I am so all over this it's not even funny. Motor Trend is having an "Automotive Photo of the Year" Contest in which it will choose one winner and publish his or her photo in the magazine as well as fork over a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT as a prize. The rules are pretty simple: don't photoshop the pic (even red-eye removal is not allowed), get the permission of people and owners of vehicles that appear in your picture, and email your entry to photocontest@primedia.com. The photos will be judged by Motor Trend's marketing staff using the following criteria: overall impact (25%), choice of vehicle and relevance to theme (25%), originality of submitted photograph and setting (25%), technical virtuosity (15%), composition of photograph (10%). Seriously, the only way I'm ever going to be able to afford a digital SLR at this point is to win it in a contest. Game on!
