Photoalbum Competition

Next competition in the same style: Neighbourhood Photo Album Contest

There has been a voting in <poll:11056>. That voting has been seen as "not fair" by the evil dictators Hedda and Lilo, who, in their goal for total world domination, have decided on these winners:

First place Kaleigh's photos

A wonderful collection of photos of both nature and friends and a very well done job to make the page not just a page, but a part of Elfpack.

Second place: What I learned at Ren Faire

Evil comments and nerdy people!

Third place: Mariah's Digital Photography

A nice collection of nature photos and a dog.

Congratulations to the winners! 3-1 donor-privs have been given to them.

These nice and pretty good albums didn't make it to the (semi-)final:
Criminal Evidence - Good, but too small
a lack of colour photography - Too few comments, but very artistic
outsane - vampirefreak-ads are not exactly what I want as a winner... One nice dog-photo though!
Battlefield's nature walk - Nice, but entered too late.

This is a competition for you that has a good set of photos. The photos may be fun, artistic, technical, interesting or just goofy. They all compete against each other, but don't expect that only "Elfpackish" entries to win! Everything (Hm... I will remove too bad stuff at my will. /[Hedda]) except racist propaganda, horrible images or porn is allowed.

§1 The photos should be uploaded to Elfpack in the following way:
1) Go to your house.
2) Press "Upload a folder of images".
3) Select a name for the wiki-page and then you upload a ZIP-file (See How to create a zip-file) with 10 to 20 images.
4) Write a lot of comments on the photos. It can be explanation about how you arranged the light and how you manage to get the entire flower sharp or and explanation that it's John who is puking on his keyboard because you gave him an ugly link.
5) Submit the page and then write the link to the wiki-page under Your submissions below.

§2 It has to be your photos!

§3 You may let others help you with adding photos or comments, but the ones helping you are just helping you. This isn't a team-competition, but you're free to give them credits of course.

§4 Deadline is on the 31st of July.

§5 Ask questions by doing a comment to this wiki-page. The competition boss for this competition is [Hedda].

§6 The prize will be donor-priviledges (see <URL:donate.html>) and maybe something extra.

Please don't re-use old wiki-pages and photos you have on Elfpack. This isn't a rule, but new photos are prefered!

2006-08-05 [Hedda]: That is: I didn't let you come to the final. No need to remove the link though.

2006-08-05 [Big Brother]: i don't care, i'm already a donator ^_^ i was just bored.

2006-08-06 [forbidden]: I wish voting wasnt seceret.

2006-08-06 [FireGypsy]: XD

2006-08-06 [undergroundangel]: lol....I knew I forgot 2 take that tag off that last pic

2006-08-06 [and i was a kaleidoscope]: well at the urging of the comments made at the top of the page i added some captions to the photos i submitted.
also, i went on a little adventure the other day and i got some good photos out of it, but i'm not sure i'm allowed any more... can anyone elaborate? its only like.... 3 photos that i want to use

2006-08-06 [Hedda]: [and i was a kaleidoscope]: You just didn't make it to the final because the other pages were more and better. I'm sure you'll do better next time ;)

I'll put the Mainstuff voting up now.

2006-08-19 [DARSH]: YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY i didnt winnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn * bouncecs around *

2006-08-19 [Hedda]: [DARSH]: You're already a winner in other ways ;)

2006-08-19 [DARSH]: hahhaa thanks mannn
but hay u chek out that pic in gee submision
I HOPE its not gona be REJECTED :P heheheh

2006-08-19 [Hedda]: Of course you'll be rejected...

2006-08-20 [FireGypsy]: This is unfair! I was told I was disqualified because I have won previous contests. When [Hedda] could have stopped me from entering in the first place. Or he could even have added me to the "not so good" list when he was narrowing down the entries. I feel that I have been cheated and he had no reason to disqualify me. If anything, he should have allowed me to win, and told me I could not enter any more. But even that, that is unfair. If I am winning, its for a good reason! You cant make a cutoff of the amount of contests someone is allowed to be winning in!

2006-08-20 [Mare Pacificum]: I am wondering what the point was of the poll..I don't care who won, but it seems a little cruel to let someone think that they are winning, and then disqualify them after the poll is over. Evil, evil Hedda and Lilo...

2006-08-20 [FireGypsy]: yeah... evil...

2006-08-20 [Whim]: Actually, you can make a cutoff of the amount of contests someone wins, however, I'm sure it would have been very nice to have been informed of such a rule prior to entering the contest.

The thing about contests like this that would seemingly require a certain amount of actual talent is that the "winners" haven't actually beaten everyone because someone with more talent may have been beaten on a technicality.

Either way, it's just a silly little Elfpack contest and as fair or unfair as it may be, you should be more proud of the fact that you put together a decent effort. Winning on Elfpack is like finding a quarter on the sidewalk--sure, it's nice, but I have a $20 bill in my wallet.

2006-08-20 [Hedda]: [FireGypsy] wasn't disqualified because she had won previous competitions - that was just a misunderstanding.

The poll was a advisory poll and I overruled it. It's as simple as that. I wanted good examples of photo-albums and that was a good example, but the winners were better.

If you don't like it, create your own competitions! Elfpack is willing to help you.

2006-08-20 [Mare Pacificum]: Oh, an advisory poll. Ok :) I guess since you were the "poll master" of sorts, you got to pick, eh? Good luck to her in the future :)

2006-08-20 [FireGypsy]: ...he told me it was because I had won other contests... anywho.. Ive been thinking about making some unofficial contests..who knows, maybe they would be good enough to become official?

2006-08-21 [kittykittykitty]: You can speak to any of the EP Contest Crew for help with that if you need it :)

2006-08-21 [Hedda]: Regardless if they are "official" or not, we can surely boost them with stuff on the Mainstuff.

That goes for every contest maker ;)

2006-08-21 [FireGypsy]: Im just trying to think up ome good ones. I was thinking of making an "all things small" contest, where people take pictures of miniaturized things they see, and the best ones win. Or something like "capture the word" where I put up a word every month, and people take pictures of things they see with the word on it, and the funniest one wins and such ^-^
