I'm glad to present you guys a brand new Contest Series "Showcase", and presenting a competition that you guys will surely love. Its about taking your photography skills to an amazing level by going beyond your limits to prove your excellence. So if you are a photography lover and love to capture the pictures right out of phone then its a great opportunity for you to show off your skills. So without taking your time I am coming straight to the point.
The Main Concept: How it Goes
It's an Endless, never-ending Photography Contest series.
AIM: To test up the photography skills in you and what kind of creative and how much active mind you've got.
There will be a showcase every week and every month.
Let's talk about the Weekly Showcase first
How to participate in a Weekly Showcase
- Post a seperate thread under the category type - "Album", with a Tag of "Showcase" in the Title. For example, "[Showcase] Kittens Photography".
- The thread should follow the theme given for a particular week. So, all pictures in the thread will be according to the theme.
Yes, there will be a different theme every week. Isn't it exciting?
Prizes: Privileges: If you win a Showcase competition
- Photography Medal (which is solely exclusive to Showcase Winners only).
- Mi Community Forum Credits.
- Your thread will be Promoted with the Theme thread for the very next week.
Who doesn't wants to get his/her work promoted? Of course it's a big privilege.
Forum Credits and Medals will be distributed after the end of a particular month.
Participation period - Till next to next Wednesday
Selection Time - Thursday-Friday
Poll will be on (Voting Period) - Sat-Sun
Two themes will function parallely, what does it mean exactly?
You'll get to participate in both the themes at the same time for the given time period. That means, you may participate in the preferrable theme of your choice with full flexibilty in courtesy to your opinions and preference.In other words, Both the Themes :
How to win
- Top entries will be decided by Admins and Photography Sections Moderators.
- Top one entry will be PICKED with an open poll by users.
How to participate In the Monthly Showcase
- All the top entries of the Weekly Showcase will be eligible to enter Monthly competition.
- At the end of every month, there will be an open poll to decide the Photography Album of the month and winner of the Monthly Showcase.
- Need to create a seperate thread under category type - Album.
- Need to add a tag in your Album thread Title as, Showcase
For Instance, [Showcase] Kittens Photography
- Only one thread is required to be eligible to participate in a particular Weekly Showcase
If a person make 2-3 entries and fails to follow the rules, Only the first entry counts. Other threads will be moderated and their thread titles will be edited amd changed.
If a person is seen spamming with the Showcase tag by making useless/meaningless threads, his all entries will be disqualified for that week.
