Now taking submissions for the third annual FILTERED photo contest

Posted By on Wed, Nov 4, 2015 at 7:01 AM

Welcome to our third annual reader-submitted photo contest. Two years ago, we launched Filtered as a way to showcase some of the Charlotte area's talented local photographers, and we're back at it, yet again.

Theme:
Caution

You can interpret that however you'd like, but know that a line of caution tape or a traffic signal is not going to win this competition. If you’re going to send us a photo of a construction helmet, there’d better be something spectacular about its presentation. Please note: bonus points if your submission does not involve the color yellow.

Prize: The winning entry gets to be on a December cover of Creative Loafing, plus a prize pack that includes a $100 gift card to Basil Thai, a $50 gift card to Revolution Ale House and a $50 gift card to Clean Juice. One runner-up will win a $50 gift card to Whole Foods. Ten finalists will also be featured in the edition.

THE RULES

You, a Charlotte-area photographer, may enter up to three photos of which you must be the photographer. Name the photographs with your first and last name and number of photographs submitted — Example: OliviaPope_1.jpg, OliviaPope_2.jpg, etc.

Per photoshopping, we’re allowing only minor burning, dodging and/or color correction. Cropping is also acceptable. Think photojournalism for this contest. Read: If we can tell you Photoshopped it, you’re out.

Photos must be high resolution (we prefer 10 x 10.75 inches at 300 dpi, taken with the highest setting on your camera).

IF YOU UPLOAD A LOW RESOLUTION PHOTOGRAPH, YOU MUST BE ABLE TO PROVIDE A HIGH RESOLUTION PHOTOGRAPH OR YOU WILL BE DISQUALIFIED.

To send, email, Dropbox or carrier pigeon (just kidding — no printouts) to backtalk@clclt.com. Please include your first and last name and a caption for your photo.

Deadline: Nov. 29, 2015, by midnight.

If you have any questions about your submission, please contact Jeff Hahne at jhahne@clclt.com.
