Hi all –

First off, I want to announce the final member of our jruy … 21.gif Bear_Music. So glad to have him on board.. So the jury for this challenge will be the five of us:

21.gif Bear_Music 21.gif Dr.Confuser, 21.gif DrAchoo, 21.gif bspurgeon, 21.gif EstimatedEyes

I’m really look forward to that part of the challenge, something we haven’t done/seen around here before. Our goal is to get the photos reviewed and the winners announced within 7-10 days after the challenge ends; we’ll see if we can accomplish that.

A few questions have cropped up about the categories.

Originally posted by denbote:

question: if the photo is a travel portraiture, which category should it fall then?

Up to you ... it can compete in either category. Depends on how YOU see the image.

Originally posted by KarenNfld:

OK, I've put mine in studio/portrait because I didn't know where to put it but now I think I should change it. Without giving it away, it fits in these categories: macro (no category for that), creative, studio and nature. Where should I put it?

Originally posted by Venom:

I've got my photo entered and would like to join this side challenge. My photo falls more under the category of "Sports/Action". Which of your categories would you rather I put my entry?


I am going to create another category called “Other” for things like Macro, Sports/Action, and other things that don’t fit. Put the category you would like to have entered that in in your post and your photo comments, and we’ll take that into account for the juried portion of the challenge (i.e., you won’t get dinged for a shoehorn). For the scoring component, I’ll post the ranking, but it won’t mean much because, like in the main challenge itself, you’re just competing against a number of entries across a variety of genres.

Alright I am competing against some great photographers in Landscape/Nature/Animals Travel.. I am in!

ETA : Changing the category - reading 21.gif scarbrd's post, I think mine might not fit there either.

I was originally thinking landscape, but it doesn't really fit if you tie in Nature and Animals.

So I guess put me in Travel.
01/21/2010 01:27:08 PM · #114
If there is a category for "other" I will put it there. If not, I'll put it into creative.
01/21/2010 01:28:41 PM · #115
yea, if there are enough ppl i'll go Other, if not leave me where i am
01/21/2010 02:25:11 PM · #116
Mine is Sports/Action and Travel so if "Other" doesn't work out please put me Travel.

Thanks,

Keith

If I understand the rules, jurists will not be participating, yet I still see them listed in the categories.

Can you clarify?
01/21/2010 02:55:49 PM · #118
If the Other category gets created, put me in there please instead of Nature/Landscape/Animals.

scarbrd, I think he meant that they're not participating in this side challenge but they may be in the official challenge. Which puzzles me even more... ;\
01/21/2010 02:59:36 PM · #119
Hi there, just noticed that I dropped off the travel list. I wasn't on the first version, was on the second listing, and now I've been dropped off. I feel like a yoyo--was it something I said?
;-)

I am going to create another category called “Other” for things like Macro, Sports/Action, and other things that don’t fit. Put the category you would like to have entered that in in your post and your photo comments, and we’ll take that into account for the juried portion of the challenge (i.e., you won’t get dinged for a shoehorn). For the scoring component, I’ll post the ranking, but it won’t mean much because, like in the main challenge itself, you’re just competing against a number of entries across a variety of genres.


My entry is definitely in the "Sports/Action/Competition" category but if there are not enough entries for that then "Other" should be ok. I'll keep my eyes open if you post again and want me to move my entry. Thanks again Brandon (a.k.a. Venom)

There are two components to the challenge ... the first is score-based -- who scores better in the site challenge, within the sub-categories. Jurors are eligible for that part only, because its just based on the challenge results. As its evolved, the bigger and better (in my view) part of this is the post-challenge jury review ... and for THAT, none of the jurors are participating. However, for that that portion all the entries will be considered together, and the category part will just be taken into account in the judging process (e.g., how it stacks up against others in the genre).

Sorry 21_F.gif JerseyGenie .... I'll go put you back in. Anyone else who I overlooked or screwed up, let me know and I'll fix it. Thanks!

there are two challenges here.. one where the highest rated image in the best of challenge is the winner and the other where the jury is going decide the results..

Obviously if one of the jury members wins top prize in the first portion of the challenge then it won't be the jury deciding but dpc voters so I don't see any reason for them not be included.. when they go on to jury post voting then their entries won't be counted
01/21/2010 04:00:50 PM · #123
Dennis, last minute change-- request a move to Portrait. Sorry B/W peeps, i believe my portrait is the stronger of my two options! Plus, i've always entered a landscape in Best of, so it's time for a change.
01/21/2010 04:07:49 PM · #124
I'm just now seeing this, is it to late to get in? I haven't decided what to submit, but I still have 7 hours and 54 minutes left :)

01/21/2010 04:17:27 PM · #125
Am I too late?? If not, put me in B&W please. If I am, I'll sit here and watch the scores roll in:))
