Beyond Phototips’ Photography Contest

I’ve been wanting to organise a photography competition on BeyondPhototips.com ever since the PhotoProjects got a positive response. Now, we’ve got our first year under our belt, the Beyond Phototips Flickr Group, and some prizes in hand! and I think we’re ready to go…

The publishers of Tom Ang’s book Fundamentals of Photography: The Essential Handbook for Both Digital and Film Cameras got in touch with me a couple of weeks ago, wanting to give away a few copies of the book. I should be receiving a copy in a couple of days and will do a reivew of it at that time, but I’d like to announce the competition first.

The Prizes

Three Prizes to be won.

  1. One copy of Fundamentals of Photography and one Amazon.com gift card for $50.
  2. Two Prizes. One copy of Fundamentals of Photography each to two winners.

Not bad for a first competition…

The Competition

In this last week, I’ve given you some tips on how to become more observant in your daily life. We’re going to see how creative you can get with DETAIL in this competition. Try to dramatise a detail from some object that you would normally not have even noticed… Try to get creative with it, and have fun. At the same time remember that you should always strive to show the best of your work when displaying it to the world.

Don’t let that keep you away from the competition. Remember the Parkour way… Practice, Practice, Practice… Keep at it, and you’ll get where you want to be.

There will be at least 2 judges, one being me; the other, I’ve not decided on, but will let you know in a future post.

Submissions

Submissions will have to be made in the Beyond Phototips Flickr Group. If you don’t have a flickr.com account, get one… the accounts are free, and… They’re a great place to meet like minded photographers… 😉

Remember to add your photograph to the group and tag your photographs with bpcomp1-me or else you submission will not be considered part of this competition. How many submissions per person? 2 sounds like fun… so up to two photographs with this topic…

We’ve got to have a deadline too… and the 15th of December sounds good… that way you will have enough time for Christmas fun. And maybe we can announce the winners before Christmas too…

21st of December – a good date: that’s when you’ll hear who the winners are.

Good luck, and I hope to see some brilliant entries.

Note: Shipping of the books is in the hands of the publishers and I will only be able to confirm when the books have been shipped. The winners will have to get in touch with me to claim their prizes.
