Okay!  Here it is – the best contest the Gallery has.  Picture perfect is a photo scavenger hunt.  Anyone can play, including Gallery Staff.  The grand (and by grand I mean only) prize is the Linksys E4200 Maximum Performance Dual-Band N Router ($179.99) sponsored by Cisco.  I have one of these and it is awesome.  Truly.  You wouldn’t think that a router would make that much of a difference, but it really does.  I got more than 1 MB difference on a wireless machine in my house.  This is a sweet prize.

Here are the official rules:

  1. Photoshops will not be accepted.  And don’t try to trick me.  I will be able to tell from some of the pixels and from seeing quite a few shops in my day.
  2. You have to print out  the logo banner thing over there (or here).  If you are too poor to have a printer then you need to send me a pic of yourself with the sign you want to use (for approval – this is serious!)
  3. The rules on the pics are pretty specific, but you are not reproducing them exactly.  Like, I used the inside of a box of paper as a “photo platform”.  You can use whatever you want.  A table, a naked lady or a McDonald’s place mat.
  4. I will send a mouse pad to whoever sends the “best” extra credit pic. This could be funny, weird, sexy or all of them.  Best will be determined by some kind of vote or something.
  5. Don’t do your own “interpretation” of the pics.  I don’t want ponies or pics of Skyrim or whatever else you think would be funny (except for extra credit).  Odds are you aren’t as funny as you think.
  6. You can email your entries to me at acadia@superficialgalleryDOTcom or post them to the Gallery Facebook wall or the Gallery G+ Page.  Just make sure you tell me who you “are” in the email.  Like, if you are one of the people on G+ who never shuts up about how “anonymity is terrible” the odds are quite good that your email address is sexDenTisT6969@hotmail.com so be specific.

Scoring will be as follows:

  1. Whoever has the most points wins.
  2. In the case of a tie, the winner will be chosen at random from those that are tied.
  3. You can only do one version of each picture.   Choose wisely.
  4. Contest entries must be in by midnight on Sunday, March 4th.

Have fun!
