About time I used some of my pictures
Firstly, you MUST take the picture within 1 hour of entering it into the comp......or it will be classified an ARCHIVE...(soon to be banned unless my campaign gets going)...
Only joking,....you must travel afar to get a shot to fit (your interpretation) of the months theme....its 'Beach' this month....bit of a toughie..
You need to resize your picture to 800 x XXX pixels, and save as a file less than about 120k (I think) before posting your new 'article', so you need some editing software...
First thing might be to read through the poll thread at the top of this forum
The comp is in the AV community section. Just attach your picture to your post (size as per the rules) or host it somewhere and put in a picture link to show it direct.
All of the guidelines are here.
Everyone is welcome to join in and have a go at interpreting that month's theme, currently with either an archive shot or one taken specifically for the competition.
There is a thread here where we are discussing the use of archive shots, you can see that there are some quite strong aruments on both sides, please join in, your opinion will be welcome.
Just after the competition was launcehd, Stuart arranged a monthly prize for the winner, sponsored by Fotoview.co.uk, of a 10x8 print of the winning entry.
It's a bit of fun, which was originally designed to give people the impetus to learn more about photography by practice.
OK I have entered one - shot with my video camera photo mode then shrunk using MS paint
