Micro Yourself Photo Contest

Finally finished my entry for the Micro Yourself Photo Contest.

Do butterflies have teeth??!!

Take a look and see what you think. I would greatly appreciate any votes for my photo, should you deem it worthy. I had fun creating it.

And there are many fabulous photos in this contest. Here are some I found particularly impressive. (I used to work as a photographer, so I’m looking at them from that point of view.)

Daniel Owens – Making my way through Travels

Gunner Geezer - Flea, Myself and I

Trent Ford - Atomic Tennis!!!

Belinda Kay Snow – Soothing Our Wild Beast

Jason Thornton - Myself contemplating upon a quote from Jasper Johns…

Graham Bradley - My best version

Kevin H. - Avoid spiders and frogs while climbing

Aaron TheIcon Spriggs - Not only did I shrink, but I went back in time…

Brad Hesse – Micro-Managing Money

Melody Scott - Strange things from the deep!

C.S Skates - Tiny Dancer

Carl Scott - Man, I hope that's decaf!

Melissa Lucero Diaz - Who say's little brother's aren't pests?

According to the rules of the contest:

Voting Period: Up to Fifty (50) Finalists eligible for the grand prize, first prize, second prize, and third prize winners will be selected by public voting from among the eligible entries. The voting period will begin at 9:00AM (ET) on Tuesday, November 1, 2011 and end at 11:59pm on Tuesday, December 20, 2011. Users will be able to vote for each submission only once and should base their vote on the following criteria: i) how successful the photo is at making its subject look miniaturized; and ii) creativity and originality.

Judging Period: A team of HarperCollins employees will deliberate over the finalists chosen via public voting from December 20th, 2011 – January 4, 2012, and one (1) grand prize winner, one (1) first prize winner, five (5) second prize winners and twenty (20) third prize winners will be selected from the fifty (50) finalists on or about January 5, 2011. Judges will evaluate the photos based on the following criteria: i) how successful the photo is at making its subject look miniaturized; ii) creativity and originality; and iii) how well the photo captures the spirit of Michael Crichton’s body of work.

So if you can make it into the top 50 based on votes, you’ve got a shot at the Grand Prize. The judges take it from there.

Good luck to everyone who entered!
