Welcome!
Welcome to the first relatively unofficial Driveclub Photo-mode competition. It was requested that someone should create a Photo-mode competition for this game, and I volunteered to act as the host for the time being. For the moment, I will have a more or less unrestricted competition, with the intent that i may be able to gauge the amount editors and non-editors, so that i can create new competitions accordingly.



For this first week, the theme will be completely open! Give me your absolute best shot! Don't hold back!​

Please, ensure you read and understand all requirements for this competition. Failure to follow the rules may result in disqualification. If you have questions, start a conversation with me!

  • It is recommended you host your image on ImageShack, Photobucket, or Flickr. (not a necessity, it just makes it a bit easier)
  • Not sure how to post a thumbnail or preview image? Read this sticky!
  • Please use a clickable-preview to full-size, not a separate text link for it;
    it makes poll creation much easier!
  • One entry per user. It must be your own work, and never previously used in a comp.
  • Do not ask other users to vote for your entry.
  • Mark your FINAL ENTRY clearly, with red text.
    Unsure how to? Type the following: [COLOR="name of color"]Final Entry[/COLOR]
  • You may change your entry once. Do it clearly; edit out your previous entry, and
    either post the new one in a new reply, or in place of the original.
  • Do not post "Honourable Mentions" or outtakes - just your Final Entry, that's all.
  • Winner gets to choose the following week's theme, as well as the Top 20.
  • Winners cannot enter in their own theme!
  • The Host may ask for the original image and it must be submitted if so.
    It's recommended to save the original image (preferably in-game) until week's ends.
Failure to follow these rules will result in ignored entries and/or disqualification!

I basically just copy and pasted those rules from the GT6 photo-mode competitions, just tailoring them to suit the game more. If you have any questions, please, do ask! :) At a later date, i may make these competitions a little prettier, but right now i am just going to stick with this.

Your shot must be submitted by the 02/05/2015, at 00:00 GMT!

Hope to see a bunch of people entering! I will also probably tidy this thing up at some point to make it more readable. Thanks!

Here we go, I'll submit my entry today or tomorrow.
Appreciated! would you mind giving me some input? which banner size looks best?
1:
2:
3:
And does this style look good at all? And also, would you like to give me one of your pictures (make sure it is suitable) to use for a new banner? I can't just use my own! :)
 
The one you used is great, it would've been better if it was a regular 2.0 but I don't mind. Extend the deadline if you can though.

Ok cool. Sorry about the comp type, but its only for this week. Next week will go back to the regular two, that is if we get enough entries. Also, what should i change the deadline to? :)

Yeah let it be for a week.
 
Thanks for organising this I'm sure it will take off and be appreciated by all @Chameleon9000
2 quick questions-
I can't seem to type in red even if I copy and paste.. Am I missing where you can pick a colour for your type on here as pretty new to this site?
Would it cause problems if I upload an entry straight from pc as I am having trouble with my photobucket profile. :cheers:

To type in red enter this: [COLOR="name of color"]Final Entry[/COLOR]

Yes you can upload straigt from PC by using the attatch file option when posting. Just make sure the file you are attatching is the right size according to the OP.

@Chameleon9000 add the color choice text to the OP please. đź‘Ť

I have finished the banners for the OP (at least i think). I used pictures from me, @Stopforpetrol and @mazda787 . you guys don't mind do you?

I'm with @sems4arsenal regarding your banner pic, it's good. I like the second size but the paler letters from the third. I'll have a pic tomorrow or Friday.

No Problemo and I agree with Meanelf with regards to size and the lettering pale for a dark background and dark for a lighter image. I think you might also run the first few competitions for longer (±10 days or so) so that we could get more entries and some exposure till we get the show up and running !

Also can we not change the preview size to 640 either direction as I'm sure it will visibly look better ! ? What do you guy's think ?

Ps. thanks for doing this Josh :cheers:

That is probably a good idea. If this is not in the rules on the next comps, then remind me again :lol:

Thats also a pretty good idea, as it would also give me a bit more time to work on this!

Well, unfortunately i have made all of the banners in that last size... so i think they are fine for now :dopey:
