Contest Corner Challenge #95: In the Wild

Title: Contest Corner Challenge #95: In the Wild

Start Date: Wednesday, February 8th, 2012.

Entries Due By: Monday, February 27th, 2012.

Sponsors: DayMen Photo Marketing - Since it's inception in 1981, DayMen Photo Marketing LP has enjoyed an exceptional reputation in the photographic and consumer electronics industry as an innovative manufacturer and distributor of high quality imaging products and accessories.
Acme Made - Founded in 2002, Acme Made specializes in designing protective accessories for today's modern lifestyle. The company is best known for incorporating innovative textiles and materials with contemporary styling to produce attractive bags, cases and sleeves for laptops, eReaders, smart phones, and digital cameras. Acme Made is “Designed Protection.”

Prizes: If the winner is a Premiere Member, they will receive an Acme Made Laptop Sleeve or an Acme Made Kindle Hardback Folio case. If the winner is not a Premiere Member, they will receive a Lifetime, Level I Premiere Membership.

Description: After a couple of months off during the 2011 Photograph of the Year contest, I thought we'd get the Contest Corner Challenges started with something fairly straight forward. Your task is to photograph any animal in the wild. No bugs. No "pets" (or other domesticated animals like cattle and horses). Birds are fine, and so are reptiles (as long as it's not a pet). Animals in zoos are ok, too. If it's an animal, and it doesn't live in a home or on a farm, and you don't need a macro lens to photograph it, you've got yourself a subject to photograph for this contest.



CCC Guidelines. To read the guidelines, please visit here: Contest Corner Rules & Regulations. Please be sure to read these guidelines carefully before submitting your photograph. Any photographs submitted that do not adhere to these guidelines will be rejected and sent back. Please make sure the photograph is taken during the contest period.

Re: Contest Corner Challenge #95: In the Wild

I know that this may sound morbid but -does it have to be alive?

Good question - living in the city in the winter the most wildlife I see is frozen roadkill... With zoos closed it'll definitely be a challenge to venture out and try to track down the critters that aren't hibernating and didn't migrate south.

Tim specified that the animal "doesn't live in a home or on a farm". He didn't say anything about the animal living in the wild. He just said "photograph any animal in the wild". Don't quote me on this, but I think a dead one in the wild is OK

Tim, any comments?

Well if that is the case, I know where I can find some zombies.

Re: Contest Corner Challenge #95: In the Wild

well now that opens an interesting door. Can one shoot "Prey"....That is lets say my dog pursues and catches a fast moving varmit. If I am able to capture a shot of dog and trophy can I call it a picture of the trophy?

Do fish in a fishbowl count as being wild?
