Deserving a Feature Challange + $20 RB Voucher

This challenge closed about 7 years ago.

The Challenge

It’s challenge time for the Focus & Lighting Group.

We all have photos in our gallery that we are very proud of and think are worthy of a feature, however, they seem to be overlooked by other people. So, here is your chance!

We want you to submit a photo from your gallery which has never been featured, but you feel should have been.

Judging / Voting Criteria

1 submission per person, and must not have been featured in a group before. I will be checking the entries periodically and if I see a featured banner or comment, I’m afraid it will be removed.

In addition, the photo must be in our group (or we will be unable to feature it if you win), and must follow our new group rules:

Reminder – No:

Images that appear to have elements “cut and pasted”.

Heavy use of any special effect such as HDR, Orton, etc.

Images with frames.

Images with type.

Multiple images such as diptychs or triptychs.

Obvious snapshots.

Nudity, or images glorifying, or promoting hate, violence or abuse.

Continued submission of similar pieces.

Rewards & Prizes

The winning photo will be featured on our group, and a $20 Redbubble Voucher will also be yours.

Additional Information

Good luck and have fun!
