This post marks the launch of the Digital Lightroom Photo Competition. This is a WordPress photography competition by photographers for photographers. There are many great WordPress photography blogs out there and many very talented photographers. The purpose of this competition is to celebrate this.
We have two great prizes on offer from those awfully nice people over at Topaz Labs. The winner of this first competition will receive a key to download and license Topaz Black and White Effects. The runner up will receive a key to download and license Topaz Adjust. You can see for yourself what fabulous prizes and what a great addition to your processing tool bag these prizes would be by following the links.
The entries to this competition will be judged by a panel of experienced photographers who will choose a shortlist of five photographs. This shortlist will go to a WordPress community vote using Poll Daddy.
The theme of this first competition is Spring.
All entries should be received by Friday, 8th March. The shortlisted photographs will then be posted here, on this blog, for the voting to take place. The winner will be announced by the 31st March when we will hopefully launch the second competition.
We’ll be posting a collection of entries as they come in so be sure to add The Digital Lightroom to the list of blogs that you follow.
The email address for submissions is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please add Photo Submission to the subject field.
Your photos should measure no more than a height or width of 950 px and should not have a resolution greater than 300 px. Please see the rules page for more details.
Below are some images taken by the judges. These images are not necessarily representative of the theme, but hopefully you’ll enjoy them and perhaps they’ll inspire you to get out there and take a competition winning photo..
