If you are a photographer living on the web and you have not yet heard of Outdoorphoto then you are living in the dark ages, which cant be fun if you painting with light. ODP has a thriving online community and some amazing images are posted to the site daily. In 2011 they will be searching for the Outdoorphoto Photographer of the Year.
Read the press release after the break for the full details.
With 2011 fast approaching and with another amazing year behind us, we wanted 2011 to be all about the images!
With over 20,000 members, Outdoorphoto has one of the largest photographic communities in Southern Africa, and to celebrate this milestone, we have decided to host the
2011 Outdoorphoto Photographer of the Year Competition
This competition will be a little bit different than our other competitions in that it will require that every photographer enter into as many as possible categories to achieve as many points as possible in an effort to not only claim the title of the Outdoorphoto Photographer of the Year, but also to win afirst prize voucher of R10,000 to spend as you like at Outdoorphoto.
The Competition will consist of 8 separate categories for which you will gain points by entering, and more points by being selected for the top 8. The 8 main categories will be known beforehand, and you may enter a single image into every category at any time before the category closing date.
Furthermore, there will be 4 Hidden Challenges with specific requirements and these will be made known to you at random intervals during the competition. Again, entering a challenge will give you points, and being in the top 8 will again give you points.
This time round, it’s not only “the best shot” that wins, it’s the photographer that can think a bit out of their comfort zone, and give good results when it counts… no matter the topic, no matter the challenge!
Prizes will be awarded to:
- The Photographer of the Year 2011
- Each of the Hidden Challenge Winners
- The Best Overall Image
Further prizes will be awarded to:
- The best Dragged Shutter Image of POTY 2011
- The best High Speed Flash Sync Image of POTY 2011
- The Best Shallow Depth of Field Image of POTY 2011
- The Best Duo-Tone Image of POTY 2011
As you can see, there are more than enough prizes to go around!
