    I don't know, but they had some professional (I suppose) photographers going around to shoot...

    Oh and to add on, I wonder how the photo that has all the participants would look like man... lolololol.

    Me also first time joined today. Found it an interesting experience.
    Some winning entries didn't appeal to me but I thought a few was done rather well. I think a significant factor for winning is to be able to stand out from the crowd in terms of interpretation of theme cos the judges have to sift through a thousand over entries every 3 hours. Their eyes probably became numb to the many shots that used the same treatment even if they were really nice shots (e.g. composing with magnifying glass/ spectacles for theme 1, shooting all the usual praying poses for theme 2, or making all the zoom-zoom/motion effects for theme 3). Perhaps we find the winning entries rather ordinary because we only have to compare them with our own shots but not with the dozens of other shots that have a similar style as ours?

    I guess it is just the nature of the photo contest.
    What to do? Have to learn to be more original if want to join next time lor.
    Maybe Canon should call it the "Be Original Photo Marathon" instead?

    I think still worth the $10 (2cans of red bull + 2 bottles mineral + Tshirt + 1 free print out...)
    I bought PhotoYou magazine $9.90 got 2 copies.
    Life is always waiting for the RIGHT moment...

    Yes, it is exactly the point. That's why I suggested to put the description in the title because it seems many photographers were still gathering and taking shots of the same thing. So it must be that many participants still don't realize that originality is what they are after.

    At least it will help the redbull lady turn away the many photographers harassing her for those drink cans!

    Here are the my 6yo son's entries for yesterday's CPM. It's our third family outing and frankly, if you go there for the prizes alone, it's a wasted effort and the wrong place to go, it's not like as if the judging takes weeks to conclude, the results are given on the same day.

    The event is clearly for marketing purposes for Canon and its co-sponsors, and the chance for everyone to win something based on their unique efforts should be enough. C'mon, it's not like you were short changed in terms of fees paid out. The camera cleaning, shirt, printing, and drinks alone cost more than 10 bucks, it's obvious that the fee charged wasn't for profit purposes.

    However, I don't understand one of the winning photos either, the almost-pure black one... I guess it may have to do with the fact that the image was rear-projected in a lit hall and it's different when viewed on a monitor. I hope someone can post the actual image here for viewing.

    The entries in the previous years seem a bit more creative than this year's though, not better or worse, but just less creative/experimental this year.

    I like the new uploading system the kiosks employed this year, much more efficient than the manual-entry systems of the past. No viruses too hehe. Still wished they brought back the ice-cream sponsor.

    Charge

    Here's him taking a pic of me while I was photographing him and mom...

    Just some random thoughts...
    you saw the big picture
    Man greatest tool. The imaginative mind.

    It was my first photo competition yesterday and I had great fun yesterday doing the shots. Although I was alone doing it. Anyways...you can see my shots other than the submitted ones here:

    http://www.facebook.com/album.php?ai...38168702889288

    The projection for the slideshow yesterday was terrible, simply did no justice for the better shots taken. Especially the winning shots. Canon posted the winning shots for all categories on Facebook this morning, should really check the pictures out.

    some winner were excellent! but for the others.......looks more like snaps than good work.......sigh.....

    like some of the guys here said...this is more for canon publicity than to seriously find good photographs.
