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

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 witches. We will pick one witch-photo or more as winners.

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

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

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

Brief description:
Appearance: Most commonly known as of or thought to be of the female gender, but not exclusively. Most widely known to be practitioners of wirchcraft, the casting of spells, the raising of the dead, and so forth.

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.

2007-11-22 [Artemis Management]: *smiles* I took one of another cousin that won first place in a state contest. And, the one I submitted for the dwarf contest, I took at the Texas Renfest.

2007-12-14 [Easterling]: Both these two artworks are brilliant... :D Good work [Skydancer] and [Jitter].!! I can't decide which one I like the best, they're both great in their own kind of way...

2007-12-15 [Jitter]: Thank you :)

2007-12-16 [Skydancer]: Appreciation :)

2008-03-03 [Nocternity S.]: hmmm... interesting....

2008-11-12 [Alexi Ice]: Quick question, I read the rules but if we have a witchy photo that involves a witch, which is in fact not human but a doll...can we submit that? (Does that even make sence?)

2008-11-12 [Jitter]: Hm it does. And now that you mention it I do have a couple of doll witches that would qualify better than my manip :P

2008-11-12 [Alexi Ice]: Alright I will get an example picture of her and see what the council thinks about it...then I will take an official picture! ^^

2008-11-13 [Alexi Ice]: <img:>

This is a closeup I have of her.

2008-11-13 [Alexi Ice]: Naturally ^^ I just took it off my myspace for quick usage. Lol. Downloading is such a drag. Anyhow I am also interested in the opinions of the other council members, because it is a good question ^^

2008-11-13 [Alexi Ice]: I am begining to wonder the legitimacy of my question though...I know that back tracking on my ideas is stupid but...considering that I did not make the doll, rather bought it off a pagan fansite does that give me a right to post a picture up of her in the first place? Though I did rightfully pay a good sum of money to own her...which may give me more rights to her then I thought...LOL. I am confusing myself, I think...

2008-11-13 [Skydancer]: grins, well, one thing I would comment on, having nothing to do with the ownership or rights, is... that it looks a lot more like a fairy than witch in my opinion. Nice doll though. :)

2008-11-13 [Alexi Ice]: I thought that too, actually...LOL ^^ IT is called Pagan Barbie though, so I suppose it is supposed to be a witch. What do you think about the ownership rights though, since it was your argument that made me question it ^^

And thank you ^^ Whether she be witch or fariey, she is certinally one of my favorite material items.

2008-11-13 [Skydancer]: Considering the type of venue the image would be in, as long as you attribute the maker, I don't see any issues of copyright being a problem. Its your doll, and if you want to take photos of it, thats your business. Your not claiming its yours, just that its an example of a witch.

2008-11-13 [Skydancer]: Having said that I think I might consider setting her up as a still life for the competition, maybe some candles, a bit of low light, some burning incense?

2008-11-13 [Alexi Ice]: Good point. Now if only I could get some more opinions as to whether she is allowed in the competition at all...^^

2008-11-13 [Skydancer]: :) that I cannot help with. :D

2008-11-13 [Alexi Ice]: Lol, That's alright. I will see what the other council members think.

2008-11-17 [Alexi Ice]: I don't think they do...LOL ^^ Maybe she is better for an Atypical witch Oh and yes, the picture I was going to take of her was going to be on my alter, when I was givin an OK. I shall go moniter the forum then, thank you.

2008-11-17 [Skydancer]: hmmm well if you have an altar and are a practicing witch, then why not a photo of yourself at your altar? Thats a photo of a real witch. :)

2008-11-17 [Alexi Ice]: Of course, but I wanted it to be a more fariy tale like. I am nothing special...
