posted by admin, Aug 3, 2006 9:47 PM — 27 comments

Win a 2GB memory card of your choice by entering our new photo competition!

As you all know, business related images are always the most popular on any stock site. So why not give our users what they need?

Our first official photo competition is about neckties, and not surprisingly we are looking for photos featuring neckties in all kinds of situations!

Use your imagination and creativity to take the best business shot ever uploaded to the site and win a 2GB memory card of your choice!

- Photo must contain at least one necktie
- Photo must be a new upload, files already on SXC cannot be entered
- Must add "comp01" to keywords
- All other upload rules apply
- More submissions welcome

September 1, 2006

The winner will be selected by a jury featuring well known SXC users.

Have fun!
