Army.ca Photo Challenge (April Contest)
« on: March 27, 2007, 19:08:11 »
Ok folks, this time we're trying for something a bit different. For April, let's see what if you guys can put your photo editing abilities to good (?) use, and create some funny/interesting photos using the Army.ca logo.

I've attached a couple of samples of the logo you can use to get started, as well as a couple of "example" photos to get the creative juices flowing. As usual, the winning photo will earn it's creator a $80 CPGear gift certificate.

Standard Contest Rules Apply:

  • There are no limitations on photo subject, location, etc. but it has to contain the Army.ca logo, text, or other identifying mark.
  • The winner will receive an $80 CPGear gift certificate as a prize.
  • You can enter as many photos as you like.
  • Photos must be uploaded into the Army.ca Photo Contest album in the photo gallery in order to be eligible.
  • The winning entry will be selected based on rating and (if there is a tie) views or other factors.
  • The contest closes at midnight ET on April 30th, 2007.
  • OPSEC/PERSEC must be observed at all times.
  • Photos must be original, or contributor must hold the photo copyright.
  • All uploaded photos will be retained by Army.ca and may be used at a later date.
  • Photos must not be offensive in nature.
  • Photos from previous Army.ca Photo Contests are not eligible.

Remember, be creative, unique or humourous to increase your chances of winning. Good luck, and don't forget to rate the photos!

Please don't upload your photos until the clock ticks over to April! I'm going to be away, so I wanted to post the contest early. This also gives people a chance to get thinking or get started, but again, please don't upload your creations just yet.

Cheers
Mike

I just downloaded some  ;D. The logo's a bit grainy though, does anyone have any tips on how to ungrain it?

I have the same problem, don't know how to fix it though. Also, don't you think this one should have it's own album?

I've cleaned up the Photo album and moved all the March entries into their own sub-album. Upload away!

They work now,

Mike probably disabled the links to your pics earlier


It's tough being paranoid and having someone out to get you   >:D
There’s nothing more maddening than debating someone who doesn’t know history, doesn’t read books, and frames their myopia as virtue. The level of unapologetic conjecture I’ve encountered lately isn’t just frustrating, it’s retrogressive, unprecedented, and absolutely terrifying.

I just added the colour version of the black and white Ambulance picture, I originally added... with the army.ca logo on it. It's now our official Med Team vehicle  :) hope it worked alright.. have never modified a picture to add something to it like that! Going to go over and see if it worked now! That was fun trying that out. Neat idea Mike!

Anyone have a pic of Bobbit? I wanted to put his head on there instead of the leaf and sword.
