So I believe this had to become a blog post because really, people don’t normally read notecards and not everyone is on plurk and not everyone watches Flickr religiously (like I do…I get lost for hours *eep*), but anyway there is so much awesomeness of contests happening!
I highly recommend trying them out. Not only will it help in development of photography skills, but it can really get you out there and win you some awesome prizes!
1. Mon Tissu – by Elie Spot & Anouk Spot
New Blogger Search! Fashion Editorial Photo Contest!
What can you win? -
GRAND PRIZE: You will be added to our official blogger list which gets you free Mon Tissu releases for life! In addition, you will get a 1 hour private shopping spree (you pick the date!). During your spree, we will join you at Mon Tissu and assist you in any way you need, passing anything you ask for. The sim will be closed for this hour, so it will be completely private.
TWO RUNNERS UP: 2500L Mon Tissu store credit each!
Who can enter? -
ANYONE! Unless you are already on our official blogger list!
How to Enter -
We want you to create a fashion editorial-style photograph, showcasing a look that you love. This look must include at least 3 pieces from Mon Tissu, and at least 2 of those pieces must be clothing items (shoes count as clothing). You can wear clothing from other brands as well, but your Mon Tissu pieces must be visible and easy to spot! We will be looking not only at your outfit, but also at the setting, the theme, the perspective, and the quality. We aren’t requiring any post-editing, but we welcome it! A breathtaking image is what we’re after. This can be achieved any number of ways, so be creative! We also want you to write a short paragraph to go along with your image. The writing should support the photography and assist the viewer in understanding the purpose of your image. You can talk about the clothing you’re wearing, you can make up a story about the subject, you can really take this anywhere you like! Let your text show the kind of writing you would pursue on your own blog. Under your paragraph, add your CREDITS! Be sure to credit every piece of clothing, your accessories, shoes, skin, hair, makeup, poses, props and location! Its important to let your readers know about everything you’re using, even if you don’t mention it in your article. Once you have completed your image, writing and credits, you should add your photo to the Mon Tissu Flickr Group ( www.flickr.com/groups/montissu ) and title it “Mon Tissu Blogger Search Entry – (Your Name)”. Paste your paragraph and credits into the description, and submit!
You can submit a maximum of 2 entries. Your image(s) must be new, they can’t be recycled. Your text must be original. All entries must be submitted on or before September 19, 2012. If legitimate credits aren’t provided for each item being shown in your image, your image will be disqualified. Crediting is very important as it informs readers and protects creators. Entries must be submitted under the Second Life account name you intend to use for blogging, as all winning prizes will be sent to the account listed in the title of your entry.
*We will be accepting entries now through Wednesday, September 19th, 2012. Winners will be announced on Friday, September 21, 2012.*
