Hello Whyvillians! The Adobe-sponsored Photo Contest is going on strong. Have you sent in your best pics yet?

A short while ago, Adobe, the company that makes Photoshop and all kinds of other great photo editing software, announced they were sponsoring a digital photography contest in Whyville!

Do you have a photo of your pet that you'd like to see in the Whyville Times? You can win clams and maybe even get a brand-new version of Adobe's latest software!

Whyville City Workers will select 25 winners from what you folks submit every month. These semi-finalists will get 200 clams each, and they'll be showcased both in the Whyville Times and on Adobe's Digital Kids Club website!

After three months, three grand prize winners will be chosen out of our top 75. Those top winners will get a full version of Adobe's Photoshop Elements 2.0!

This link will help you take great pet photos:
http://www.adobe.com/education/digkids/lessons/petphotos.html. It's got detailed instructions on how to balance light and shadow, how to capture your subject's spirit, and how to edit your photos stylishly.

And if you don't have anything at home for editing your pics, here's a download of the Photoshop Album Starter Edition. Best of all, it's free!!! Ask your parents before downloading: http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshopalbum/starter.html

Here are your photo requirements:

  • Take the best digital photo of your pet, or a friend's pet!
  • Your photo must be a JPG file (.jpg, .jpeg or .JPG).
  • Please don't send anything larger than 1 megabyte (MB).
  • For safety reasons, you can't have any human faces in the picture. That includes photographs in the background of your photo.
  • Make sure that the photo you submit is yours, okay? It has to be something you took, not something you found online. That would not be the Whyville Way.
To submit your best digital photograph of your pet, go here: http://www.whyville.net/photoContest/.

You'll want to enter a title, a short description, and then click the Browse button to navigate to the file on your computer. Once you've found the file, press the Upload button.

You might have to wait many minutes for the file to finish uploading, depending on the speed of your network connection. Please be patient.

If everything goes well with the contest, Adobe and Whyville will pick a different subject and do the same thing all over again! Help us make this sponsorship a great success -- do your best to submit the greatest photo you can!!
