Global-Photos Contest LIGHTs * CLOSED

Journal Entry: Fri Nov 7, 2014, 3:58 PM
My Gallery

:groups: :iconglobal-photos: :groups:




All participants are voting to find our winners and they'll be revealed on the 20th January.
Stay tuned.





:wave: Hello to all members of Global-Photos


I thought it would be fun to have a contest. I really like contests! :D
Even if you don't win, it's nice to participate - you can show your work to others!

So, what is my idea for this contest?
To run a contest in 2 categories, Photography and Photomanipulation, with the theme "LIGHTs".

What do I want to see?
Anything related to light: it can be a candle, a fireplace, a rainbow, a strange glow, sun rays, xmas lights, dim light or bright light (but, please photographers, don't photograph the sun!: you'll ruin your camera, your eyes and ours!).

Some examples of beautiful lights:


Photography


Light by 1maliniak1 Last seconds of light by Invi-Light Light by Bufflyslayer
Last Light Best Light? by Capturing-the-Light
 If There Is A Light by WishmasterAlchemist Light Up My Life by closer-to-heaven
Be Light by solefield Light by michael746
Autumn light by WiciaQ  of Light by zemotion




Photomanipulation


Yellow Light by AprilLight Into the light by 38DDmisswhiplash
Dawn of Light by emilieleger Light in Her Rose Garden by AprilLight
light by BaxiaArt Into The Light by Velaija
Light the Way by Emerald-Depths
And Then There Was Light by emilieleger Sweet Light by ForestGirl



Only members can participate, so if you aren't a member just join us.
Take in consideration that this is a contest - to be fair, YOU and only you (who are participating) have to vote! Not in a poll, but in a private voting and if you don't vote, you won't be eligible to win!

The Contest folders will be open on the 15th November and you will have the opportunity to submit 2 (new) works to each folder.

Prizes?
On my behalf, I'm going to give a 150 :points: to the winner and 100 :points: to the 2nd place on each category. 
If we have more than 25 participations on photography and more than 15 on photomanipulation I'll add 100 points to each prize. 
Also, anyone wanting to give some prizes please comment below. 

Donations are also very welcome here :iconatlasmyworld:

I added your icon on each contest folder the moment you gave the donation.

I'm sorry if I didn't thank you formaly (even you wrote you didn't need the thank you or mention :hmm: ) but as it is written on this blog "all donors will be featured at the end of the contest", I have made no other promises.

Anyway, thank you :)
