WINNERS: News article
Hi there fire and water photographers!
The voting is now closed, and the contest theme "Fire AND Water (interacting)" was chosen for our first contest. Thanks to all who voted and thank you once again for the suggestions. Since this idea came from B-Tek, he won a submission to the featured gallery, which will be visible on the group front page.
Rules for the contest:
Every member (aged 13 or older) can enter at most three photos. (If your photos were declined, you can still submit more, but only three per person can go into the folder.)
All work must follow the dA TOS.
You may only submit photos done by yourself.
Follow the topic of the contest, that is, submit photos, that show both fire and water interacting
Please link to this blog entry in your Artist's Comment.
The folder for the contest entries is here. You can already submit, if you want to.
The judges will be the group admins, i. e. Swirlie, Radolex, red-wolf-spirit and as-red-as-fire. We'll pick some semi-finalists and leave the final vote to you in a poll (on my page again, since this is not a super group). The results there will determine the three winners. Thanks to Radolex for his idea on how to evaluate the winners
The contest deadline is December 1, but you may only submit pictures created after October 7 (when the contest was announced). Older pictures were allowed to be submitted until November 1.
All semi-finalists: Journal feature from as-red-as-fire
All winners: Prizes for all semi-finalists, journal features from FireAndWaterPhotos, red-wolf-spirit (maybe she'll even feature all semi-finalists) and maybe some of our affiliates (I'll ask them then), a llama from mg1706 and cobabara, 1 submission to our Featured folder.
Third prize: Prizes for all winners, 25 points from DystantMotion + 5 points from as-red-as-fire
Second prize: Prizes for all winners, 50 points from DystantMotion + 10 points from as-red-as-fire
First prize: Prizes for all winners, 100 points from DystantMotion + 20 points from as-red-as-fire
If you can donate some prizes (e. g. llamas or journal features on your page or in a group you're an admin of) for the winners, that would be great and help a lot!
Thank you for reading and I hope you all have a nice day!
PS: Thanks for announcing our contest!
