ECM Fantasy Dwarf Photo

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 a typical dwarf to put on top of the Dwarf 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.

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

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.

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

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

Any entry that does not follow the "Dwarf 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 atypical dwarfs, you're welcome to submit them here, but we'll mark them as outside of contest.

- The BEST QUALITY photos
- The MOST TYPICAL "Dwarf" photos
- LARGE PHOTOS represent Elftown having the best Dwarf Page on the Internet as part of the Elftown Creature Marathon!

Brief description:
Appearance: A race of beings living underground. Although not particularly small, they were usually thought of as ugly. Dwarves originally generated from the soil, forming as maggots in the flesh of Ymir, the primeval giant, whereupon the gods gave them consciousness and intelligence.

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.

2008-02-23 [SilverFire]: Dude. Someone not wishing you a happy birthday doesn't mean they don't appreciate you. :/ That's the worst criteria for deciding who appreciates you I've seen. :P Although it maybe works better in real life.

2008-02-23 [Artsieladie]: Dude? *looks around* I see no one here with this name. :P

2008-02-23 [SilverFire]: How witty of you, assuming 'dude' is a proper noun and all. :D

2008-11-09 [Lord Dog]: Actually, weekend passed. Apparently my new helm was better than I thought...No one was able to get a picture of me in full armor only when I was on the sidelines.

2008-11-09 [Artsieladie]: hehe I couldn't resist about the weekend thing. <img:stuff/zabuN-gif.gif> I see. ;)

2008-11-09 [Lord Dog]: Heh heh, I know just felt I should explain
