Snow and Ice Challenge

This challenge is no longer active. Thanks to all who sent in their submissions!

Are you tired of winter? Is the snow and ice wearing you out? Are you cursing the groundhog and Mother Nature? Unfortunately winter is not over yet. The forecast for the next 7 days includes low temperatures and more snow.

If you want to beat the winter blues, get involved in IT Training’s Snow and Ice Challenge. Grab your camera, Smartphone, or camcorder and take a photo or video that will raise our spirits and make our readers smile.

Your entry must be original and it must be submitted by the person who captured the photo or video. But unlike many other photo or video contests, for this challenge you MUST use your favorite application to enhance, distort, or manipulate the media in some way. For example, you can use Photoshop to put clothes on your snowman or use After Effects to convert snowflakes into ice cream cones. Be creative! Have fun! Get out of your winter funk! If you manage to make us smile, we will post your photo or video on this blog.

If you’re interested but you don’t know how to edit photos and videos, consider taking a Photoshop, After Effects, or Premiere Pro workshop. Our classrooms are always warm and full of bright ideas, but if you can’t bear the thought of getting out to attend an instructor-led workshop, consider downloading workshop materials or attending online training sessions.
