8 years ago - Congratz to @btweatherston for a unique use of light and the capture of commercial trend. We felt @btweatherston bridged a generation Y concept through to a generation X concept an beyond. Good use of light, good talent, warm color and great story.
8 years ago - Wow, I'm totally honored. Thank you @Adobe!
8 years ago - Thank you so much for nominating and considering me, @Adobe Systems!
8 years ago - @all, thanks for your patience. This was a very difficult decision based on the incredible vast choices of quality submissions. We extended this photo challenge to map to the Snapwire creative cloud offer on our website:

8 years ago - any new nominations? +)
8 years ago - How doth the little cat spiller contain the excess spillage?
8 years ago - thanks to all
8 years ago - If it's just regular portraiture, I don't understand why the many of mine didn't get nominated. @benbdprod
8 years ago - can anyone explain the time extended again?
8 years ago - Again???
8 years ago - It seems it never ends @irvingbarcenas.
8 years ago - I just don't understand when this challenge will end because I submitted and was nominated 3 months ago and the time keeps getting extended.
8 years ago - I hope that my work gets nominated at least one piece but I don't know if I have what it takes for what they are going for. I create fine art photography portraits and have won $1000 before for a piece last year but I don't have faith this time I didn't when I entered the last time.
8 years ago - Thank you for the nominations!
8 years ago - Still wondering mysel what qualifies and actually gets you nominated.
8 years ago - so any help would be....well....helpful. lol. 😆
8 years ago - so I am wondering if I could get some feedback here. I submitted a few pictures and I was wondering what I could do so in the future I have a better chance of getting nominated. I thought my pictures where pretty good but I guess they didn't speak to @adobe and that's ok. I just want to improve.
8 years ago - I am new to this. Hope I get nominated.
8 years ago - Thanks for the nomination! ✨
8 years ago - My first upload. Hopefully all goes well.
8 years ago - What gets you nominated? I've submitted to Adobe lots of times using different images that I think are good and win contests elsewhere...I'm really just not sure if I'm submitting these images correct at this point.
8 years ago - Thank you for the NOM!! Gonna Submit more now! :)
8 years ago - Thanks for the additional nominations!
8 years ago - a lot of great artists here. very happy to be nominated. ☺️✨
8 years ago - Re-opened by Request owner.

8 years ago - Nominated by Adobe? Thanks!
8 years ago - Ty ty so much!!!!
8 years ago - @EnglishBayChick make sure you save your images in sRGB :) that might help with the colour
8 years ago - how does one go about being nominated?
8 years ago - The colour on my image looks quite different than on my screen. How would I correct that?
8 years ago - Thank you for the nomination. I feel very flattered! !
8 years ago - Thank you for the nomination @Adobe
8 years ago - Thans for the invite, guys! I'll have a look at it! :)

8 years ago - congratulations on your first natalia osmolovskaya
8 years ago - My first submission :) excited!
8 years ago - how do you get nominated? I am new...
8 years ago - @Emerald Images submitted to this request can be edited in any Adobe program. Photoshop, Lightroom, or even the Adobe Creative SDK built within the mobile Snapwire app. @RoadDogSnaps All nominations are being done by Adobe
8 years ago - @emerald I've asked several times if this was #teamadobe or #teamsnapwire doing the nominations. Trying to see the "buyer's" interest based on these nominations is impossible.
8 years ago - agree with @John Lynn
8 years ago - @Adobe, Confused by the brief. Although some excellent images have been nominated there are many that don't seem to illustrate the use of Adobe products at all; more like point and shoot snaps. Clarification would be good. Thanks.
8 years ago - Many thanks for the nomination @Adobe! Stoked!
8 years ago - Thank you for the nomination! I'm so excited. I love adobe and wouldn't be able to live without you.
8 years ago - Stoked about the nomination, Adobe! Much appreciated!!
8 years ago - thanks for all the nominations! one more and I get advanced!
8 years ago - @DomRubino Once an explorer receives a nomination, they automatically become a shooter. You don't see any explorers with nominations because they have all leveled up to shooters!
8 years ago - I just need to be have this validated. I did a photo art piece using Photoshop and an Adobe Creative stock photo of a man. Is that ok for this type of challenge?
8 years ago - Thank you so much for the nominations. Much appreciated
8 years ago - Is there a reason why no explorers have been nominated? Besides the obvious... I see a lot of really good explorer shots.
8 years ago - Thank you so much for the nomination!
8 years ago - what I don't understand is that a lot of photos nominated doesn't seems to have been adjusted in Photoshop, so what the point? are you just looking at any portraiture? thx
8 years ago - great site fantastic picture to all
8 years ago - Thank you so much for the nomination!!
8 years ago - @Snapwire - Cool, Thanks
8 years ago - Love this thank you!
8 years ago - @Schaff for most purposes a portrait can be anything from headshot, to head and shoulders, to three quarters, or full length. As long as the image contains an individual or group of individuals, it can be considered as a portrait.
8 years ago - Please guide me right - I thought that a Portraiture is a head and shoulders shot. What type of photo is a Portraiture?
8 years ago - Thank you for the kind nomination!
8 years ago - I can't live without Photoshop, my addiction is incurable...
8 years ago - Thanks for the nomination!
8 years ago - Lol. Same thing happened to me. How could something not be related to such a brood topic.
8 years ago - I am sure snapwire will delete none related shots...they usually do. I submitted most of the pictures and I personally don't see anything wrong with them. Adobe was used and they are portraits. Happy Shooting (:
