QL National Day Photo Competition
Yay! At last a simple photo competition for all you snap happy QL people.
What is the subject: National Day
Your image needs to capture the essence of Qatar National Day, and MUST be taken in and around this years celebration events. So no cheating and submitting images you took in previous years because you will be found out and publicly flogged as punishment.
What Media: Flickr
You must be a member of the COMPLETELY FREE OF CHARGE QL Photo Group on Flickr.
If you are not already a member, then simply follow the above link and request membership (which is free). Then you will submit your beautiful potential prize winning image on there for all group members to view and offer their critique (or bash the living daylights out of your work in some cases so don't enter if you are of a sensitive nature).
When is the closing date for submissions: Midnight on Thursday 20th December 2012. Anyone submitting an image now is obviously cheating as the celebrations haven't even started yet, so you will be taken out and publicly flogged. Or in fact shot if you are that stupid!
Who are the judges: Me and me only!
Who can enter: Anyone (except me)
What are the prizes: There is only one, because I can only find one sponsor. If anyone wants to help with sponsorship and give me more prizes then there will be more than one prize to give away. But for the moment those awfully nice people from Barzan Digital have given me one pair of their Custom Fit (molded to your inner ears only so no one else can use them) earphones worth a massive QR 1,200. They make those pathetic Monster Beats gimmicky headphone thingies sound pants, and unlike other brands these never ever fall out of your ears. And they are so comfortable you don't even know they are there. You can wear them while you are on your long photo shoot without any discomfort whatsoever.
Thank you Barzan Digital we love you!
When will the winner be announced: Friday 21st December after I have had coffee, breakfast, another coffee and then got around to reviewing all of the submissions.
When will the prize be awarded: Anytime you want after you have been announced as the winner. But be warned! You will be photographed receiving your prize and your ugly mug will be published on the web as well as in any news paper desperate enough for a story who will publish it. So don't enter if you are afraid of being turned into a mega star.
How to improve your chances of winning: Bribe me!
Good luck everyone. Can't wait to see your images, now go and get clicking!
