30th Photo Challenge - "Inspired by a Song Title"

This months challenge is called "Inspired by a Song Title". All tastes in music will be entertained from Sir Cliff to Dizzee Rascal, from Beethoven to Muse whatever takes your fancy

Hope you enjoy the challenge and look forward to receiving your entries.

Greg



The How To Enter Bit

-Max of 800 pixels wide or high
-Up to 512Kbytes
-EXIF intact please
-Taken by you on an E-series camera between Tuesday 1st June 2010 and Tuesday 22cd June 2010 inclusive.
-Please include your name, your forum moniker and a title for the picture.

Full rules:

1. Photos should be taken (dated in EXIF) between Tuesday 1st June 2010 and Tuesday 22cd June 2010 inclusive and sent in during that period. Photos will be posted in the gallery as soon as possible. We will vote in the week after this, voting will be completed by midnight Tuesday 29th June 2010. I will announce the results on Wednesday 30th June 2010.

2. You must be the photographer who created the picture in order to enter the challenge, and all entries must be visibly anonymous and should be sent to the challenge organiser. You must indicate (a) your real name, (b) your e-group forum name and (c) a title for your photo, in the email. Any entries that are not clearly identifiable and verifiable won't be entered into the challenge.

3. Entries to the challenge :-

Should contain no watermarks, distinguishing effects and no borders
Must be jpg format and no more than 800 pixels on the longest edge
Must have been taken on an Olympus E-Series camera
Must have all EXIF data included for the organiser to verify.
Max file size to suit the gallery here is 512kb.

4. 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).

5. Only one entry permitted per challenge please. 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.

6. Voting on the challenge:-

Any registered member of the e-group forum may vote, including those who submit entries.
Those who submit entries may vote for their own photo but are expected to allot their choices fairly on perceived merit.
Voters should list their three choices in order of preference, by display number and title to avoid confusion.
Points will be allotted as follows: three to first choice, two to second choice, one to third choice.


Please email me with the image attached at somewhere and please include the words Olympus Challenge in the title line.

Re: 30th Photo Challenge - "Inspired by a Song Title"

Are there any limits to the choice of song? Could it, for example, be something I or a friend has written?

Re: 30th Photo Challenge - "Inspired by a Song Title"

There are a few springing to mind here too Steve

I was playing a gig on Saturday night and mid way through we were asked to play Lola by the Kinks The best of it was that the fella who asked was about sixty, in full Lola get up, including make up and blonde wig and accompanied by his two "lady friends" was using the Ladies loos

Life can be interesting and varied at times

Re: 30th Photo Challenge - "Inspired by a Song Title"

Hmmm.... been doing it for the past 22 weeks. This should be interesting BUT!
Is this competition opened to people not using the E-system? I've just gone over to the Red and White label camp...

That's unfortunate but all entries must be taken using an E series camera

So, if "The ConstruKction of Light" is allowed, technically this covers any and all photographs. Looks like this challenge will call for some self Discipline.

Re: 30th Photo Challenge - "Inspired by a Song Title"

As with any theme it is up to the imagination of the tog. Whether the theme is picked up upon and found agreeable by the voters is what will count.

So in essence the World's your Oyster Soup Kitchen Floor Wax Museum

Like all such things, it's silly until you know what it means!

What're the rules about the use of Photoshop etc.?
