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

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 **
