Fearless members, we are excited to receive your images to compile another Collection of exceptional wedding photography!

Fearless Awards are awarded to a limited number of photographs that our guest curators deem remarkable in their originality of concept or technical or artistic execution. In short, to the best of their abilities, the curators will select images that represent our community’s best work.

COLLECTION 50: CURRENT RULES

RULES OF ELIGIBILITY:

The Admin (Huy Nguyen) shall have the final decision on whether the entries meet the Rules of Eligibility.

– Your entry must be from the wedding day and events associated with the wedding, day-after photo sessions, bridal photo sessions, pre-wedding photo sessions, engagement photo sessions, vow renewals, and civil unions only.

– Your entry can be from any year.

– You can enter photos that you entered in previous Collections as long as they are not already Fearless Awards.

YOUR PHOTO MAY NOT BE AWARDED IF:

– it is not the correct size. The correct sizes are 1200×800 pixels, 1200×800 pixels, 1200×1200 pixels. There is a +/- 1 pixel tolerance so 1201 or 1199 or 799 or 801 is acceptable, etc…
– it has the wrong filename
– it has more than 10% of the image area cloned out
– it has people or stuff added through digital manipulation
– it is a multiple exposure of 2 or more photos made in camera or in post-production
– it has added logo, added text, or borders
– it was taken from a styled session, modeling session for a third party, commercial session, or editorial session.
– it is of strangers who are not your clients or part of your events
– it is a posed “boudoir” portrait image as defined by WPPI: “Portraits that celebrate the beauty of the human (male and female) form… usually including nudes, semi-nudes, subjects in lingerie.”
– it is too similar to one of your previous Fearless Awards. Entries may be deemed similar if they are photos from same situation OR photos from – different situations that are similar in composition, technique, or moment.
– it depicts a sexual act or shows genitals
– it depicts hurtful or cruel behavior towards humans or animals
– it depicts urination or defecation by humans or animals
– it is an “upskirt photo” taken from an angle so as to see up a person’s skirt or dress or kilt
– it uses a printed page (from book, magazine, etc) or another photograph as a part of your photograph

CURATORS CAN DECIDE:

The curation process has been developed to ensure that the rules are applied fairly. We also believe having a new group of curators for each round of awards helps bring different perspectives to the selection process. There are some instances where the curators will be asked to evaluate the images on a case by case basis: weapons, juvenile or bathroom humour, partial nudity, and offensive actions. Curators will make the final decision whether the image is Awarded in those instances.

COLLECTION 50: PREPARING YOUR ENTRIES

– Each member can enter up to 8 entries for free plus up to 8 additional entries at $5 per entry = 16 maximum entries.

– Your entries must be JPG or PNG photographs

– There are only 3 sizes allowed. Entries that are not the correct size may be disqualified by the Admin.  Allowed sizes are:

1200 pixels X 800 pixels
800 pixels X 1200 pixels
1200 X 1200 pixels

– Entries must be named with a unique name made up of 2 distinctive words. They must be connected with no spaces between them. Example: speedyhorse-01.jpg, speedyhorse-02.jpg, …speedyhorse-10.jpg, OR runningchicken, talktome, catsybatsy….

– Do not use these words in your unique names: image, photo, fearless, winner, round, wedding, collection, boda

COLLECTION 50: SENDING YOUR ENTRIES

– Put all your photos in the same folder.

– Use the Entry Form to send your entries. Entries received after Tuesday July 9 will be charged a Procrastination Fee of $10 USD per form.

– Entries will not be accepted after July 14.

– Each member may use the entry form only once per Collection. Do not send in 2 forms. (If you do that, it will confuse me and mess up your entries)

– If you made a mistake with your form or if you have any questions about your entries, email fearlessphotographers@gmail.com

COLLECTION 50: AWARDS PROCESS

All entries (usually about 10,000) from the entry forms are downloaded by the Admin and divided into 3 groups of images.

Your images will be divided equally and randomly into 3 groups. For example, if you send in 16 images: 5 will go to Group A and 5 to Group B and 6 to Group C.

Each group of images will be reviewed by 2 curators independently. There are a total of 6 curators for 3 groups of photos.

The curators for Collection 50 will be announced later.

(Of course the curators and their studio mates are NOT allowed to enter their own photos in this Collection)

Each curator will select the images that they think are “good” images. These images are called “Finalists”

Then, all 6 curators will score ALL the Finalist images and score each one 3,2,1, or 0 points. There may be more than one round of scoring.

The Finalists with the most points will be awarded Fearless Awards or Honorable Mentions if they get enough points needed and they meet the rules of eligibility

About 1-3% of all entries will be Fearless Awards.
