Too bad, i took a photo but i posted online already so cant use it for the contest, will think of another idea,,,, :cry:

The below pic was actually created for my Photoi "Yellow" Contest but just to find out that the Yellow in Photoi was closed in Sep2004 but i only learnt about the Photoi Website on Sep2005... ala... so i started putting my creation to online critiques and now i cant use it for nikon contest again!!!!

I guess i like this creation, but the picture has no luck to take part in any "Yellow" Contest Anymore.... MaMi its OVER!!! :bsmilie:



Good Luck to Everbody!

Though the terms and condition did not mention that the photos submitted must be taken by Nikon camera, do you think that is implied?

This contest is jointly organised by joint NG and Nikon. So does it means participants has to use Nikon camera? Or it is opened to all cameras made? :dunno:
I second that, then again even if we use other cameras to shoot and claim that we use a nikon, nobody can tell. hmmm


$0.02 worth

I dunno about the rest, but I am perfectly alrite with that actually. If I want my photos to be judged and hopefully get some visibility, its rather worth it. Not that my photos will be worth a lot of money. :bsmilie:

Most competitions fail to respect the photographer's copyrights to get free marketing material, but Nikon is a provider of photographic equipment as well as an established supporter of professional photography. So what's the contradiction there? :thumbsd:
