Group Description

Following the success of the Light Painters 2010 Olympics setup by BlaisOne at:
2010 Light Painting Olympics

This group has been formed for fun. Its all about everyone getting together and having a good time. The idea of the competitions is to set the Light Painting community some themes and challenges and encourage creativity and interaction. This is a great opportunity to try new Light Painting techniques and participation in the group. We are a friendly and helpful group of people if you are unsure or you need advice please ask.

Light painting, light drawing or light graffiti is the creation of photos usually at night by moving a hand-held light source or by moving the camera. Light sources can be torches, LED's, glowsticks, cathodes etc.

Please checkout Light Junkies for great photos, advice and tutorials.


The competitions will start on the first day of each month. There will be 3 competition threads in each month during the three week period. Each with a different theme or technique e.g:

1-Liquid and Water
2-Tacky Mask

- Each competition theme will be created as a Discussion thread.
- You can enter one photo per theme.
- Photos must be placed in the appropriate theme thread.

If you have an Image posted in a thread you may then add it to the group. Please do not add photos to the group if they are not in a competition thread. Please see full submission and voting guidelines.

1st - 21st of each month
Submissions will close at midnight your time-zone on the 21st of each month.

Starting on the 22nd and open for one week to close midnight on the last day of each month. Everyone who has entered MUST vote (otherwise will be disqualified) and anyone who stumbles upon this group is welcome to vote too.

Announced the following month after the competition closes at the admin's convenience. Winners will be awarded their champions medal (sorry it's not real) and each winner will be eligible to post their images to the: Light Painting Champions Group

All photos submitted should be taken within the specified dates of the competition please do not submit previously taken photographs.

If your photo is removed from the group, please do not be offended.
Please be polite and respect your fellow Light Painters and enjoy the challenge!
