be photographed during December 2009 up until the deadline: January 9, 2010. Note: Some of the lights will start coming down on January 1, 2010, so don't procrastinate!!!
- upload in the same way that you do with the regular monthly photo competitions: Login, go to "Photos", go to "Preferred Landscaping and Lighting AND PhotoSA", click on upload photos.
