NZFF June 2018 Screenshot Competition
The competition is now open!

The theme for June is:
"Reflections"
... chosen by Adamski, winner of the April (theme) competition. If you have any theme-related queries, send him a PM!
Aircraft surfaces, canopy, instruments, chrome spinners, wet taxiways ... or in the sea or lakes ... etc. Any sim - any location.

Image
This month's competition is (once again) kindly sponsored by Alabeo and the winner will receive a download of their choice from the excellent range of Alabeo products.
They're great developers and have been a great sponsor in the past, so let's honour them with a good turnout!

SCHEDULE
Images can be submitted (or edited) up until midnight Saturday 30th June (Pacific/Auckland: UTC+12).
Voting runs from Sunday 1st July up until midnight Thursday 5th July (Pacific/Auckland: UTC+12).

Please read the rules below: if you have any queries, please PM Comp Admin for clarification **before posting your entry**.

    PRIZES
  1. Visual Appeal: the winner gets their image displayed as a banner for the following month.
    Vote for the image you find the most appealing.
  2. Relevance to the Theme: the winner gets the sponsored prize and sets the theme for the next screencomp.
    Vote for the image you think best fits the theme.

    ELIGIBILITY
  3. Entry (and voting) for the competition is open to all registered NZFF members.

    THE SCREENSHOT
  4. The screenshot image must consist of a screen captured from a flight simulator program (FS2004, FSX, P3D, X-plane, DCS/IL-2 or War Thunder).
  5. Some editing is allowed: additional images can be added (either real or other screenshots), but the main component of the image should always be from a flight sim.

    IMAGE FORMAT
  6. The images can be jpg or png and must be EXACTLY 1280px wide (any depth).
  7. Though "visual appeal" is all about the complete screenshot image (regardless of shape) bear in mind that, if it wins the "Visuals" poll, the final banner crops to quite a narrow letter-box shape - so try to compose your shot so as not to lose areas of high interest.
  8. No frames or text on the image.
  9. Keep the original uncompressed/high resolution version (BMP or TIFF) saved on your PC - admin may request it from you at the end of the month to convert into a site banner!
  10. DCS users may want to look at these DCS tips.

    SUBMITTING AN ENTRY
  11. Please post all screenshot/entries here - in this topic (below).
  12. Only ONE entry/single image per member is allowed.
  13. Images can changed any time up until closing time (midnight, last day of the month): use the "edit" button at the top of the original post, delete the old image link and replace it with the new one.
  14. If possible, please add details of the aircraft depicted and general scenery/location information.

    VOTING
  15. After the competition entry deadline, all registered NZFF members may cast TWO votes: one for visual appeal and one for relevance to the theme.
    The two votes can both go to the same entry or to different ones - but please vote in BOTH categories.
  16. Entrants may not vote on their own screenshots (!).
  17. The winner in the "relevance" poll receives the prize from the designated sponsor and gets to suggest a theme for the next screencomp.
  18. The winner in the "visual appeal" poll will have a cropped version of their image posted as the NZFF banner for the following month.
  19. Voting is OPEN - and placed by posts in a new (voting) topic.
  20. Votes are along the lines of Visuals vote to XXXX and Relevance vote to YYYY. Voters may add why they voted the way they did if they wish.
  21. Voting runs for five days and then the voting topic is closed.
  22. If you win the theme vote (and sponsored prize), don't forget to post a "thank you" topic with some screenshots!

That's it, folks - get snapping!

Easy one, this month (I hope!!).

Don't forget to look up the various image hosting topics to get around the FSFiles problem.

Wow, that was quick!!! I'd say that was shiny alright! B-)

Any chance we could have a proper 1280px wide version of this? If you can't get Photobucket to produce one, try Postimage.

Thank you Adam for the advise to use 'postimage'. Image was 1280px by downloading first to 'photobucket' but the result was cropped to 1024px, sorry for the inconvenience caused. Regards, Johnny

ok -finally got my s..t together to enter a screen comp which I haven't done for a long time...although this one is from my archives...a rather shiny A2A Piper Comanche over somewhere in FS land. If I stuffed up the size let me know and I will see if I can get it changed if I can work out flickr.

Great to see you back, Naki! I can usually sort the image out if it's larger (which yours is) ... but hate scaling 1024px images *up* to 1280px as they can look pretty awful - especially if the remote hoster has already over-compressed them.

I've uploaded a 1280px version to the NZFF server (keeping your original). Edit your post accordingly - if you're happy with that. If you change your entry at some later stage and have more bother, just shout.

'Propliner' is actually short for 'Proper airliner, with big rumbly radials'

"Cumulus Gate Pavilion for Richard Pearce" stands beside the control tower at Christchurch Airport. Designed by Gregor Kregar, it consists of 1,000 pieces of hand-cut stainless steel which reflect the environment. My version is somewhat less that 1000 sections, being more of an impression of the real sculpture:)
