October is National Photographer Appreciation Month!

Thanks to NickalisciousNick for reminding us all about this fun holiday month, and inspiring this contest.

If you love taking pictures on IMVU and sharing them to photo stream then this is the contest for you. It is all about using the many wonderful items in the catalog to create a wonderful photo. We invite all of you talented and creative IMVU photographers to show us your talents in using rooms, filters, fillers, lighting effects, and more when taking a photo. You are free to use your own rooms and photo items or find a nice public chat room that is already set up with back grounds, filters, fillers, and more. You are of course welcome to have friends join in on your photo as well. However, only one person in the photo can post it as an entry and win the prize.


Contest Details:

Start Date: October 1, 2016

End Date: October 23, 2016

Judging: October 24 to 28

Judges: Forum Moderators and Staff

Winners will be announced on: October 29, 2016 (If not before then)

~ The entry must be a link to the photo that is being entered and posted in this forum topic. One entry per post please.

~ The photos should have been shared to the stream during the contest entry period. October 1 to October 23.

~ Two entries per account only. Must be posted in separate posts.

~ Entry link needs to be of the photo entered. Not your whole stream.

Once you have it up you copy the link in your address bar and post it here.

~ Entries must have all products used shown. This includes the outfits worn. Any hidden items will disqualify the photo. Those looking at the photo should be able to see all the items used and be able to recreate the photo.

~ No exclusive products can be used. This means those products that are set to display only, hidden in the catalog, or items priced so high no one else can buy them are not to be used in this contest. They will get your image disqualified.

Questiouns and Answers:

If you have questions about the contest please read the following questions and answers to see if your question has already been asked/answered. If it has not then please post your question to this thread in order to get an answer. Answers will not be given in messages.


Q: How do I enter?
A: To enter the contest you need to follow all the rules to the contest when taking your image. Once you have your image on your photo stream and it follows all the rules as posted in this contest you will need to hit the "post reply" button at the top of bottom of this thread. Once you do that you need to copy the link of your shared photo into your post then hit submit.

Q: How do I get the link to my shared photo?
A: To do this click on the image in your stream you want to enter in order to bring it up to large size where you can see all the products in the scene being used. Once you have it up you copy the link in your address bar and post it here.


Q: Can I sponsor a prize or prizes for this contest?
A: Yes, If you wish to sponsor a prize or prizes please post to this thread stating what place or places you would like to sponsor and what you would like to offer as a prize (credits or products). If you are a developer and wish to have your banner posted in the sponsors section please make sure to leave your BBcoded banner in you post so I can place it there.


Q: Can my image have more than one person in it?
A: Yes, as long as all those in the image agree to it being used in the contest, all products from the room and all avatars are shown. Please know that only one person can enter the photo and only one will win the prize. We will not split the prizes. All prizes will be sent to the winners that posted the winning photos.

Q: If I enter two photos can I win two prizes?
A: No, you can only win one prize. If one of your photos wins a place the other will not be able to win a place.

Q: Can we use VIP gifts in the image?
A: No, VIP gifts are not available to buy to everyone so they are not allowed in the image. All items in the image must be show and be available to buy by any user.

Q: How do you check for hidden items if they are hidden?
A: In chat client pull up your inventory find the icon for the product you want to check and right click on it. The name of the product will show on the icon click on it to pull up the product page on the site. If the product is hidden in the catalog it will show as hidden when you pull it up. Items hidden in the catalog will not show up in the list of products used in photo stream. Which is why I keep saying if judges can not recreate your image by the list then it will not count because we will know that items are hidden just by not being able to recreate it.

Q: Can I use items from disable creators or retired creators?
A: No, you can not used products from disable creators or retired creators because those items can not be found and bought by everyone on IMVU as you would need the link to the product page in order to even try to buy them. They do not show up when searching the catalog so you can not use them.

Q: Can I use products in my image that are set to display only?
A: No, all products used in the photos must by available to buy to anyone on IMVU.


Q: I am using the default avatar IMVU gave me to sign up in my image, but it does not list it as one of the products used on my stream. How can I fix this?
A: You will need to state in your entry post that you used the default male or female avatar that IMVU gives new users to start with in your image so that judges know. For some reason the two default avatars are not showing up in the products list. Please know that if you did not use the default avatar judges will find out the truth when we go to recreate the image to check. So only state you used it if you really did use it.

First entry:

So, the default imvu male avatar doesn't show on the list, it's the one that I got when I registered and it's the only one I have.

Questions - How do you check for hidden items if they are hidden?

So the VIP stuff gifted to users can't be used in the photograph, because they are mostly set to display only?

Hidden means hidden in shop. If the item is hidden in shop then the product page will not come up for the item not allowing people to buy it. It is very easy to check for hidden items. If you are worried one of the items you are going to use is hidden then you only need to try pulling up it's product page on the site to see if it is hidden or not.

You can NOT use products set to display only. All products used in the image must be view-able in your photo stream and be available to anyone to buy.




Anyone should be able to see the products used on your stream photo you entered and be able to recreate it using said products.

I have taken this photo - photo stream it says rooms contents are not shared - it was a vip gift - I list products from client and nothing shows up for room - I can't tell what is in the room product list there is nothing on the client that I can find that says something is hidden in room - I just know that items are there because I can move things around- so I am looking for an easy way to show the hidden items because I don't want to accidentally use something that is hidden in a room.

Is there some way that you can tell you are wearing an hidden item as part of your outfit?

Again you can not use VIP gifts for this contest as they are not products everyone can buy and use. They are usually set to display only or hidden in the catalog. You can not use them in this contest. They are not showing in your photostream as listed products because that room is hidden in the catalog. If you go to the product page of the item in question it will show as hidden.

In chat client pull up your inventory find the icon for the product you want to check and right click on it. The name of the product will show on the icon click on it to pull up the product page on the site. If the product is hidden in the catalog it will show as hidden when you pull it up.


Items hidden in the catalog will not show up in the list of products used in photo stream. Which is why I keep saying if judges can not recreate your image by the list then it will not count because we will know that items are hidden just by not being able to recreate it.


If the items are hidden in the catalog you can not use them. There is no way for you to change that fact. Only the creator of the items can change whether they are hidden in the catalog or not just as if they were display only or not.

I will have to test the issue with the default avatars latter to see if that is really an issue or not. Check to make sure the default male avatar is not hidden in the catalog. I will test it latter when I have time.


You can not used products from disable creators or retired creators because those items can not be found and bought by everyone on IMVU as you would need the link to the product page in order to even try to buy them. They do not show up when searching the catalog so you can not use them.
