Indonesia Photo Challenge Winner Announced

By Amelia Apsari on January 27, 2009 06:47 Products And Features 0

The overwhelming response to Indonesia Photo Challenge was truly heartening. The Eyeka Asia team and the judges had a difficult task to accomplish – selecting the winner among received entries of high production value.  We garnered a total of 1,688 qualified photos! After much deliberation, all the judges has selected Gary, coming from Bojonegoro, a small town in Java Island, as the winner of Indonesia Photo Challenge.
Berikut ini adalah komentar dari dewan juri dan CEO Eyeka Asia mengenai Eyeka Indonesia Photo Challenge: Arbain Rambey (Kompas) Komentar soal lomba: Lomba Foto Fashion dan Beauty yang digelar Eyeka adalah hal baru. Selama ini lomba foto yang ada hanya meliputi foto-foto lanskap, tematis dan human interest saja. Terakhir kali lomba foto fashion untuk umum kalau saya tidak salah ingat adalah tahun 1994. Itu pun hanya fashion. Sedangkan foto beauty jarang dipertandingkan untuk umum. Secara umum, kehadiran eyeka memberi penyegaran dalam dunia fotografi di Indonesia. Komentar soal pemenang: Foto pemenang dalam lomba eyeka kali ini sejak awal memang menyita perhatian juri karena memang berbeda dengan foto lainnya yang sangat "generik". Pengaruh internet membawa dampak kepada pemahaman foto secara umum. Siapa pun banyak belajar dari internet, sehingga di bawah sadar foto-foto karya mereka sama dengan yang beredar di internet. Pada sebagian besar foto yang masuk, juri merasa tidak melihat foto yang baru. Foto pemenang ini sangat punya kepribadian, sangat Indonesia baik wajah model, asesori maupun latar belakangnya yang rumah papan yang dicat kapur. Foto pemenang ini makin menggembirakan karena pemenangnya bukanlah muka lama yang biasanya memenangkan aneka lomba foto di Indonesia. Darwis Triadi Komentar soal lomba: Saya sangat mendukung sekali kegiatan Eyeka Indonesia Photo Challenge ini karena lomba ini membawa dampak yang sangat positif untuk perkembangan dunia fotografi di Indonesia. Diharapkan kompetisi seperti ini bisa dilakukan secara periodik sehingga para fotografer  indonesia bisa lebih berprestasi lagi. Menurut saya, hasil karya yang dikirim kemarin telah memenuhi ekspektasi. Tetapi masih banyak hasil karya  yang manipulasi digital-nya terlalu kental. Untuk kompetisi berikutnya, diharapkan fotografi kembali ke dasar lagi dan jangan banyak menggunakan banyak tahapan digital imaging dalam setiap karya foto. Komentar soal pemenang: Secara garis besar, ada 3 poin kenapa saya memilih hasil karya Gary sebagai pemenang: - Sesuatu yang sangat simple dan natural, di mana tidak menggunakan banyak tahapan digital imaging. - Mempunyai formula pencahayaan yang masih sangat kental di dalam fotografi. - Fotografi yang dihasilkan mempunyai warna Indonesia yang sangat kuat.  Karena selain teknik dan komposisi, kita juga mencari sesuatu karakter Indonesia yang kuat. Jerry Aurum Komentar soal lomba: “Saya sangat terkesan dengan tingginya kualitas foto yang diperlombakan. Terbukti Indonesia memang penuh dengan orang-orang kreatif bertalenta. Eyeka harus lebih aktif lagi menjembatani orang-orang muda berbakati ni dengan pusat-pusat industri dunia melalui kegiatan seperti ini” Komentar soal pemenang: “Foto Gary mempunyai komposisi yang bagus, model berwajah unik, detail fashion yang jelas, pose sempurna dan yang paling penting, foto ini punya “soul”, sebuah karakter. Foto ini sudah saya jagokan dari babak awal”. Alexandre Olmedo – CEO Eyeka Asia The result of the campaign was very impressive in terms of quality, participation & expression of the Indonesian soul. I felt honoured to be surrounded by Arbain Rambey, Darwis Triadi & Jerry Aurum, who are highly recognized photographers, as the selection of the winner was not an easy choice among the 1,688 qualified photography. With the selection of Gilroy Yoewono from Bojonegoro, Eyeka demonstrates his commitment to help creative talents get recognized & rewarded for their contribution. Indonesian is the Eyeka’s biggest & most talented community of creative talents so we look forward to seeing more creative talents being recognized outside of Indonesia. Eyekasian, Thank you for all your participation and please join us in congratulating the winner!

A few tips on some site's key functionnalities

By Mikhail Kachakhidze on April 12, 2007 16:07 Products And Features 0

Judging by the detailed comments posted by Gilles, it seems that some of the site’s functionalities are not really obvious to many of you. Here is a detailed answer which I hope will be helpful. Uploading your images When using the Upload function, you can actually upload as many photos and/or videos as you wish: each time you fill-in the field and click on “browse”, a new line with an empty field appears underneath. There’s no limitation but the more files you upload at once, the longer the upload. Can be a bit frustrating if there is a connection “hiccup” during the upload… ? We also provide a Photo folder upload which allows you to transmit a whole series of pictures without having to enter them one by one. Organizing your images To organize your collections you have two options : - before upload : on the Upload page, choose the collection where you want to integrate your new images - after upload : on the My collections page, the first icon: All my media lists all your uploaded media, allows you to select any of them and drag-n-drop them in any collection. Showing and publishing images Showing and publishing your images is quite simple: All pictures and videos are moderated before publication in order to check their quality and originality. Once moderated, works can be viewed on the site. To blog one of your collections, all you have to do is: 1. go to My collections page 2. choose a collection 3. in the lower box where you see stamp-sized pix, click on Blog me 4. a preview appears: beneath the player you’ll find a code/link to copy and paste into your blog You can also create a lightbox including your and other people’s images and blog it : 1. on the My collection page, go to the bottom of the page (lightbox tab) 2. click on the New button and name your lightbox 3. drag-n-drop in the grey area the pix and/or videos you selected 4. click on My lightboxes (upper-left corner) 5. select the lightbox you created 6. in the lower box where you see stamp-sized pix, click on Blog me 7. a preview appears: beneath the player you’ll find a code/link to copy and paste into your blog So, you may ask: what’s the difference between a Collection and a Lightbox? A Collection allows you to edit your OWN work while in a Lightbox you can put any media from the site. Did you find these tips useful? Don’t hesitate to let us know.
