Show me your Pets or your friends Pets

thealliance_thealliance_syndicates_pagebreak.png

So everyone knows that pets are a part of the family just as much humans. So let us see your furry family members. If you don't have any pets of your own, take some pictures of your friend's pets.

These pets do not need to be furry, but they do need to be someone's pet. So do not submit a generic wildlife shot.

NOTE - We have had a lot of newcomers to the contest recently and some have not been reading the rules in their entirety. Only ONE submission per contest is allowed. Please do not enter more than once. If you see other people doing it, feel free to comment to them and inform them of the rules.

How is the Deranged Photography Contest set up?

thealliance_thealliance_syndicates_pagebreak.png

The contest will be broken up into three different tiers. Each will have a different payout for the winners based on what tier you enter into. Here is a breakdown of the winning based on the tiers:

PlaceProfessionalAmateurBeginner
1st1.25 SBD1 SBD1 SBD
2nd0.75 SBD0.5 SBD0.5 SBD
3rd0.5 SBD0.25 SBD0.25 SBD

Each contest will be open for submissions for 5 days after the post is made and then closes at 0100 UTC (1800 MST) on the 5th day.

This will give me and any guest judges time to judge the submissions and create the post announcing the winners.

How to enter

thealliance_thealliance_syndicates_pagebreak.png

When you enter a photo in the competition, you will state what tier you want to be judged in and locked in for the month at that level.

For example if you enter a photo, you drop the photo in the comment section, state what level of photographer you are, and then give a description of the photograph.

If you want to make your own post and reference the contest in your post, that would be awesome, just remember to post your picture in the comment section along with your post link. Who knows, you may get a visit and an upvote on your post as well as an upvote on the picture. Use the tag #derangedphotography to make it easy to find your posts.

NEW FOR MAY!!

thealliance_thealliance_syndicates_pagebreak.png

There will be a prize pool of 5 SBD for each tier for the photo of the month. At after the final contest results are posted, I will create an additional post for everyone to cast their votes for their top photo of the month.

Each 1st place winner throughout the month will be tagged in the post as notification to drop their photo in comment section and the photo from each tier that receives the highest number of votes, number not value, will win the 5 SBD, plus they get all the rewards of the upvotes on their comment too, so win win for them.

I am hoping that this is incentive for everyone to continue to go out and shoot amazing photographs. You are all doing great.

Additional Notes

thealliance_thealliance_syndicates_pagebreak.png

This contest is in its early stages and as time goes it things may need to be tweaked to benefit the group as a whole to make it a more fun experience for everyone.

  • Contestants can only win 1st or 2nd place once a week.

  • Only one submission per contest. Extra submissions will be ignored.

  • You can switch your tier ONE time per month, but only if you are moving up into a higher tier, for example if you are currently in the amateur tier, but you think that you have a photograph that you want to enter in the professional tier, you can state that you are changing your tier to professional. You will then be locked into the new tier for the remainder of the month. You are not able to move down to a lower tier, like going from amateur to the beginner tier.

  • If you do not state wish tier you want to be judged in for the month, I will leave a comment to remind you to do so, but if you don't respond, you will be assigned to a tier and locked in for that month.

  • Plagiarism will not be tolerated in any form. All submissions must be your own work. I will investigate every entry and one of the main sponsors is the @steemcleaners team, so if you are caught plagiarizing, not only will you be blacklisted from competing from any future contests, but you will be reported to Steemcleaners as well. It is not worth it to try and cheat, especially with the 3 tier set up where everyone has an equal shot of winning.

  • Deranged Photography Contests also has a discord channel that you can meet fellow photographers and keep up to date with all of the latest news that is going on with the contest. You can join at this link:

Now get out and start shooting

thealliance_thealliance_syndicates_pagebreak.png

I hope you are all excited about this new contest. The contest themes will be different than what you are used to seeing on Steemit, and I am doing this to encourage everyone to get out and shoot new pictures. If you are a life long professional nature photographer, some of the themes may push you to try and learn something new. If you are just a beginner photographer, this is a great place to have fun shooting all sorts of exciting styles and learn in the process.

That looks like my brother's dog. Awesome picture

Thanks a lot, Wes! I like German Shepherd.. but I love all dogs :))

Awesome theme :) Here is my entry. It is the Australian red-claw crayfish :) His name is Claude and he is about 25 cm (10 in) long.

·

LOL, that is awesome. I have never seen a pet crawfish before. Sweet colors.

·

Lovely! I remember I once told Lil that I felt sorry for him as his fellows are commonly eaten by us in Australia ;)

·
·

I remember that! Cant imagine someone would do that to Claude :( Crayfish are awesome, they are so much fun to watch and care for :)

A friend of mine is a great lover of snakes - here is a shot I took of his Python for my amateur tier entry x x x

Snakes are so cool. Great shot.

Thank you so much - I am glad you like it!

Pro - This is our beautiful cat Ponyo. Since day one she has ruled the household and acted like she owns the place. We only get to give her attention on her terms and she love the camera! I got this photograph of her nesting on a laptop case with her favourite gold fur cone - what else did you expect?!

·

LOL, that is so awesome. My laptop case is covered in fur because that is my cat's favorite place to hangout as well. Your cat looks like a queen holding her gold fur cone. Those green eyes are sweet.

