Love - Contest Announcement

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 22, 2012, 11:04 PM

:heart: :iconphotographersdream: :heart:

PhotographersDream is holding a contest :la:
Get your cameras and get shooting, Premium Memberships are at stake! :squee:


As you may already have guessed, the theme for the contest is Love :heart:
This is a really versatile theme and you can to a lot with it - your entry might be a couple in love, someone you love, a pet you love, or a place that is special to you.
In case you're still stuck, here are some examples to help you (although with a bit of imagination you'll be able to come up with many more possibilites):
096 by Shace make it disappear by eemotional Golden retriever Ennie by Lina-182
love kiwi - kiwi's heart by dkraner I follow rivers. by benialicious Love Is A Little Higher by oO-Rein-Oo
I cannot hate you by sandiebelle hearts by seasfairytale L o v e by Fudgee0


This contest will have three winners but not in the regular first, second, and third place manner. Instead, there are three categories and a single winner for each.

General Winner

Goes to a winner without any special criteria on their entry.
Browse Entries

Emerging Artist

Goes to an artist which is new to both deviantART and the art of photography, and does not have a large amount of watchers.

Hello :heart:
I have a few questions. First of all, are we permitted to submit more than one entry into the same category?
Second, I was wondering if I qualify for the Emerging Artist category. I've been drawing for this account ~strikemaster752 for over 2 years but only 3 months ago I created this account ~DancelandRoad for my photography. I'm new to the photography world so I was just wondering.
Have a beautiful day! :iconcocoloveplz:

Hi! :wave:
Nope, you can only submit one photo per gallery, but you can submit to all galleries if you choose ;) So, that's a max of 3 entries but only 1 per folder :D
Yes, that would definitely qualify for the Emerging Artist! You're new to photography so as far as I'm concerned you can make it :)
