Monthly Photo Contest: Rules and Clarifications

The first week is hardly over, and the submissions are already pouring in! I've received a number of questions, so I'm going to combine all the information from related posts in a primer right here. Don't be afraid to click the little envelope guy on bottom of the post to let a friend know about our contest! All are welcome to enter!

• Submissions: This month's topic is
"People and Portraits." This theme is, as in all of our future contests, open to interpretation. Low-res (75-100 dpi) jpegs only, please. Contest winners from previous months are not eligible (though at this point it hardly matters). Please email tgibbons@cameraarts.com with your entry, along with your name and medium used. Only one submission per person.

• Judging: The best submissions will be posted on The CameraArts Blog (and collected on Flickr) every Monday through January 1, after which the voting process will begin. Our prestigious jury consists of none other than our own readers here at The CameraArts Blog, FRAMES, and CameraArts.com. Further details about the voting process will be listed here as they develop. Expect to be able to cast your vote January 1, 2007, continuing through the week.

• Awards: Three photographers that receive the most votes will receive one free year's subscription to
CameraArts Magazine. If you already have a subscription, simply add the 6 issues for no cost.

• Fee: There is no fee, so stop freakin' out.

• Copyright info: We will watermark all images, so please
do not place copyright directly on the image. All pertinent information should be included in your email. Applying for the contest implies permission for CameraArts to display submissions on flickr, The CameraArts Blog, and CameraArts.com. CameraArts will have copyright on all submissions, as they appear on these pages. Applicants will retain all private rights to their images. While they are displayed on Flickr, your image will not be available for reproduction or download to anyone outside of CameraArts or The CameraArts Blog.

All images will be watermarked "©CA/(photographer's name)"—as shown below. If you do not wish for your submission to remain on flickr when the contest has ended, email me and I will take it down. Additional categories for future contests will be posted on our website soon. To keep updated on the contest, I strongly recommend for everyone to sign up for our RSS Feed at the right. We want your submissions, so there's no reason not to give us your best shot!
