Contest page now known as "true-awards.com" separated from DPChat.net!

' . substr('//true-awards.com/images/trueawards2.png', strrpos('//true-awards.com/images/trueawards2.png', '/') + 1) . '

My final decision on the contest website stands for 4 times a year turnaround and additional stuff for prizes, such as Mastering Model Shoot by Frank Doorhof!

First contest HATS will be awarded with,

1st place : 1 Year Free DPChallenge membership, Mastering Model Shoot book and framed certification
2nd place : 1 Year Free DPChallenge membership, framed certification and a 15 oz. "True Awards" coffee mug
3rd place : "DPChat.net" 11 oz. coffee mug and framed certification

4th and 5th places will get a framed certification each

Submissions with a simple registration is open... no fees required now and ever! *Please read the rules*

deadline is end of this month!

To those already registered, just to let you know you don't have to wait for the deadline. There is no restriction when the photo was taken, could be 10 years ago, or a month ago, as long as you have the original. Subject is "HATS" to honor "Hat awards"...

Public voting starts end of this month and will go only 1 week not 1 month due to low entry as of now! After the public voting, there will be a week long juried selection of first 5 images and they will be awarded.

For a good cause to help stop the bleeding in one of the best, if not "the" best, websites around, DPChallenge.com, some of us doing extra work such as this SC with a free membership giveaway, this website to conduct live interviews and make things more interesting and with this Free DPChallenge HATS giveaway marathon... but there is one more thing: "DPChat.net Contests"
.
I invite you to register and enter to win actual gifts like Free DPChallenge memberships, Free DPChat.net Mugs, Free DPChat.net hats and actual framed certifications with winner's name and winning photos printed on, at DPChat.net Contests website!
.
Read about this "Super Side Challenge" website and see yourself. Only the best of the best can win contests there, dual level voting and only single editing rule applied for all contests with a little twist. It will be tough to win, but fun to enter. The awards come through sponsors, no fees to become a member and there won't be any fees in the future.

' . substr('//www.dpchat.net/images/contestlink.png', strrpos('//www.dpchat.net/images/contestlink.png', '/') + 1) . '

First contest subject is "HATS". Checkout the rules for this contest at DPChat.net Contests website. You have one month to enter. No starting time restriction for your photos, all you have to have is the original file, straight out of your camera if asked. Why no time restriction? 1-If you have any photos that you took, but somehow missed deadline, or just sitting there you wish you could enter to a contest or something... here is a good chance to do that! 2-DPChat.net Contests website will carry only the winners in its showcase, others will be deleted. So, winners must be the best of the best.
.
Join when you get a chance, tell your friends and families about it, and enter your photo. The website still under construction but registration and upload is available right now, no reason to wait until fully running, which will be very soon. You have a couple of weeks before the public voting starts!

Public voting starts end of this (Jan 2014) month... February all month (I could drop that to two weeks now, since I do have many people helping me out for the giveaways) there will be a public voting, then 5 selected jury members will award top 5. All 5 winners will get something in the mail, no electronic ribbons... because there is no membership, there are no members page.

All photos, from all time are ok as long as you have the originals with you!

If you have registered to DPChat.net contest webpage, remember, there is no time restriction or any other restrictions for your entry other than you have to have the original image file, straight out of the camera. By uploading your photos earlier, you'd help me to find any bugs that needs to be fixed, if there is any. Submissions ends January 31st and public voting starts February 1st.
If you haven't registered yet, here is the linky

I am in search of jury members for upcoming contests including the "HATS" subject open right now. I do have one person from Photo Camel website, need another 4 people for the job.

Jury voting takes 1 month, no rush.

Preferred requirements for the jury member:

- A pro photographer who is currently making money out of photography, full time or part time.
- A photographer who was a jury member in the past for another official photo contest(s)
- Anyone from DPChallange website or outside DPChallenge website is ok.

Please PM me if you have anyone in your mind!

I gave hats in the past to those we (as in most active members) think deserves one as well.

Such as late Sherryl (RIP)
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/45000-49999/48228/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_693768.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/45000-49999/48228/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_693768.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

...and bribing purposes to ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/1.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/1.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Langdon

etc...

However, by giving free hats away, I encourage people to...

1-become a member (for some selected challenges such as February Free study)
2-just join to DPC and try to win (as the second hat offer in February open place)

I will be also giving hats to those who didn't win, never had a ribbon but passed other none-ribbon registered members regardless their place, which also was done in the past.

So, most giveaways done with my decision, but there will be some that I ask other members (active members the most) help me out who should get one.

BINGO!
and I will use your wording on my website ;)
