Rules

Last updated: December 29, 2017

The Sophort Safari is a photographic competition where participants use original Polaroid cameras to solve a photographic mission.

Photographic Mission

The event starter bag contains the previously secret photographic mission. It is divided into eight distinctive topics.

In order to win prizes participants have to creatively solve the photo mission and submit their four best Polaroids at the end of the day to our jury by marking them with the topic’s corresponding number, i.e by using the sticker with the number 2 if it’s the submission for topic number 2, and sticking it to the back of the Polaroid.

Our crew will scan the participant’s submitted pictures to send them over to our jury. We will give back the originals right away. Note that the submissions are solely the participants choice.

Jury Evaluation

The jury will evaluate all the submissions by awarding points.

The overall winner is the person with the highest combined score of all four pictures. If there’s a tie, the jury will decide on a winner.

Category winners are pictures that scored highest in one of the eight distinctive topics. If there’s a tie, the person with the overall highest points win. If there’s still a tie the jury will decide on a winner. 

This is how the grading works:

The jury will award points to each submitted picture according to a scale from 1 to 10. 1 is the lowest score, 10 the highest. How and why the jury member comes to his or her decision is solely up to the jury member. We don’t give the further guidelines!

Prizes & Winners

The final, official result will be published on our website. We will inform all winners by e-mail on how to get their prizes.

The overall winner is the person with the highest overall score on all four submitted Polaroids. In the event of a tie the jury decides on the winner.

There is going to be a winner in each one of the eight distinctive photographic categories (topics). Category winners are the persons with the highest overall score on a category submission. In the event of a tie the person with the overall highest score on all four pictures wins the category. If there’s still a tie the jury will decide on a winner.

Each attendee can only be awarded with exactly one prize. If someone would win more than one prize the person can choose one prize from among them. Not chosen prizes will pass on to the person that’s ranked right after the winner. For example the 1st place will pass on to the 2nd place.

Film & Cameras

You can only use film that was given to you by us. You cannot use your own film. Only cameras that can use Polaroid Originals 600, SX-70 or I-Type film are allowed in the competition. You cannot use modified cameras or the Instant Lab. If in question, please ask us: safari@sophort.com
