It is time for another plane spotting photograph contest! This contest, hosted by myself and @AndrewWu, will be in a bracket layout, consisting of 16 entrants in the first round, with half of the remaining entrants being eliminated in every following rounds. That means there will be a total 4 rounds.
What are the photo guidelines?
Please only enter your highest-quality shots. Phone pictures are allowed, but keep in my mind they typically are considerably lower quality pictures than one taken with a DSLR.
Every round, we will have a different category, such as: business jets , heavy aircraft , cargo , etc.
If you enter the contest but do not have a photo that fits the category, please upload the closest to the category that you have. Entries that are not close to the category outlines are subject to disqualification.
Here is the category outline:
|Round 1||Round 2||Round 3||Round 4|
|Open||Cargo Aircraft||Biz Jets/GA||Heavy Aircraft|
How long will voting take?
Once the 16 entries are filled, we will begin voting. A random bracket will be created for the baseline. Voting periods will be open for 24 hours, and will take place in this thread.
Any other rules?
Do not try and get support for your photos through external sources (Instagram, Slack, etc.). You will be disqualified for this.
You may vote for your own photo during voting.
When you are voting, please take into consideration all aspects of the photo (content, aesthetics, quality, editing, etc.). Do not just focus on one aspect, but instead take all of them in account before you vote.
Photos being voted on will be anonymous, to promote fairness. Entrants will be notified of who they are competing against, but are asked not to share with the voting public
No repeats please!
For the first round, there is no category! Enter anything and everything that is a plane, helicopter, balloon, basically anything that fits under the aviation category. Keep in mind that future rounds will have a specific category.
The contest is now full! Thanks for entering!
Good luck to all of you!!
