'Ollo everyone, I am Jill :hi: and it is my great pleasure to announce the first official photography contest for The Ocarina Network! :D



This is an exciting opportunity for ocarina players everywhere, especially for those of you who like to take pictures!
And all you have to do to enter is take a picture that shows your love for the ocarina!

:muse:

This may be a picture of you with an ocarina OR a picture OF your ocarina(s) in a creative and unique environment.
You may cosplay, use themes, adventure and travel, and so so much more.
Whatever you decide, because the sky is the absolute limit! :D

  • You must be a registered member on TON. Sign-up is free.
  • Take a picture of you with your ocarina(s) OR a picture OF your ocarina(s) with a camera device.
  • Submit your photo to THIS thread with TWO IMAGES:
    The original photo and then an authentication photo that contains the similar background(s), ocarina(s), person(s) or yourself used in the original photo, WITH your name written on a card.

    This will help our judges to verify originality.

:aria: After the contest, all photos will be later featured in a collab video on YouTube to celebrate our love for music and to help raise ocawareness.
So whether you're entering for the pretty green stuff, the ocarina or just for fun, your photo will be included in the video and shared with the world!!!


So get the tripod out, the lenses wiped, the imagination workin' and those cameras a'snappin'! :)

So try something new, go outside the box and, most importantly, have FUN :D

You are allowed to use ANY kind of device that is able to take a picture!

Photoshop, GIMP and all other photo editing software is definitely allowed.

We also allow for those of you without instruments to use ocarina apps such as Songbird and Smule!

RULES

Original work is a MUST.

No cheating, sock pupeting (making multiple user accounts to enter more than once) or PLAGIARISM of any kind will be tolerated... :brokenoc:

If it is proven that a photo is not your own work, it will NOT be judged.

Photos should also be FREE from sexually explicit and otherwise offensive content that would harm or insult any group of people.

As always, please respect TON's community guidelines for your safety and for everyone else's :)


We look forward to all the entries! Good luck, everyone!

[+] My Sketch Thread and FREE commission info
Sketch Thread Link
If you would like me to draw a Peanuts scene which includes Snoopy PM me with the scene, either an image or the location of an image will do, and we can work from there. If you have something else you would like me to re-draw PM me, same as above, and I may try it out. Unless I have several requests at the same time I should be able to start the project within a week of an agreement, approximate finish time will be discussed in PM's as well as updates as I work on the scene. When complete I will post an unedited image of the drawing in the thread I linked above. The only reason I say commission is that's the most fitting word I could think of lol -.-;

Oohh, I couldn't play good enough to compete in the last contest (I was trying to learn Gummi Bears Them but fell short on time.) but I will definitely work on this one. With Spring settling in here in KS, I look forward to getting out and doing photography and now i get to try my hand at capturing the essence of Ocarina at the same time :-)

I was into photography when I was younger, I esspecially liked to photograph nature. I never had a proper equipment for this, and still don't. :C Though I never did it seriously. I can make a new topic and post a couple of my older photos, if anyone is curious to see my lack of skill. :D
