If you have a chance, make sure you submit a bracket in the Corbis PhotoVS shootout. It’s like March Madness with professional photographs – and the final bracket is determined by you, the voter.
PhotoVS takes 32 of our favorite images from across Corbis’ diverse and deep inventory of images and placed them in a bracket tournament in which our users, contributors and customers will vote to determine their final ultimate favorite image.
Users will first complete their version of the bracket – predicting which images they think will win each contest until they have a final winning image. They have until midnight on March 18th to submit their brackets.
Then for the three weeks to follow, voters will vote on each round (five, in total) until they have determined their favorite image of the original 32 selected.
The three people who submit the brackets with the highest points gained (most likely, predicting the most correctly), can win up to $7,000 worth of prizes – including a one-year OnDemand: Royalty-free subscription and a fully loaded Mac Airbook with Adobe CS5.
And for those who vote, Corbis is giving away 20 $50 gift codes to threadless.com in each of the five rounds.
This one looks especially fun for marketing people, photographers and designers.
My personal favorite is the kid with the gun and the backpack that says “Let’s go to school.”
