Black and White
We had some really great shots last week in the Feathered Friends contest. This week, we are going old school with some good old black and white photography. Black and white photography has a special place in my heart because some of my first pictures were on black and white film and I have spent many hours in the dark room over my time as a photographer.
Black and white photography is all about telling a story. It removes all the distractions of color and really isolates your subject. I can't wait to see what you all come up with for this week.
How is the Deranged Photography Contest set up?
Every Sunday, I will announce a new theme for the week and you will have until Saturday to get your submission in. There will be two tiers for the contest. A professional tier and an amateur tier. When making your submission, you must state which tier you will be competing in. I usually get a lot of entries, so make sure to follow all the rules or else your submission won't count and will likely be ignored.
I will not allow any entry that is not your own original photography. If you are caught plagiarizing someone else's work, you will be flagged and banned from participating in any future contest. So make sure that the photos you are submitting are ones that you personally take.
You only get one entry per week, so make sure to spend some time on getting a good photo and creating a fun post about your entry. You will need to submit a link to your post in the comment section of the contest announcement post and you will need to include at least one image from your post in the comment you make. You are encouraged to share more than one image in your post. The more effort you put into your post, the more chance you have for curation and possibly winning your tier.
On top of a chance for curation from Liketu, the top three entries in each tier will be awarded as follows:
|1st||8 Hive||4 Hive|
|2nd||5 Hive||3 Hive|
|3rd||3 Hive||2 Hive|
- Your entry must be made on Liketu.
- No plagiarism. If you are caught plagiarizing, you will be flagged and banned from future contest.
- You must state the tier you are competing in, Professional or Amateur.
- You must comment on the weekly contest announcement post with a link to your entry and at least one photo from your post.
The rules are pretty easy, so make sure to follow them or your entry will be ignored.
