What is this?
Welcome to the latest official photomanipulation competition. This contest is a bit different; we have divided contestants into teams, which will be led by coaches. The contestants will train with their coaches for 4 weeks and then have 4 more weeks to create a photomanipuation on their own.
What are the rules?
The rules for this competition are as follows:
If you can't take constructive criticism, please withdraw from the game now. You will be disqualified the very first time you attack your coach or teammates or give them a hard time for providing you with critique.
Your coach and teammates cannot do anything FOR you; they can only guide you. You must do your own work.
The final product of this contest is a photomanipulation to be created between July 15th and August 11th. You will receive the theme for this manipulation on July 15th through your coach. Your photomanipulation is due by 11:59 PM Pacific Time on Sunday, August 11th.
We'll be looking at teamwork and team cohesion when we judge entries. It is important to be a good team player by keeping in touch with your coach and teammates and putting forth a genuine effort.
If you need to be out of town or miss some time, don't despair! Just let your coach and ^Aeirmid
know what's going on.
You must use only legitimate resources in your photomanipulation, and you must credit all stock. (Note ^Aeirmid
if you have questions.)
What is the schedule?
WEEK 1 (June 17)
Your coach should be in touch with you this week to find out more about you and what your strengths, weaknesses, and goals are. You should give your coach ONE goal of what you want to accomplish with training. (It's okay to have more than one, but there is one you should focus on.)
WEEKS 2 THROUGH 4 (June 24 through July 14)
You will work with your team and coach for 3 more weeks. You will receive assignments and feedback on your work.
WEEK 5 (July 15)
You will receive your theme from your coach. The theme will be somewhat vague, and you should interpret it as a team (meaning that the entries from each individual within the team should have similar... but not necessarily the SAME.... concepts). For example, if the theme is "dreams," one team may choose to create fantasy manipulations whereas another may do nightmares. It's up to your team to decide.
WEEKS 5-8 (July 22 - August 11)
You will create your own photomanipulation from the theme. You can ask your coach and/or teammates to give you guidance and feedback. However, they cannot do anything FOR you.
THE FINAL PHOTOMANIPULATIONS ARE DUE TO #Photomanip101 BY AUGUST 11, 11:59 PM US PACIFIC TIME. You can submit it to #Photomanip101 in the Beyond Boundaries Contest folder.
The prizes are set for 3,250 points, a 6-month premium membership, and a premium stock pack for EACH player on the winning team (including the coach). =RoxRio
