The Rules


1. THE PHOTOS MUST BE UPLOADED TO ELFPACK IN THE FOLLOWING WAY:
a) Go to your house.
b) Press "Upload a folder of images".
c) Select a unique describing name for the wiki-page (Like for example "Ryd in Linköping, Sweden" or "55th street on Manhattan") and then you upload a ZIP-file (See How to create a zip-file with about 10 to 20 images (The limit is just a suggestion).
d) Make sure the page is exported.
e) Write fun or interesting comments on the photos. It can be explanation about how you arranged the light and how you manage to get the entire flower sharp or and explanation that it's John who is puking on his keyboard because you gave him an ugly link.
f) Submit the page and then write the link to the wiki-page under Your submissions below.

2. ALL SUBMITTED PHOTOS MUST BE MADE BY THE SUBMITTER. This means no reproductions, repostings, copied works, works randomly found on the net, submissions of another Elfpack member’s work, or heaven knows anything else we might have missed. Using another photographer’s photographs without their express, written permission is stealing, and will NOT be tolerated. If a person is found to have submitted stolen work, that person will be permanently banned from submitting any more works, and will be reported to the guards.

3. PEOPLE ARE ALLOWED TO HELP YOU WRITE COMMENTS AND ADDING PHOTOS. You may let others help you with adding photos or comments, but the ones helping you are just helping you. This isn't a team-competition, but you're free to give them credits of course.

4. ALL MEMBERS PARTICIPATING IN THIS WIKI, ENTRANTS OR NOT, MUST BE RESPECTFUL OF EVERYONE ELSE AND THEIR WORK. Be nice, damn it.

5. ALL ENTRIES MUST BE ON THE 'MY NEIGHBOURHOOD' THEME. No random images, no matter how cool they might look, will be allowed to participate. If an image’s or an entire submission's theme does not seem to fit, the artist will be contacted via comments on the wiki-page and given a chance to explain how their work fits the theme. [Firenze] and the Elfpack crew have the last call on what does or does not fit the theme.

6. ALL SUBMISSIONS MUST BE SUBMITTED HERE BEFORE THE 3RD OF FEBRUARY 2007

7. [Firenze] IS THE BOSS OF THIS CONTEST SO HAVE FUN!! (Or we will send a bunch of caffeine deprived photographers after you!! o_O;;)

Some Hints:

-Submitting more then 1 photoalbum is not allowed, please decide which one is best, or ask the staff which one you should enter the contest with.

-Having a lot of friends vote for you does not mean you will win. (So don't try to mail all your friends, it's even forbidden!

-Entries will be judged as fairly as possible, with the poll as a guide. Judges ultimately will make the final decision.

2007-02-07 [beautiful _ darkness]: wow I thought atleast one person would vote for mine but thats ok I like my photos and if other people dont thats ok too

2007-02-07 [Hedda]: [beautiful _ darkness]: I think a few of the images are a little too shaky, but the biggest problem is that there are no comments and that the images aren't arranged. You can for example write "<img500:" instead of "<img:" and you'll get a better format on the page.

2007-02-15 [beautiful _ darkness]: thank you Hedda... the only reason they are shaky is cause I have a constant shake that sometimes is worse then other times

2007-02-16 [Hedda]: Put the camera down on something?

2007-02-16 [Firenze]: Or use a tripod if you have one?

2007-02-16 [Polar ♥]: Yeah, tripods are the best inventions ever for shaky people. I have one that folds up. Its about a foot long, but extends to almost 4 and a half feet. Really nice. I'd look into that if you're really interested in photography. 

2007-02-20 [beautiful _ darkness]: yea I could look into one

2007-02-20 [FireGypsy]: Heh, apparently nobody likes my rooftop point of view XD

2007-02-20 [Hedda]: Of course we did, but the desert was cooler <img:dand-gif.gif>

2007-02-20 [FireGypsy]: Florida is a desert XD

2007-02-20 [Hedda]: Öh... No <img:dand-gif.gif>

2007-02-20 [Amaranthine]: Florida is more tropical. Not a lot of cactus and sand like here...

2007-02-20 [FireGypsy]: *shrugs* still, I figured I wouldn't be in second to LAST place, seeing as I had a completely different perspective for my pictures other than just taking a picture of my neighbors' houses and a few plants. I took a picture of them from the SKY! People have no taste for artistic ideas I guess...

2007-02-20 [Polar ♥]: C'mon.  You can't win EVERY contest. :D I've seen enough of your smiling face on the front page! (Ok, no I haven't, but...) :D

2007-02-20 [FireGypsy]: Well I just thought that my artistic view would get a more than a few fans that's all. I don't care if I win or not, but being second to last though I have an artistic view of my neighborhood kinda upsets me. Maybe I should just stay lame and not put the extra effort to climb on my roof next time...

2007-02-20 [Polar ♥]: Awww...but then I wouldn't have gotten to see it! Plus, being on rooves is fun anyway.

2007-02-21 [RainCloud]: Keep in mind that we could only vote for one. You woulda been my second. If I had thought more and considered the artistic value, perhaps even first but definately second.

2007-02-21 [Hedda]: Yepp, now we're down to statistics again. If everyone thinks you're the second best, you'll end up last. That's why these votings get interesting: It's never the "best" one that win or come at a good place. It's the submission that most people like. Which pretty often is something many people hate, or think is pretty far out (in a good or bad way).

2007-02-24 [Hedda]: [Firenze], do you want to badge people?

The poll is taken just away from Mainstuff so it's time to finish this. <img:dand-gif.gif>

2007-02-25 [Polar ♥]: Thanks folks, this was fun!

2007-02-25 [La Fleur de La Croix]: Congrats! ^-^
