Good job, everyone! Check back soon for another contest. I'm on a roll!
aftondays: (lavender ii)
All right. I am not really as dumb as I look. Oh wait...yeah. Maybe I am.

SHEESH. It should work now. Give it a try. (If you've voted before, you'll have to do it again. I left out yet another photo.)

Look at the pictures and then vote! )

And they're in! I got some nice submissions for the Photo Contest That Is Orange, and it is time for you to choose your favorites. As usual, here are the guidelines:

1. Please view each photo at its original size. Thumbnails are often insufficient for judging an image.

2. Vote for up to three pictures--no more than that. If you vote for more than three, I will ask you to fix it, and if you don't, your votes will be disqualified.

3. You can vote for your own picture if you like.

4. The theme is orange. I leave it up to all of you to decide what orange is. ;) You can choose to vote for a photo based on the quality of the shot, or simply on how much you like it, or both.

5. Voting will end sometime on Thursday, October 23, giving everyone plenty of time to participate. Winners will be announced and all the photographers revealed at some point not long after that. Check back here to keep track of how the votes are going and do spread the word!

Here they are in thumbnail form, behind the cut:

And now, to vote:

In the end, I decided on orange.

October is an orange month. It could not be otherwise.

Please spread the word.



The Rules )

And yes, the deadline is the 18th in honor of moredetailsJessica's birthday.

Well, I was going to have a run-off vote since there was a tie for second place. But I'll just hand out two medals instead, okay? Okay. Here are the winners:

The photos are at their full size, so check behind this nifty li'l cut )

Good job, winners!

Now find out who took the other pictures )

I enjoyed putting this together and plan to do another contest before too long. Stay tuned!
aftondays: (church)
Well, after all was said and done, I ended up with sixteen submissions! Thanks to everyone who participated. I enjoy putting these together. And now it's time for everyone to look at the pictures and vote. Here are the rules:

1. Please view each photo at its original size. Thumbnails are often insufficient for judging an image.

2. Vote for up to three pictures--no more than that. If you vote for more than three, I will ask you to fix it, and if you don't, your votes will be disqualified.

3. You can vote for your own picture if you like.

4. The theme is religion/faith. Since it is such a personal subject, there may be various factors going into which one(s) you vote for. It doesn't have to mean anything to you personally. You can choose to vote for a photo based on the quality of the shot, or on the way it speaks to you, or both.

5. Voting will end sometime on Saturday, September 27th, giving everyone plenty of time to participate. Winners will be announced and all the photographers revealed at some point not long after that. Check back here to keep track of how the votes are going and do spread the word!

Oops! I accidentally omitted one of the valid entries. I'm so sorry! To rectify this mistake, I've added another poll. Please take a look at the new photo (last one in the album) and if you would like to vote for it, please go to the original poll and take away one of your votes. Then go to the new poll I've added and vote on it. Do not vote for a total of more than three pictures. That means if you want to vote for this one, you can only vote for two in the other poll. I'm very sorry about this mistake!


[Poll #723702]

It would be nice if those of you who have told your friends about this contest would also notify them of this new development!

aftondays: (insane)
Ahhhhh! Okay, again, the octopi are cute and funny and grodie and all that, but we are not doing write-ins on the photography contest. This is not a democracy, folks, sorry.

Seriously. It was amusing for a while but if I keep getting comments sent to me saying, "I vote for the octopi!" I think I might stomp off in a huff and ban from my journal all the people who say that. Or even delete the octopus pictures. And you don't want me to do that, do you? I didn't think so. For the last time: no write-ins!
aftondays: (chocolate)
It is time for you to vote for your favorite photographs of food. I'm pretty sure I haven't left anybody out; if I did, please let me know. Here are the guidelines:

1. Please view the pictures at their full size before voting. Often a thumbnail is not enough to tell you how good the photo is. There are two pages of pictures; make sure you look at all of them!

2.Vote for up to three pictures. I know it will be hard, since there are so many to choose from, but do your best! If you vote for more than three, I will ask you to fix it, and if you don't, your votes will be disqualified. This happened on the last contest and the results were changed because a few people didn't go back and change their votes.

3. You can vote for your own picture if you like.

4. The theme is food. I think all these photos have subjects that qualify as food, so there should be no problems here!

Voting will end sometime on Wednesday, May 10th. Winners will be announced and all the photographers revealed at some point not long after that. Check back here to keep track of how the votes are going and do spread the word!

VOTE HERE )

ETA: The baby octopus salad photo has been deleted, as have all the "write-in" comments from people who think it's funny to spam a stranger's journal. Most of the people who "voted" for this picture in response to [livejournal.com profile] jameth's call to spam my LJ have been banned from commenting here, as has [livejournal.com profile] jameth. Anyone else who leaves a comment trying to vote for "the write-in" or otherwise giving me grief over this will also be banned and any real votes they make disqualified.

ETA II: I accidentally omitted one of the valid entries. I'm so sorry! To rectify this mistake, I've added another poll. Please take a look at the new photo (last one in the album) and if you would like to vote for it, please go to the original poll and take away one of your votes. Then go to the new poll I've added and vote on it. Do not vote for a total of more than three pictures. I'm very sorry about this mistake!

I had so much fun with the last photo contest, I decided to host another one. I hope it's not too soon, but I am impatient!

The Rules )

The results are in! I had to disqualify a few votes (from people voting for more than three pictures) but the first and second places would have remained the same anyway. Congratulations to the winners!

To see who took the other photos, go here. You can leave comments for the photographers on this entry. This was a lot of fun for me to organize. Thanks to moredetailsJessica for her help, danialandDania for the theme idea, and to everyone who participated, whether by submitting a picture or just voting!

Today is April 6th. I think I might have confused some people, because I am a goofball. So riddle me this, about the deadline for the photo contest.

Contest Rules

1. Pictures must be submitted by midnight (CST) on Thursday, April 6, 2006 to: aftondays @ gmail.com. Please include your LJ username in your e-mail.

2. The picture(s) you submit must have been taken by you. It doesn't matter when, so long as you were the one with the camera at the time. Limit two (2) contest entries per person.

3. The topic is What Makes You Smile. Obviously, this is a very subjective choice, which may make voting difficult, but it will allow you a lot of freedom with what you choose to photograph!

4. Photos must be a minimum of 400px and a maximum of 1000px on their longest side. I can resize pictures if you are unable.

5. No edits may be made to contest entries except as follows:

* You may change a color photo to black and white.

* You may crop.

* You may make color changes if your photo was in print and digitized with a scanner, so that the digital version matches the original print version.

All other edits will disqualify your photo(s). Obviously we're going on the honor system here as I can't check up on you. Just remember to keep it fair.

6. All may enter and are encouraged to do so, but I reserve the right to deny entry for any reason I see fit. If entry is denied, my reasons will be given to the entrant and a new photo may be submitted if it complies with these rules.

Please spread the word!
