More Details

Who can submit photos?  
The contest is open to anyone - expat, Korean, & anything in between. 

What kinds of photos can be submitted?

Photos need to have been taken in Korea during 2011 or during winter 2012 travels . Those who publish photos must have the legal rights to publish the photo. We reserve the right reject photos if they are considered in violation of our posting policies.  Each person can submit up to 20 photos. Photos that were submitted in the Summer2011 contest are eligible as long as they did not win a prize the first time around. They do not need to resubmitted.  Instead, the photo can be edited to include the 'bestof2011' tag as described below. 

How can photos be submitted?

 All photos must be in .jpg format and the maximum upload size is 5MB. (info about resaving your photos here and  here).  For exhibition and  judging purposes all photos will be resized to an image no larger than 1200 pixels in width or height.  To submit a photo, register at  Click 'Create/Photo'.  Each photo needs a title, but description is optional.  Click 'choose photo' to select your photo. Under tags, enter 'bestof2011' or 'winter2012'.   A moderator may need to approve photos submitted by new registrants before they appear online. 


Do photographers retain the rights to their  photos? 

 All photo submissions must be the property of the entrant. No images with third party copyright ownership are eligible for entry. We encourage the use of Creative Commons licensing, but licensing is up to the photographers and can be stated in each photo description. Koreabridge reserves the non-exclusive right to use any images submitted to the photo contest in online exhibitions, publications, or for promotional purposes.

How will the images be judged? 

Again, this is more of a photo festival than a 'contest', but since we are giving a way a few prizes...
Online ratings will be taken into account, but a judging panel will make the final contest decisions. Judging criteria include the ability to portray some '2011 in Korea' experience in an engaging way, exhibit strong creativity, as well as demonstrate a high level of  photographic quality.   
If you have any problems submitting photos or questions about the contest, please post them in the Koreabridge Stuff Forum.

Re: Best of 2011/Winter Travel Photo Fest - Last Call

I am sure this contest is going to be really awesome because Korea is a very interesting and beautiful country. I hope that I will have the opportunity to see many of the photos that are entered.

Having a photo contest of Korea is really something worthwhile and when it comes to choosing the winning photos it might be a little difficult of an affair.
