"Show me your Pulitzer" Photo Contest
Forum member hosts photo competition with exciting prizes!
By PF Staff in Photo Contests on Oct 7, 2010
Forum member charliezap is hosting another exciting photo competition on our forum featuring three prizes!
The theme of this contest is "Show me your Pulitzer". This is somewhat of an unusual theme- but certainly a great one. Read on for details!
- First prize is going to be a Quantaray 70-300mm Pentax mount lens with macro. This lens is less than a year old and comes with lens hood and UV filter and original box
- Second prize is $75
- Third is $50.
You can see the photos taken with the 70-300mm by searching "quantaray" and looking at pics taken by "charliezap". If you don't want the lens and you came in first then you can take the $75, and if you you're in second and prefer the $50 over the lens, you can opt for that as well. The lens is close to mint condition.
Additional remarks from charliezap:
"I'm thinking of allowing 10 shots per person and the deadline will probably be around 6 months. The next statement should explain what I'm looking for in submissions to the contest.
I'm sick of seeing fluff pictures of sunrises, sunsets, kids, kittens, micros, macros (sorry Rense), rainbows, cars, boats, planes, oceans, lakes, yada-yada-yada. I want the good stuff that you see in the news and other media that evokes anger, pride, tears, joy, and other emotions. Pictures that become icons that we remember are everywhere. The world is full of events that happen daily. Not all of them are good, and if you're in the right spot at the right time you may capture an image that when viewed convey a thought provoking impression. The camera captures history and everyday drama in an instant that sometimes evolves into an image that lasts for decades. The pictures can be with or without people in them just as long as they convey the theme as described. If you have any questions about the new contest feel free to respond in the contest thread (below). Enjoy doing this and hope to see many entries when the contest is officially underway!"
