Photo Comp at CIRCA

Hello everyone, we are holding our first Holiday photo contest. It's an exciting time during this period and we thought we would offer you all a chance to win some prizes.  This is an opportunity to be creative with home and garden items you have collected from CIRCA in the recent days.  Be as creative as you like and submit your photos to the CIRCA Flickr group!


1st place - L$5,000 gift card + all new releases created for January 2016
2nd place - L$2,500 gift card
3rd place - L$1,200 gift card

The 3 winning photos will have their photos placed and featured in CIRCA's main store on Sun. Jan 3rd.

Photo Contest Rules

~  1.  Enter your photo submissions here in the official CIRCA Flickr group
         Title your photo on Flickr as follows:  "CIRCA Photo Contest 2015 - Your Inworld Name Here", then whatever you want to name the photo.   

         *   It's very important that you use your official SL avatar name in the title as people use alias names in Flickr (we won't be able to contact you easily, otherwise).
         ** You will require a Flickr account to participate.

~  2.  Three Items must be used from the CIRCA - Holiday Advent Tree from 2015.  These items must be distinctly different, so 2 colourations of the same item will not be considered as 2 separate ones.  The "free" items from the advent setup CAN be used for this contest.  You can use other CIRCA items from our product line and/or group gifts to ADD to your setup or even prior advent year items.

~  3.  Theme: Make the photo feel either holiday festive or winter.  We're keeping it relatively open so you can explore more with what you are trying to convey in your photos. 

~  4.  Please keep your photo submissions moderate maturity.

~  5.  Quality counts and all levels of photography are welcome!  Feel free to use photoshop, Pic Monkey or other photo editing software to touch it up and add details. Just don't heavily distort the CIRCA items.

         Tip : If you would like to use the in-world shadow effects, you can use antialiasing to eliminate jagged edges for better results.

~  6.  Enter as many times as you like.  You can resubmit your contest entry if you want to update your photo /make changes.  We will review all submissions.  Choose carefully what you want to send.

~  7.  Be creative and make your photo stand out!

~  8.  Submit by 11:59 pm SLT - December 31st

* Tips 
    ~ Don't wait until the deadline
    ~ Don't make the photo too dark, have it be clear.
    ~ Have your CIRCA items well shown in the photo.

In entering the contest, we will reserve the right to use your entries to be displayed in-world or on our future blog for the CIRCA brand.  If used on in-world or on our blog - you will be credited for your photo work.  You must be have sole rights to the creation and use of the photos you submit for this contest.  

Voting Date!
The votes will be counted on January 3rd, the day the winners will be announced in the CIRCA in-world group and subscriber group!

The Judges!
There will be 5 judges to review the submissions and cast their final votes.  These judges are all industry people who are either designers with experience in creating ads and photos or are bloggers with long term experience in creating photos for blog sites.

Most of all, have fun with this!
