😱😱! Time flies! It has been almost 2 years already since we've had our previous member portrait contest! Again, we present the opportunity to show yourself to your fellow friends over here.

You can go for the traditional portrait and include only your face (either from the side or front), with little distractions. Or, you can include more than just your face and make something abstract, glamorous or even surreal.

You can either take a selfie with your phone or let someone else take a photo of you, the photographer! No other people can be in the photo, so no group portraits. Facial attributes are allowed.

Just like in the previous contest, you're allowed to make compositions and add minimal editing to your photo. Have a look at the winner of our previous member portrait contest. It was one by Olga.l with the following entry:

Let's get to know each other. Show us who's the face behind all those glorious photos! Because, let's face it, we are all curious to know!

If this is your first time taking portraits, have a look at the following tips and tutorials:

Some basic rules

  • Upload only photos that are taken by you. Uploading photos you didn't take will result in an instant ban.
  • You can make photos on any device you want.
  • Make sure your photo does not have any watermarks.
  • Upload high resolution photos. Keep them under 32MB.
  • Keep comments respectful and on-topic.

Best of luck!

PS: Try to vote on all entries in the contest. The more votes we get, the more accurate the rankings will be. When you see something that can be improved, let them know in a comment. Use this opportunity to learn new skills from each other!
PS 2: Ideas for future contests can be submitted here. The best ideas will be picked and turned into a contest. Make sure to clearly define the rules and objectives of the contest.

1986 versus lately created by kyricom

The photo on the left is me in 1986, while the one on the right was from about a year ago. I didn't shave for a few days to try and match it, but it's all white now anyway and you can't see it very well. :-)
