Photo Comp idea - Ideas needed please!!

Postby electrongirl » Wed May 28, 2008 10:42 am

Hey everyone!

I have recently become a bit of a photo taking maniac, with my new little camera and all and I have started participating in online photohunt groups.

I thought maybe we could do something similar on here.

Basically we get a theme for the week and we have to either take a photo that matches the theme or find one we already have.

The rules would be pretty basic, the photo must belong to you, not something Googled on the internet!

I want to see how many people would be interested in doing this before I organise it all.

Please vote!!

I've ordered a new camera so I'd like to participate depending on how much free time I have. Some weeks I'm absolutely snowed under with uni work though so I'm not sure I'd be reliable enough to be counted on for this!

Can I vote for the fourth option of, "I'll do my best!"? :lol:

Ok let me fill you all in on what the dealy is with this idea I have.

I have slightly changed the comp to a monthly one and we will see how it goes for the first month to see if it will continue on.

For a good idea on how it works have a look here as this is where I got the idea from: http://www.flickr.com/groups/monthlyhunt/

Basically I set a list of 12 things that participants need to take a photo of and then make a mosaic of with tools I will provide. All pictures need to be taken within the month of the competition and they also need to be photos you have taken yourself, not something you looked up on the internet.

The way one person interprets the item will differ from another person which makes this interesting.

For example, say the item is “Shoe” someone might post a picture of a pair of sneakers, another person might post a picture of a horse shoe, someone might post a picture of a shoe store. It basically just needs to be something to do with that particular thing.

I have been talking to Scott (Admin) about it and he is happy to provide a prize which will be awarded to the winner. Winners will be voted for my members of the forum.

I volunteer myself to help with anyone that needs help with rezising photos etc. I won’t be actually participating in the comp at first as I want it to be fair!!

I hope this helps give you all a better idea of it.

I know its nothing to do with weightloss but it will be fun!!

ok the comp will begin on the 1st July and I will get Scott to set up a new section for it.

What I want from you guys is ideas for the list of things. If you need an idea of what kind of things, have a look here for an idea of what the Flickr group has had: http://www.flickr.com/groups/monthlyhun ... ss/132018/

I thought that way we all contribute to it!!

Oh that sounds so cool. They had quite a list compiled & I liked quite a few of them but here is some I came up with.

1) Smile
2) Companionship
3) Hands
4) Youth
5) International culture

Interpret as you wish
