Fame, Adulation...And a Cash Prize: 2nd Annual DAC Photo Contest is Launched
Posted September 12, 2012
The Delbarton Arts Council (DAC) Photography Contest is back and better than ever.
The 2nd Annual DAC Photography Contest was launched at last Friday's Morning Meeting and will continue throughout the year. Contest deadline is May 6, 2013 at 11:59 pm and not one millisecond later (studies show that youngsters do better with structure).
DAC wants your best shots in color, black and white, taken on your DSLR camera, point-and-shoot and, yes, your phone. The rules are simple: your subject should be anything relating to Delbarton, on or off campus, and you can submit a maximum of three jpg images. Starting the Contest earlier this year means you can take advantage of every season on Delbarton's extraordinarily photogenic campus, plus cover dynamic events like Homecoming Day on October 6th, which is always an amazing day for photos.
See complete rules here. Artists (that would be you, Mr. Instagram) agree to let DAC make them famous by using submitted images in Delbarton publications -- with suitable photo credit, of course. Check the back of this year's printed calendar and you'll see what we mean.
Need inspiration for your brilliant shot? Click here to view an album of the 2012 winning entries, here for all photo submissions, or visit Digital Photography teacher Dave Martin’s Digital Photography Hall of Fame on the second floor of the Science Wing. Entering is easy -- just email your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions (but don't even think of questioning that deadline. That's in lockdown, for sure) check in with contest organizer Matt Grella '13 or send a message to email@example.com.
We saved the best for last. In addition to the adulation of the entire extended Delbarton community, the first prize winner will receive a cash prize. That's right, free money. The amount has yet to be determined but who doesn't like cash...and fame? People shouting your name? Demanding a photo opps and/or autographs, sometimes at the same time? Brace yourself, sir, your fifteen minutes are coming. We can just feel it. Come on, hit us with your best three shots. And don't be shy. Even if you think you have no talent (and face it, you may be right) we are here to prove you wrong.
We end this webpost by sharing our philosophy regarding photography which we borrowed from a renowned (dare we say infamous?) local professional photographer who shall remain anonymous: "If you take a zillion pictures you're bound to get a few good ones." Hey, works for us...Go Wave Photography!
