New comp: Oct09 - Single Shot - Snaps

If you managed to vote since we re-started voting on the 11th Nov then YOU DO NOT need to vote again. We did NOT reset the voting for a second time... The email sent out on the 13th was to request those who had problems to return. Sorry if that wasn't clear. (Thank you).

Additional Rules APPLY - Please read carefully!

SINGLE SHOT - SNAPS. - This month's competition is designed to get you *thinking* hard about what you're going to take *BEFORE* you take it. - I want everyone to take Single Shot Snaps. In other words, don't take multiple photos, trying to refine your ideas and perfect your settings. Instead, think about what you're going to take and take only ONE photo. - It can be of anything. - We're after perfection in a single shot!

If you want another guide; take no more than one photo in any given 3 minute period, and each photo needs to be something different, none of the same subject matter.

You might need to be 'out and about' in order for a variety of subject matter to present itself. You might also have to take your camera with you everywhere you go for the whole month.??

This will require honesty as there's no way for us to police this.

When you post your photo to this competition, I want you to start your caption with the initials 'SSS - xxxxxxxx' - this is a way of confirming that you've read these rules and understand what you're doing. - Replace the xxxxx's with your caption... :)

Any which don't have that text in then which don't look like they've been Single Shot Snapped, will be removed and disqualified from the comp. :) - Sounds harsh, but they're my rules and I don't care!... :)

*** All photos must be taken during the month of Oct 2009... ***

Remember, whilst this is for fun, this is a PHOTOGRAPHIC competition, the judging of photos should be based on the merit of the photo, the composition, framing, subject matter etc, the theme is there to provide a guide, inspiration and a challenge.

These are our rules, if you want to join in, feel free, just try to stick to these rules as a guide...

  • Primarily, this is a photographic competition, it's not a competition to see who can fit the theme, it's a competition to see who can create the best photograph.
  • Entries close end of this month (NZ time).
  • All photos should be relevant to the topic
  • All photos should be taken for the competition, not from older images
  • All photos must be submitted before the deadline, submissions will not be possible after the submissions close
  • You may use a computer to fairly adjust your photos, you may change colour balance / brightness / saturation / tone balance etc, you may use masking to do the above, you may re-crop your image, no hue shifts or generation of image detail apart from those permitted above.
  • You may not use your computer to merge images together, or apply effects to your photo; ie: no motion blur etc...
  • Limit yourself to a max of 2 photo entries, you may have to choose, be selective. :)
  • Editors reserves the right to remove any entries which in our opinions aren't proper entries.

    There are no prizes (yet).

    There are no sponsors (yet). Thanks none the less to WEBDES.CO.NZ Ltd for running this for us. :)

    Good luck, have fun, invite your friends to contribute / vote..
