Photoshop Evangelist Contest Entry

As today is the deadline for entering the Next Photoshop Evangelist Contest, I thought I would share my entry with all of you. If you’ve been following me on my Jason D. Moore Photography Facebook Page or on Twitter, you’ve seen me post this before.

Each video has to be no more than two minutes (check!), use Photoshop CS5 (check!), teach one of the new features in CS5 (check!), and incorporate the concept of “20” in the final image to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Photoshop (check!).

Once they have all the entries, the judges will be weeding out the videos that don’t fit the criteria and select up to 12 finalists. At that point, between September 8th-20th, voting will open up to the Photoshop Facebook Community and the video with the highest number of votes wins.

What do you win? I’m glad you asked! The winner will receive a copy of CS5 Design Standard and an all-expenses paid trip to Photoshop World next spring with the change to teach at the conference (probably at one of the theaters on the Expo floor).

I really want this, to be totally honest. Not just for the cool prizes or how it will look on my resume. Photoshop and Photography are passions of mine, and if you’ve been following my posts here for any length of time you know that I am also passionate about helping others realize their own potential in the creative field. I’m going to keep pursuing that, contest or not, but I would love to have the opportunity to continue to build on what I’ve already started by making the most of this competition.

I would like to enlist your help! Go to the Photoshop Facebook page and become a fan so you can be ready to vote when the time comes. Get as many of your contacts as possible to do the same. And VOTE!

Thank you in advance for your support and your encouragement! It means a lot!

And now, for the video:

When we don’t have the time, opportunity, or equipment with us necessary to create a true HDR image, CS5 now offers us an alternative to achieve similar results!
