It’s time to show off your photography skills! This week, July 10th to 17th, send in your best Blue Mars Screen Shots to win BLU$ prizes!
All photo submissions will be uploaded to the Blue Mars Flickr and Koinup accounts for voting between July 18th and 25th. The photos with the most comments and favorites in each of the four categories during that time will win BLU$, so encourage your friends to vote for your pictures!
First place in each category will win 1,500 BLU$, and Second place in each category will win 1,000 BLU$!
The Photo Categories are:
Send your best Blue Mars photos to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with the following information:
1) Your Name
2) Your Blue Mars ID (the name in the parentheses when you chat)
3) The Title of your photo
4) The Category you would like your picture to be judged in
5) A description, or at least the location in Blue Mars
All photos will be uploaded to the official Blue Mars Flickr and Koinup accounts on Monday July, 18th 2010. The description of each photo will include the photographer's name, the category of the picture, and info about the contest, encouraging people to comment on and favorite their preferred photos.
Voting will end Monday July 25, 2010. The photographers of the top two pics in each category will have the prize money credited to their Blue Mars member accounts.
In addition to BLU$ prizes, the top photographs in each category will be featured on the Blue Mars blog, and on the Blue Mars Facebook page.
Winners will be chosen based on comments and favorites, so make sure to beg, plead, and threaten to reveal dirty secrets about your friends if they don’t visit Flickr or Koinup to vote for your work!
1) The photos in each of the four categories with the most and second most combined comments and favorites from Flickr and Koinup will be the first and second place winners, respectively.
2) Only the first comment on each photo from one individual will be counted as a vote!
3) Send us your best work! Only one photo per category per person please!
