Discussion in 'Challenge and Contests Forum' started by Boobie Joe, Jan 27, 2005.

  1. Hi everybody and welcome to the Nikon Cafe Challenge #1

    I will be your host for this event and I hope for a srtong participation from actual and new members of this new exciting site/discussion forum.


    The goal of the Challenges will be to encourrage photographers of this site to engage into a photographic discipline with a given subject and given rules, sometimes out of your usual comfort zone. This is usually a good way of learning and getting better, kind of an assignment for a job.

    The rules will be separated in two sections, the posting/participation rules and the voting rules.

    In both cases they will need to be followed in order to not be disqualified from ther challenge



    SUBJECT: SOMETHING MOVING
    Please, try to be imaginative

    IT COULD BE ANYTHING AS LONG AS IT IS IN PERCEPTIBLE MOVEMENT, ANYTHING GOES.

    Duration of posting for the Challenge: from 0:01h EST on 29th of Jan 2005 until 23:59h EST 04 of feb 2005

    Voting period will be from: 0:01h EST 05 of Feb to 23:59h EST 08 of feb 2005




    Posting Rules:

    1- The pictures submitted will have to be taken with a NIKON DSLR, (please, if you shoot a Canon DSLR, get the hell out of here) :twisted:
    2- The pictures submitted will have to be taken during the period of the Challenge
    3- The submitted pictures must be at a maximum of 800 pixels wide or High
    4- A participant may submit a maximum of 3 pictures for the Challenge

    9- Photoshop work will be allowed on the pictures with the exception of motion bluring and fake blur
    10- A participant can replace a picture up until the last day of the Challenge duration



    Voting Rules:

    Voting period will be from: 0:01h EST 05 of Feb to 23:59h 08 of feb 2005

    1- Each participant to this Challenge must vote to have her/his submission validated
    2- People who did not participate by posting images can also vote as long as she/he is a member on nikoncafe.com
    3- Every voters will have a total of 11 points usable for artistic value (always subjective) and will attribute the voting points to her/his favorite image.
    4- Every voters will have a total of 11 points usable for Technical aspect (always subjective) and will attribute the voting points to her/his favorite image.
    5- A voter cannot give more than 4 points for artistic value to a given image. 4 points is the max allowed to an image for artistic value
    6- A voter cannot give more than 4 points for technical aspect to a given image. 4 points is the max allowed to an image for technical aspect


    Example: I can give 3 pts for artistic and 2 points for tech asp for a total of 5 points. The max an image can reach is 8 pts per voters (4 + 4). If I give 4 pts for artistic and 4 points for tech asp, I still have 7 points usable for artistic and 7 points usable for tech asp ...

    7- All voters will need to use all of their 11 points for Artistic Value and 11 points for Technical Aspect before the end of the voting period.
    8- A voter can vote for 22 images and give 1 point only for artistic value and technical aspect. As long as she/he doesn't go over 11 points in each category.
    9- After expiration of the voting period, the Host of the Challenge will cumulate the points for the pictures. The picture that receives the highest score (Artistic Value + Technical Aspects added together) will win the challenge and will be the host of the next Challenge. In case of a tie even between two or more pictures, the picture that will receive the most points for Artistic Value will win (among the tied pictures), if there is still a tie, the picture having received the most votes will win. If there is still a freken tie, we are FUCKED .... :lol:
    10- Honnorable mention will be given to the picture with the highest score for Artistic Value and the same for Technical Aspect.
    11- A VOTER CANNOT VOTE FOR IT'S OWN IMAGE PLEASE ... :lol: DON'T LAUGH, I HAVE SEEN THAT BEFORE.


    Hope this is FUN and CLEAR for everyone

    I will invite you to adress any question regarding the challenge ASAP so I can clarify and edit the rules before the Challenge Starts
