“The Home” Photo Contest
Home is different for each of us. Some of us live in houses or apartments — others live in tents or trailers. Profotio is seeking images that best depict the buildings and materials that provide us with shelter. Whether grand or modest, old or new, our home is our refuge. Realism is crucial in this call for entry as each artist is encouraged to present images that depict his or hers true meaning of home.
- First Place – $300 plus a one year membership with Profotio and their winning image will be displayed on the front page of Profotio.
- Second place – $150
- Third Place – $75.00
- Additionally, second and third place will receive Profotio memberships and their images will be displayed on the front page.
Please enter images that display the homes alone without their occupants.
Wining images will be selected on the following criteria:
- 25% credit to adherence to theme of contest
- 25% credit to originality of thought
- 25% to artistic interpretation
- 25% to photographic skills.
Both color and b&w pictures are accepted. Please submit all images on line. Only JPEG files will be accepted. Images with watermarks, captions and/or borders will not be accepted. The size of the images should be 800 pixels as the largest dimension (width or height.) All layers should be flattened and have a jpg compression quality of 7or 8. Images should be saved with a resolution of 72ppi. Images will be viewed as sRGB profiles. File names should be in the following format: Lastname_Firstname_image1.jpg, Lastname_Firstname_image2.jpg, etc. Do not use special characters. There should only be one period just prior to the file extension (i.e. .jpg). Please note: image title is not the same as file name. Each entrant may submit up to three (3) images.
