    [SIZE=5]VOTE HERE FOR YOUR FAV PHOTO[/SIZE]


    [FONT=Comic Sans MS][SIZE=5][COLOR=Blue]http://www.buckscoop.com.au/images/birthday2contest.gif

    Here we are at 2 years old, just shy of 8000 Buckscoopers and 64,000 posts in the forum and we wanted to do something special for you all this month. So.....


    We have a 24” Ultrasharp Widescreen monitor from Dell in our Buckscoop party loot bag.
    Want to take it home?

    [COLOR=Black][SIZE=4]Good… then I have a challenge for you[/SIZE][/COLOR]

    [COLOR=Red]Here is what you need to do:[/COLOR]

    [FONT=Comic Sans MS][SIZE=5][COLOR=Blue]1. Grab a copy of the Buckscoop Bargain Junky logo (HERE). You can print it out on whatever you want. Make sure to rotate the image 90 degrees so that it fits an A4 sheet perfectly (does not have to be A4 size though :)). You can of course make it bigger or smaller if you want. Or as many as you want.
    2. Now to hatch a cunning plan . You need to find somewhere fun. A place where your logo is going to grab peoples attention
    3. Take a happy snap of your logo in situ (yes you can be in the shot if you really want to)
    4. Post up your photo in Buckscoop Birthday Photo Thread
    5. The winner is the photo that receives the most votes from its fellow Buckscoopers
    [/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]


    [B]AND the prizes[/B]

    [COLOR=Red][SIZE=5]First place[/SIZE][/COLOR][COLOR=Black][SIZE=4] the DELL 24" Ultrasharp Widescreen monitor[/SIZE][/COLOR]

    [SIZE="4"]And as always we have to have few rules:

    1. Nothing illegal please. That is the logo is not allowed to be displayed anywhere the police may have an issue with it being there
    2. Keep it clean. No pictures containing nudity, violence, swearing or generally nasty stuff. The photos will be removed and you will be disqualified from the competition.
    We will have absolute (but fair) discretion to chop anything that we think (in our opinion) is a bit dodge.
    3. The photo must be an original and no photo shopping allowed. Any photo even suspected of any form of enhancement will be disqualified
    4. Our decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into
    5. You must submit you picture to the Buckscoop Birthday thread before midnight Dst Sunday 2nd Nov
    6. Voting for the photos will close on Friday 7th November set with the winner announced in the forum On Friday 7th November 2008.
    7. The winner will be the photo that receives the highest number of votes from fellow Buckscoopers
    8. The voting will be closely monitored
    9. You can not vote for you own photo
    9. Only ONE ENTRY PER MEMBER
    10. The logo can be used as many times as you like in the your photo and the logos can be any size that you like. However, there must be one whole logo clearly seen in the photo.

    [COLOR="Blue"]Here I am again with some more info:

    Comp opens NOW but I figure we will not see any photos for a few days at least
    The voting with start Monday 13th (give you a few weeks to get up your piccies) ... or should I say the voting will open as it may not start if we don't have any pictures yet
    If you need any help with the printing of the logo or the posting in the forum then please put your virtual hand up and we can help you out

    Most importantly have fun :)[/COLOR]

    Can you get to the library queenshrew?

    Shouldn't cost that much ;)
  • AussieMarkMelb2008/10/01 09:49:27
    Hmm this looks pretty interesting! I may have to enter my first competition here.

    haha queenshrew I have a black and white printer too.

    It should cost about 30cents to a maximum of a dollar to print in colour.

    Whatever you do dont go to officeworks they are the most expensive option. Like lilpretzel suggested try a library, or a friend. The printing companies will charge you a few dollars just to access the file ($4-$5).

    Mark
  • queenshrew2008/10/01 09:57:04
    Yepp..I called up and checked with Office Works

    $5 to download it
    Plus $1.30 to print in A4 Colour

    :(
  • lilpretzel2008/10/01 10:02:42
    OMG!! What a rip OFF!!

    The library internet is free to use here in QLD you just need to pay for printing.

    Shame you don't live near me queenshrew ;)

    I will next year! :D

    So I guess I need to go and find a library near me... hehe

    I haven't been to a public/council library since I was a cute teenager ..only purpose of going to the library was to flirt with boys!

    Well than, I'll have to crack open the champagne :w00t:
  • queenshrew2008/10/01 10:55:20
    You'll have to drink my share too...!

    I can't hold my liquor :p

    Last time I sipped too much FREE champagne as a student at a fashion show and passed out during the show and apparently I snored... It was a very expensive show and I woke up in time to see the winner :p
  • AussieMarkMelb2008/10/01 12:20:15
    Queenshrew it would even be cheaper if you had someone else print it for you in colour and post it to you =p

    A friend or someone nice, or go knock on your neighbours door I am sure someone has a colour printer nearby.
  • queenshrew2008/10/01 12:57:39
    I reckon it's a good excuse to bug hubby for a new colour printer!

    Our old one died... or I should rephrase that.. I killed it cos I bought some el cheapo - (and apparently wrong) cartridges and it was incompatible and something went horribly wrong!!! I told hubby it died of its own accord..shhhh!

    I wish I bought the 'Brother' printer from officeworks when it was first posted on Buckscoop. I procrastinated and now it's no longer available! Doh!
  • AussieMarkMelb2008/10/01 14:16:52
    Oh that is unfortunate.

    I actually just remembered we do have a colour printer stashed away in our house, so let me know if you want me to print one out and mail it to you in the post :p
  • melissanj2008/10/01 16:07:13
    ooh...thinking....thinking.....ahhh i dont know what to do!!!
  • nod2008/10/01 17:11:23
    Maybe I should get the ball rolling :D .....
  • AussieMarkMelb2008/10/01 17:57:23
    Is it one entry per member?

    If it is we have to think carefully so we dont waste our only opportunity.

    We want you to be creative .. find that inner artist

    Yes it is only ONE entry per member .. thanks for the reminder :)
  • AussieMarkMelb2008/10/01 20:53:32
    hah thanks Nod,

    Yeah I was wondering if it was two entries then we can get practising or do one as a practise run.

    As it is one entry then Ill wait a few days and brainstorm =)

    Thanks.

    Can you confirm that the image must be no bigger than an A4 piece of paper as the instructions say make the image fit an A4 piece of paper. Sorry just want to be 100% sure.

    Also whether the logo can only be used once in the photo or if you can print out a couple to be used in the same photo. I assume it is one only.
  • nod2008/10/01 20:57:42
    The image can be as big as you like :) and you can use as many as you like
    Just that the image we have fits perfectly an A4 size when rotated 90%
  • nod2008/10/01 20:59:51
    Great questions too - the more the merrier :)

    Thanks Aussie for the kind offer..:D

    But I now have a colour printer! A very basic one, but it does work :D

    I went over to my friend's place to get her to print it for me but I ended up going home with her old one lol She even gave me all her extra brand new cartridges :o
  • MamaK2008/10/02 01:11:35
    such fun, love the comps you come up with :D

    One question, can it be a montage of shots or just the one image?
