We had so many awesome pet entries this past week. It was cool to see everyone's fur babies. This week, we are going to go with Portraits. A good portrait tells a story about who the person in the photo is. This can be done by capturing them doing what they love, or by having what they love somewhere in the photo. It is all about telling a story about the person through the photo and what is in it.
So go out and get some cool portraits for this week. I can't wait to see what you come up with.
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.
