Waterfront Photo Contest
1. CONTEST DESCRIPTION
The intention of the Port Hawkesbury Waterfront Advisory Committee Photo Contest is to showcase the unique aspects of our waterfront and expand on the current library of photographs that the waterfront will use for promotion. The waterfront area is the area of Granville Street between Reeves Street to Highway 4A, to the Port Hawkesbury Waterfront.
2. HOW TO ENTER THE CONTEST
Take an original still photo that showcases the Port Hawkesbury waterfront. Submit it to : [email protected]. Once a photo is submitted to the Contest, it is considered a final submission and may not be modified, edited, or replaced. A Photo Submission must be an original photograph (in digital format) taken by the photographer. Submissions require permission to be published if they are of a person/people. Submissions become the property of the Town of Port Hawkesbury.
a) Photo Submissions
All photos must be submitted in digital format, as a jpeg file. They must be at least 1600 pixels wide for a horizontal image or 1600 pixels tall for a vertical image, and no larger than 4MB (4,000 KB). All submissions must include the name, mailing address, phone number, and e-mail address of the photographer.
b) Retouching of Photos
The submitted contest photograph cannot be significantly retouched; nothing in the photographs (people, animals, scenery, objects, etc.) may be altered, removed, augmented or rearranged. If the contest photograph has been retouched as stated above, it will be immediately disqualified. Cropping of the original image is permitted, as are modest tonal or colour corrections.
3. CONTEST REQUIREMENTS
Photo Submissions must not contain obscenity, explicit sexual material, nudity, profanity, graphic violence, or calls or incitement to violence. Submissions also must not contain content or images that could be considered abusive, inflammatory, denigrating, or disrespectful to the Town of Port Hawkesbury, or to groups, individuals or institutions.
Photo Submissions must be original photos created by the Contestant and must not contain any elements that are protected by someone else’s copyright or otherwise subject to third party proprietary rights, including privacy and publicity rights (except as expressly permitted below).
By submitting a photo to the Contest, the Contestant affirms that he or she has obtained written consent from all individuals whose image or likeness appears in the photo, and further affirms that he or she is prepared to provide reliable documentation to that effect upon request (or from the individuals’ parent/legal guardian if any such individuals are considered a minor in their country of residence). Submissions become the property of the Town of Port Hawkesbury and some will be selected to be included in a waterfront calendar which will be sold as a fundraiser for a pirate ship playground structure. All submissions require written permission to be published.
A panel of judges will evaluate the submissions and chose a winner for each category. All photos will be screened by the Port Hawkesbury Waterfront Advisory Committee to ensure compliance with these official contest rules.
The Contest closes at 4 p.m. on August 28, 2020. Entries must be received by the contest closing date.
