Pick Me! Pick Me! Bag Yourself a Feature Challenge.

This challenge closed over 7 years ago.

The Challenge

One of the great tasks that we get to do as moderators is to pick the weekly (more-or-less) set of featured images. It really is fun to go through the gallery and pick 12 images we feel represent the group and showcase the wonderful talent you all have.

That said, there are times when we need a rest! We want you to enter your very best image, one that you think is ideal for our weekly feature.

Judging / Voting Criteria

Vote as many times as you like, but please bear in mind the group’s rules, they can be found here but in summary – no HDR, nor Orton, no faked DOF, no collages or montages. No textures – they tend to distract from the DOF.

As the images will be featured, they must be accepted into the group – any images not submitted for moderation (or already in the group) when voting starts will be removed without notice.

Rewards & Prizes

The image with the most votes gets to be the avatar, the next 9 highest votes will be the other features. As there are 12 featured images, we will then pick 2 ’moderator’s favourites’ to complete the set.

(This is a slight change to the original rules, I’d forgotten we only see a top 10 in the challenge results.)

Additional Information

We need 12 winners, which means we need at least 12 entries. If we don’t have 12 entries by the time voting starts the challenge will be void – please help and enter the challenge!
