As always, thank you to everyone for participating in my previous contests, both with entries and feature donations. I'd also like to give a big thank you to those who donated points to help out with the prizes!
Because of placing highly in a poll on the subject and in honor of my (relatively unknown) group #Macro-Photographers, I've decided to make the theme of this contest Macro & Close-up Photography. (I've added "Close-up" in order to include those lacking dedicated macro equipment.)
Winners of my last Macro/Close-up Contest (December 2009)
First place: 3 month subscription from *MichelleRamey + custom journalskin from *MichelleRamey (if desired) + journal/news features
Second place: 1 month subscription from *MichelleRamey + journal/news features
Third place: Journal/news features
Looking for people to feature the winners! If you'd like to, please don't hesitate to comment on this article or note me. The more, the better! You can still enter if you do, of course, and you don't need a subscription to feature people in a news article.
Rules/Thing you need to read
Deadline: November 11th
Number of entries allowed: 1
Picture must have been taken in 2010.
In the description/artist's comment of the picture you enter, please include "Entry for :dev michelleramey:'s (without the space) Macro & Close-up Photography Contest."
It is suggested that you add me to your watch list to keep up with updates or find out if you place/get honorable mention, but it is definitely not a requirement.
To enter, send me a note titled "Photography Contest" with the THUMB to your entry.
If you would like to change your entry at any time throughout the contest, you may certainly do so by sending me a note titled "Entry change" with a THUMB to the current piece that you've entered, and a THUMB to the new piece you'd like to enter.
Good luck to everyone, and I can't wait to see your entries!
