NGF Photographic Competition 2013
« on: January 29, 2013, 06:16:46 PM »
The NGF is holding a photographic competition for the first time - a great chance for you to get snapping and enter. The prize will be a 'virtual' prize entered against your name on the forum so it will reside with you until the next one and let the N gauge world know you are an expert with your camera. We are pleased to announce that Steve Flint, editor of Railway Modeller, will be the sole and final judge of the competition, but there are rules to be strictly observed please.

Rules

1.Photos must be railway or model railway related (there are separate boards in the media file)
2.Photos must be your own work.
3.There is a strict limit of 2 photos per person (if more are posted the post will be deleted and you will have to resubmit)
4.Photos must not exceed 500kb.
5.A 12 word allowance is given for type of camera used, date photo taken and location
6.No comments about the photos can be accepted from other members (they will be deleted!)
7. Closing date is April 5th 2013

Please remember the photo itself is being judged and not the subject.

How to enter

Ensure that your photographs are less than 500kb in size. Photographs will not load if the size is bigger

There are two galleries - one for Model Railway photos and the other for Real Railway photos. Ensure you upload your photo to the correct gallery. Enter brief details about the camera and date and location into the description box (about 12 words or less)

If you need help with picture resizing or uploading to the gallery then consult our Help Pages

Sorry about not allowing comments but we need clear boards for Steve to be able to look at so as to make his job as easy as possible :thankyousign:

Most of all - enjoy!

Hi Mick  :wave:

just to clarify matters, is it an overall limit of 2 Photos, or is it a limit of 2 Photos Per section  :hmmm:

Sorry for being a bit thick  :-[

Hi Dave,

At this early juncture I think we have to limit entries to just 2 overall. We're really not sure how many entries we are likely to get and don't want to overload the judge. The closing date is a couple of months away, though, so we'll monitor things and let everyone know if this changes. Hope this is OK?

I take it the model photos aren't restricted to one's own creations... :D

No Claude,
As we said, it's the photo being judged not the subject. Pictures of other 'models' can be sent to my private mail address >:D ;)

As the forum 'pimp' (not my description) I guess that makes me a prime target :'(
Anyway, it's pics of Steve Flint you'll need :P

Couldn't have put that better, NPN! But on a more serious note, are digitally enhanced photos acceptable? Personally, I hope not - I hate the things. I have had a whinge about a certain 'elitist' model railway organisation we have here in Australia before on this forum. I sent them a photo of my Franco-Crosti boilered 9F (featured in my album) for publication in their journal, and, without asking me, they digitally added smoke to the photo. This p..... me off immensely, but in the long run it showed them up big time - the smoke was coming out of the chimney at the front, and not from the side funnel!!  :smiley-laughing:
Anyway, if they are acceptable, I might have a bit play around with me fancy camera.

Cheers,  :beers: George.
