Personal thoughts / reminders:
- based on the rules, this contest is strict with entry submissions. Read through the guidelines before submitting your entry.
- you can submit multiple entries but take note: ONLY 1 ENTRY per category.
- your entry can be digitally manipulated, meaning, there is no limit to using digital art techniques and effects.
- although Rebisco wants us contestants to be creative with our artwork, 70% of the total weight will come from FB likes. This kind of trend for me detracts real digital artists with talent because not all with talent will have the chance to rally a multitude of votes. Still, there is that 30% control from Rebisco who will decide the overall winners. There is also that tendency for non-winning contestants (or their supporters) who will get a lot of votes to protest (troll, sourgrape, complain, etc.) if someone with talent wins without the votes to back him/her up.
- deadline is on 11:59 PM of December 31, 2010.

For complete guidelines and to inquire about this contest, head over to the 7 dark Temptations Facebook Page.

Submitted my Photomarathon video entry, and collected a prize...

I took a half-day off just to pick up some prizes I have won recently. One of them was an iPod nano courtesy of the Fact-or-Fake Mentos video contest from Perfetti Van Melle Philippines.

I planned to claim more of my other prizes today unfortunately I was not able to due to the heavy traffic. Maybe some other time (or I'll ask someone else to claim). Plus I had to prioritize my video entry submission for the Canon Photomarathon 2010.

The deadline of the Photomarathon video category submission was today 4 p.m. I hope my entry stands a chance against other contenders for this contest because I only used an older camera model to shoot my video.

Canon camera model: Canon Powershot A85

Check out my video entry below...

After that, I went to Ortigas to claim my winnings for the Fact-or-Fake video contest which was recently concluded. What I received was a green iPod nano 5th generation.

Thanks to Perfetti Van Melle Philippines for awarding this prize to me.

I dedicate my prize to my girlfriend for helping me out with some of the contests I joined. She even helped me out here for my Canon Photomarathon entry and the Mentos Fact-or-Fake video entry. It's already with her now, hope she makes the most out of it... :)

Hopefully, I could still win in more contests while learning more stuff along the way.

The journey continues...

What are you waiting for? Start joining the Captured On Candid Camera online contest now!

General Mechanics

1. Each participant must have an authentic Facebook account and be a fan of HWM Philippines’ fan page.

2. Each participant must upload one (1) photo as his/her contest entry on HWM Philippines’ fan page Wall.

3. Aside from uploading their entry on the fan page’s Wall, each participant must send us an email notification to editor.ph@hwzcorp.com containing the following details:

Subject: Captured On Candid Camera
Full name:
Contact Number:
Link of the photo:

4. The participant must be part of the candid photo, showing his/her face, to help us in verifying the authenticity of the entry.

Personal Notes:
- it seems that HWM's photo contests are rather fair when it comes to online voting which is only 10% 0f the criteria. Based on the winner of HWM's Messy Desk photo contest, concluded recently, the winner was chosen based on the best interpretation of theme and composition even if there were other entries getting a huge number of "likes".
- I think you will have a better chance of winning if the photo you submitted is older because that would really say that you never prepared for this kind of contest, which makes it candid.
- upload your photo entry on HWM's wall but don't forget to e-mail the link of your entry to their editor as well. (See rule #3)
- deadline of entries on December 15, 2010.

Winner's Place Bloggers Meet at Wendy's Bonifacio Avenue

I just arrived from Jayson Biadog's Winner's Place Bloggers Meet held at Wendy's Bonifacio Avenue corner EDSA. I was not able to arrive on time due to heavy traffic and a hectic schedule, but I am glad I made it before the event finally ended.

Unfortunately I was not able to bring my camera for that event. Instead I took photos of what I did receive courtesy of Jayson Biadog and friends.

Stuff I received a while back...

plaque of appreication courtesy of Winner's Place

My prize from winning the Winner's Place blog contest - The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks

My prize from Damicaye - 2 Tickets to NIDO Science Discovery center plus gift items courtesy of Sir Darwin Cayetano

Very special thanks to Sir Jayson Biadog for awarding me a plaque of appreciation and the contest prize - The Last Song authored by Nicholas Sparks, and also to Sir Darwin Cayetano of damicaye.blogspot.com for awarding me 2 tickets to the Nido Fortified Science Center and other souvenir items.

