Vice blogTO Photo Contest
In keeping with our current Photo Issue and all, we’ve teamed up with blogTO for a summer photo contest, and to make it all the more enticing, we’ve partnered with Henry’s Camera and Pikto to award some killer prizes to two lucky winners.
Key Dates – The contest is effective immediately and will close at 11:59PM Toronto time on August 8th, 2008.
Grand Prize – The grand prize winner will receive a Nikon Cool Pix Camera from Henry’s, $500 worth of photo developing from Pikto, a copy of the VICE Photo Book, plus our current Photo Issue. Estimated prizepack value: $1000.00
Runner Up Prize – The runner-up will receive the VICE Photo Book and Photo Issue of the magazine. Estimated prizepack value: $150.00
The two winning photos will also be published in on our blog.
How to participate:
1. It’s really quite easy. Anytime between now and August 8th, 2008, submit up to two photos that you think are your best (please don’t give us more than two, we won’t consider them and will probably think less of you). These submissions can be about anything – cool animals, awe-inspiring landscapes, your most captivating photo-journalism – surprise us! First thing’s first: sign-up with your email on our contest page.
If you’re not already a member of Flickr or the blogTO Flickr Group, you can sign up for a free account here and join the group here.
2. When you submit your photos on blogTO, be sure to tag them with the string: “VICEphotocontest”. This will allow everyone to differentiate contest submissions from the rest of the photos in the Flickr pool. If you don’t want to create a Flickr account, you can submit your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. Be sure to submit before the posted deadline. Submissions received after the deadline will not be eligible. Once the deadline is over, a scientific team of blogTO editors and VICE staff will review all tagged submissions and choose two photos (one grand prize and one runner-up) that we feel are the top of the class.
Other Rules and Regulations:
Images must be JPEGs, and be a minimum of 600px on their longest side. Please note that digital and analog photography methods and any Photoshop or darkroom techniques are acceptable. The contest is open to Ontario residents only.
