Unfortunately, I'm not a photographer and don't own a camera - but I'll be very interested to see what ends up being submitted. Good luck to all!

Stay tuned for Phase Two of the contest, you won't need a camera for that! :stir:

Can photos be composited images or just a bare bones photo?
shyflower — 2012-04-02T10:44:56-04:00 — #5
Photos should remind you of a song, not be manufactured to depict one. So, they will need to be just "bare bones". In phase two of the contest, we'll ask contestants to match up song title with the photos/text entries. If your photo has been manipulated, you'll be making it pretty easy for someone to "get" the title. Use your text to describe the characteristics of your photo that bring a song to memory without using the song lyrics or title.

I've sent mine.
How many entries so far?
shyflower — 2012-04-06T16:04:27-04:00 — #10
@itmitică ; where did you send it to? We haven't received it.
system — 2012-04-06T16:15:49-04:00 — #11
I've sent it to firstname.lastname@example.org. I've resent it now.
Maybe check the Spam folder?
Though I must confess to shamelessly breaking the rules!
ă not working for itmitică!

Is their restrictions on Military Photos? Have a bunch of those.
shyflower — 2012-04-06T21:06:13-04:00 — #13
The photo must be your property and if there are recognizable faces in them, you will need the permission of the people to publish them.
shyflower — 2012-04-06T21:09:19-04:00 — #14
I've received your entry, but sorry, it isn't eligible. It's a video, not a photo and it isn't your personal property.
system — 2012-04-07T03:36:07-04:00 — #15
The message has a photo attached. A photo that is entirely my work.
Please check again.
The video is the song described by that photo.
shyflower — 2012-04-07T09:18:04-04:00 — #16
So there is! I have the photo, but your text is less than 500 characters. Sorry, but still ineligible for this contest.
Along with your photo, write a paragraph or two (500 to 1000 characters)
For anyone who is worried about having to write 500 characters, here is what 563 characters look like:
Sagittis lorem est dolor parturient non velit diam cubilia eros. Sociis suscipit metus Metus. Tincidunt tincidunt viverra torquent ultricies tristique eget donec ultrices dapibus dis, porttitor ullamcorper morbi congue platea curabitur Tristique, ut pharetra netus rhoncus laoreet risus sapien odio integer conubia tempus cum ante nullam ac congue non imperdiet, dapibus Nam, facilisis nec eleifend.
Nonummy eleifend laoreet parturient. Nascetur magna conubia. Litora. Non nostra diam habitasse pellentesque platea est dictumst lacinia penatibus dis mattis proin. Et egestas vitae pretium hymenaeos ac cubilia lacinia sodales Phasellus.
You can do it!

I was reading an article about the 1k CSS contest (and was surprised at how small that is). 1000 characters really shouldn't be that hard When I write x-word essays for school, :mad: I just start writing and then see how long it is at the end.
Edit: I tried to put my
emoticon in parentheses and got (:mad:) which translates to :lol:

I'd do that, but then I'd have to worry if blanks, special chars and such, would disqualify me because it has to be 500-1000 without the blanks. And after that, if I put the song name in quotes, or not. Or if the image is a certain size, if it has a certain number of colors, if...
It looks far too complicated and worrying for me to meet the requirements of this contest. Consider my entry as withdrawn. Thanks.

Are you sure?
shyflower — 2012-04-07T20:27:18-04:00 — #20
I stand corrected. 551 characters in the dummy text I posted. Notice that is a character count not including spaces.
It's a shame that you found our simple rules too difficult to follow.
