The March RAW Editing Challenge is here!

The concept is the same:

  • Download a RAW file and edit it solely in Capture One
  • Upload it for the contest here
  • The deadline is March 21st. The open voting starts on March 22, winners will get awesome prizes!

The March Capture One Challenge has several features:

This month we have a Fuji RAW file!

If you have Capture One Fujifilm, you can finally enter the contest as well!
Sorry, Capture One Sony owners, but the last two challenges were yours!

Note for non-Fuji photographers:
By default, Capture One 12 automatically applies Fujifilm Film Simulation to Fuji RAWs. Here you can learn how to turn it off and get full control over image color and exposure.

In March we’ll try mixed voting.

1. Open Voting

The open voting starts on March 22 and ends on March 27.
Three winners of the Open Voting will get guaranteed prizes:

2. Super Prize

As the open voting will come to an end, I’m going to choose an image from the Top 10 voting list and present it with the super prize:
A license of JPEGmini Plugin for Capture One and Film and Portrait Styles Bundle

Thus, if you collect enough votes to get into a Top 10 list, you could have a chance to win the super prize!

So, download the RAW file and challenge your editing skills!

Don’t forget, that you can edit the image in Capture One only and winners provide EIP files of the edits, so I can share them with all of you!

Tammy’s image was the only editing which each of jurors picked as the favorite and this obviously brings Tammy the first prize!
