OFFICIAL RULES:

Submissions accepted April 1st - November 30th 2017
Entry must be a self portrait that is your original work and adheres to the theme. Only one entry per person.

The self portrait must be current (captured during the submission timeframe of the challenge), though composite elements of the image do not have to be current.

At the end of the submission period, the moderators of The Art of Self Portraiture Community will gather entries and select a group of 10 finalists and announce and feature these artists and their images. From these, three winners (1st, 2nd, & 3rd place) will be selected, contacted, and announced. Prizes will be awarded by sponsors.

Please note that moderator judging is subjective (art always is!). Each moderator will cast their vote based on adherence to the theme and rules, as well as their own subjective impressions of the art and aesthetics of entries (such as emotional quality, creativity, overall technical skill required, processing quality, etc). Moderator votes are final and not subject to debate.

#SelfPortraitSunday This Coming Weekend - April 30th!

Everyone is invited to share an image - join us in capturing a current self portrait!

Theme: Vintage
If you would like to share an image that doesn't match the theme, that is fine, too. As long as it was captured within the qualifying timeframe.

Please read this post for the guidelines and FAQ for Self Portrait Sunday: https://goo.gl/QhMJoF

We have a Self Portrait Sunday Category in the ASP Community - all posts and entries for #selfportraitsunday go to that category, which can be found here: http://goo.gl/HJuATd (If you are not a member of the Community, please request to join so that you can participate - it’s easy to join and we are happy to have you!)

You can post your #SPS image to the Self Portrait Sunday Category whenever it is Sunday where you live, during this weekend’s “event” (April 30th).

Please only post one photo to the event. That photo should be taken during the event weekend, or the week prior to the event. Please no dipping into the archives. Your photo can be taken from Monday, April 24th up until the event weekend.

As always, have some fun!
Everyone is looking forward to some great self portraits. :-)

Any questions? We have moderators and members in the Art of Self Portraiture Community who can help you along the way. Drop in and ask questions: http://goo.gl/W69Ohj

If you'd like to, you can also share your image on the FB SPS Event. Check the FB ASP page for details: FB ASP Page: www.facebook.com/artofselfportraiture
