Arrow The 2009 End of Year “Open Challenge”

The 2009 End of Year “Open Challenge”

My Idea: A great opportunity to share our best photos of the year, and because the theme and time span are so wide, the quality should be very high! I am certainly looking forward to seeing the best we have.

In brief: Choose your best three images, any theme or style. Ensure your images are a maximum of 800 pixels along its widest/longest edge, up to 512Kbytes in size and with the EXIF data intact. The images must have been taken by you on an E-series camera between 1st January 2009 and 31st December 2009 and be in jpeg format.

Prize: None, other than the right to use “Winner of the E-System User Group 2009 Open Challenge” in your forum signature!

  1. Photos must have been taken (dated in EXIF) between 1st January 2009 and 31st December 2009 inclusive and arrive in my email inbox (see below) before the end of 31st December 2009.
  2. Photos will be posted during the first week of January 2010 for registered users to vote upon.
  3. Votes will be accepted from initial posting up to the 31st January 2010.
  4. Results will be announced early week commencing 1st February 2010.
  5. You must be the photographer who created the images in order to enter the challenge, and all entries must be visibly anonymous (No water marks or distinguishing features)
  6. Entries submitted to previous challenges will be eligible providing all the other rules/conditions specified in these rules are met.
  7. Images should be sent to the challenge organiser and you must indicate in the email (a) your real name, (b) your e-group forum name and (c) a title for each of your photos. Any entries that are not clearly identifiable and verifiable won't be entered into the challenge.
  8. Entries should contain no watermarks, distinguishing effects or borders.
  9. You must ensure your images are a maximum of 800 pixels along its widest/longest edge.
  10. Each image file size must not exceed 512Kbytes and must have the EXIF data intact (so that this can be verified by the organiser)
  11. Each image must be in jpeg format and have been taken on an E-Series camera.
  12. You need to be registered on e-group.uk.net forums to qualify for entry into the challenge. The organiser may also enter the challenge (the entries are anonymous and the organiser is trusted to record votes accurately).
  13. Up to three entries are permitted for this challenge. But if you want to withdraw an entry or replace it with another that's OK, you must make it clear in an email to the challenge organiser before the closing date, also ensure the email contains clear instructions and (if required) your replacement picture.
  14. All registered members of the e-group forum may vote, including those who submit entries.
  15. Those who submit entries may vote for their own photo but are expected to allot their choices fairly on perceived merit.
  16. Voters should list their three choices in order of preference, by display number and title to avoid confusion.
  17. Points will be allotted as follows: three to first choice, two to second choice, one to third choice.
  18. This competition is just for fun and by entering or voting you accept to abide by the spirit of this competition and acknowledge that the decision of the judge is final

Please email the images to graydon63@googlemail.com and ensure you put Open Challenge and your forum user name in the Title.

I hope everyone likes this idea and many of us find the time to have a good rummage through this years work to find three stunning entries!

Good Luck!
