SL10B, the community celebration that is in the midst of planning a huge birthday party for Second Life’s 10th birthday, has announced their first official contest. The contest is a photo contest, where users should submit photos that reflect the theme of the celebration, “Looking Forward, Looking Back.”
Below is the official announcement of this contest, which you can find on the official SL10B blog:
SL10B Community Celebration “Official” PHOTO CONTEST
The Second Life community encompasses many incredibly talented people from around the world who have displayed their skills in various forms across the grid over the past ten years.
This year the SL10B Community Celebration Team thought – “What better way to involve the residents in the celebration than to hold a photo contest?” This will allow the Second Life community to be creative in expressing this year’s “Looking Forward, Looking Back” theme.
The enjoyment of photography to express yourself and to have fun is all you need to enter, with categories for photographs simply taken inworld, and photographs that have been edited out of world with software such as Photoshop, Gimp or getpaint.
