Send us your best single photo that captures the state of the residential real estate market, for a chance to win a $200 gift card from Amazon.com. Your photo submission should be in digital form and must be sent via e-mail or available for viewing on the Web. The photo can be color or black and white.
The photo should tell a story about the housing market and it should not be a marketing or promotional photo for a particular property, company, business model or individual.
The contest deadline is March 31, 2009.
1. How to submit your photo for entry in the contest:
- Send your photo (only one photo entry per person will be considered) as a JPG/JPEG image (less than 1 megabyte file size ) via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, you can send us a link to a photo that already appears on the Web.
- If you are a Flickr.com member, you can visit the Inman Photo Contest group at the following Flickr site: http://www.flickr.com/groups/InmanPhotoContest/. At this group page, you can select the photo you would like to submit and click "send to group" above the photo you are submitting. Flickr users: please tag contest entries as "inman photo contest."
2. You must be the original photographer — we will not accept submissions of another photographer’s work.
3. Photos cannot be doctored or otherwise altered to present a false picture of the original scene. Photo cropping and editing for color/contrast/brightness is allowed but not when it grossly distorts or misrepresents the original scene.
4. No illustrations will be accepted.
5. Provide detailed caption information for the photo (200 words or less). What story does this image tell, in your opinion? When was the photo taken? Where was it taken?
6. Please provide your full name and provide a link to your Web site (or a link to where the photo can be found online) so that Inman News can properly credit your photo. Inman News may choose to publish and/or republish selected entries, with the photographer’s attribution and link, one or more times. Please specify if you do not wish the photo to be republished by Inman News and if there are usage limitations with the photo entry.
Inman News will select a top-10 list of photo contest winners with input from our audience. Watch Inman News and the Inman Blog for contest updates.
The top-10 photos will be named in April, and the photographer of the No. 1 photo will be awarded a $200 Amazon.com gift card. Click here to view some contest entries already submitted.
