Good light,


Each entry has to be preceded by two 'at' symbols (@@) and a title in plain text (i.e. avoid using any BB-codes) so that the automatic process we use can recognize an entry and pick it up. Exif information should also be included. Please use the following template to make sure you include all of the relevant information in a suitable format:

@@ photo title

Shutter speed:
Focal length:
Filters and such:

Entries which do not follow the above requirement will be discarded. Please remember also to get familiar with the Specific Rules section below.


This DPC will close on 2/1/2023 (earliest closing time) 21:00 Dyxum Time


Please let me remind that the winner will be awarded with the Golden Dyxum Patch


which will be sent to winner for free.


General rules and intent
The main purpose of the Dyxum Photo Contest is to share our images in an effort to present ourselves as photographers.

All registered users are invited to participate. Each DPC is opened for approximately one month. After that a new thread is opened presenting all entrants and asking Dyxmers to vote. This voting is also opened for one month, after which all votes are counted and a winner is announced (separate "DPC winner" thread is started).

Specific rules:
  • Only registered members of can participate,
  • The pics must be taken with A-Mount or E-mount cameras (either film or digital),
  • Photos that have been winners in previous DPCs (or shots that are similar) are not eligible.
  • Only two entries per competition per member are accepted. Entries can be changed freely up to the closing time. If there will be more than two photos from a given Dyxumer the last two will be accepted as his/her entries
  • For each entry following information should be provided:
    • Title (which must be preceded by the "@@" marker),
    • Camera model,
    • lens brand/model,
    • In case of film cameras - type/brand/speed of a film used,
    • EXIF info (not mandatory in case of film cameras): ISO speed, shutter speed, aperture, EV compensation, focal length (for zooms),
    • info about any special filters/converters.
  • Photos should be in an easy viewable size - no more than 1024x900 pixels (if they are bigger they will be automatically downsized by the forum app),
  • No extra textures or objects that were not present during shooting should be added. Generally the stress is on photography not on post-processing, although we accept some slight modifications. If you have any doubts ask the organizer of the contest by PM.
  • Images containing nudity, violence or and any kind of provocative subjects are not allowed.
Photos which flagrantly break the above rules will not be considered when selecting finalists.

Posting images
Unfortunately Dyxum doesn't have sufficient web space to host images for the contest. Because of this each participant needs another hosting site for his/her images and to post them by entering the image URL in the post (surrounded by the appropriate tags). Please note that images bigger than 800 pixels (the longer side) will be resized without any further post-processing.

The photos entered remain copyrighted by the original photographer, and by entering you are giving permission for the pic/s to be used on this site only. You will be contacted about any proposed subsequent promotional use on this site of your pic/s.

Should you have any doubts or questions regarding the contest please do not hesitate to contact a member of the admin or moderator groups
