    The theme for the Final is a little bit different. This time, what you need to do is to submit ONE image only that interprets or illustrates a film, book, play, TV show or CD/album of your choosing. For example, you could recreate an iconic scene from your favourite film, or a classic album cover. Or you could make an entirely new image that suits the title, either a literal interpretation (as I have done above), or something more insightful that relates to the story. However you choose to portray your title, the Judges will be looking for relevance to your chosen subject, imagination and a photograph that holds their attention.

    Please note:
    ONE image per person.
    You must include the name of the book/play/film/album/TV show when you submit your image.


    How to enter
    You can enter one photo in the Final.
    Only the people named on this post (previous Winners or Runners-Up) may enter the Final.
    All entries for the Final must be sent to me by midnight Sunday 6th September 2009
    Include the name of the subject book/play/film/album/TV show when you submit your image.
    1. Post your photo on Imageshack or a similar site. Instructions on how to do this are here.
    2. Send a PM to me (click the PM button below this post or click here) with the url link to your photo. Do not post your photo or the link on the forums.
    Photos must be in JPG format and will be printed at 7”x5” size for judging. Recommended resolution is 300dpi. Images with dimensions smaller than 7”x5” at this resolution will be printed at 100% of their normal size.
    There is no need to "register" anywhere (you just need to be an Rpoints member) and there is no entry fee. Just take a picture, host it somewhere and send me the link.

    An interesting final round.

    But shouldn't it be 1 photo per previous round you were either the winner or runner up?

    It's not clear from the RPOTY announcement post that there was no benefit to doing well in more than one round

    Is the film you've tried to illustrate in your example picture 'Attack of the killer oranges'?



    Of course i know its Clockwork Orange, but there's no wit in giving the right answer.
    The first one to arrive at RPOINTS, please turn the light on.

    I did toy with that idea, but decided to keep it simple on this occasion. The benefit of winning more than one prize is simply that you got more cash out of it!

    To end any confusion about my picture, surely it's obvious that it's The Fruit at the End of Time?
