This contest has both daily and monthly winners. Each day, a single photo is displayed on the DailyDigitalPhoto.com site and the Imaging Resource news page as the winning "Photo of the Day." At the end of each month, overall first, second, and third place winners are selected from among the daily winners for that month.
Fame and Fortune
Going Andy Warhol one better, our daily winners receive not just 15 minutes, but a 24 full hours of fame, as the literally thousands of visitors to the Imaging Resource and DailyDigitalPhoto sites see their images and are astonished by their photographic vision and creativity. The three monthly winners receive not only additional notoriety, but also prizes furnished by companies in exchange for the promotional value of having their names and products displayed to our readers. (Companies furnishing prizes have no involvement in the operation of the contest itself or the selection of winners.)
The Tax Man's Due
NOTE that the monthly winners are responsible for all applicable federal, state, or local taxes, tariffs, or import duty fees that may result from the receipt of their prize. If local, state, or federal laws in your state or country of residence prohibit contests such as this, please do not enter. (Also note that Imaging Resource reserves the right to substitute prizes or cash awards of equal value, if any of the listed prizes become unavailable due to events beyond our control.) Prizes shipped outside the US will be labeled as "gifts", but Imaging Resource will not falsify the declared value of the prizes for the purpose of avoiding import duties. NO exceptions will be made to these rules.
Prizes will generally be delivered to the winning contestants within 60 days of the close of each month's contest, although it's possible there could be a greater delay if the prize in question is a camera that hasn't yet become available in the general market. (See the contest entry page for additional rules and restrictions.)
Submitted images are reviewed every few days by the Imaging Resource editorial staff, to select daily winners. At the end of each month, the editors select the top three photos to be awarded first, second, and third place prizes, from among the daily winners for that month. Once the editors have made their selections, the winners are notified via email, and arrangements are made to deliver prizes. At the discretion of the "sponsors" involved, prizes may either be shipped directly by Imaging Resource, or by the prize suppliers themselves. All decisions of all judges are final.