·
·

Hahaha that's funny! Yes she definitely it a Queen that's for sure!

·

She looks like a calico we had a few years ago - her name was Winnie and she had 6 toes on each of her front paws - a polydactyl cat. And she was a Princess. If we touched her when she wasn't in the mood....she'd duck her head and make a noise like "doooonnn't"

Lots of fur on Ponyo, lots of brushing, lots of pampering her majesty .... I can tell :)

·
·

Awww Winnie sounds cute! Oh yes Ponyo is definitely a pampered cat! She sleeps most of the day and only graces us with her presence when she wants to! Definitely doesn't allow any strangers to touch her precious fur either!

·

So beautiful 😻 She has such stunning green eyes and lovely fur ❤

·
·

Aww thank you, I'm sure she would love to hear that!!

·

Absolutely gorgeous. These green eyes will hypnotize you.

·
·

Yes, and they do hahaha!

Someone kept it as a pet in northern Bali, Indonesia. I was a bit scared standing close to shoot this strangely beautiful creature:

T

·

aww That face :D so cute boy!

Reptiles are for sure pets. We had a ball python named Precious for the longest time until my kids didn't want to take care of her anymore. Then we gave her to a little girl that was so excited to have her.

·
·

Yeah, that's why every item of clothing I own is covered in pug hair.. lol

I was taking some family pictures and they brought out their Sheltie puppies to include in a couple pictures. They were so adorable and when it was time to put them back in their pen the owner stuck them all in this laundry basket to be transported in.

Hi there and happy Caturday! :) I am entering the Beginner tier. This is my cat, Mufasa. :) I think this picture purrrfectly captures how happy he was after I returned this week from a week-long vacation. He just flopped down on my bed and looked so relaxed and happy, I just wanted to snuggle him right away! Bonus: he's one of those rare cats that let you pet his belly. :) I also shared this photo in my own post here. Hope this picture brings a smile to your face. :)

·

This looks like one of my old childhood cats named Niko. I remember one time we went snorkeling and came back and found him alseep in a bag of cat food.

·
·

Oh my gosh, that is so cute!! Sleeping in a bag of cat food sounds like a cat's dream, lol.

Dependency

Such a cute little kitten.

·
·

yeah and i hope you can understand the meaning of this picture how i do.
um talking about the title "dependency".

Thanks for your nice compliment.

Tier: Beginner

Well, being a pet is not always an easy job!
What I can see on this pic are 4 family members, 3 of them enjoying their time and 4th one thinking something like "Ohh, again?? You've done some pictures of me yesterday guys, c'mon!"

Our doggie Baska always looved to play with kids, but sometimes it was just too much even for her. But as brave as she was, she never let those kids know that after 2 hours, they're slowly becoming just pain in the ass :D Although on this picture, it's pretty apparent :D

..on the other side, have we left her alone for 2-3 hours and she always came back with a toy in mouth to get some attention again :D

blr 2011-2012 014.JPG

·

Your pictures of Baska are always so awesome. She looked like such a great part of your family.

Snakes are such awesome pets. We had one for years. Great shot.

·

I think so too, thank you ☺

Those are gorgeous husky shots, bro.
We really want to get either a husky or a samoid.

So cute. What kind of a dog is it?

Well, we know she has Rhodesian ridgeback in her, maybe some staffy, but not sure of other mixes.

Beginner.

This is a tongue named Magic... I mean my dog named Magic!

But look at that tongue! That's a dangerous object there, prone to lick you in your mouth when you think you're a safe distance away.

Honestly, today I probably wouldn't even mind. I just got her back yesterday after being away a month, finding us a new home in a different state. Never want to be apart from her again. But really, can you believe such a small dog has such a long tongue?

IMG_0355.JPG

(Definitely beginner category)

·

lol. My Yellow Lab knows how to time it perfectly to get you with his tongue when you think you can lean in and get away before he can lick your face.

This was my dog Nugget. He made it to nearly 14 years old but sadly he passed away a few months ago. This is one of my favorite photos of him in my favorite meadow.

Thank you @countrygirl! It was indeed hard but he had a great life.

I'm submitting at amateur level.

Meow! This is me @sirgatodaniel inside my favorite box, for this picture I was playing with my human. It was a very fun moment because it was hidden in the box and when I went out to look outside was my human with his camera waiting. =^-^=

Tier - amateur.

This is my crabby cat Thomas. He's 12 years old now and starting to look and act like his age. He was sitting at the top of our stairs this afternoon in front of an old wooden framed mirror. The light was just right and I had to get a few pictures of him. He yelled at me a couple of times but I managed to ignore his protests and capture a couple.

DSC_1861.jpg

I don't know what category to put myself in as I have never labelled me before. I'm not sure what the difference is between beginner and amateur. I'm not a pro that is for sure. Maybe you can help me out with it.

·

There really is no defining factor. It is all really based on how much experience you think you have and what type of equipment you use. I will put you in beginner for now and if you want to go up, then let me know. Your cat looks like one of my old cats. It brings back memories.

·
·

okay....that's probably fine. Labels are always a tough thing for me.

Hello! This is a young tiger from the zoo in my town. This one is very friendly and playful as a kitten, so Idid not have any problems when I took the picture right next to his nose ;))
