The Great Photography Competition: The Details
Ok people, here you have it.
The competition officially starts next Monday July 5th.
Every 24 hours we will announce two photography missions. You will be required to choose one and submit a photo based on the required criteria. The criteria will be announced 24 hours in advance to give you time to plan.
The missions will be announced at 1600 SPT (SitePoint time - GMT +12 hours) See Current SPT, with the first two being announced on Sunday 1600 SPT
You can submit your image by posting in the daily competition thread
At the end of each 24 hour period, our mystery judge will announce one winner based on the quality and uniqueness of the images and the next two subjects will be announced.
Each daily winner will win a PDF of our new book, Photography For The Web.
At the end of the week, every entrant that submits 7 images (one from each day) goes into the draw to win the grand prize.
The grand prize is a photo showcase in the SitePoint Community blog, along with a brief bio with a link to the winner's site. The prize also includes a brand new SitePoint t-shirt (once it is printed!) and a print version of Photography For The Web.
ALL WORK MUST BE YOUR OWN.
Photos must be shot in allocated 24 hour period. Photos from five years ago are not allowed.
Entrants may take part as many times as they like, but an entrant may only win once (except for the grand prize, for which everyone that submits 7 photos goes into the draw to win).
No goofy Photoshop effects or overdone photo-manipulation. Entrants are allowed to correct colour, contrast, and make minor tweaks such as removing litter or distracting objects from a photo, but no surreal colours or crazy filters.
