PHOTO CONTEST INFORMATION

Depraved Nation is hosting our annual Photo Contest that will run simultaneously with The 100 Block Fashion Fair! Participating stores have donated TONS of prizes to be distributed to the winners once they are selected. This contest will award a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prize package.

Here’s how it works:

۞ The photo contest will run a bit different this year, please read through all of the rules & regulations before joining.

۞ Entrants will be required to submit a Notecard to Heather Smithson with the following information:

*Name of the person entering the photo contest
*A styling NC listing all items worn in the photo you’re submitting
*A Full Perm photo you would like to enter
*The entry fee of 349L$ (your transaction information should be included with your NC)

۞ In lieu of voting, we are charging a one time entry fee to cover the expense of this contest. We feel this is the best way to ensure the contest winners are based on photo quality and style versus who can TP in the most friends. This is NOT a popularity contest or a contest that will collect L$ for votes.

۞ Once the board is set-up your photo will be added to our flickr pool, by us.

۞ Participating designers will be asked to vote on the photo’s to determine our 3 winners. Voting will be made by designers participating in The 100 Block Event ONLY. There will be no charge for voting.

۞ Photos will remain on display @ The 100 Block SIM until the winners are determined. At the time winners are announced, we will return all photo boards with the exception of the winners and the winner boards will stay on the sim until the event ends (April 30).

The winners will be announced at The 100 Block SIM during our closing party. This event will feature a live DJ / Performer and will be held on April 28 at 7 PM SLT.

This contest is intended for all residents in SL, not only those with computer software which can enhance an image. Straight screenshots are allowed.
Ready for the Rules???

۞ While using photoshop or similar software outside of SL is allowed it is not necessarily encouraged. Designers will be looking for photo concept, clothing/outfit style, and overall composition. Heavily editing photos will not increase your chances of winning.

۞ Each photo should be focused on style, design and quality. We are looking for an artistic aspect with these photos.

۞ Each entrant should be wearing / using at least ONE exclusive release from The 100 Block event.

۞ Each photo board has a NC giver inside of it, once your board has been set up, others will be able to click it and view your styling NC.

۞ There will only be ONE winner announced per entry. Mulitple entry’s should not use the same photo OR the same photo board.

۞ Entrants are allowed to purchase only ONE board per photo.

۞ Entrants may purchase up to 3 separate boards.

۞ Participants submitting more than 1 photo for entry into the contest will only be eligible to receive ONE prize package.

In the event that more than one photo from an individual is chosen as one of the top 3 photos, ONLY the highest voted photo will be used when determining the winner.

۞ Prizes will be distributed to ONE winner per placement (we will not divide up prizes for you if you decide to take a photo with a friend or partner).

۞ We will issue prizes ONLY to the person who purchased the photo contest board.

***Contributing designers will be given a NC with the winners names, it is at their discretion if they choose to issue the prizes to any other avatar, aside from the winner.***

Jewell in Walnut & Mr. X plus G-DUBS & Photo Contest

Previously posted @ Perceptions Sita Writer.

On some nights, it is best to stop thinking about the past, and all that has been won and lost.  On nights like this, finding an exotic new skin, called Jewell in Walnut by October 4Seasons Skins uplifts the spirit.

Jewell in Walnut is a “gem” of a skin in a rich sensual mocha tone that comes with 5 different make-up options and slink appliers. For added sizzle pair this skin with an eye catching and unforgettable Shape from October 4 Season Skins, you won’t believe just how good you can look!  Mr. X had to take a cold shower!

The new release by G-DUBS is a breezy silk pantsuit called Parteee Time Jumpsuit in Purple. The rainbow colors of the silk top compliments the dark silk texture of the pants making this perfect for a formal or casual “parteee”!

The scent of jasmine on the late night Nile breeze and the crescent moon reminds me of desire and real love…and one thousand different things — and oh so many images.

The Nutcracker ~ An Arcade Photography Contest Entry

"Before long, it was time for all the guests to leave. Marie reluctantly said good night to her nephew and went to bed but she couldn't sleep. She kept thinking about her Nutcracker doll. She slipped out of bed and tiptoed downstairs where the Nutcracker was still resting on his little bed. She cradled the Nutcracker in her arms and fell asleep on the sofa in the parlor. 

Suddenly, Drosselmeier appeared out of the darkness. He gently took the Nutcracker from Marie and fixed it. Just as he was placing it back in her arms, she started to wake up. The lights on the tree began to flicker and Drosselmeier appeared on top of the grandfather clock, flapping his arms like a giant owl…"
