HTTP 500 ERROR
- A super boring problem but fear not, your photo looks amazing. It's us. Tiger Camera 2013 is a lot more popular than in 2012 so we are experiencing some server issues at times when we have a lot of photographers uploading at the same time. Our best advice is to try again a bit later. If it remains it might have something to do with the below. So have a look at the FAQ's below.
My photo wont upload
This can depend on a number of reasons. To begin with go through the list below:
- FILE NAME, keep the file name simple, dont use > < . , _ - in the name. BestIsToOnlyUseLetters.jpeg
- FILE FORMAT, you can use jpg, jpeg and png. Tiff, Gif and bmp doens't work.
- FILE SIZE, not more than 10MB and for performance not less that 3MB (although photos in less resolution will work)
If you get a HTTP Error (500)
your photo may be corrupt or at least so thinks our servers. Send us the photo on info(at)tigercamera.com and we'll check it and reformat it so it's good to go.
I sent a password request but the email didn't have the password!
- This isn't as bad as it may seem. You basically participated 2012 and want to try your luck this year again (amazing!).
- The thing is we didnt have the Tiger Tribe 2012 so we don't actaually have a password for you. Just sign up again this year using same email or use facebook to register.
Who is Tiger?
Tiger is a Danish designer store concept that began in Copenhagen in 1995. Since then Tiger has developed into an international chain store with over 220 shops in 18 countries around the world. The concept is a success in every country, and Tiger continues to expand with many more shops abroad.
Originally Tiger was a 10 DKK store (approx. 1.5 euro). Today prices vary - but all amounts are even, so the purchase is simple and transparent to the customer.
Tiger is a place where the customer can browse, explore and where shopping is fun. At Tiger the customers find things to surprise, inspire, amaze and change them. Something for the bathroom, the kitchen, the children’s rooms, the desk, the bedroom, and the living room, for Christmas, the holiday or the garden - things you need and things you didn’t even know existed.
Tiger is not and does not want to be like other shops. Tiger sells the fun, the new stuff and likes to challenge the customers. Tiger selects the products intuitively and with care. These are items with personality - they are quirky and off beat. Tiger sells designer goods in branded packaging and the quality surpasses the customer’s expectations.
Why the Tiger photo book competition?
A small action in our own world can make the world around us more fun and a richer place. This is what artists do - they give us all a taste of their world, making our own world bigger, more creative and more varied. Tiger wants to help bring out the artist in you and connect you with the rest of the world. We do this, for example, via a competition where people in all the Tiger countries can share their photos with each other online. The result will be a printed photo book where your personal universe will meet the world through approx. 220 shops.
What can I win?
The first prize winner will travel on a Safari trip to Africa for two people with a value of 4,700 euro. We include air travel, hotel and pocket money.
The other prize winners get published in the photo book, so your image and your story will be shown with 50 other contributions that the jury finds have artistic potential.
What will the book look like?
The book format will be 27,5 x 24 cm. It will contain approx. 100 pages and will be in English. The winners will have two pages each.
Where will the book be sold?
The photo book will be sold in all of our approx. 220 Tiger stores around the world. Find your store here
When can I buy one?
The photo book will be released around the October 25th 2013 and will be available in every Tiger store.
