Contest goal:

We all take shots of other people as subjects but very rarely think of ourselves

jawshoewhah: Well so much for anonymity in this contest. ( 5 years and 1651 days ago )
karaflazz: Best contest theme EVER....loli'm gonna vote for EVERY entry just out from curiosity!!!!!!Can't wait to see all of your faces!!!!! ( 5 years and 1650 days ago )
Lamantine: we've got some stunning entries here ! ( 5 years and 1649 days ago )
HeinrichB: Ah darn Im too ugly for this contest! ( 5 years and 1649 days ago )
locksmagic: Heinrich have you seen itsmymoment? Just kidding ( 5 years and 1649 days ago )
HeinrichB: Lmao @locksmagic ah well guess I have nothing to lose.. only some internet embarrassment ( 5 years and 1649 days ago )
locksmagic: So I see Karaflazz has been stalking everone's shots yet we have yet to see him! Come on man, are you camera shy? Get out from behind that thing! ( 5 years and 1647 days ago )
UncleJimmy: UMMM...Hey Adam, I heard that! Thank goodness I don't have to be Model pretty to take photos...I know I could scare the stink off a monkey, but did you have to say it?!? (Tears running down cheek) I'm telling my mommy on you! ( 5 years and 1647 days ago )
jawshoewhah: I guess it also safe to say similar entries are alright as well ( 5 years and 1647 days ago )
arbroono: I wish, this contest could have mandated to show the face, as this would have been a chance to see all of our faces... Moderator can think of announcing as a seprate contest itself.. ( 5 years and 1646 days ago )
adeincyprus: it has been done already.........it will come around again....... ( 5 years and 1646 days ago )
k5683: Arbroono, this actually should be mandated to show the face because if you look at the definition of portrait, it says "A portrait is a painting, photograph, sculpture, or other artistic representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant" ( 5 years and 1646 days ago )
arbroono: oh... I see lot of entries here deviating the definition of portrait given by you... ( 5 years and 1646 days ago )
locksmagic: K6583 has a point but I'm more irritated by the ones that aren't even of the author! and don't get me started on the obvious photoshopping! Have people forgotten how to read? ( 5 years and 1646 days ago )
iquraishi: but the contest gave the liberty of having not only face but whole body.. but I guess a contest should be held of portraits of face only.. ( 5 years and 1646 days ago )
Contest Moderator: if anyone has any problems with entries, please feel free to use the redflag system, that is what it is there for. ( 5 years and 1646 days ago )
EmiK: This is my second day on this really cool site, and I already have to show my face, I'm sorry, lol. ( 5 years and 1646 days ago )
iquraishi: @Emik: lol.. and welcome to the site.. and I hope to share lot of things.. ( 5 years and 1645 days ago )
k5683: the definition of portrait didn't come from my own head, it came from the dictionary. THE DICTIONARY STATES "in which the face and its expression is predominant" ( 5 years and 1645 days ago )
k5683: and yes, iquraishi, you are right when it says that the whole body can be part (as the contest rules suggest) but there are some entries here where there is no face showing at all ( 5 years and 1645 days ago )
giley: I have submitted a photo of me with a vignette but have been told by another member that this is not allowed. Why not? ( 5 years and 1645 days ago )
locksmagic: @ giley, I see you are a new member, welcome! The answer to your question can be found here http://www.pxleyes.com/guidelines/ About half way down are the photo rules, please read them ( 5 years and 1645 days ago )
giley: oops! I will re submit sans vignette. ( 5 years and 1645 days ago )
ziggyx2003: What I find the most interesting about this contest is first people's perceptions of themselves and secondly how they want to be perceived in their entry. It's totally cool for a people watcher like myself. ( 5 years and 1645 days ago )
locksmagic: This contest has brought out a bunch of great entries! Usually it's pretty easy to tell what the top 7 will be, but I've got to say on this one I have no clue! Good luck to everyone ( 5 years and 1644 days ago )
UncleJimmy: @ giley...It's alright, some of us who have been here a while STILL violate the rules and guidelines from time to time and have entries removed, it happens. Welcome to the site and have fun. Listen to the advice, watch the top seven entries every week and be creative. (Welcome to all new artists) And Locks is correct, this one has brought out some real great entries, can't wait to see rthe results! ( 5 years and 1644 days ago )
ziggyx2003: I am sad, so many pictures gone, this was such fun, we were really coming together as a community through this contest and now, its just sad ( 5 years and 1644 days ago )
artist3001: I predict there will be lots of entries with equal percentages. ( 5 years and 1643 days ago )
iquraishi: this is turning a tough contest for the voters.. good luck everybody who is voting.. ( 5 years and 1643 days ago )
