Photo Competition

ICMMI 2011 Photo Competition is open to all attendees of the Conference. Each participant can submit up to 5 photos dedicated to the general conference theme - "Man-Machine Interactions". The Competition begins with its announcement at the Conference website and ends on September 15, 2011 (extended).

The evaluation of all entries with respect to, first and foremost, their creativity, as well as quality, will be executed by the panel of judges selected by the ICMMI Organisers and they will nominate one winner, while the second will be found basing on nominations from audience during a special dedicated conference session.

Photographs must be submitted on-line via the conference system and they must be in digital format. All digital files must be 5 megabytes or smaller and the accepted format is JPG. Each file must be accompanied by photo caption. By entering the Competition an entrant represents, acknowledges and warrants that each submitted photograph in its entirety is an original work created solely by the entrant, that the photograph does not infringe on the rights of privacy/publicity or intellectual property rights of any person or entity, and that no other party has any right, title, claim, or interest in the photograph. When photographing the work of others, it must be as an object in its environment and not a full-frame close-up of another person's art. Photo editing is acceptable.

The photograph must not, in the sole and unfettered discretion of the Conference Organisers, contain obscene, provocative, defamatory, sexually explicit, or otherwise objectionable or inappropriate content.

The competition entrant authorises ICMMI Organisers to reproduce, distribute, display, and create derivative works of their submitted photographs in connection with the Competiton and promotion of it, as well as with connection to ICMMI Conference in any media now or hereafter known, and agrees to receive no financial compensation on that behalf.

The photographs can be reflexive, documentary, playful, sober or even somber, yet always should depict some manifestation of the influence of machines, old and outdated, modern and innovative, just gadgets or indispensable, upon man’s life.
