    Hard Drive Give-away : Intermediate members

    With the Advanced members competition starting tomorrow, I thought it was time to announce the intermediate competition

    The Photo of the Week competition starting on 2nd December will be the second of our Prize Competitions.


    The Theme for this Intermediate member competition is PORTRAIT (OF A HUMAN)
    and here is the TWIST.

    Your PORTRAIT entry must have one of the following visible in the entry:

    * A hand-made sign (eg writing on cardboard)
    * A remote control
    * Rubber Bands


    *The item cannot be composited in after the photo is taken (ie you cannot blend two or more images to get your entry).
    *It cannot be a self portrait!
    *The item MUST be visible in the entry.
    *So choose ONE of the items above to include in your PORTRAIT entry.
    *We are giving you over 2 weeks advance notice before the competition opens, so you can have more time to plan and get your entry.


    *Only members who were active (ie your account was not inactive) as at 19th October 2012 are eligible to enter
    *Only members who remain active during the duration from 19th October till the competition is over are eligible to enter
    *Any member is deemed inactive if their account was made inactive based on our Inactive Status cycle


    All other levels (Beginner and Advanced) will also have PORTRAIT as the theme for their competitions, but no prize will be given for those levels and you do not have to include the above items. The Beginner Prize Competitions will be announced soon.

    So get ready for your chance to win a Western Digital 750GB USB3 External Hard Drive,

    thanks to members supporting the Ausphotography site advertisers and the Ausphotography shop,
    as your support makes these prizes possible.

    Any questions about this competition are to be asked in this thread

    One quick question Rick..... Is it allowed to be a self portrait. It would be harder if it wasn't.

    No, as this comp is anonymous, self portraits would defeat that. I have edited the original post above to reflect this...thanks

    We wanted everyone to get creative and ensure that the likelihood of someone having a photo in their catalogue already was most likely NIL, and thus each person would have to go out and take a photo to enter for these competitions.

    That is the idea. We wanted to make sure that people went out and took a photo for this series of comps, not dig out one from the archives, so we came up with ideas that most people would not have an entry already on their hard drives.

    Which is really funny, these are items that most people see/come into contact/or have in there homes - and I know I certainly don't have a portrait shot with any of these items in frame (or even ones that I could photoshop there - though you can't!)

    Does a portrait mean it can only be one person, or can you have two?

    Not being my usual Genre, I wondered the same thing, Googled "Definition of a Portrait in Photography" This was one discussion on the subject
    http://photo.stackexchange.com/quest...it-photography

    Not having a dig here , But seems there are many interpretations of Portrait Images , A = Singular it is Kym, Thanks for the clarification as well
