Winning entry, with a score of:
Contest goal:

The goal is to promote Pxleyes in the most positive way you can. You must integrate the PXL logo in your shot; how you do this is up to you: FI it can be a flag, a tattoo or a 3D object (made out of wood or so).

The ultimate goal is to turn your photo into a mock advertising in the next issue of PXL's own magazine "The EYE". Herefore we also want you to make a text suggestion in the description, this is not required though. If not we will come up with something.

The top entries will be posted in the next issue of our magazine (which will be released in July) and will be changed into mock advertizings. Requirements: aspect ratio of your entry: 8.5 x 11 and it has to be shot / cropped in portrait, meaning 11 high and 8.5 wide. Make sure the ratio of your entry is correct (meaning 8.5 x 11; this equals US letter size ratio with a small bleed). Please post the largest high res as you can.
Have fun and good luck!

Status: finished. Check out the winners below!

rbsgrl: Dumb question from a very inexperienced so-called photographer. What is DPI? Thx! ( 5 years and 2485 days ago )
ibmaxed: Dots per inch rbsgrl. Most web stuff is 72 dpi for print etc you need 300 dpi or high res as it is termed. ( 5 years and 2485 days ago )
Ory: Hrm, My camera, Nikon D70 is only 6mp (3000x2000 pixels) Does this mean my shots will not be large enough to qualify? ( 5 years and 2484 days ago )
robvdn: @Ory: I changed the description a bit meaning everyone can enter now, just keep the aspect ratio in mind. ( 5 years and 2484 days ago )
Ory: Thanks Rob ( 5 years and 2484 days ago )
rbsgrl: Thx ibmaxed! ( 5 years and 2484 days ago )
rbsgrl: Another question: the theme says to use the PXL logo. Is that the icon in the to left of each page that is to be used or just the letters PXL that are to be used? ( 5 years and 2480 days ago )
Contest Moderator: Rbsgrl, the icon in the upper left hand corner of the website is indeed the pxleyes logo. You should try to emulate that as closely as possible but as long as the letters "pxl" are clearly visible it will be considered on topic. ( 5 years and 2479 days ago )
rbsgrl: Thank you Mod! ( 5 years and 2479 days ago )

This entry made me almost loose my mind. In case anyone wonders, how it was done, it's pretty simple: I opened the PXL logo on my computer screen and mirrored it. The harder part was to hold the camera without a tripod in the tiny little right angle, so I get the whole reflection on it, without any letters missing. I took around 1000 pictures, to get in the end 3 shots that were halfway acceptable.
I know, that this one could have been better too, but I am happy with it anyway. Mainly just because I didn't give up after the first 500 ;) (5 years and 2477 days ago)
