The-Hot-Shots' First Dual Photography Competition is now OPEN!!!

I want to say a huge thank you to the following for helping make this happen:


If you have any spare points lying about and feel like donating toward our grand prize please visit my profile to add to the donation pool or send me points directly….

All sponsors will have their icon and name on the winners journal page to thank them.

Now, to the specifics:

:target: Theme no. 1: Holidays/Vacations/Summer
(A new place you've been to, snaps from your holiday or something to express the season - anything the theme inspires!)

:target: Theme no. 2: Meet the Members!
(You guys! A creative self-portrait, you and your family or just something that represents a hobby, interest or your personality - anything the theme inspires!)

:groups: Closing Date!:
01/09/13, December 1st 18.00 GMT.

:trophy: Prizes!:
Prizes will be announced once all the points and feature spaces have been found. However, for clarity, if you enter and win both themes then you will get a bigger prize than if you win First in either category.

:bulletblue:We will only be offering First and Second place for each theme and one Grand prize position.
:bulletgreen:To qualify for the Grand Prize position you must enter into both themes and then must have both pieces gain the most votes to win.
:bulletyellow:First and Second place as individual categories will be chosen by the founder, co-founder and contributors.

:bookdiva: To Qualify:
1. You must use a camera, digital/analogue (your choice).
2. Your submission must be a good quality image with no blatant unintentional blurring or pixilation.
3. Filters are allowed.
4. Editing is allowed.
5. Digital paintings/manipulations are not allowed. (No superimposing of stock images unless it's your own stock.)
6. It must comply with the group rules:…
7. It must be your own work!!!
7 a. You cannot enter anyone else’s piece as your own, in place of them or for them - I cannot stress this enough. If it becomes apparent that you have entered someone else's work (that's called plagiarism) you will be removed from the group, reported and blacklisted.
8. You must be a member to enter. (Don't fret, we accept everybody so just go to our page and click 'Join our Group'!)

You can enter up to three pieces to each competition, but only the best piece can win and no doubles!

Submit your photos to the appropriate folders: 'Competition - Summer' ->…, 'Competition - Meet the Members' ->…!

[PLEASE!, double-check it's the correct folder before submitting!]

Can't wait to see all your photos!

Good luck!,

Group Info

Hot Shots is all about finding other deviantArt members who have an eye for photography and pooling all of those deviants into one place.

There will be a feature every few months which will show the group the best pieces submitted and, at the end of each season, there will be a featured member with their best pieces!

You can look forward to competitions and more in the weeks and months to come, so do join and show off your work!

There is a maximum 3 submissions a day per deviantArt account.

Rules & Guidelines:
1. Good Quality Photographic Images: Not blurred, pixilated or a tiny file and NO TEXT ON THE IMAGE (unless as a copyright mark) and no .gif files.
2. Absolutely NO plagiarism!!!
3. No Nudity: for the fainthearted more than general prudery.
4. Please be polite to one another.
5. No campaigning on my page about any causes/religions/politics or similar.
6. No Nudes!!!
7. No submissions of animals that are:
- dressed up.
- obviously in bad condition through either neglect or other forms of abuse.
- which are chained up.
- exotic animals which are not in their natural habitats.

***I do not intend to promote idiocy on here!***

8. Break any of the rules and you're out!

These rules are subject to change and additions so, do look back from time to time before you submit!

Please do take a look around, we're still new but should fill up soon enough!
