FractalForums.com Spring 2010 Fractal Art Competition

FractalForums recently lost one of our Dearest and Most Talented members,  Titia Van Beugen.
We would like to dedicate this year's competition to her memory and we wish her family, friends,
fans, and associates well in this time of great loss.  Flowers, Butterflies, and images rendered
with Fractal Explorer are strongly encouraged to remind us of our departed friend.

This year the annual spring competition on FractalForums.com is held for a third time in row.
There are 3 Sections, each contestant is allowed to contribute 3 images in each section.
Entries may be submitted as soon as the appropriate sections in the Gallery "Go Live" and
the deadline for entries is the 1st of May 2010.

After that period a one month voting session begins which will last until the 1st of June 2010.

This years prizes are for the first placed in each section, they will receive a cup with the
winning image printed on it.

The prizes this year are generously sponsored by FractalForums.com user Margit Schüttler aka GFWorld.

The Images should not exceed 1200x1200 pixels resolution.  New images as well as slightly modified previously posted images are allowed.  Post working images for color saturation, hue shifting, sharpness / blurring, and even just for fun is also permitted.


The Main Gallery is here:
http://www.FractalForums.com/index.php?action=gallery;cat=36

The following sections are available:

1) Mandelbrot - In this section only z^2+c (The "Traditional" Mandelbrot) Formulas are allowed working with complex numbers.  It is allowed to zoom as deep as necessary.  Julia/Mandelbrot Initialization can be used.  And only one layer, but with an arbitrary coloring algorithm for inside/outside regions of the set is allowed.  Interesting Deep zoom shapes may be found in the "Elephant valley" (see http://ultrafractalwiki.FractalForums.com/Deep_Zooms#Elephant_Valley and/or search the web for details)
or "Seahorse Valley" (see http://www.mrob.com/pub/muency/seahorsevalley.html and/or search the web for details).

http://www.FractalForums.com/index.php?action=gallery;cat=38

2) Fractal Fun - This section is meant as a "wild" section, everything concerning with fractals may be entered here.  You may upload interesting Mandelbulb shapes, or any fractal type you like here!

http://www.FractalForums.com/index.php?action=gallery;cat=37

3) Animation  This year an animation section is featured.  Animations of all fractal types from IFS to Mandelbulbs and beyond are welcome!  The only limitation to the Animation is that it should last at least 1 minute, and max 5 minutes

http://www.FractalForums.com/index.php?action=gallery;cat=39

Since this forum does not host animations, entries will be handled as follows:

Step 1)  Upload video to YouTube or similar host (if you can't access YouTube, or just prefer other hosts,
alternatives include http://www.photobucket.com http://www.vimeo.com and many others).

Step 2)  Upload screen shot of movie to the appropriate gallery and include a link to the uploaded video.


Winners in all categories shall be determined by a Community Voting System using the "Ratings" feature already integrated to the forum's Gallery.  Only ratings made in the FractalForums.com gallery on the images will be taken into account - this includes the screen shots for Animations as well as the "static" images in the other categories.
 
If there are any questions concerning the rules, please post in this announcement thread for clarification.
 

Sincerely
The FractalForums.com Admin Team

How to submit an image to the galleries? It asks me to choose a category and I can't choose the competition. Even when I just choose a random category, it doesn't work. The following error occured:

"Error 500 - Internal server error

Ein interner Fehler ist aufgetreten!
Bitte versuchen Sie es zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt."

So should I just do what it says and wait?

ok, thank you for reporting

i checked the settings, the gallery was in "resize" mode, and had 1280 as image sizes, so it tried to resize the image and crashed, i deactivated the resizing feature, and allowed a max 1600x1600 image size

please give it another try!

sorry, but this is due to server problems, the server can not handle that bi images to create thumbnails from it

It still doesn't work. When I upload an image it takes me back to the gallery, but the image isn't there.

To everyone who wants to upload images: Note that the maximum file size is 976.56kb.

hmm, that is strange, i uploaded at least the image made by paudelbrot, and it worked fine, and KRAFTWERK also didnt has had any problems ...
so, filesize is indeed limited to 1Mb, or a bit less ...

have you tried uploading an 1200x1200 ~800 kb image ?!?!
