Halloween Theme Winners!
Last week the theme was Halloween. It was the first contest here in the Photography Lovers Community and things didn't go as smooth as I had hoped. Hopefully now that I am posting the contests from a more visible account, we will get more interaction and submissions for the contest.
We only had two entries for the contest last week, but they were pretty cool. Both submissions will each receive 10 Hive for participating in the contest, since there is no point in just giving them a small portion of the contest reward pool.
Professional First Place @bil.prag
Amateur First Place @mballesteros
New Theme - Animals
This week should be a lot easier for everyone to take part in. Animals are always fun to take pictures of, but to create a great photo, you will need to get creative.
So let's see your best shots of animals. They can be your pets or wild animals. Sorry insect lovers, this theme does not include bugs, so make sure to enter the correct photo to be eligible.
How is the Photography Lovers Contest set up?
The contest is broken up into 2 different tiers. Each will have a different rewards for the winners based on what tier you enter into.
Here is a breakdown of the rewards based on the tiers:
|1st||5 Hive||4 Hive|
|2nd||3 Hive||2 Hive|
|3rd||2 Hive||1 Hive|
Each contest will be open for submissions for 6 days and close on the 7th day so that winners can be picked and the new post can be made.
There will be a new theme announced each week and the themes are going to be a bit different than the traditional themes. The goal of the themes are to challenge your skill as a photographer and force you to think outside the box to get some really interesting photos.
How to enter
When you enter a photo in the competition, you will state what tier you want to be judged in and locked in for the month at that level.
For example if you enter a photo, you drop the photo in the comment section, state what level of photographer you are, and then give a description of the photograph.
That's pretty much it, drop your main photo in the comment section of this post and state your tier. If you want to make a separate post for your entry as well, that is fine, but for your entry to be valid, your photo and tier must be in here in the comment section of this post. You are also encouraged to join the Photography Lovers Community and make your post to the Photography Lovers Community.
If your post has more than one photo in it, make sure to use the photo you wanted judged as your main photo for your post.
Only one submission per contest. Extra submissions will be ignored.
You can switch your tier ONE time per month, but only if you are moving up into a higher tier, for example if you are currently in the amateur tier, but you think that you have a photograph that you want to enter in the professional tier, you can state that you are changing your tier to professional. You will then be locked into the new tier for the remainder of the month. You are not able to move down to a lower tier, like going from amateur to the beginner tier.
If you do not state which tier you want to be judged in for the month, I will leave a comment to remind you to do so, but if you don't respond, you will be assigned to a tier and locked in for that month.
Plagiarism will not be tolerated in any form. All submissions must be your own work. I will investigate every entry and if you are caught plagiarizing, you will be blacklisted from competing in my competitions and blacklisted in the community.
Thank you for being a part of the Photography Lovers Community here on Hive. We are looking forward to seeing your entry for this contest.
