    Here is the place to post any questions you may have regarding any aspect of the contest.

    I will be available most of the time although Ed (tootsall) will also be able to help in this area.

    Yee HAW!
    Most of you now know how to host photos and have a service that does so. If you do not, then send your pictures to me at [email protected] and I will put them up into a Photobucket account that was set up for last year's contest. I will then email return to you the link so that you can "paste" it into your entry. We have lots of storage space in the hosting account so don't be shy about sending large photos... they'll just "sharpen up" when they are sized to fit the entry page.

    EDIT: Please send me a PM when you have sent the photo so that I know to check that email account...which is one that I do not use for "regular" correspondence.

    I am in the process of making the prize ;-)

    I am afraid i cannot tell you yet what the prize is as it is a surprise. :cool:

    I can tell you one thing though, it will be music to your ears :lol:

    I promise to show the prize as soon as possible! i will not hold out on you all okay, i just want it to be right when finished.

    I hope that this does not deter you from entering the contest Resonator, the prize will be cool trust me.

    Best Wishes

    For the funny photo, does it have to be "My" trumpet, or can it be someone elses?

    And then I might not end up doing this, but can the picture be photoshopped to some degree?

    And then what if our model is too large to send? Or what if a model of a trumpet is made of something perishable?

    Thanks!

    It doesn't matter whose horn you take a picture of. As far as "photoshopping" is concerned, that's a no-no. It has to be a photo such that you could provide, if required, a legitimate print or negative. You could adjust brightness, etc. to "fix" it, but nothing like (for example) a horn coming out of the south end of a north-bound horse...unless the horse allowed you to do so and then stood still long enough for a photo to be taken.

    I'd refer you to last year's contest for samples of some of the funny photos; they were all "posed" but certainly not "digitally faked".

    Okay

    I think now that you know that the model would have to be sent to me should you win, then if it were me i would not make it 5 mtrs long by 8 mtrs wide or the UPS guy's are gonna kill you on shipping costs :lol:

    Sorry just had to say that :oops:

    I mean of course make it so that it could reasonably be sent in a box or carton to England.
    It is only the winner who sends to us, not everyone.

    All the best

    prize= "eclipse made something" minus cost of shipping your homemade instrument? eh id say its still worth it!

    i know it is your decision, leigh, but i just wanted to plead the case against photoshopping. that takes half the fun and work out of making the picture for those who are adept and have the programs to do that stuff. But maybe im just a little biased since i dont have the programs to do it or the know-how ;).

    thank you leigh for putting on this contest and giving away free ( :shock: ) horns! (or whatever it is this year.)
