Event Description

We had such fun doing a photo contests, we've decided to do it again this December! The contest is about capturing the spirit of NeoVictoria's roleplay for a 2015 calendar. The only criteria are:

1. Image is related to our storyworld in some way; it's fine to use avatar characters and props or to only shoot landscapes. If you're unfamiliar with the Neo'verse, please visit our public website at http://www.neovictoria.net or our new WordPress site at http://neovictoria.tv.

2. Using photo-enhancing software like Photoshop or GIMP is permitted; please don't add any words or borders to the image.

3. The shot must be captured on the land level of the Machinima SIM or the NeoVictoria SIM in Second Life and have been taken during the contest period.

To take part in the competition you need to:

~ Visit the NeoVictoria estate in Second Life between 1 December and 31 December 2014 to take your images; here’s the SLUrl: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/NeoVictoria/17/128/1005.

~ Join the "The NeoVictoria Project" group on Koinup (http://www.koinup.com/group/neovictoria). Koinup is a free social network based on user-generated content, with a focus on virtual worlds.

~ Add your images to our Kionup pool by 31 December 2014, limit of two per avatar. Here's the direct link: http://www.koinup.com/group/neovictoria/works/add/.

Include the following:

1) Your Second Life avatar name.

2) The SIM name where the photo was taken (NeoVictoria or Machinima).

2) The month of the year you think suits the photo best, for example: “Asil Ares presents the Cathedral bell tower in NeoVictoria SIM for January”.

Judging

Depending on the volume of pictures received, the first round of judging will be by the NeoVictoria community via the Internet. We’ll present the top 15 images in-world for a final vote to determine the twelve winners. The in-world vote will be open to all Second Life avatars whose players are 18+ in real life. In-world voting will be from 9 January through 16 January and will be located in the NeoVictoria SkyClub. Winners will be announced on 20 January at a special party in the NeoLondon SkyClub, time TBA.

In addition to the prize money, winners will be featured on the NeoVictoria websites and in the calendar.
