Hello dear members and watchers of PhotographyWorld
We have been a little behind our schedule for the journals in the last weeks, and it has a special reason:
It's about time for a new contest.
We want to have Springtime Colours from you.
Spring is a wonderful part of the year, and everyone has a special view on that time when the flowers bring us the colours back.
Springtime is inspirational and means we get more creative.
I don't know if you ever read the book 'The 35th of May, or Conrad's Ride to the South Seas' by Erich Kästner. A young boy shall create his own story to improve his fantasy.
We want you to do the same with a photo. Create your own story for springtime colours. What do we give you?
We create two folders. One is for the 'usual' springtime-colours. You can take pictures of flowers or of other things of nature, colourful things or springtime situations.
Folder number two will be more conceptual. We won't accept any 'usual' springtime-colours here. Be creative. Do what Kästners character would do.
(Extra points for everyone creating a Kästner related picture.)
You can submit one picture per folder.What do you do?
Create an original photo. It has to fit into one of the folders, so be creative and colourful.
Show us, that the picture was made for the contest: It has to be new (created after March 23th
) and you should mention our group and the contest in your artists-comment. We would also prefer to see a short text of yours in your artists-comment, telling us your intention for the picture.
Make sure we can see the EXIF-data of the photo. (EXIF-data are the information about camera, date taken, focus-length, ISO, shutter-speed, aperture and software you might have used for small editings. Usually the camera will automatically combine these information with the picture and therefore it will be given to dA with the submission. You might loose the information by using some editing-software. So take care of it.)
Don't break our rules. All of our rules apply to the contest as well as to every other folder.
Have fun by creating great pictures.Rules in short:
- Two folders: 'Springtime-Colours' and 'Conceptual Springtime-Colours'
