It's going to be a stormy week season here in Korea.  Koreabridge is hosting an online exhibition of  photos from the storms ahead for Korea.   We'll be providing some prizes, but this is more of a community 'show and tell' than a contest.

More Details

Who can submit photos?  
The contest is open to anyone - expat, Korean, & anything in between. 

What kinds of photos can be submitted?

Photos need to have been taken taken in Korea between August 26 ~ September 2, 2012.  Photos can show the 'calm before the storm', the storm itself, or its aftermath.  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 20 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. A description is preferred, but not required.   Under tags, enter 'typhoon2012'.   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? 

Again, this is more of a photo festival than a 'contest', but since we are giving a way a few prizes...
Online ratings will be taken into account, but a judging panel will make the final contest decisions. Judging criteria include the ability to portray some 'typhoon in Korea' experience in an engaging way, exhibit strong creativity, as well as demonstrate a high level of  photographic quality.   
If you have any problems submitting photos or questions about the contest, please post them in the Koreabridge Stuff Forum.
