BLIPOINT CONTESTS: Periodically we organise diverse contests, where blipoint members publish their images representing the published subjects. We have a prestigious panel of judges at our disposal made up of professionals from the worlds of photography and graphic arts. There are three types of contests:

Gallery contests: We differ from the rest of the social networks in that we give our members the opportunity to showcase their work in the artistic spaces of avant-garde cities. The winners that participate in this gallery contests section will be able to exhibit their images as a prize. Blipoint carries out all of the organization of the exhibition, its set up, its coverage in different media, and also provides printed material to announce the exhibition. We also film a video and take photos of the inauguration, have a cocktail to open the exhibition, and give a certificate to the winners. In the finished contests section you can see photos and videos of all of the past exhibitions. We give all of those artists in the photography, illustration, and graphic design sectors the opportunity to enter the art world and make their works known.

Online contests: We have the support of manufacturers and companies in the photography and graphic arts worlds, which participate as sponsors of our online contests. All of those members that publish their images participating in the different subjects, and are chosen as winners will receive products from the photography and graphic arts sectors as prizes.

Premium Contests: We have created this prestigious contest section, where the two concepts of gallery and online contests come together. The winners exhibit their images in the art spaces of avant-garde cities; we also publish books with the winning images, and award items from the world of photography as well as cash prizes.

PhotoNocturna: Night images evoke a singular, magical atmosphere, be it a sky lit by the moon and the stars or even a green or red sky. In darkness, you can only see what is illuminated. You can use your basic equipment to take night photos, but certain accessories commonly found in a photography kit – like a tripod – are quite useful. Therefore, we are offering a special prize – one of the latest models by Manfrotto, the best tripod on the market. We invite you to participate, using diverse tools such as photography, digital art, collage, etc. Get inspired and participate!

• First prize: The new compact lightweight Manfrotto tripod for travel photography.

The Blipoint team wishes you luck!

Voting system will take place in 3 stages:

First stage:

• Once the contest has been published in the web, the participants can publish their images that represent the contest’s concept. In this stage, you will only be able to publish images and make comments. No voting will take place.

Second stage:

• The participation period ends. You will not be able to publish any more images in the contest, and the voting period with the new star voting system starts: with this type of voting system, you will only be able to vote once for the image that you like best; the votes cast by users with a complete profile and that are active in Blipoint will have more value; the votes cast by those users that register and immediately vote for the image will have very little value. In this way, the users that have more friends will not end up in first place. The voting will be done by the actual photographers, illustrators, graphic designers, and individuals that are active in the Blipoint community.

Third stage:

• Once the contest has ended, the qualified panel of judges will make the final selection of the winning images.

Traces of Smoke: Smoke is the suspension of small solid particles in the air that results from the incomplete combustion of a combustible.

It doesn’t matter where it comes from – cigarettes, tobacco, incense, machines, bonfires, motors, etc. Everything is valid; it just depends on how you manage to capture these images that allow you to open a new world in your imagination.

Traces of Smoke invites you to show, through images, the beauty and aesthetic richness that can be created by the trajectory of this physical phenomenon.

Publication period: from 01/04/2011 until 20/06/2011 Voting process: from 20/06/2011 until 11/07/2011 Contest closed: 11/07/2011

The authors of the 20 winning images, will have as prize being a Premium User for free one year. For more information regarding the premium gallery: http://blipoint.com/blog/premium-gallery/
