The members of GADC have decided that the best of the three subjects offered for the period of March 12th to 25th is Straight Down; the one thing we can’t control by vote is the weather; it is the middle of March - Good Luck!
Straight Down? I guess we might not need the “obviously in flight / higher than your eyeline” stipulation for a couple of weeks then …
As discussed at length in previous RTF and Calendar Competition threads, it would be greatly appreciated if you would take a couple of minutes to RTFRules.
The requirement is to submit a still image created using a drone to illustrate the subject of the competition. The subject for the competition running from 00:01 March 12th to 23:00 March 25th 2023 is Straight Down
The image must be captured during the time that the competition is open. It is a Reason To Fly competition so please show that the image is created by a flying camera!
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
