ECM Orc 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 orc to put on top of the Orc/Goblin 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 orc or a realistically looking photo-manipulation or a dressed up human in case you can't find a real orc...

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 orcs. We will pick one orc-photo or more as winners.

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

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

- The BEST QUALITY photos
- The MOST TYPICAL "Orc" photos
- LARGE PHOTOS represent Elftown having the best Orc Page on the Internet as part of the Elftown Creature Marathon!
These may be helpful:

Brief description:
Appearance: A tough, warlike humanoid creature in various fantasy settings, often portrayed as misshapen humanoids with brutal, warmongering, sadistic, yet cowardly tendencies, although some writers describe them as a proud warrior race with a strong sense of honor. Orcs are most commonly known to have green skin.

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.

2009-01-02 [Skydancer]: Nods, okies. I am just so tired, and so busy I do not have time to be editing work into orcian or elfish or witchy things, but people are certainly welcome to use my stock and reference to work with. We do have a few thousands of images on ET and DA for folk to work with after all.

2009-02-17 [Jitter]: As I said before, ECM should allow numerous entries per member. then we'd have even more orcs >:3

2009-02-17 [Jitter]: *pokes [Hedda]*

Why don't we change it? :P

2009-02-17 [Falx]: Aye, since only a few of us intrepid shutterbugs seem to be able to capture orcs on photo anyway...

2009-02-17 [Skydancer]: OOOh nice Orc Jitter..

2009-02-18 [Jitter]: Thank you :D

2009-07-24 [Nioniel]: *contemplates entering*

2009-08-25 [itoe]: Do it! *pokes [Nioniel]* Do it!

2009-08-25 [Nioniel]: :)
I probably will, I just need to find the time.

2009-08-28 [Nioniel]: May or may not leave this one up...hmmm...

2009-08-29 [Skydancer]: a touch of tooth would be good, orc have these fangs you see. :D lovely image though

2009-08-30 [Nioniel]: :D
I'll work on it more if I have time in the next day or two.

2009-08-31 [Nioniel]: Better now?

2009-08-31 [Falx]: Oh, wait. Can we do goblin pictures too?

2009-08-31 [Nioniel]: I would assume so, it says it at the top of this page.

2009-09-01 [Falx]: *Grins* Oh! Yay! That's very better! Many more goblins to be found 'round here than orcs. *nods sagely*

2009-09-01 [Nioniel]: Best of luck to you!

2010-01-04 [Cillamoon]: May I ask, when does this close for voting?

2010-01-04 [nehirwen]: If you click the link beneath the deadline you can read on the wiki there: Until we get more entries in the following contests, the deadlines are going to remain "not set".
So there is no deadline at this point for this session. But if you want to have a deadline, now we have 5 entries, you can discuss that with the other mods.

2010-01-04 [Cillamoon]: Gotcha, thank you Nehirwen! :)

2011-07-25 [Urmando The Elfling]: Another Orc has entered the contest, meet "Dorc the Orc"...
