This competition consists in a photo of a BJD (or Pullip, all sizes are ok). The photo must reflects your idea of the theme. The jury will appreciate the choice of colors, staging, framing, the appropriateness to the theme…
In order to ensure the neutrality and fairness of votes, the exhibition of dolls selected for our contests will be anonymous this year. Names of candidates will no longer be printed out next to their exhibited work. Each participant will be allocated a number and visitors will vote for their favorite exhibited doll by writing down that number. Only the staff members responsible for the contests will know the names of the elected artists.
Therefore, we ask all participants to be as discreet as possible when sharing the progress of their work prior to the Festival (for instance, by publishing pictures of your work on your personal blogs rather than on national or international forums).
Concerning photo editing, using Photoshop or any other photo editing software, we remind you that only minor editing is permitted for our photo contest, such as: white balance, exposure compensation, noise reduction, contrast, framing, sharpening. The Ldoll photo contest is meant to allow you to show your photography skills and not your editing skills. Your choice of subject and your choice of frame should prevail.
Therefore, all heavy photo editing, such as special effects, distortion or picture-in-picture effects are not allowed for this contest. The Ldoll team will take into account whether participants have respected this rule and include this data for their vote, at their discretion.
Please send us your photo in:
- A4 and
