I've never hosted a photo contest before, but am going to give it a shot. This is Homer. http://www.coloring.ws/animals/horses/horse1.gif He has had a hard life and is looking for a little adventure and he wants you to help him. All photos in this contest must have Homer in them. Print him out, color him and show him a good time. (If you have ever done the "Flat Stanley" thing in school, it's along those lines.)
Here are the contest rules:
1. Homer must be in the photo(s) entered.
2. Photo-shopping him in an existing photo is not allowed.
3. Homer must be colored, dressed or decorated in some way or that photo will not be eligible.
4. Deadline is Sept. 11 All entries submitted after 10 p.m. On Sept. 11 will not count.
Here are the contest categories: (please specify the category with your entry. Only one photo per category allowed per person, but you may enter as many categories as you wish.)
1. Homer's Travels - if you're planning a vacation/trip soon, take Homer with you! We'd love to see him sunning on the beach, hiking in the mountains, touring a city, etc.
2. Home and Me - a creative photo of you and Homer together
3. Homer and My Horse - a creative photo of Homer and your horse
4. Most Creative Homer - this category will solely be judged on how creative Homer is colored/dressed.
5. Just For Fun - anything goes in this category that doesn't fit in the other categories.
Judging will be done by myself beginning the day after the deadline. I will do my best to have the results in by the end of the weekend. I would like to offer a prize of some kind for each category's first place winner, but haven't figured out what yet. Good luck to everyone and have fun!
