SL10BCC: Photo contest

The Community Celebration team is thrilled to announce its first photo contest in celebration of Second Life’s 10th anniversary.


What better way to start getting people thinking about and involved in the forthcoming celebrations to mark Second Life’s tenth year of public access than through a photo contest?

We want you to submit a photo which encapsulates all or part of this year’s celebratory theme: Looking Forward, Looking Back. The subject matter is entirely your choice – as long as it’s not of any part of the celebration regions themselves; we hope to have a further competition for that later! Instead, we want you to explore the grid (or your inventories!) and find the perfect picture which fits our theme.

Up to two entries can be submitted per avatar name, and there are two categories for entries:

  • Category A is for photos taken using only the tools available within the viewer (the snapshot floater, windlight settings, the debug and preferences options for images, etc.)
  • Category B is for photos which have been processed outside of the viewer using tools such as PhotoShop, GIMP, PaintShop Pro and so on.
