Thursday: Show us your home!

Thu Jan 24, 2013, 2:22 PM


Premium Members! :dummy:

Thank you for your suggestions last week. We love hearing from you about what you like and how we could improve!

But now, we're back to the contest action! This week, we're having a photography contest! We want to understand a bit more about where you come from and your hometown.

:megaphone: Your challenge is to pick your favorite thing about your hometown and submit a photograph of it!

For example, my favorite thing about my hometown is the nature, so I would submit a picture from my Gallery such as the following:

Snowy Creek by Ayame-Kenoshi

What do you most like about your hometown? Is it the people, the weather, the wildlife? What one thing stands out the most? We want to see!

Remember that this is a photography only contest! We don't have many contests for the photographers, so we wanted to give you an opportunity to strut your stuff. It's always helpful to include in your deviation description that your entry is for PremiumMembers. :) Feel free to submit as many photos as you'd like! 

All entries must be submitted to the Your Hometown Gallery folder by Tuesday, January 29, 2013 at 11:59 PM PST.

We'll pick four winners who will receive the Complete set of Emoticon Stress Balls! :la: Winners will be chosen based on artistic interpretation, technical skill, originality, accuracy to the prompt, and story behind their photo. 

Let's know your favorite thing about the place where you live! Submit a photo, and you could win!

My subscription is ending in a couple of days, but entered anyway. Hope it still means I qualify if it runs out before the winners are announced...

Blast! I got a really cool picture on my DSi but I can't submit it to deviantART from there!
Plus, I don't have an actual camera. It would be pretty difficult (not to mention awkward) to go outside carrying a laptop or the tablet I'm using right now.

My town is really boring..it considers 'the sleep town of the country' (everything closes early and a really few places to go)
When you'll ask for apartment photos them I'm in!

There were some pretty views from my old backyard, but the house burned a little over five years ago, and I'm not sure I have any photos left (though most of the ones we had were taken by my dad, anyhow). ^_^" I've been seeing photos of waterfalls and forest stuff on the front page that remind me of it, though. ...don't think I've seen maybe photos of rock formations, though. What could be seen without going very far was just the rock formations on the hills and the variety of colors in the valley beneath the house in the fall.
Though as for towns... I'm not sure what I would consider my hometown. Maybe the town I was at for several years. I guess my favorite things about that were Wal-Mart, Blue Bell icecream (though I only discovered that later), the library, and the little cafe and the bookstore with good art supplies at the college.
Probably my favorite thing about where I life now is the Olive Garden restaurant.

"the place where you live" is not necessarily "your hometown" is not necessarily your "home." These words CAN be the same, but for most people they're not. I wish I lived in my hometown. My heart certainly does *wistful*

You could submit a photo of either. :) I totally understand the feeling -- where I live currently I don't consider my hometown. :)

This is so far my favorite one because you can take a photo and tell the story! :happybounce:
Does it have to be taken now or can it be old photo as well?
