For the first time, I have won something on the Internet for Photography.. Although I only got a Consolation Prize, the feeling is still good.
The competition is organized by Scuba Symphony, via Facebook, the “Scuba Symphony Facebook Underwater Photo Contest- September 2011” with the theme ‘Clown Fish’.
There is a total of 6 entries, 1 got the 1st prize while the other 4 got the consolation prize.. I know.. almost everyone got a prize.. but the feeling is still good.
I just sent the organizers the High Resolution photo for verification. I wonder what is the consolation prize..
For this photography competition, participants post their photograph on the facebook page, make a donation to “Project Aware” (any sum will do) and the photograph with the most “LIKES” will win.
There is one participant which went out of their way to publish a touching story on why she wants to win this competition, which generated a lot of “LIKES”.. i’m not complaining, because her photograph is really nice.
But there is another participant which actually cheated by creating lots of “FAKE” accounts just to “LIKE” his photograph, and to win the competition. He succeeded in winning.. It is sad the organizer didn’t look into the issue of the cheating.. However, the organizer did comment saying from next month’s competition onwards, they will be the ones to judge the photographs and not through “LIKES”.
Alright, having said that, this is the photograph I entered into the competition.
Next, Davide Lopresti’s entry.. Personally, my favourite. I seriously think this is the best photo among all participants..
Next, Steven Sim. The photo is rather good as well..
