STOCK CONTEST: Animals & People
You are challenged to create a stock image that depicts at least one person with at least one animal.
Judges are looking for inspiring images that capture something special about the relationship between humans and animals.
We will also be looking at the quality of the stock image. ie; it must be focused, good lighting, useful pose, well composed...
Whether they are pets or wild creatures, we want to see that the animals (& humans) are treated and handled with respect & care please.
Some great examples to inspire you are featured below.
Contest Starts May 10th
(closing date to be announced)
ANYONE may enter this competition but you will need to become a member to submit your entry
How do you do this?
As soon as you have submitted your stock photo to dA, apply to join the group, we will add you as a member and then you can add your entry to this folder: [link] or we can do it for you if you send us a note.
Your stock photo must be submitted to the 'Resources & Stock Images' category of dA.
If you need help with submitting your entry, please send your entry thumb link in a note to the group or to ~GoblinStock
ONE entry per person. So make sure its your best.
If you take a series of photos along the same theme then choose just the best single image to enter into this comp.
Must be a new image, not submitted before the start of this contest.
We want to see quality entries so make sure your stock photo is a decent size, at least 1400 px wide or tall, 300 dpi, not blurred or grainy and preferably with good lighting.
Its up to you to set your own stock usage rules but if you're new to the world of stock then it might be a good idea to research the rules of other stockers so you get an idea of what to expect or what you want to allow.
Just a word of advice, be realistic! I have personally seen some pretty confused, contradictory stock rules in the past and it just puts people off... and can cause major hassles for you. Keep it simple
