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.

2006-12-10 [Hedda]: Remember to use "Edmond" and "Oklahoma" in the wiki-page name! <img:drunk.gif> If that's where you're making the photos...

2006-12-10 [La Fleur de La Croix]: I shall. ^-^

2006-12-10 [HOOKERin]: but there isnt anything interesting in a neighbourhood in a city, heres a house and another house and a pub and a road and scatty pavement, and it is all dirty...well now i live in the city centre :P you cant prove that i dont

2006-12-10 [La Fleur de La Croix]: Yeah, neighborhoods are hard, since all the houses look the same, as do the plants, typically. (Here in Oklahoma anyway...)

2006-12-10 [Firenze]: So I live on a council estate and there is nothing special about where I live, all there is on my road is houses and a few good views like <URL:http://ic3.deviantart.com/fs12/f/2006/330/8/7/Storm_a_brewin___by_kellywinsor.jpg>

So I really do not know why you are complaining.

2006-12-10 [La Fleur de La Croix]: Because all there is in a neighborhood here in America are houses. Brick houses. No life. No difference except different shades of brown on the front doors. All the bushes are square, all the flowers are pink. I have pictures of all those already. All I'm saying is: it is a difficult thing to do an album contest on.

2006-12-10 [Firenze]: Well that is pretty much what it is like here where I live, it all depends on where you live, I think depending on the weather tomorrow I could have 20+ photos of the neighbourhood that I live in. There is variety on each different road people live on, all neighbourhoods are different.

I personally think this is an easy topic to do an album contest on.

2006-12-10 [Mental Terrorist]: how great of an idea...putting pictures or where you live on the internet....i know elfpack is pretty safe...but not one i would participate in....

2006-12-10 [FireGypsy]: Now should we walk around and take pictures of the actual neighborhood, like houses, or can we take pictures of the neat plants or landscapes in the neighborhood?

2006-12-10 [Firenze]: Has to be located in your neighbourhood, so roads, houses, trees planted beside the pavement etc.

2006-12-10 [FireGypsy]: Oh ^_^ Neat-O!

2006-12-10 [Firenze]: Yeah it is rather simple ^_^

2006-12-10 [Monster Master]: You're lying! :O

Just kidding. ^_^

2006-12-10 [Enneigard Rebirth]: hmmmmmm.....i take lots of photos of my neighbor hood....

2006-12-10 [Avrora_Black]: Wow! I'm definately going to try to enter here! I have so many beautiful photos of my neighbourhood...It's quite a bit big though, which is good because I'll have more to talk about and photograph;)

2006-12-10 [Hedda]: Feature-news: Now you don't have to upload a ZIP-file on that upload-page. If you have javascript enabled (which you probably have) you can select the single photo-files one by one.

I personally still think it's easier to create and upload a ZIP-file, but it might not be for everyone.

2006-12-11 [La Fleur de La Croix]: Thank you very much, [Hedda]!!! ^-^

2006-12-11 [Shadowsoul]: thank you [Hedda]!
i agree with you

2006-12-11 [stephy.h]: This contest sounds like fun...It's camera time :)

2006-12-12 [Wendy]: What a great competition for stalkers to know where we live! I'll pass...

2006-12-12 [Hedda]: No [Wendy]-stalking! <img:mood21-gif.gif> That sucks! <img:mood19-gif.gif>
