Hamishwillee - A few comments

Hi Jen

I've responded to your specific comments in line. This needs a further subedit and perhaps a little simplification - I'll help you with that after we've clarified a few things. Some comments and notes above.

  1. Remember when linking to wiki to use internal link format with double brackets and a pipe
  2. A custom effect is an effect implemented by deriving from CustomEffectBase or ICustomEffect to directly manipulate the pixels in the source image in code. The other type of filter I just called a "filter recipe" - made by combining inbuilt FilterEffects. I would use the Filter Recipe name above to clearly separate the two types.
  3. The prizing is not very compelling compared to previous competitions - the charger is about 50AUD and the camera grip about 90AUD. Compare to Lumia 1020s and the other devices we've had in our last competitions. That may be fine because you're doing this as a challenge, but the effort to create a new filter - even a recipe - can be significant. I would try to have at least one much better prize for overall winner.
  4. What is the competition called? The implication from above is "Nokia Custom Effect Wiki Challenge 2014Q2". As per previous point a custom effect is not a filter recipe, so you might want to consider "Nokia Original Imaging Effect Wiki Challenge 2014Q2" or "Nokia Custom or Recipe Effect Wiki Challenge 2014Q2"
