Competition Rules

Post by sp3ctre » Fri Feb 01, 2008 11:08 am

In order to keep a level paying field I am going to define some rules for the photo competitions.

One entry per person
The car in the picture must belong to you (or wife/gf etc)
Please make images < 1024 width
Photos must be unique (i.e. no re-submissions)
Photoshop alterations ARE allowed in general. There may be months where we have a non-photoshop comp though, so watch out.

Rule Addition - 11/28/13

Z4-Forum Calendar Competition

The Z4-Forum annual calendar will consist of 1st place monthly contest winners from November to October. Please keep the following in mind when choosing your photos for the monthly competitions.

All photos submitted must be LANDSCAPE format (HORIZONTAL orientation) and have an original available without a border that is a minimum of 5 (five) megapixels (about 1900 by 2700 pixels). This will ensure a decent size and quality picture for the calendar that can be cropped and resized as required to fit the calendar format.

Remember the picture must be taken by you and the picture must contain your Z4. No pictures of scale models Z-4's.

If your entry wins the monthly contest you will receive a PM asking for you to e-mail or otherwise provide the original image within a few days after the voting closes. Once your high res image is received it will be stored on the Z4-Forum server until needed for the following years calendar. If for any reason you are unable to provide the required image in the time allowed or do not respond to our request your picture will be disqualified for the calendar. At the sole discretion of the forum administrator a picture my be disqualified for the calendar for any reason. Watermarks will not be allowed on calendar images. Credit for the photo will be given on the calendar itself.

Now for the important bit...

Under NO circumstances will we tolerate vote manipulation. If entrants are found to have posted on forums (here or elsewhere) asking for people to "help them", then they will be disqualified. It is not fair and we will not allow it on the forum.

Wow this sounds like fun. However, will it be a permitted submission if my son were to take the pic of my car for me?

Get him to teach you how to take great shots, then take one yourself, that way you have a pic YOU can be proud of, and you also learn to take great pics... everyone's a winner :D

I think it would actually be quite a good idea if the photos had to be taken in the previous month. Would get some interesting photos then, I think.

Just to be sure-these should be pictures of our cars taken by us?
