Welcome to the family of "Color Photo Award" groups.


The Color Photo Award groups are all about showcasing and honoring the best high-quality COLOR photos on Flickr. To help us accomplish this goal, please honor your fellow photographers: comment on two photos in the pool after submitting your photo.

Members give trophies to photos they think are fantastic. Each Color Photo Award level has its own unique trophy. Your photo moves from one Color Photo Award group to the next as it collects the required number of trophies for each level. IS YOUR PHOTO GOLD WORTHY?

To get started, send your photo to the Color Photo Award - PREMIER group, then comment on any two in the pool.

As new photos are added to the group, members look through the pool for photos that interest and attract their attention. When a member finds a photo in the pool that s/he thinks is fantastic, s/he honors it with a Color Photo Award - PREMIER trophy, also known as the group comment code, which you'll find near the top of this page.

TROPHIES ARE VERY IMPORTANT!!
Color Photo Award - PREMIER is a "trophy only" group.

Your photo must receive at least one (1) Color Photo Award - PREMIER trophy in order to remain in the group pool. If your photo was invited with the group's invite code, your photo automatically has the required trophy.

Photos are given a 10-page grace period in the group's photo pool. Any photo that hasn't received a trophy (or invite) by the time the photo reaches page 11 in the group photo pool will be removed by our automated sweeper.

The group tag "ColorPhotoAward" will be added to photos that remain in the group by our automated sweeper.

As photos advance to the next level they will be removed from the previous level. Please do not resubmit photos to Color Photo Award - PREMIER if they have received an invitation to Color Photo Award - BRONZE.



Invite others to join the fun here at Color Photo Award - PREMIER. When you're out adn about on Flickr and you find a fantastic color photo, tell the photographer why you like his or her photo, then invite them to post their photo in our group. See the Invite Code below.

Invite Code (Trophy) -- Use this code for photos not yet in the group photo pool.

Group Rules

Color Photo Award - PREMIER -- An award-oriented group that celebrates your creativity from the click of the shutter button to the click of the mouse in the digital darkroom.

Posting & Awarding It's what we do.

Limit 1 photos per day.
Post 1: Award 2

Your photo must receive at least one Color Photo Award - PREMIER trophy (an invite counts as a trophy) by the time your photo reaches page 11 in the group pool or it will be removed by our automatic pool sweeper.

You may resubmit photos with fewer than five Color Photo Award - PREMIER trophies to the group pool, subject to the daily limit. Resubmitting too quickly or too often may have a negative effect on your fellow members.

Photos on page 11 or higher in the group pool with one or more PREMIER awards will have the "ColorPhotoAward" tag added by our sweeper.

Receive 5 Color Photo Award - PREMIER trophies from 5 different members and your photo qualifies for Color Photo Award - BRONZE.

Photos qualifying as BRONZE will be removed from PREMIER when the invitation to post to Color Photo Award - BRONZE is issued and may NOT be resubmitted to Color Photo Award - PREMIER.

Photos & Photo-editing

Showcase your photos straight from the camera or work your digital magic in your favorite photo-editing program.

If it's COLOR and it's a PHOTO we want to see it here.*

*Some restrictions apply.

With the exceptions of background textures, photos should have been taken by the member. Photos that include subjects and themes taken from other photos and then layered together will not be accepted unless the subjects and themes were taken by the member submitting the image. We want to see photos that you have taken.

NO 3-D renderings or 3-D transformations, such as 3-D computer generated landscapes, or 3-D photo cubes, spheres, trapezoids, etc., etc., etc.

NO computer fractals

NO kaleidoscope images.

NO mosaics, such as those created using fd's flickr toys, for example.

Neutral-hued monochromatic photos such as sepia-toned and similar mono-toned photos should be submitted to our sister group: Sepia And Toned Photo Awards.

Black and White photos should be submitted to Black and White Photo Award.

PHOTOGRAPHY, not imagery, is our primary focus. Works that cannot be readily identified as being based on one or more photos may be rejected or removed from the group pool, even if they have received invitations or awards.

So, what MAY you do to your photo?

This list is not even close to exhaustive but here are a few ideas....

Stop action sequences, storyboard style or in a single frame
Selective coloring or desaturation
Adding bubbles or sun flares, etc.
Pushing the color saturation
Diptychs or Triptychs
Seamless panoramas
Painterly effects
Posterization
Colorization
Color shifts
Textures
Layering
HDR



Color Photo Award - PREMIER does not accept photos that contain nudity or pornography. We are a family-oriented group. All photos submitted must be classified as SAFE according to Flickr's Terms of Use. Objectionable material will be rejected or removed at the Group Admins' discretion.

An invitation to post your photo does not guarantee acceptance.

BLOCKING ADMINS OR MODERATORS IS GROUNDS FOR BEING BANNED FROM THE GROUP.

By submitting your photo to any of the Color Photo Award groups, you give your permission for your photos to be posted on any of the groups' front pages or in any of the groups' discussion threads for the purpose of promoting your photo and inviting members to give it awards if they find your photo deserving. If your photo is posted by to a front page or discussion thread, you will be properly credited; i.e., "Photo By: (your user name)."

Updated 12 NOV 2008
Changed submission limit to 1.
