THE CONTEST

George Clooney stars in THE AMERICAN – a new suspense thriller coming everywhere to theatres September 1st. Going undercover as a photographer, Jack (Clooney) is a deadly assassin. As he roams the streets of Italy, Jack uses the disguise of the camera lens to conceal his true identity and survey his surroundings.

Now's YOUR chance to go "undercover!" THE AMERICAN and deviantART invite you to roam your local streets and capture the hidden corners and secret nooks of your neighborhood. We're looking for photos that capture a "slice of life" in a natural setting – spontaneous snapshots that reveal a deeper story within the image.

Three final winners will be chosen by renowned portrait photographer and director of THE AMERICAN, Anton Corbijn!

For inspiration, check out Anton's Photo Blog from the set of THE AMERICAN at TheAmericanBlog.com.

I guess the lack of email means nothing. Oh well. And I thought that the picture had some chances with a quite satisfying number of favourites in the first day. I guess the contest description was not specific enough and I just did not shoot into the bracket of judges' expectations.

I hope there are more photography-exclusive international contests out there! Thanks for giving us a chance, guys :)

If their user-name has a dollar sign before their username/avatar like mine - then they work for dA.

Here is the semi-link: [link]

don't know but, I think I'll not be in the 25th cuz, this is more like Popularity contest than artistic or meaning of the picture. Been there done that.....

So if your pic doesn't have many +:fav: s on better luck next time by finding more people to +:fav:

Every entry is looks at by the semi-finalist judges, and # of favorites don't enter into it at all. Also, when the finalists are sent to the final judge, he doesn't know how many favorites or views they each have.
