Photo Contest Rules, Terms and Conditions

Rules:

The Florida Sun Coast Figure Skating Club Photo Competition (the “Contest”) is open to ALL photographers at least 13 years of age. The contest is open to all participants regardless of residence or citizenship, so long as the laws of their jurisdiction allow participation.

What to Enter:

We are looking for digital images of figure skating, either action or non action, taken at a figure skating event or competition in the last year. The images may be of your or someone you know and you are responsible for obtaining the necessary releases from the individuals depicted, and must be able to provide copies of those releases to The Florida Sun Coast Figure Skating Club upon request.

All photographs should accurately reflect the subject matter and the scene as it appeared. Photos that have been digitally altered beyond standard optimization (removal of dust, cropping, reasonable adjustments to exposure, color and contrast, etc.) will be disqualified. Multiple exposures that have been combined to produce a single “High Dynamic Range” image are acceptable. Images that do not meet these requirements may or may not be judged at the judging panel’s sole discretion.

Photo captions must accompany all submissions, and should include the subject of the image, the location the image was taken, and the name of the photographer(s).

How to Enter:

You may submit multiple entries. Entries will be reviewed by our judges and any not meeting the contest requirements will be deleted and contestant will be notified via email.

Each photo must be submitted electronically, by one (and only one) method:

The image must be uploaded from the Photo Contest tab on our Facebook page, www.facebook.com/fscskateclub. Use step 3, upload a photo.

Images will be judged on originality, technical excellence, composition, overall impact and artistic merit. The judges are a panel of Florida Sun Coast Figure Skating Club members familiar with photography and responsible for selecting images for various figure skating events.

Prizes:

The best overall image will be selected and the $50 gift card will be mailed to the person who submitted the winning image.  You will be contacted via email for your mailing address to send the prize to.
