As suggested by Mark&Manna, a competition involving Agony (a program that I wrote).

Results of the previous competition can be seen at: www.kelbv.com/agony_competition.php

The prizes:
First prize: 150USD - either in cash (via paypal) or flickr.com pro accounts.
Second prize: 50USD - either in cash (via paypal) or flickr.com pro accounts.

The competition:
The competition is to produce the "best" Agony image. This will be an image produced directly from my Agony software, or an image/collage involving consisting primarily (I know this is a loose word - but the spirit should be clear) of works produced by yourself using my software.

Images will be judged on their Agony content firstly, any other qualities, e.g. humour or meaning, of the image will be secondary.

All entries must be the work of the entrant, and any images used within an entry must be the either the work of the entrant or covered by an appropriate license such that their use is permissible.

An image will be considered an entry if it is:
1) uploaded to flickr.com,
2) tagged with "agony competition", and
3) added to the pool of images in the Agony group.

Entries correctly tagged and submitted to the pool by 18:00:00 UTC Tuesday December 25th 2007 will be considered for the prizes.

The entries will be judged by me, my decisions are final.

For examples of some of my work using Agony, please see my photostream:


There is further information on how to use the software at the three following tutorials on my webpage:


Who can enter?
Any flickr.com member, pro or otherwise.

There is no rush, so don't feel pressured to enter early. You may enter as many times as you like, so upload and submit whichever images you feel particularly happy with.

If you have any questions, please post in this thread or email/flickrmail me.

Feel free to post any images, submissions or otherwise, in this thread.
Feel free to post pretty much anything else in this thread as well.

Good luck, and have fun!
