DIY Camera Photo Contest
I recently made a purchase of one of these bad boys:-
It is an awesome, crappy plastic toy camera that you just happen to have to build yourself. While waiting for it to arrive (I still am) I was struck by the idea that this has the makings of an excellent MarkVersus challenge. So, time to throw down. I am issuing the MarkVersus challenge to build your own camera and take a better picture than me.
The challenge shall work as follows:-
- Buy one of the camera kits from the site above (or the other stockists of the same/similar). It’s only £11 and if you know anyone else who wants to enter the competish there are literally pence to be saved if you buy them in bulk.
- Build the camera. Extra points if you document the construction.
- Buy some film. Remember film?
- Take photos. Get them developed. Get them scanned.
- Email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. They will be posted to cameracontest.markversus.co.uk.
- The contest will run until 1 August 2011 (to give everyone a good bit of time and sunshine).
- I will come up with a way of picking the winner and a prize nearer then.
I understand if people are a little reserved about entering given my current winning form but I encourage everyone to join in and bring your friends. At worst we get some really awesome, crappy photographs. See here for some examples.
