This contest is primarily done for GIMP beginners – and it’s about simple foto touch up. Edit your photos and use simple techniques on it, like contrast, colors & saturation, sharpening, removing of unwanted objects, dodge & burn, etc. Which motive you’re using depends on you – it can be a portrait, landscape or maybe a close up flower – just as you like.

The only requirement: Every submission must have undergone at least 3 working steps (for instance this would be crop, contrast enhencement, blur/sharpen, etc). Please write these steps into the description when uploading your submisson.

Have a nice time with this contest! ;)

Ah... yes... this license does in fact not exist! I meant the Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike license. The rules are hardcoded, but I will change this asap.

Could you clarify what exactly a cc- non-attribution license is? I'm not familiar with this cc license...
