The GADC Hive Mind has been working for the last week and has decided that the subject for the period 00:01 February 26th to 23:00 March 11th is - Long Shadows
So now you have your subject for the next fortnight please don’t let your excitement prevent you from reading the boring bits below - the rules.
The requirement is to submit a still image to illustrate the subject of the competition. The subject for the competition running from 00:01 February 26th to 23:00 March 11th 2023 is - Long Shadows
The image must be captured during the time that the competition is open and obviously be taken by a drone in flight - so somewhat higher than your eyeline please!
Editing is confined to colour and exposure adjustments and crop only. There must be no removal or pasting of an object.
You can create as many images as you wish and submit the best in this thread. However, only one image will be accepted for judging. If you wish to show multiple entries please place each in a separate post and indicate which one you wish to be your competition entry - otherwise your last submitted image will be placed in the poll. Basically, if you have a selection of images of the same subject, have the courage of your convictions and post only the one that you think is best
Images must be posted with the following information as a minimum:
- Time and date
- Aircraft/camera used
- Feel free to add any further information that you think will be of interest
Images will be judged by the members of GADC who may vote for any number of images by means of an anonymous poll open for two days after the closing date for competition entries.
Voting in the poll is open to all GADC members, whether they have entered the competition or not.
You may vote for all, some or none of the entries.
The original media may be requested by the judges in case of a dispute.
The competition subject will be announced every second Saturday around 22:30. The subject will be chosen by a poll of GADC members selecting from three that have been picked at random from the subject list. You may make additions to the list at any time.
The competition will run from Sunday 00.01 to Saturday 23.00 fourteen days later. Voting by poll will be open for a further two days until Monday 22:00
The winner, second and third-placed competitors will be announced shortly after the vote is closed and counted
Have Fun! Be Safe!
