Were winning photos posted in current issue? Did't see it.

I appreciate wanting to respect TEDs intellectual credo through audience curation. Hopefully the organizers will not conscious or subconsciously select those who have the same social and educational background as themselves.
If being egalitarian is a facet of TED philosophy then a portion of audience slots will be open to those without "connections" and at a discounted price.
The current admission structure is out of touch and elitist. Why bother having an event if its just the same clique talking to each other? That accomplishes nothing and is antithetical to TEDs mission to inform all not a select few.
I'm holding out for TEDxFollyBeach.
Wouldn't ya know, I see this at 5:50pm on March 1!
@ Rufus Jones. Go to the entry page, click on amateur/student or pro depending on what you are, then click on "photo contest". Where it says title type in the names of all the files you are entering. Then check the two boxes that you read the fine print. Scroll down and use the photo upload section to upload your pictures.
I guess y'all didn't know he'd be there until 20 minutes before he was finished? I'm sure the Hipsters from Upper King would have flocked. Good article. Galaga Champ would be more impressive. Joust was....never that fun or popular. But a nice read.
The next time somebody complains about me complaining about shit and says "don't you have a real job?" I'm just going to tell them that I do what this guy does.
"Photographer, artist and capitalist are in no way mutually exclusive.
Not so, the emperor who commissioned it."
Funny, you didn't mention state sponsorship of the arts. Are you subtly stating that you are for state sponsorship of the arts? Wow! That's very socialist of you, IP! Congrats.
"With seven international awards to my credit, I think not !"
Want a cookie?
Oh, and none of those seven international awards could be for your website, could they? The one with the blank "about" page?
Worst contest! You actually want photographers to pay to enter a photo. With seven international awards to my credit, I think not ! You should be happy to share the works of local photographers with your readers, AT NO COST ! From reading the other most, this does not seem to be very well organized.
Some one must've found instructions I didn't. Please share. Each time I try to enter the contest on line, site sends me back to page asking choice of "amateur or pro". Are photos to be entered as an attachment to an email, on a disc or what? Is there a form? Please share any info. Thanks. email@example.com
I have submitted my four, feeling a little nervous as this is my first photo comp
The photos we use for promotion are always winners from the most recent contest. Hope that helps. Thanks, Sam
Dustin above has a question that I wish to know as well...specifically the length of time you all would be using or holding the image for advertising/promotions etc. Just curious.
Photographer, artist and capitalist are in no way mutually exclusive.
Some of the greatest classical masterpieces were done because they were "commissioned" by wealthy patrons. People remember Mozart for his work composing music. Not so, the emperor who commissioned it.
Cut the working photographers some slack for wanting to protect their creations.
2 computers and 3 ISP's later I have mine entered.
I guess the moral of this thread is photographers are pretentious anal-retentive assholes.
What use of the images will the City Paper request of our submitted images. There is no fine print on usage rights or length of time the paper will hold/use them or for what. This is important for many photographers who rely on their images to feed their families.
Participants and winners retain copyright to their photos, but grant permission to the City Paper to use them in print and online. (Ex., as in the case of the photos used in this post, in print ad promotions in this month's CPs, and in the actual Photo Contest issue in March.) If you have any questions about this, feel free to email me.
