Theme: "People in Color" - Our last 2 contests had many excellent black-and-white photos entered, so it's time to give the entries a little more hue. People will be the subjects this time, and it's up to you how to use color to give the pictures emotion and impact.

Timeframe: Your entry must be emailed to on or before midnight Mountain Time 06/05.

Prize: Bragging rights, and a position in the Winners' Gallery!

Restrictions: Please follow the following restrictions in order to submit an eligible entry.

- Your image must be a maximum of 1000 pixels (height or width), and a minimum of 500 pixels (height or width).
- Your submission email should have the title of the image and "Contest #3" in the subject. Please title your images, as the poll must have some way to distinguish between them - I don't want half the vote options to be "Untitled."
- Also, when you email your submission, make sure you include your FinalGear screen name so I know who's submitting what!
- Only one submission per user. Please do not create multiple accounts to submit more images, as it is 1) unethical, and 2) statistically reduces your chance of winning anyway.
- Your image must NOT contain any borders or signatures or anything to identify the photo as your own. The images will be stripped of EXIF data as to make the vote 100% anonymous. Please do not mention which photo is yours, and please do not post that image anywhere until the contest is over.
- Your image must have been taken after the contest has started, I will not accept old photos that happen to match the subject. This contest is designed to promote creativity, not find out who has the biggest backlog of good photos.
- Your image may be altered in whatever imaging software you choose, without actually altering the content of the photograph. (i.e. you can alter the curves as much as you want, but you can't paste in David Hasselhoff.) Editing out distracting non-content objects such as power lines is also acceptable.
- Please keep the submissions taseful and without gore/nudity. I like nude photography as much as the next guy, but this is a public forum. Don't submit anything you wouldn't put up in a public area.

If you have any comments or suggestions about the rules of the FinalGear contests, please voice them in the appropriate forum, or in this thread if you want.

When submitting your image, feel free to suggest a topic for the next contest!

Good luck, and have fun!

oooo interesting topic. I know this may sound like a silly question, but could 'people' include animals ie. pets too? Or will this possibly be its own topic later on, just a thought.
Happy shooting!

Yeah I would like to know too
Not a silly question at all! I was hoping to use animals and wildlife as a later topic, so I think we'll stick to "just people" this time around, if you don't mind. :)

Thats no problem at all. Just wanted to make sure.
Thanks :D
I'll give it a go, for all you fancy photographers will fear the wrath of my 70 quid Vivicam. :lol:
hehe, lovely subject. I wish I could use my older photos though :p
Hmpf, I had a perfect photo opportunity for this subject yesterday. Oh well. I've see what comes up.
i wish i can enter but i'm across the atlantic.
Or maybe there are no people living across the atlantic. :D
