video contest

Videos should be centered around themes focused on goth, emo, or punk subcultures or body art and body modification.

Videos may not exceed 100 MB in file size, the smaller the better as that submitting larger files can be difficult.

In terms of subject matter, pretty much anything is acceptable from the silly and playful to the intense and sexy. ** If you aren’t sure, just ask.

There is no limit to the number of entries you can submit.

All people featured in the video must be at least 18 years of age.

To submit your video:

Upload your video to a private file sharing tool like Yousendit, Dropsend, Transferbigfiles or Google Drive (share the download like only with us).

Visit our “Contact Us” page at TA leaving any relevant information about your video (title, cast, location…) in the message box along with the other required information. You may leave the download link in the “Website” box, message area or send it to twistedangelsnet@gmail.com .

 *This prize applies specifically to models shot by our staff photographer, not those submitted by other artists.

 **Artistic nudity is acceptable but graphic pornography is not. And the videos cannot contain any illegal or discriminatory activity.

Let’s try this – one more time

So, the first week of our photography contest here at Creative Dreamers was a bust, the second week, we received a lot of entries by some very talented photographers. But this past week made the trend something like that of a heart monitor with spikes of ups and downs. Yes, we had a dud of a week in terms of submissions for the “People and portraits” category.

With all that being said, there is only one week left, one week to show off your skills and win a prize and promotion for doing so. Starting tomorrow (July1) through July 7, the theme will be “Abstract shots.”

Once again, you can send submissions to my e-mail (as indicted in several prior posts) and will retain full rights and intellectual property of your images.

Good luck and we hope to see some great images coming in for our final contest week.

Submit your photos to our photography contest

This week’s contest theme is People and portraits.

Anyone can enter the the winner for the week will get tons of social media and social bookmarking publicity and the awesome e-book “Making Beautiful Photography.”

Take this chance to show off your creativity. The possibilities are truly endless.

Results (or more accurately non-results) of the first week of our photo contest

Much to my surprise…

and a little to my dismay as well, there where no entries into the first week of the Creative Dreamers Photo Contest. This being the case, there is obviously no winner to announce.

I’m hoping things will chance this week with the theme of the contest being “Nature and Wildlife.”

If you’re so inclined, please enter for your chance to win the Deluxe version of my E-Book “Making Beautiful Photography: A Guide for the Novice and the Enthusiast” which even comes with several awesome video tutorials.

Good luck to all who choose to enter and I look forward to seeing the work of some very talented photographers.

Who doesn’t love contests?

Keeping with the creative theme of this blog while still trying to learn about ways to promote your online presence, my research has taught me that a lot of people love contests. And, in coming up with a fun and creative contest, you can potentially help drive more traffic to your websites.

So, the question is – “what makes an enticing contest?” Well, like most things in life, there must be an incentive to participate.  Simply put, there has to be some kind of prize. It can be monetary or non-monetary but it should be something people will value.

Second, it should be set up so that participation is quick and easy.

Below are a few examples of current contests I am running for websites I work with at this time. Feel free to check them out if you want.  And good luck in your own contest creating ventures.
