Welcome to the Photography Contest!

Welcome back for another round of the DC Photography contest, come and show us what you've got! 

 

This time, the theme is: Sports

 

Submission deadline: September 19

 

Voting deadline: October 3

 

Rules:

- One entry per person.

-A photograph is defined as an image made using a camera or phone camera

-Screenshots are not allowed

- Picture has to be made by yourself and can't be just a reproduction of someone's work. If someone else's work is in the picture, there needs to be something extra.

- No manipulation besides basic photo adjustments (contrast, exposure, cropping, color balance, lighting, etc.).

- No text or framing in the photo. A signature/watermark is just fine, but it's preferable if you don't have "O Hai Eye Hav3 T3XT" (or something similar) present in the photo.

- When voting, please don't select your own image. This will ensure fairness.

- You are free to submit an old photo; you don't need to take a new one just for this competition.

- Winner hosts the next contest.

I dont think a virtual mice race counts, but there it goes anyways- pure chaos and lag included.

I said it before, screenshot would not be count as photography. Please bring something taken with camera next time.

You are welcome to not vote for it!

 

It is a point, though, as I debated that myself. Could we add that to the rules going forward? 

 

"Screenshots are/are not allowed."

 

Please feel free to give feedback on this so the next host will know what to add! Thanks.

I'm not sure about my wording in English, but I'd like to add rules something like this,

 

We are submitting photos. Which means some images taken with camera are allowed. Not digitally created images nor scanned images.

The same person posted another screenshot when I hosted and I deffinitively didn't accept it. It shouldn't be said it isn't allowed as the rules   and title are already clear that it is about photography and screenshots are not photos.

Far too complicated wording. "Screenshots are not allowed" is much better.

Agree that we should specify "no screenshots". That is not photography.

Considered about some language that thinks all variations of image as 'photo'.

There has been no issue at all except screenies.

I agree that a screenshot is not a photograph and does not belong in this contest, and I also agree that simple wording is best. Perhaps we need two new bullet points?
 

-A photograph is defined as an image made using a camera

-Screenshots are not allowed

I like that. Good clear wording and may head off future problems.

Congratulations, @Swiftphoenix! :)

I'll edit the new bit into the rules to make your copy/paste easier.

Urgh. Turns out I can't because the poll has closed.

I was going to add it as the first bit before 'has to be done by yourself'.

-A photograph is defined as an image made using a camera or phone camera

-Screenshots are not allowed
