Photography Contest Info
 
Our first annual Photography Contest starts Monday, September 2, 2013. This event is made possible by the amazing Jodi Friedman of MCP Actions.

No need for sign ups, just post your Round 1 entry in the Photography Contest Gallery no later than 23:59 EST weekly.

All challenges will be posted 6:00 a.m. EST Mondays in September and due by 23:59 EST per the scheduled dates:
- Round 1: Challenge begins Sept. 2nd, Due Sept 7th
- Round 2: Challenge begins Sept. 9th, Due Sept 14th

The contest is open to anyone interested in photography, whether you are brand-new, established or even just for fun! Prizes are limited to people not affiliated with Digital Scrapbooking Studio or MCP Actions.

We will be doing each week individually, non-elimination. That means you can join in one week, two weeks, three weeks or even all four weeks. There will be one big prize weekly; and one Grand Prize Winner.

To qualify for the Grand Prize you must enter all four weeks. You do not need to win, merely enter.

I am really looking forward to seeing all your photo's.

CT members can absolutely join in! Unfortunately, since I am part of the jury you cannot win her actions. However, I will work up a special prize for all participating site CT & Designers.

I will post more about Jodi & her actions on Monday, however, she has several FREE, amazing actions you can try out on her site: http://www.mcpactions.com/actions/try-me.html

Even better, she's got fantastic tutorials to help you make the most of her actions. Go check these out. You will not be sorry: http://www.mcpactions.com/ps-actions-video-tutorials

You will be allowed to submit photo's edited with her actions, including her free actions, in the photography contest.

This a Before & After I did of Dane when I first discovered Jodi's actions. This was done with hand edits & her free Mini Fusion Actions.

So glad its weekly no elimination! Will be gone part of the time so can participate for part of it! Also, are the actions only for Photoshop or will they work in Elements? I'm using Elements only since you have to join the cloud now to get full use of Photoshop.

This sounds AWESOME, Toiny! I'm disappointed that we can't win the actions too, BUT ... I'm always up for improving my photography skills. This sounds like the perfect opportunity for that!
