Spring Photo Competition

posted by steve-oh, Mar 12, 2007 3:37 PM — 39 comments

Competition time again!
Another memory card awaits you - this time the topic is Spring!

Spring is almost here. Among other things this means golf, Easter eggs, fishing, and getting back into the gym.

So let's have it -- your stock-worthy photos of Spring.

Of course, just like last time, we may increase the value / number of prizes based on the number and quality of uploads.

- Photo must be Spring related
- Photo must be a new upload, files already on SXC cannot be entered
- Must add "comp03" to keywords
- All other upload rules apply
- More submissions welcome

April 15, 2007

The winner will be selected by our jury.

Have fun!

@2 and @4

Just going to have to be extra creative, I guess. :)

So, that means everyone who doesn't leave in the Northern Hemisphere will always have to be "extra creative" when the subject/theme is Season related!!!

7. posted by steve-oh, Mar 15, 2007 3:32 AM

Ok. Live and learn. Next seasonal contest will be Southern Hemisphere oriented, so shoot accordingly. :)

one question: how many photos can we upload?


10. posted by steve-oh, Mar 16, 2007 9:46 PM

UNFAIR! where i am there's no Spring, is permanent summer. I hope next competition is Ocean photos

13. posted by TheUsher, Mar 23, 2007 9:12 PM

lol. The only thing unfair about this contest is that islatur has summer alllllll year round. It's been rainy and cold in Chicago all week.

14. posted by ZaNuDa, Mar 23, 2007 10:39 PM

Yes, unfair... Because selected deadline is too early for Russian spring... :(

15. posted by djj, Mar 26, 2007 9:41 PM

Yes this is not for us: fall is already here in Brazil!

16. posted by cmoka, Mar 26, 2007 11:16 PM

The only unfair thing here is that it has been raining for the past 5 months. Go vancouver canada :D

Conveniently, global warming has brought both scorching sun and snow to London in the last 10 days. Bring on any seasonal challenge!

18. posted by marmit, Apr 2, 2007 6:37 PM

The one advice one could give to this conflict of hemispheres is to keep your best seasonal shots (in your PCs without uploading them) to match the current theme of the SXC competition.

is this open for all countries..??

I'm very happy. Let's start have fun again:)

23. posted by LittleMan, Apr 6, 2007 5:34 PM

If i put in the keywords comp03 it doesn't show at my picture keywords even when doing a search they don't show up...

And i'm sure the're recached in the system...

What now?

I'm entering these pictures:


24. posted by LittleMan, Apr 7, 2007 7:18 PM

Jet an other day has past and still my images (with keyword comp03) don't show up when doing a search on comp03...

25. posted by Kreon, Apr 8, 2007 9:39 PM

I have entered mine a small week ago:
Thanks everyone for the kind comments they already got, much appreciated!

@24 I have more or less the same problem. The keywords don't show up on the image page itself, but I can see them in my private photo details.
Mine do actually show up however when searching 'comp03'. You could try to type in 'comp03' as your first keywords. Since SXC only accepts a certain amount of keywords, that might be the cause why it gets dropped of.

26. posted by LittleMan, Apr 9, 2007 4:33 PM


I tried putting the key word in front of the others keywords (before you posted this message) :o)

And now the do show up


27. posted by LittleMan, Apr 9, 2007 4:34 PM

Thanks anyway ;-)

28. posted by ladyaurora, Apr 9, 2007 11:31 PM

you said "have fun"!

If this really is a competition then I should not get this remark on my uploaded photo:

this does not look like competition to me. :(

29. posted by robgr85, Apr 10, 2007 2:41 AM

upload no more than 5. Thanks!

a lot of people uploaded much more than 5...

30. posted by xvost, Apr 11, 2007 1:41 PM

yep, nice idea

31. posted by NatsPhotos, Apr 13, 2007 9:40 PM

Everyone has some great photos entered.
Yay, I finally uploaded one!
I had trouble, tried a couple of times on this photo, but @#$%* dial-up connection.
I've tried to another photo about 3 times already, but then after about 30 minuttes, It tells me I have to log on again. Argh....excuse me for venting.
I'll try to upload a couple of more photos for this competition, but by the time I do successfully, the competition might be over.

When will results be posted and how many places are you giving? You should give like 20 or top three and like 10 honorable mentions since there are so many.

33. posted by steve-oh, Apr 16, 2007 5:11 PM

The results will most likely be announced this week -- in time for the newsletter.

Will also announce the next contest.


34. posted by juliaf, Apr 30, 2007 7:20 PM

So did the results get announced? I can't seem to find them.

35. posted by iikozen, May 3, 2007 2:12 AM

Kreon was the Winner!!!

36. posted by bosela, May 3, 2007 12:43 PM

Is this the anouncement? Or is there a more extensive contest summary somewhere else?

Which picture? I found at least 3 submissions by Kreron.

Were there any other finalists?

Are there any comments from the jury members discussing the relative attributes of finalists; particularly the winner?

37. posted by Zargo, May 3, 2007 6:08 PM

bosela, here's the blog about it

I'm just a bit disappointed that it wasn't announced in the front page.
I would have wanted it presented the way bosela wrote with a bit in-depth information.

Anyway, just my thoughts.
