Stock Photo Contest
Round 1: Icons


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With the revival of the contest section going fairly well, I thought what we needed is a greater variety of contests. I love all things LotR and the like [..okay, so that's a fairly obvious statement] but I think to get the contest section back to what it was, we need different themed contests as well. That's started to happen now, so hopefully this should appeal to some people :P

So, this contest is a reinvention/revival of Ammy's contest. I loved it, although I never joined, so I think it's a good idea to revive it. So I'm going to base the layout etc on the original.

I'm going to do my best to honour it/make this one as good as that was [*gulp* note the do my best part of that ;) ] so yeah. Here goes.

Stock Image Sites:
http://www.sxc.hu/
http://www.everystockphoto.com/
http://www.morguefile.com/
http://www.imageafter.com/index.php
http://www.photogen.com/
http://www.freedigitalphotos.net/

^I haven't used all of these, but they seem to be quite good. I would recommend stock.xchng personally.

Instructions:
--Using your stock site of choice, select between three and seven photos that fit into a certain theme. That could be colours, a word, a specific item.
--Your stock images must fit in with the theme. The icons themselves don't need to adhere to the same colouring/structure this time round, but the images do.
--If possible, link to your site of choice and credit the original photographer.
--Give a note of your theme as you post your entry, and enjoy!

Example Icons:
Theme - Ladybirds

Image Image Image

Rules:
--Make no less than three icons, and no more than seven.
--Icons should be 100x100 px.
--You can use whatever textures/brushes/text you want, but one photo per icon in this round please.
--Post the image(s) as well as the URL please.
--Entries due: Thursday, 4th August.* Tuesday, 23rd August. ?

*I'm moving at the start of August, and so the voting probably won't be up straight away. Because of this, it's a very loose deadline. If I haven't posted that it's closed, feel free to join until I do :D

Entrants:
Magnificent Smaug
DamsonRhee
Turwaithiel Rochben
Darkheart
Lembas
Legolas

[bold] = entry in
[regular] = entry not in

Any questions, just ask. Any suggestions for future rounds, suggest away. :happy:

There is literally no way I'll have an entry in any time in the next two weeks, so please don't wait up for me. If it's still open after that, I might try and make something, but for the time being I'm going to withdraw. :)

Other entries look gorgeous, by the way. I'll probably vote, but it's going to be hard. :P
