- Who can enter the photo contest?
Except for full time professional photographers and those on the judges panel, the contest is open to anyone (expat, Korean, & anything in between) who is currently living in Korea.
What kinds of photos can be submitted?
Photos need to have been taken during Summer 2011. How can we tell if it was taken this summer? We probably can't, but we trust you. Those who publish photos must have the legal rights to publish the photo. We reserve the right reject photos if they are considered in violation of our posting policies. Each person can submit up to 15 photos.
How can photos be submitted?
All photos must be in .jpg format and the maximum upload size is 5MB. (info about resaving your photos here and here). For exhibition and judging purposes all photos will be resized to an image no larger than 1200 pixels in width or height. To submit a photo, register at Koreabridge.net. Click 'Create/Photo'. Each photo needs a title, but description is optional. Click 'choose photo' to select your photo. Under tags, enter 'summer2011'. If the photo was taken in Korea, add the tag 'korea'. If it was taken outside of Korea, add the tag 'travel'. A moderator may need to approve photos submitted by new registrants before they appear online.
Do photographers retain the rights to their photos?
All photo submissions must be the property of the entrant. No images with third party copyright ownership are eligible for entry. We encourage the use of Creative Commons licensing, but licensing is up to the photographers and can be stated in each photo description. Koreabridge reserves the non-exclusive right to use any images submitted to the photo contest in online exhibitions, publications, or for promotional purposes.
How will the images be judged?
Online ratings will be taken into account, but a judging panel will make the final decisions. Judging criteria include the ability to portray some kind of summer experience in an engaging way, exhibit strong creativity, as well as demonstrate a high level of photographic quality. All photos must be submitted by Sept. 21 and annoucements will be made shortly thereafter.
What kind of wacky categories are you going to come up with this time?
Sometimes we don't know until we see the pix, but we will probably include categories like
- 'Hottest' summer photo
- 'Rainy-est' summer photo
If you have any problems submitting photos or questions about the contest, please post them in the Koreabridge Stuff Forum.
