<img6*6:> Nationalities Photography Contest <img6*6:>

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:

1st place: [Jitter] - Greece
2nd place: [spincrus] - Turkey
3rd place: [Hedda] - Sweden

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 **

2006-06-16 [Charybdis]: I'm glad it's gotten you thinking *^^* Part of it is supposed to make you find something about your country that you might not have thought of before, or not properly appreciated ^^

2006-06-16 [Atayemi]: Yeah, I thought that too. It's a great idea! ;) Why not put it on MS? :P

2006-06-16 [Charybdis]: I will, once we have one or two example entries from squee and I. We're running it, so we can't enter, but we can still take pictures and point to them as samples :P

2006-06-16 [sequeena_rae]: Yesh yesh yesh *photo photo photo*

2006-06-16 [Atayemi]: XD hehe

2006-06-27 [spincrus]: I put it on watch. I'll be gone on Thursday so won't contribute for a week or so, I hope the deadline isn't too soon.

2006-06-27 [sequeena_rae]: I don't believe it will be, so don't worry :P

2006-06-27 [Charybdis]: No, don't worry. I'm going on vacation myself until the first or second week of July, so I'll still be here but only enough to maintain things. It will still be open when you return :)

2006-06-28 [Fizban]: Hey can I take a picture of a fat guy eating a BigMac standing next to an overly large truck or hummer!! I think that would be perfect to capture america...
