New Contest The world of colors

The world is full of abundant colors. For this competion, announced together with Datacolor for the photokina 2014, we are looking for photographs primarily accentuating colors. We are not limited on certain motifs, wether colorful landscapes, buildings, plants, animals or persons, submit your best, most creative and most colorful shot. We are excited to see what you will show us.

Contest specific characteristics
This is an international contest, conducted simultaneously in all language regions of fotocommunity.

Please note:
Members with a World Membership may, like the other participants, submit a total of two images only. This is only one comprehensive contest, even if it is also advertised in the other language regions of fotocommunity. This time after the first phase, the user voting, the first winners will be drawn. In each language region three photographs with the highest score each win a valuable prize.

But that’s not all. The 35 highest rated photographs (15 out of fotocommunity.de and 5 each from the other participating language regions) are evaluated offline by an expert jury. The three images with the highest score will be chosen as the overall winners. They win more valuable prizes and tickets for photokina.