It was nice being able to meet personally for the first time some of the bloggers who's contests I joined. This was the first time I met Sir Richard Mamuyac of Mapanghingi Ka Ba, Freebies for Every Juan (where I won 1st place in his online photo contest), and Sir Darwin of Damicaye (where I won the tickets to the Science Discovery Center).

What was interesting about this gathering of bloggers is that most (if not all) either blog about contests or frequently join contests. In short, this was a meeting of the Contest Community.

During the meet, I remember being asked about my motivation in joining contests, and I think I answered about the prize being the prime motivator. But as I type on my laptop right now, on second thought... I forgot to mention that I also join contests as part of my learning process.

Speaking of learning, I really wanted to learn a lot of cool things like how to make good video presentations, make digital art, photography, blogging, etc. Through the contests I have joined, I was able to learn a lot / sharpened my skills to improve my chances of winning. I remember that 2 years ago, I had no idea what blogging was until I joined this blog contest from Animax. The prize was a netbook, and I badly wanted to win it. This motivated me from learning the basics of blogging.

Funny, but my opponents were mostly kids - grade school to college level I think (although the contest does not have restrictions on age). And since this contest was international, most of these contest bloggers had really 'creative' ways that made their entries stand out.

Although I did not win this contest, it made me realize what Ryoma (Prince of Tennis) often says - that I am still mada mada dane (not quite ready yet). And this motivated me to improve my blogging skills and learn some more. From there, Journey of No FERA was born.

By the way, if there is a someone who inspires me to join contests - whether blogging, photography, video, etc., it's no other than my girlfriend who always supports me specially when i need her help the most. As i mentioned in my previous posts, she is the lucky charm of my life...

Again, special thanks to Jayson Biadog for this opportunity to meet some of the most prominent people in the Contest Community today, and to Wendy's Bonifacio Avenue for accommodating us bloggers for this event. May we, the Contest Community thrive and strive to be the best in what we do. This is what I believe Winner's Place is all about.

I participated in the Canon Photomarathon 2010

This is the first time I participated in the Canon Photomarathon 2010 - Manila Leg which was held at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia Pasay City last November 6, 2010.

Since this was the first time I participated, I would like to share my experience in this on-the-spot photo contest.

I already knew about this contest last year but was not able to participate because I found out too late that there were limited slots for online registration. (around 500 I think...) But even though I was not able to register in advance, there is still that option to wait for vacant slots on the day of the event. Still, I'd rather make sure I get a slot so, I just opted to join this year.

Now on it's 5th year, the Canon Photomarathon is an annual event held around October or November for avid amateur and professional photographers alike.

This contest is open to all Canon camera users nationwide. For this year, there are separate events for Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. You will have to pre-register online (or take chances for open slots on the day of the event) before you can participate.

The themes of this contest was announced on the day of the event. There were 3 rounds with corresponding themes. For each round, the contestant photographer will be given 2 hours to go around and shoot their entry and return to the starting point (the SMX convention center) to download their images for submission. Another 30 minutes was allotted for contestants to finish downloading their entries.

From the two hours allotted time, the photographer can go practically anywhere to take their photos, but have to make sure they return before the time is up so that their entry will count.

Also, there are three categories for this competition. There is...
1) for point-and-shoot
3) video category

I noticed that there are a lot of registrants bringing their DSLRs for the competition. But what is striking to me is that a contestant can only compete in only one category. Meaning, if a contestant wishes to compete in a point-and-shoot category, they cannot compete in the DSLR category or video category. They also cannot switch categories between rounds. Funny, but since most brought their DSLRs to the competition, it probably meant that fewer contestants are willing to compete in the point-and-shoot category.

Here are some of my photos of the Canon Photomarathon 2010.

Some freebies given away on the event like free coffee and mouthwash...

a short program before the event...

a big projector screen shows the countdown before the contest round officially closes.

I am participating in the video category, which means I opted not to submit any photo entries in the DSLR or point-and-shoot category. All I have to do is make an MTV presentation of the Canon Photomarathon 2010. Unlike the other two categories, the deadline is one week after the event. I know it isn't easy making an MTV so wish me luck on this one... :)

If you want to try your luck on this prestigious contest, you will have to wait until next year (around October or November) to join. The Canon Philippines Facebook page may announce contest schedules so that you won't miss the chance to be the first 500 to register online.
