Many thanks for bringing this amazing contest! (^o^)/
Btw, I'd really liiiike to win a SN t-shirt to show everyone I love this place! :p I'll have to give my best! :D I have to find an idea first... ^^
Just one more reason to love Shadowness! This has been my favorite site since I joined. Such a quality site in terms of design, administration, and community. Can't wait to enter one of the categories. *brainstorms*
The person who submits takes ownership and it is considered one entry per contest. That same person can collaborate with his friend and as long as the piece is different and the person who submits is equally different, then it's fine.
Hi :D I have a quick question about the category, "If Shadowness was a Product". Does it really just have to be a product or can it be something else? Like say, if Shadowness was an Octopus. Is that allowed? (Lol sorry for my bad choice of example.) Thanks! I really want to know, I'm working on something for the contest muhahahahaha
Hi! Umm so well I took a photograph for this contest and I uploaded it and added the FTW tag. But then the next day I saw that the tag had been removed. Does this mean that my photo does not qualify or is not up to the standards or something?? Here's the pic - http://shadowness.com/Jini/irresistive
I added the tag again. Please tell me if its not fit for the contest; I'll remove it then.
Oh I see. Well it does say it's for the FTW - Photography Contest. Do I need to add anything about the photo itself?? But the rules state "-Please do not change your original contest upload by editing the image, changing the resolution or title, or your work may be excluded from judging. "
What should I do now?=.=
I am so sorry for being such a bother but I really want to get this right.
