The theme of this Moblog competition is "I'll tell you a story...".

how to Vote and What to Do.

The prizes...
Five prize winners' entries will be printed and displayed on the walls of Hadley House in London, between December 2006 and February 2007.

They will also each get a bottle of Family Masciarelli's top range wines.

The best competition entries will also be included in the Exhibition Portfolio.

The categories...
There will be three categories of entry:

1 - Phonecam images with little or no manipulation
2 - Camera images with little or no manipulation
3 - Phonecam or Camera images with significant manipulation (don't forget this is a photographic competition)

To enter...
Send in a series of between 2 and 5 images that show your take on this quote, and when the competition closes, cast your votes to determine the winner. We'll tell you how and when later.

Send your entry to <">b> and don't forget to indicate which category it's for.

Competition closes Friday 24th November 2006.

Complete Rules and Conditions.

This is how it works.Go down the list of entries and rate them using the box on the right hand
side under the lowest image. You will have to be logged in to do this and
it's set up to accept just one vote from each moblogger, which means if you
have already voted for an image you won't be able to do so again.
I've spent the afternoon making notes and will normalise the voting come
Monday morning, so if you have any problems send me an email via the contact
button on my moblog.I think the results will be more accurate if you give every entry a rating
but if you don't want to it's your choice not to do so.I'll also be setting up a poll on the Forums and will let you know when I've
done so. I'm doing it because we have so little time and it's a contingency
measure for a worst case scenario and extremely unlikely that this poll will
be used. I expect the voting plus my normalisation to be sufficient and
don't forget I'm the only moblogger not eligible to compete and my decision
is final. However if it's absolutely necessary I will refer to this.
For ratings and poll ? one moblogger one vote please.
If everything works well I'll take the voting, normalise it according to my
current notes and let the winners know Monday morning. If you win we need
your original images (by email to me please ? I'll send you the address
later) as soon as possible because our sponsors have only 2 days to get them
all printed and hung before we have to put them up on show. Sprocket is also
waiting to put them into our winners' poster which needs to be printed and
ready to collect by Thursday evening.
If we can't get better resolution images from you by about 2pm we'll go with
the ones that you have posted. This might mean that the prints that have
been hung on the walls at Hadley House are of a lesser quality and that will
probably affect the likelihood of them selling.
Happy Voting!

just double vote per image....but I can vote/rate each image if I choose?
and because there has been some silliness in the past.... 10 is very good and 1 is lowest mark

paintist says:

oops sorry I have looked at rating and it says that...:-)

24th Nov 2006, 16:05

Dhamaka says:

absolutely - I think it's fairer to vote / rate each image (provided you don't give them all the same rating) - but it's completely up to you

and yes, 10 is best and 1 is worst

It is very easy to abuse the rating system, or have the glitches been sorted out for this?

24th Nov 2006, 16:07

Dhamaka says:

I've been told they have, but will be setting up the polls too, as a contingency measure

As a test, I've tried and rated this image ten times, so I'm not sure if ratings will give an unbiased measure.

What does "normalise" mean Dhamaka?

24th Nov 2006, 16:21

Dhamaka says:

Normalisation is a statistical term - and I'll use it the same way that olympic and other sports use it. I know it well because I used to be a statistician for bodybuilding competitions and it's used to eliminate 'freaky' highs and lows and come out with a more accurate consensus.

voting for self...hmmm?
