Default TDIFest 2010 Photo Gallery Contest

A fun event for everyone, even if you can't make it to fest.
What is it?
A Photo Gallery/Contest made up of photographs of our beloved cars sent in by our members and voted on by our members.

  • submit an 8x10 MATTED photo of your favorite TDI (VW or Audi) that you've taken (please do not include any people or animals in the photos, JUST the car please).
  • Limit MAXIMUM 2 entries per person
  • Please include a short “title” for each photo, your contact information –name, user name, email or phone number.

**Returning photos: **

Mail in contestants: If you want your photo RETURNED to you please include a separate self addressed envelope (your choice of style) with postage and we will mail it to you after fest. If you do not care to have it returned then we will dispose of it by September 10 -one week after fest is over. If we do not receive the envelope, we will NOT return your photo to you. It get's very expensive to return all the entries separately. Thanks for understanding.

Voting
Photo's will be on display at the Sheraton Airport Hotel in the Mt. St. Helen’s ballroom during the weekend of TDIFest. During check-in, all attendee's of TDIFest will be given a 3x5 index card. Attendee's are allowed 1 vote, to be placed in a ballot box and tallied just before the banquet. In order to vote for a photo, you MUST be an attendee at TDIFest. Photo’s will not be posted on the forum for electronic voting.

The Twist: (and disclaimer)
If you'd like to sell your artwork, you're welcome to do so as a PRIVATE SALE. TDIClub or TDIFest and it’s affiliates are not responsible for the sale transaction of your photo. We will be displaying these photo's at TDIFest for people's viewing and voting on for contest purposes only. TDIClub and TDIFest are not charging an Entry Fee, nor are we accepting any money for the display of these photos. If you'd like to sell your photographic artwork, please send in the matted 8x10 photo, along with a 2x3 index card with the title of the photo, contact information and desired price so that other members may contact you for the sale. If you do not include a price and a member expresses interest in purchasing your photograph, TDIFest staff will only provide your TDIClub screen name for the buyer to contact you, unless it is specified: DO NOT CONTACT on the index card. It is your responsibility to handle the transaction of the sale of your own photo's. TDIFest or it's staff will not be handling the sale of any photos, we will only be responsible for displaying it for the contest.

Winning:
Votes will be tallied manually just before the Sunday Awards Banquet. A first and second place winner will be decided on. The winners will be announced at the banquet and the Grand Prize winner (first place) will be asked to provide an electronic copy of the photograph so that we may post it on the TDIClub home page.


Enter, display, have fun! We’re excited to see what comes up. But please, Keep the photo’s “clean and tasteful.” Remember, it’s a family event.

Weather across the nation has been looking pretty got. that sounds like a good reason to get the car all shined up and photographed.

Should we post some teaser shots of our work??

What a great concept. This is a perfect opportunity for people to show of their cars that are flying into the Fest this year. Hopefully everyone takes advantage of this.

Ideally the car would be physically in the location that you're photographing. Make sure you're not using anyone else's copyright material (ie, photoshopping your car onto someone else's beach photo). and just remember to keep it "clean"

But, in the end... it's all art. let your mind be creative. the members will vote on which they like best.

Some may think you need a high-end camera etc to get the a good 8x10 print. In fact, as long as you camera has the proper controls, and you know how to take a photo, even a cell phone camera can provide a stunning shot!

I agree to this up to a point. There are a few exceptional camera phones out there nowadays that will make a great 8x10, but most are garbage LOL. I'll still bring along my trusty DSLR for contest shots.

I've been driving all around to try and find good backdrops LOL. Sometimes, by the time I get out there, my car is too dirty, or it's too dark... Oh the challenge

so, print it, mat it, send it. cheap mats are available at Walmart and shipping (if done in time via snail mail) should only cost a couple bucks-ish. It's all good in the name of fun!!!

What? My car can fly in to the fest? So why has it been letting me make driving plans when it can fly in?!?
Oh Sure! A the last minute it'd say, "Nah, I changed my mind about driving. I'll fly. You go ahead and spend two weeks on the road, (you moron!)"
