I would like to propose a new concept in photography. A photographer league where you can participate with your pictures. The purpose of this challenge is to go out and try to create the most beautiful pictures of the Viennese streets.

First (A), we will announce the subject of the day, then (B) we go out and shoot, and shoot, trying to capture the beauty of the city based on the chosen subject. At the end of the day (C), we meet, we evaluate your best pictures and we rate from the best to the worst based on a few criteria presented below. First round it will be me who will do the evaluation. Next month it will be me and 2 persons from the previous month, and so on.

Best 3 pictures of the day will be rewarded as per below:

• Picture of the day: 50€

• Second best picture of the day: 30€

• Third best picture of the day: 20€

There is an entry fee for every photographer. For every picture you sent to be evaluated, will be a cost of 10€. I hope to get at least 10 entries so the costs with prizes to be entirely covered, otherwise will find a sponsor before the start of the competition.

The criteria used for evaluating photos are as following:

- the story behind that picture (what it tells, documentary)

- framing (clean shot, no distractions in your frame)

- printing ready (no major editing required before printing, we shot raw)

- the quality of light (low key, high key, white balance, histogram, etc)

All these will be appreciated from 1 to 5, 5 is best. Only RAW files will be accepted, color, no black & white, no edit traces, no in/camera edits.

If you have questions, please do let me know.
