What to Enter

We are especially interested in images that showcase the wide range of nature and some sample categories are

  • Portraits
  • Animals
  • Nature
  • Still Life
  • Fine Arts
  • Black and White
  • Sports
  • Travel
  • HDR Photography
  • Colors
  • Creative Use of Things

However, the above list is just an example, so feel free to submit your own category.

Entrants must not submit images that involve human nudity, the willful harassment of wildlife, damage to the environment by the photographer, put any individual or animal in danger, or infringe on the rights of any other photographer or person.

All photographs should accurately reflect the subject matter and the scene as it appeared. Photos that have been digitally altered beyond standard optimization (removal of dust, cropping, reasonable adjustments to exposure, color and contrast, etc.) will be disqualified. Multiple exposures that have been combined to produce a single “High Dynamic Range” image are acceptable. Images that do not meet these requirements may or may not be judged at the judging panel’s sole discretion.

How to Enter

First, you must like our page. Then submit your photos though “Photo Contest 2013” tab in our Facebook fan page (https://www.facebook.com/DdesignerR5). Complete all required fields, including name, email and other information about your photo submission.

Digital images that are sent via mail or email will not be accepted.

Eligibility

Entries may originate in any format — including, but not limited to digital files, digital prints, color transparencies, color prints, or black and white prints — so long as they are submitted electronically. Previously published material for which non-exclusive rights were granted may be entered as long as you still maintain the right to grant us a license (see “Your Rights” below).

Submissions may be watermarked if desired, but the watermark should be inconspicuous enough to not interfere with the judging of the photo.

Judging

Every 10 votes will give you 1 points. Also, every 100 votes will give you additional 10 points. For example, if you received 270 votes you will receive 27+ 20 (for 200 votes) = 47 points. Top 25 photos with highest points will be judged by our panel and will receive up to 25 points. The judges are a panel of individuals, industrialists and professionals who are highly familiar with photography.

Deadlines

Online entries can be uploaded starting 12:01 pm Eastern Standard Time on June 27, 2013. Deadline for submitting entries is 11:59 pm Eastern Standard Time on September 30, 2013.

Entrants may be asked to supplement their submission (such as a paragraph about their photo, the highest resolution version of their photo, or a watermark-free version of their photo) anytime on or after October 10, 2013.

Grand Prize Winner and Runners Up will be announced in early November 2013.

DdesignerR deserves the right to adjust any deadline(s) as the result of causes beyond its immediate control.

Winning Photos

As we mentioned earlier, the judging panel will select approximately 25 photos to be the contest’s Finalists and those will be published on DdesignerR.com.

Your Rights

Your photographs help us to promote our web page and fan page. Thank you for helping to further our mission through your photography.

You will retain all rights to any photograph you submit including ownership if applicable.
