Datacolor, manufacturer of Spyder3 color calibration solutions has invited Nikonians to join in on a colorful contest.

Datacolor's simple invitation: Show colors, get published & win!

They ask contestants to send images "that show your colors -- images that show how you feel and how you see the world. Even if these colors are black and white, your artwork is welcome. Anything goes, but demands are high!"

Entries will be accepted from now until the 31st of January 2009 and can be in color or black and white in web resolution no larger than 1,000 by 1,000 pixels (small image files). The contest calls for two images from each submitting contest. The submitted images are being compiled with the assistance of artlimited.net. They have made this a public project (anyone can join). Registration for their demo basic package is free, and it can be used for the purposes of this project. Please remember that if you are chosen as a winner, you will need to supply the winning images in a high resolution format.

Thirty participants -- chosen by a jury -- get rewarded with a publication of their two images in the "Real Colors of my Life" photo book, which will be available beginning February 9 in the Blurb bookstore. All proceeds from the sale of the book will go to Las Mariposas, a children's village in Chile managed by the organisation "Hope for Children."

Every winner will get a free copy of the book and will have a chance to also earn one of the three top prizes:

  • First Prize: A one week workshop in Italy at TPW (Tuscany Photographic Workshop).
  • Second prize: Adobe Photoshop CS4 & Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.
  • Third prize: The "Nik complete collection" software.
