Wednesday, July 27, 2011 Hi, everyone. Photo Challenge guru Scott Kleinberg here. Photo Challenge (theme:Hot) has come to an end. Hot stuff, y'all! Fire, weather, ice and much more. Great job, tough decision. As you may know, taking the top spot comes with some prizes: 1. In conjunction with the Digital Photo Academy, the winner will have the opportunity to attend a workshop in Chicago! The workshops are for people of all levels. You can learn more about the Digital Photo Academy and the workshops at this link. 2. Your photo featured in our gallery on RedEye's website (along with some editor's comments about why your photo was so special). 3. This week, your photo will appear on Page 2 in Thursday's RedEye. Read below the photos for all the details on next week's challenge. Thanks so much to everyone that participated! We start with the honorable mentions, then go to the five finalists and save the best for last - the winner. Next week's contest Your assignment: Shoot photographs with the theme "Eating." Explanation: We do it all the time, but sometimes food is art. Whatever you think of when I say eating is what I want to see. Remember my advice that always rings true in this situation: Be creative and have fun. While I can't promise your photo will make the cut, you can't go wrong if you remember the keys to the contest. Upon completion: Email the photograph into firstname.lastname@example.org with "redeyephoto" in the subject line. ***NOTE: Because I get so many photos, you must include the word redeyephoto in the subject line otherwise I can't guarantee I'll see your entry. Please include your name, your age, your neighborhood, location of the photograph and caption information.*** Firm Deadline: Noon Central Time every Wednesday. The dossier: We want to capture the best images Chicagoans have to offer. Every week we will have a new theme, and RedEye will select the best photograph to run in the paper.
