Thanx T,
the reason i asked it, its because i just uploaded this pict:

It has around 1750 downloads in just
3 days.

Zela (i believe a admin) already ansered
the question and said YES

I think it was a fair enough question - SXC is called the leading site of free stock photos, but do accept vector illustrations too

So I wanna ask too, if we are allowed to enter vector illustrations, or other kinds of graphics?

Can it be a vector illustration??

I think that ought to create two categories: photos and vectors. It is not fair both compete in the same category. My suggestion for vectors is that the file is available in vector, not only in image (as in

I'll give it a shot.

Good luck 4 all

Vectors are really getting popular on the site, so if there are enough vector entries we might introduce a prize! :)

If you made something nice, either photo or graphics, don't hesitate and upload it. There's nothing to lose!

i hope there's a seperate section for vectors. right now only jpegs are allowed on the site. but the expert version has vectors. why so ? there might be few amongst us here who'd like to upload vector illustration too. possibly with some extra effort from the admins (who might already be overworked) ... we could really afford to have vector illustrations in addition to the great collection of images on SXC... thank you!

i only have a Kodak ES C763, which is not (so) good for taking pro shots (planning to buy a dslr anytime soon). poor me!hehehe! nevertheless, have to give it a try. good luck everyone & merry christmas! RONALD, Philippines

I think its not difficult to work out a nice composition and its also not difficult to take pictures of this composition and edit the pictures! i think the most difficult thing is to get it uploaded on sxc^^
anyway my xmas pics are still pending i'll join the competition soon :)
I wish good luck & merry xmas to everyone too!

Is 15 November the earliest date for photos? I Decided to get in early for Christmas, and uploaded a heap of Christmas images earlier in November, which I wouldn't mind entering.

Yes, I know the competition was announced a bit late and there were some Xmas pics on the site already.

I think it would be unfair to exclude anybody who uploaded images a bit earlier, so let's say images from November can be entered!

23. posted by robgr85, Dec 8, 2007 7:10 PM

lol... just stumbled upon competition uploads and there is a lot of christmas unrelated photos :P

It would be nice to know if there will be two categories - vectors & photos.

Well the deadline has passed., let the nailbiting commence! The field is impressive - so many excellent graphics and photos. This has to be the most successful competition (entrywise) so far.

I don't expect to win but I've had a LOT of fun producing stuff. My preliminary dabble at producing vectors has produced a learning curve I just gotta investigate. Took me long enough to discover that PS is more than just an impressive photo editor. Laffing.

Good luck everyone!

Yes, nailbiting indeed. One of my images #918243 has been used for an LG Indonesia advert and it looks very impressive. When do they do the draw? Does anyone know?
