Well done, all of you!

Welcome to the Nationalities Photography Contest! As we all know, Elftown is a worldwide community, with people of every imaginable country and culture represented somehow. This contest aims to celebrate that by giving people a chance to highlight aspects of the nationality they associate themselves with. Think of it as an opportunity to show your pride! ;)

<img6*6:> Theme: <img6*6:>

Submit pictures that you feel really capture a unique aspect of your country or culture.

What we want: It doesn't just have to be a national symbol, although that's certainly an option... Something illustrating heritage, an odd quirk particular to where you live; be imaginative!
What we don't want: Pictures of subjects that have little or nothing to do with your nationality. This one is a no-brainer :P

<img6*6:> Rules: <img6*6:>

1. Be sure your entries follow the Uploading Art Rules! Your own work only, or face the consequences. Which will not be pleasant. We shouldn't have to say this; you ought to know it by now.
2. Each member may submit up to two entries.
3. No photomanipulations this time. :)
4. Follow the theme, for goodness' sake. No random prettiness, not without reasons! If your entry has some symbolic value and the theme is not immediately obvious, a short explanation of why it fits wouldn't hurt.
5. Nothing violent or pornographic, please, although we'd be worried if you thought that was a good way to represent your country or culture to the world.
6. Have fun! :D

<img6*6:> Judging: <img6*6:>

One entry will be selected as Judges' Favourite. A poll will then be set up to determine three other winners (the same entry cannot win more than once.) Four unique badges will be awarded for these, and a general participant's badge will also be made available once the poll is closed.

** Deadline: Ten entries **

2006-07-13 [Fizban]: when they arent in the correct income tax bracket...even if they are change averse. I just assume they don't understand the full implications of bush's policies on helping those who don't need help, in lieu of the helping hand to those who can barely speaking ofcourse. I am about to loose cable tv-internet in my home when oil bills start coming, because the govt sucks when returning my moms money, she would prolly get nothing if she didnt have three children,...and because they are money mongering fools who love to jack up the oil prices whenever they think they can get it over the heads of the americans to do so.

2006-07-13 [sequeena_rae]: Can we not get off topic here please? This might offend some people =/

2006-07-13 [Charybdis]: Yes; we appreciate your thoughts, Fizban, but this may not be the place for them :) // I have no idea about how the Paranormal contest is coming along, since I didn't have anything to do with it, but we'll probably have a poll soon :p

2006-07-14 [Fizban]: Sorry...I get a little carried away sometimes...>_< loyl...

2006-07-15 [sequeena_rae]: There's a poll for the paranormal contest now, so it shouldn't be too long before the winners are announced :) *didn't see that comment*

2006-07-18 [ArchRose]: I have a question about the theme....

2006-07-18 [Stephen]: What's the question? XD

2006-08-13 [Charybdis]: A note to people who're wondering why winners haven't been announced yet: I'm waiting until there are three winners in the poll. We have a five-way tie for second place right now xP
