Essence of Fennboree Photo Contest

THE CONTEST IS CLOSED
WINNERS HAVE BEEN CHOSEN
PLEASE SEE THE ENTRY PAGES TO SEE WHO WONfenborebanner

This is a photo contest that everyone who attended Fennboree can participate in.  All you have to do is submit a picture that captures the essence of Fennboree. It might be a photo of Tim Nobody wearing his floating hat, or of Desertphile dancing on the hilltop, Sacha orchestrating the World Famous Forrest Fenn Trivia Contest, Ming showing off her booties or Cynthia sipping a mimosa by the golden light of the evening campfire. It might be a moody morning mist over a field of tidy porta-pottys or a foodscape of the greatest pies ever made.

Whatever moment it was, I hope you snapped it and will enter it in this contest because that’s what it’s all about. It can be a photo from your phone or the 8×10 digital back on your Sinar camera.

Submit your photo. Give it a short caption and a by-line and our razor sharp team of judges will choose three winners..

We’ll post them up for everyone to appreciate as they come in. So the Entry Page will be updated daily.

 

RULES

  1. One submission per person. You can only submit one photo so pick your best one.
  2. You had to attend Fennboree2016 and take the photo while there. No fair submitting a photo you didn’t take on June 3rd, 4th or 5th 2016.
  3. The photo you enter should be at least 1000 pixels wide so that it’s big enough for us to appreciate in all its glorious detail.
  4. No digital trickery please. You can crop your photo if you’d like, but other than that please don’t tamper with it. Other than cropping it should be the way your camera recorded it. This contest is about capturing the essence of the event and is not about anyone’s photoshopping abilities.
  5. If a photo is not suitable for all eyes or appears to be an invasion of someone’s privacy it will not be posted or entered.

 

HOW TO ENTER

  2. Subject line of your email should be Photo Contest Entry
  3. Make sure you include a 10 word or less caption for your photo and a by-line. (for instance: “Forrest Eating Pie” by Tesuque. This caption has three words. The by-line is not counted as part of the caption.)

CLOSING DATE

PRIZES

There are three prizes. A prize will be awarded to each of the top three winners as determined by the judges. The prizes are three large, wall mount type maps of the search area. One is from the Too Far To Walk book and two are the Fennboree III Maps that came out this year. Each map has been signed by Forrest and each map has an original doodle created by Forrest. Each doodle is different and depicts a scene of searchers discovering Indulgence. These are unique maps and will make wonderful collectables. The maps without the doodles sold for $100ea…what are they worth with the doodles???

JUDGES

There are three judges; ThomasD, Pest and Goofy.

Judging will take place over the 24hrs following the close of the contest.

Judges will be looking for the top three photos that best represent the Essence of Fennboree. Two of the judges attended Fennboree 2016 and one judge did not. They each bring their own unique perspective as to what determines the Essence of Fennboree. Their decision will be final and no bribe could possibly be large enough to sway their decision. However you are welcome to try.

Remember, this contest is about the photo but a great caption will certainly help.

 

POSTING THE ENTRIES

Dal will post entries as soon as possible after receiving them. They will be made available for all to see on this blog

 

Please direct any questions about the contest to me and good luck!!!!!

Break out your instamatics, polaroids, holgas and flip cameras. Load up your tri-x, fujicolor and agfachrome. Grab your flashbulbs and light meters and bring everything else you’ll need to capture the essence of Fennboree with your favorite camera.

This is a photo contest that everyone who attends Fennboree can participate in.  All you have to do is take a picture that captures the essence of Fennboree. It might be a photo of Forrest wearing a raccoon hat and cleaning up at marbles, or of Desertphile riding in on his favorite pony, “Old Scout” or Sacha wearing all her Fennboree gear at once or Cynthia sipping Mai Tais by the golden light of the evening campfire. It might be a moody morning mist over a field of tidy turquoise tents or a foodscape of the greatest smore ever made. Maybe it will be a selfie of Goofy arm wrestling a bear for the last bowl of lime jello.

Whatever moment it is, grab a photo of that precise point in time and enter it in this contest because that’s what it’s all about. It can be a photo from your phone or the 8×10 digital back on your Sinar camera.
