Direct Link To This Post Calendar Event: (Entries) DPC #280: "The best of 2019"
    Posted: 27 January 2020 at 10:31
Dear Dyxumers,

It is a time to start the "Best Of 2019"
     
This time we are after your best photo taken in 2019 and that's the only restriction in this DPC, i.e. even your photo was a finalist or a winner in a previous DPC it is still eligible. So time to start digging in your drawer/hard drive to find those two which are absolutely outstanding .
Example:

@@ "On a green day"

A580 + DT 16-80mm F3.5-4.5 ZA, 1/1000 sec, f/5.6, iso100

Good luck,
Svjetlana

--------------------------------


REQUIREMENTS FOR VALID ENTRIES:
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. Please don't leave an empty line between the title line and the image. 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:

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 closes at noon on 27/2/2020.


--------------------------------


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



which will be sent to him for free. It should be noted that this award was only possible because of Confusedapollo's hard work and commitment.

--------------------------------


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. At the same time we hope that we will share our comments and experiences with each other so each of us can benefit and improve our photographic skills.

DPC is opened about monthly and all registered users are invited to participate. Each DPC is opened for approximately one month. After DPC is closed a committee consisting of moderators/administrators and some invited Dyxum members will select a list of 8 finalists (more or less). After that a new thread is opened presenting all finalists 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 Dyxum.com can participate,
  • The pics must be taken with A-Mount or E-mount cameras (either film or digital),
  • Photos that have been winners or finalists in previous DPCs (or shots that are similar) are not eligible. Generally we encourage all participants to take shots specifically for the DPC instead of taking old shots from their repositories,
  • 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 like added vignetting or HDR. 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). However if any Dyxumer would like to post to this competition anonymously or has no photo-hosting set up yet, he or she can email images as attachments, along with a suitable title to dyxum.dpc@googlemail.com (please send also a PM as gmail may treat the mail as spam). Please note that images bigger than 800 pixels (th elonger side) will be resized without any further post-processing. Please note also that we are using free email and third-party photo-hosting services for this and so can offer no guarantees this process, but the services we are using seem quite reliable. If you have any issues over postings not showing up a reasonable amount of time after mailing them to the account, please PM a relevant admin/moderator.

Copyright
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. The winning shot may be used on the front page of the Dyxum.com website and in the DPC Hall of Fame. 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
