July 4th: Our winning photo plus the next challenge
Hi, everyone. Photo Challenge guru Scott Kleinberg here. Photo Challenge (theme: July 4) has come to an end. From fireworks to patriotism to celebrations - we had a little of everything. 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 "Summer."
Explanation: Sometimes, it's fun to do a very specific topic to keep you challenged. And sometimes, it's just fun to see your ideas when it comes to something broad like summer. I'm excited to see what you come up with. My usual advice is always the same because it's useful - be creative and have fun.
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.
