ECM Troll Photo
Submissions of photo-only artwork images. Read the image-rules on Elftown Creature Marathon
(In short, it has to be your image and it has to be free to copy, but it doesn't have to be new). The goal of this contest is to get a nice image of a typical troll to put on top of the Troll
Add your image and a link to your house here.
ALL IMAGES MUST BE UPLOADED TO ELFTOWN!
To upload your image full-size you can use the feature 'Upload a folder of images' that is shown on your house.
This feature allows you to upload one, multiple images or zip-files in their original size to a wikipage.
Once you click this link you can follow the instructions. See also uploading images
Upload a great looking photograph of a typical troll or a realistically looking photo-manipulation
or a dressed up human in case you can't find a real troll...
In regards to 'stock photos':The stock image has to be that of an Elftown member and for a photo entry, there has to be a substantial amount added/done with it to enter it. - The Council.
EACH MEMBER MAY SUBMIT ONE (1) ENTRY
Exceptions might be offered if there is a valid reason for it. But, if you do submit more than one image, you will greatly lower your chance of winning, as the votes for your style will be spread out on two entries.
Except for the normal badges and stuff, the winner will get credits on what we hope will be the best page about trolls. We will pick one troll-photo or more as winners.
Please note the extremely long deadline! It's because trolls tend to be pretty rare and we want the best shots we can get.
Any entry that does not follow the "Troll theme", will be removed.
Photography with a minimal amount of manipulation. We don't want images that look too artistically modified
If you have photos of atypical trolls, you're welcome to submit them here, but we'll mark them as outside of contest.
REMEMBER THE GOAL:
- The BEST QUALITY photos
- The MOST TYPICAL "Troll" photos
- LARGE PHOTOS
...to represent Elftown having the best Troll Page on the Internet as part of the Elftown Creature Marathon!
This may be helpful:
Appearance: A troll is a fearsome member of a race of creatures from Norse mythology. Trolls are somewhat ugly creatures, strong of body, tend to be heavy set, but always have muscular arms and legs, usually big noses, and large ears with flat, bald heads.
Three important notations:
When the finalists are posted in the Main Street Poll or on a public poll page, the participants are not allowed to beg for votes for their own entry
. Do not ask people to vote for your entry via private messages, guestbook messages, moods, wikis, or by any other means. Your entry will be disqualified if you are caught doing so. It is perfectly fine to advertise THE POLL, however!
If you feel any of the entries break the rules, please speak up before the entries make it to the polls
. You can still speak up even after the contest is closed, as long as the polls have not yet gone up yet. Complaints received after
the aforementioned will not be considered valid.
For discussions about the Elftown competitions: Here it's discussed if an entry is in accordance with the rules and similarly more complicated issues that can't be solved with a simple wiki-comment. Go to: <forum:Elftown contests>
