    Contest Closed
    [strike]This is the last day to submit. When I get home from work tomorrow (Wednesday... about 6:00pm MST) I'm going to stop accepting submissions and will start to get the poll ready.[/strike]


    Cliffs first:
    The site has been delayed by several months (too busy working on other projects and real life has got in the way) but i'm finally getting started on indePrinted.com again. The site lets people upload their photos and set prices on them. Other people buy them and you get a large cut of the money made on your print.

    I found a printing company that I think I'm happy with. I want to get a couple prints to test with... and I figured I might as well give a few OTers the opportunity to get one of your photos printed and shipped to you for free.

    Contest:
    I'm looking for 3 images to get printed in a large format (20x30"). There are no guidelines to what the images can contain. After one week from today (on Wednesday February 20th) I will open a poll to the OTAP section where they will vote on their favorite shots.

    The top three by most votes will get their prints shipped to them.

    At this time, only OTers in the US can participate. I don't want to have to worry about international shipping at this time :o

    To submit your piece, please send an image (1200x1200 max at this point) to xxxxxxx. You must be able to supply a RAW/NEF file or extremely large DPI image if you win. If it's a photo you've modified, a TIFF file would also work too.

    Please make sure the email contains the words "indeprinted" and your username.

    Oh yeah, any of the winning prints also have the possibility of ending up in my condo in addition to getting sent to you :o. I'm looking for some new stuff to decorate my walls :coold:

    //Update:
    Thanks for the sticky :coold:

    You can submit a max of 3 photos. You can only get one printed though, so if two or more of your prints are in the top three, the 4th, 5th, etc place winners will get theirs printed instead of you getting multiple.

    That's alright. High quality jpegs will work too.

    What I really need is the highest quality possible out of the image. The program I'm going to be testing to upscale the images to a 20x30 size needs the highest quality image to start with. If the best you have is a 72dpi compressed jpeg, it will look like balls when scaled to something so large :(

    Hmm, good question about the limit. I know it's hard to pick just one if you have a lot of photos. Lets say you can submit 3, but you can only win one print. If you get the 1 and 3 spot, only one of them will be printed and the 4th place person will get the 3rd print.

    As far as what I like in particular... I think i like landscapes :o But the winners are for OT to decide, not me :o

    I don't want to ban anyone from participating. I'll leave it up to them to decide if they want to submit or not.
