ECM Fairy/Fae Photo - Atypical

Submissions of photo-only artwork images. Read the image-rules on Elftown Creature Marathon (In short, it has to be your image and it has to be free to copy, but it doesn't have to be new). The goal of this contest is to get a nice image of an 'atypical' fairy to put on top of the Fae page.

Add your image and a link to your house here.
To upload your image full-size you can use the feature 'Upload a folder of images' that is shown on your house.
This feature allows you to upload one, multiple images or zip-files in their original size to a wikipage.
Once you click this link you can follow the instructions. See also uploading images.

In regards to 'stock photos':

The stock image has to be that of an Elftown member and for a photo entry, there has to be a substantial amount added/done with it to enter it. - The Council.

Exceptions might be offered if there is a valid reason for it. But, if you do submit more than one image, you will greatly lower your chance of winning, as the votes for your style will be spread out on two entries.

Upload a great looking photograph of an 'atypical' fairy or a realistically looking photo-manipulation or a dressed up human in case you can't find a real fairy...

Except for the normal badges and stuff, the winner will get credits on what we hope will be the best page about fairies. We will pick one fairy-photo or more as winners.

Please note the extremely long deadline! It's because fairies tend to be pretty rare and we want the best shots we can get.

Any entry that does not follow the "Fairy/Fae theme", will be removed.

Photography with a minimal amount of manipulation. We don't want images that look too artistically modified.

If you have photos of 'typical' fairies, you're welcome to submit them here:


ECM Fairy/Fae Photo.

- "FAIRY" images
- The BEST QUALITY images
<i> represent Elftown having the best Fae Page on the Internet as part of the Elftown Creature Marathon!

This may be helpful:
- Fae.
- Fairy.

Brief description:
Appearance: Mainly female, but there are also males, and child-faeries are actually just as considerable as grown fae. They look young, although they may be hundreds of years old.

Three important notations:

---> #1: When the finalists are posted in the Main Street Poll or on a public poll page, the participants are not allowed to beg for votes for their own entry. Do not ask people to vote for your entry via private messages, guestbook messages, moods, wikis, or by any other means. Your entry will be disqualified if you are caught doing so. It is perfectly fine to advertise THE POLL, however!
---> #2: If you feel any of the entries break the rules, please speak up before the entries make it to the polls. You can still speak up even after the contest is closed, as long as the polls have not yet gone up yet. Complaints received after the aforementioned will not be considered valid.
---> #3: For discussions about the Elftown competitions: Here it's discussed if an entry is in accordance with the rules and similarly more complicated issues that can't be solved with a simple wiki-comment. Go to: <forum:Elftown contests>

/Thank you - the ECM Mods and the Elftown Council.

Remember, we want to stay away from elves here. Save your elves for the ECM Elf Session that's to be the next 'featured creature'.

How to post your entry:
Add your username and entry after the last one that has been already posted. Number your entries, thumbnail them to 300 (Please upload big images!), and separate them with the <hr> tag.

Title your entries, please!

A title more than just "Fairy or Fae" is needed.
Thank you!

Where did all the comments go?? :D I love it! It's absolute the best picture I've seen in ages! Way to go [moira hawthorne]! We can always expect great things from you :)

2008-08-01 [moira hawthorne]: sad its the only entry.

2008-08-01 [Ramirez]: There's still plenty of time for more. =P

2008-08-01 [moira hawthorne]: Id LOVE to see more!

2008-09-05 [FetishFaerie]: Is this too "modified" for this particular contest..? - all images used are my own, and I'm also the model.
It's really just layering frost under and over the figure.

2008-09-05 [moira hawthorne]: ooooooo thats lovely! I hope its accepted

2008-11-02 [arthemis_]: Well, three guesses who wins this :p

2008-11-02 [moira hawthorne]: yeah it was pretty lame... [FetishFaerie] didnt get a response to her... which i think is awesome...

2008-11-02 [arthemis_]: I like the one of [FetishFaerie] too, but yours is a true winner anyways :D As I have said like already three times before :P

2008-11-03 [moira hawthorne]: a win when yours was the only entry is just a tat hollow tho

2008-11-05 [moira hawthorne]: please remove my entry from this contest

2008-11-08 [Artsieladie]: I removed your entry as you have requested. I'm sorry that you decided to, but it's your decision. :'/

2008-11-08 [moira hawthorne]: thx u
it was lame to have a contest that only one entry was approved for... winning b/c you have no competition is lame an an insult to my effort

2008-11-08 [Artsieladie]: I understand your reasoning. ^ ^

2008-11-12 [arthemis_]: I do to, but still it's a shame. It was a beautiful photo!
