Official Photography Contest

Postby Myles » Fri Jul 23, 2010 4:35 am

This game we will be having a new award for "Best HvZ Photo". This prize will be awarded to the player who takes a photo the mods decide to be the best. A good photo needs to be one which captures some element of the game and isn't blurry or otherwise hard to see. To compete in this contest what you need to do is take lots of photos during HvZ (and make sure to get them all to Myles for documentation!). For starters you should post photos in your own topic in this forum - helping to contribute toward the bard award.

Then to enter the contest you just need to put a single post in this topic which includes what you think is your best picture so far. You can always edit your post to a newer/better photo and the topic will only close on Sunday after the game.

Have fun and take lots of photos!

My chances of getting a good shot are minimal compared with the equipment being carried around... but I'll try.

The judging will be more on essence and good timing than on simply quality alone. Sure, having a good camera as opposed to say a camera phone will give you an edge - but we won't be discriminating on camera quality.

Your chances of getting a good shot are more closely related to the effort you put into getting it. More than likely I'll be too busy and forget to spend a bunch of time trying to set up a shot.

It also can't hurt to take tons of pictures (this is also ideal for the club and might give you a shot at bard award too ;) )
