MGF Register Photo Competition 2017

Postby TimM » Tue Oct 10, 2017 9:33 pm

It's October and that means it is time to launch the MGF Register Photo Competition for 2017.

The rules are pretty simple - submit up to three of your best pics from the last 12 months that contain something to do with an MGF or TF - might be a bit of the car or a full picture of it or a group shot - anything really as long as there is an F/TF in it. They need to be in reasonable quality as well (over 1mb) as if they win they will be printed A4 size on the calendar, in FasTForward and possibly Safety Fast.

We don't like outlandish photo-shopped stuff so no garish colours or tone changes that we need to put our sunglasses on for and no whimsical layers of cars in outer space or up a mountain - if you do send them in then I'm sure we'll have a good laugh at them but they won't be counted! People will be hanging the calendar on their walls so bear that in mind when submitting your entries. To fit in the calendar we will be looking for pictures preferably in a Landscape format.

By entering you agree for your pictures to be published on MG Car Club and MGF Register websites, social media and publications. You will still retain copyright on your picture.

Photos must be taken by the entrant or have agreement of a named photographer (who will be entrant) if a third party has photographed your car and you must have copyright of the picture.

Cropping, tone adjustment, white balance etc is fine and is encouraged to improve the overall appearance of your picture.

The top 12 in the opinion of our team of judges and after our overcomplicated scoring system has been totalled will feature in the calendar and the overall points winner will win the coveted MGF Register Photographic cup for a year. Your name will join those of past winners on the base. In the event of a points tie then a senior judge will choose the winner.

Hint: Our judges will be looking at overall compostion

All the pictures will be on public view in an online gallery which can be viewed here 2017 Photo Comp

So last thing - the closing date is midnight on Tuesday 14th November so you've got a few weeks to sort out your cherished masterpieces and send them to me at tim.morris@mgfregister.org

Hint: Judges will be looking for the overall composition of the photograph so backgrounds, positioning of the car etc are all as important (if not more important!) as the car itself

Good Luck!

2017 Photo Competition Album

Have yous emailed yours yet?

Tips:
A good background and foreground is just as important as the car itself - judges will looking for overall composition.
Seasonal pictures could be an advantage as the winning 12 will be featured in a calendar.
