Pentax K-3 Photo Contest: Finalist Selection Procedure

As the first phase of our K-3 photo contest slowly draws to an end, soon it will be time for us to announce the finalists.

As a reminder, there will be 128 finalists: 64 chosen by our judges, and 64 chosen by our members through nominations.

To nominate a photo to be a finalist, simply comment on it and state why you nominate it.

Use the special contest gallery page to browse all the submissions and quickly leave a comment:
K-3 Photo Contest Gallery View - PentaxForums.com

Since we had such a big turnout, I will dedicate 3 full days for nominations, though June 3rd. The contest closes to submissions at the end of the day on May 31st, and finalists will be announced on June 4th, 2014.

I'd like to wish everyone who entered good luck!

Can you please clear up a bit of confusion on my part Adam?

Are the 64 member chosen entries based on the number of nominations per picture?

i.e. if a picture has 50 nominations it will rank higher than one with 2 nominations or in other words the 64 entries will be selected based on the number of nominations per photo.


I'm not sure I fully understand how the member selection process works.

Thanks.

You've got it right. However, the judges reserve the right to review the photos and assign more weight to nominations from senior forum members, etc.

I noticed there are still some nominations being given - what is the final date after which no nomination would count ? Sorry if I didn't get it the first time - just wanted to clarify whether I still can nominate something or not ? Cheers!

I am confused about the nomination process. First, how to you "like" a picture? Second, there were a couple of photos I liked but thought needed improvement and left suggestions but did not nominate. Are they automatically nominated because I left a post? Are "like"s counted because there are many I like but do not understand how to "like"?

You have to state that you nominate the photo, comments don't count as a nomination.

To nominate the photo you need only write so, e.g. "I nominate this shot' or 'I vote up this shot' or similar - if you only liked it or gave suggestions or otherwise commented , it doesn't count as a nomination. Ton nominate you have to be clear about it. Hope it helps

people started nominating photos well before the submission due date... do those count? really they shouldn't, because that gives people who entered earliest a huge advantage.

I saw that some photos were nominated, so I figured they were "in", and did not add my nomination. I did finally nominate one, and I'm sure it will win...maybe.
