Presented by [Charybdis] and [sequeena_rae]


This contest is closed!

Congratulations, [Ocean Soul]! Your entry, representing Germany, has been chosen Judges' Favourite! Well done :)

Here are the results of the public poll:

Well done, all of you!
And of course a big thank you to everyone who entered :)
You may now have this badge:



Welcome to the Nationalities Photography Contest! As we all know, Elftown is a worldwide community, with people of every imaginable country and culture represented somehow. This contest aims to celebrate that by giving people a chance to highlight aspects of the nationality they associate themselves with. Think of it as an opportunity to show your pride! ;)

<img6*6:> Theme: <img6*6:>

Submit pictures that you feel really capture a unique aspect of your country or culture.

What we want: It doesn't just have to be a national symbol, although that's certainly an option... Something illustrating heritage, an odd quirk particular to where you live; be imaginative!
What we don't want: Pictures of subjects that have little or nothing to do with your nationality. This one is a no-brainer :P

<img6*6:> Rules: <img6*6:>

1. Be sure your entries follow the Uploading Art Rules! Your own work only, or face the consequences. Which will not be pleasant. We shouldn't have to say this; you ought to know it by now.
2. Each member may submit up to two entries.
3. No photomanipulations this time. :)
4. Follow the theme, for goodness' sake. No random prettiness, not without reasons! If your entry has some symbolic value and the theme is not immediately obvious, a short explanation of why it fits wouldn't hurt.
5. Nothing violent or pornographic, please, although we'd be worried if you thought that was a good way to represent your country or culture to the world.
6. Have fun! :D

<img6*6:> Judging: <img6*6:>

One entry will be selected as Judges' Favourite. A poll will then be set up to determine three other winners (the same entry cannot win more than once.) Four unique badges will be awarded for these, and a general participant's badge will also be made available once the poll is closed.

** Deadline: Ten entries **

2006-06-30 [Paz]: We're too... plain O_o

2006-06-30 [sequeena_rae]: Aww :( XD No, I'm sure there's something that sets you apart from everyone else :P

2006-06-30 [Fizban]: ...ummmm...Nuclear bombs represent us pretty well?? OOOH i HAVE A GOOD IDEA!!!!!*wont mention it cause it could be achieved*----but no, we are best represented as controlling, manipulative, killers ^_^

2006-06-30 [sequeena_rae]: o.O Fair enough.

2006-06-30 [Atayemi]: O__o

2006-06-30 [Fizban]: Sooo...I just gotta get me one a them!

2006-06-30 [sequeena_rae]: Don't you have pride in your country? For anything at all? "This contest aims to celebrate that by giving people a chance to highlight aspects of the nationality they associate themselves with. Think of it as an opportunity to show your pride! ;)"

2006-06-30 [Atayemi]: Exactly! O____o

2006-06-30 [Fizban]: Pride...what,...what is this foreign word? How strange...well, we have a shitty president, we make shitty foreign and domestic affairs...we are more concerned with the number of bombs we can over stock then the number of hospitals we have vs the number of sick people. Our Medical practices pray off the rich, and unless your lucky, deny the poor. I can't think of a single good politician since Rudy Giuliani that was any good or seemed to be any intelligent. Ummm...we have nice tourist sites :3...ummm...we as a culture are becoming more liberal...but I wouldnt really put that down on the list. Um...our culture is a mindless grouping of all others, a contortion of the once rich cultures we

2006-06-30 [Fizban]: used to they are all a gray mass of indistinguishable shit...A Mcdonalized culture, for a Mcdonaldized country. So sorry...unless you count like,...maybe the cool little stuff we have within...I really don't see this country as great. Its got amazing achievements...but only by being evil.

2006-06-30 [sequeena_rae]: But the whole point of this contest is to show your pride for your country. Not slag it off.

2006-06-30 [Fizban]: :(...then...then...darn. I had this whole, idea where I was going to have my brother hold a big stick and look like he was quietly walking, with like his finger to his mouth to make a shushing sign. Thats not derogatory really...

2006-06-30 [sequeena_rae]: Well I don't know, it would be funny to see, I'll have to run it through with [Charybdis], don't discard the idea though :P

2006-06-30 [iippo]: You don't even have to be patriotic to enter, as long as you can see the image that defines your country. Good definitions are completely free of emotion.

2006-06-30 [Fizban]: Yay!!

2006-06-30 [sequeena_rae]: And again, that's true xD

2006-06-30 [shotokan_gal]: Oooh I want to enter this, if it stays open long enough for me to take some pics and develop them anyway ^^ . Although there may be something appropriate on the film I just finished, although it hasn't been developed yet. *hmms to self*

2006-06-30 [sequeena_rae]: It'll be open for a while, so don't worry :P

2006-06-30 [shotokan_gal]: That's good :) . Though it's only your own country, which makes sense, went to Edinburgh recently and have some stuff which would definitely be quite patriotic for the Scots!

2006-06-30 [sequeena_rae]: I bet they envy you right now XP

2006-06-30 [shotokan_gal]: If there's any here?
