Contest - Your Paparicious Finger (2011)

Postby Rebi-on-the-Roof » Sun Oct 23, 2011 10:39 pm

Hey what about an Elena-look-alike-contest, "san ke sena"? Image

Image

RULES:
1. you have all creative freedom you need, it's your choice how to create face, hair and clothing. You can also choose/add a creative background or surrounding.
Exceptions:
a) the item you decorate as Helena has to be one of your fingers (you can, alternatively, also dress someone else's finger if that's easier for you)
b) what you are not allowed to do is to take a full body pic of helena and stick it at your finger -this would be boring and wouldn't include any own ideas. Everyone knows that the competition is about your finger, so it's natural that "Helena's body" will somehow look like your finger, still, at the end. It's completely your choice though how to create her face, hair etc.

2. you can send in as many photos as you want.
3. you might use photoshop to edit the final photo* - please, when sending your entry, give the following information: 1. photo has not been edited digitally (setting contrast/brightness, sharpen the pic and optimizing colours is within this category)/ 2. photo has been taken of my actually decorated finger but I have attached/removed/changed several things by a photo editing program/ 3. most of the work has been created digitally - this will make sure to judge everyone in a fair way and to make the entries comparable. I might create different categories for winning at the end.
4. each photo sent in should be at least 1000x1000 pxl.
5. of course: no entry should be offensive in any way and any entry should always respect the artist
6. all entries will be published later on the forum or other pages, and might be included to any future pdf-document for presentation. besides the best entries will be forwarded to Helena.
7. deadline: December 15th, 2011 - so you will have enough time for, I hope, many creative entries!
8. DO NOT POST THE PHOTO ON THE FORUM - you don't want anyone to steal your ideas, do you? send it to me by PM please. if I should not reply within 2 weeks i might not have received it, so please contact me again then.
9. the winner will be choosen by public voting. People are supposed to judge how your finger resembles Helena (including a judgement of your effort), how beautiful the final product looks and how creative your entry is.
10. The prizes: HEROES CD single, magazines (AntiVir, DownTown 2010), official printed autograph cards (downtown june 2010 photo), a copy of the coloured, glossy hard cover book "magic wood" and a physical copy of "PARIZ - the ultimate fan book" (interview book & biography)

+ HEROES CD single in beautiful paper sleeve (not included to this photo)

* if you want to create a full work on photoshop, advanced skills will be necessary: photos of a finger decorated on photoshop should look real or at least kind of surrealistic at the end, not like a children painting Image . so, if editing by photoshop, you should know how to transform elements so they look 3-dimensional and so on. If someone sends in a full-photoshop version there might be two categories for winning at the end to support both kind of works. I also want to see real photos! see more info here:

There are three options - you only have to give me information which one you used:

1. you can send me the photo without editing it by photoshop/other program (you can adjust colours and contrast/brightness though if you want to)

2. you can send me a photo of a really decorated finger which you have edited a bit by photoshop/other program - in this case you could have changed the background by photoshop, or maybe you added something to the finger because it couldn't be done in reality etc. but still you had some decoration on your finger indeed when you took the photo, so it's no work only by photoshop.

3. you can create a photo out of photographed pieces, so it's a work created by photoshop/othe program mainly. but in this case it is important: the final result should look real (or surreal in a really artistic way, by doing really crazy things), and not like a children painting at the end. if you don't have much photoshop (or other program) experience, please step back from this option, because your entry might be not included to the voting then. I've set up this rule because it's quite easy to make something like this (see below) - but these are the pictures I don't wanna see (and I am afraid that if I don't forbid this I would get a lot of entries like this):

Υπαρχουν τρεις επιλογες. Απλα θα χρειαστει να μου δωσετε πληροφοριες σχετικα με αυτην που επιλεξατε:

1. Μπορειτε να μου στειλετε τη φωτογραφια διχως επεξεργασια με photoshop ή αλλο προγραμμα (επιτρεπετε να τροποποιησετε τα χρωματα και την αντιθεση/φωτεινοτητα αν θελετε μονο)

2. Μπορειτε να μου στειλετε μια φωτογραφια απο ενα αληθινα διακοσμημενο δακτυλο την οποια εχετε επεξεργαστει λιγακι με photoshop ή αλλο προγραμμα. Σε αυτην την περιπτωση μπορειτε να επεξεργαστειτε το φοντο με photoshop ή ισως να προσθεσετε κατι στο δακτυλο επειδη δεν θα μπορουσε να γινει αλλιως στην πραγματικοτητα, κτλ.
Αλλα οπως και να εχει επιβαλλεται να υπαρχει μερικη διακοσμηση στο δακτυλο σας στη μη επεξεργασμενη φωτογραφια, δηλαδη το προιον σας να μην ειναι αποτελεσμα του photoshop και μονο.

3. Μπορειτε να δημιουργησετε μια εικονα απο φωτογραφημενα κομματια ετσι ωστε να ειναι κυριως προιον photoshop ή αλλου προγραμματος.
Αλλα σε αυτην την περιπτωση ειναι σημαντικο το εξης: το τελικο αποτελεσμα πρεπει να δειχνει ρεαλιστικο (ή σουρεαλιστικο με μια καλλιτεχνικη εννοια εχοντας κανει δηλαδη τρελα πραγματα) και οχι σαν μια παιδικη ζωγραφια. Αν δεν εχετε εμπειρια απο photoshop (ή αλλο προγραμμα), παρακαλω απομακρυνθειτε απο αυτην την επιλογη επειδη η συμμετοχη σας μπορει να μη συμπεριληφθει στην ψηφοφορια. Εχω δημιουργησει αυτον τον κανονα επειδη ειναι σχετικα ευκολο να δημιουργηθει κατι σαν αυτο (δες παρακατω) αλλα αυτες ειναι οι φωτογραφιες που δε θελω να δω (και φοβαμαι πως αν δε το απαγορευα αυτο θα λαμβανα πολλες τετοιες συμμετοχες)

Image ok we have a new rule because of Akos: ache made to your finger won't be honoured. anyone hurting his finger for winning will be disqualified. we have to do this statements in regard of the save-your-hands charity organization.

I have some mini umbrella-items like those used in cocktails. I guess it will make the perfect skirt.
