[WINNER ANNOUNCED] | The THIRD IFC Spotting Competition

CURRENT STATUS: WINNER ANNOUNCED!

Due to popular demand, the photo competition is back. This time around, priority will be given to those to HAVE NOT participated in one of these before.

Like before, there are sixteen total spots open. Rounds are single-elimination, and matchups are randomized each round. There will be no bracket. You will be going mostly blind into your rounds.

There are a few simple guidelines when entering this competition:

  • Past Participation - For the first day after this thread is posted, no one who has competed in a photo competition on IFC before will be allowed to join. I will deny your submission. After a one-day period, if the competition is not yet full, I will open it up to everyone.

  • Photo Quality - I’ll try my best to avoid denying anyone from the competition, but please keep your photos to an “acceptable” quality. If you have a phone, be careful how much you’re cropping. If you submit a contrail picture that’s cropped to like two pixels you will not be allowed to enter.

  • Voting - The contestants will know who they are facing. The voters will not know who took the pictures, to reduce bias. Voting lasts for one day, and votes will be closed after and results displayed. Contestants can vote for themselves. This goes without saying, but do not promote yourself on any platform.

  • Photo Categories - I’m loosening this requirement slightly. Everyone who enters should have at least one photo in every category, but in the rare case you don’t, submit something as close as possible (for example, if you don’t have a heavy, submit a 757). Do not abuse this rule. The categories are as follows:

Round 1 Round 2 Round 3 Round 4
Any Single-Aisle Aircraft Heavy Any

To enter, simply DM me an image

Good luck to everyone and have fun!
