Unless I'm mistaken, the contest is officially closed.



A quick collage I put together of all the entries, super great idea on UKNerfWars part to bring the community together! I'm privileged to be a part of it.

I think Big_Poppa_Nerf's submission was the best  Razz

You are indeed mistaken. The competition closes tonight at midnight (BST).

That leaves 8 hours for everyone to get their entries in. Good luck everybody!

A super late entry (thanks for flagging up the last few hours still to run!)

We call it - 'Watch your six!'

To explain this is a picture of me taking a picture of UKNerfWar, taking a picture of me, using the new CAM ECS _12 #nerfieinception

Looking through the thread, there's already some pics that people aren't holding the camera in.
So here we go!

Post And the Winner is... Reply with quote
Scouts and I had a video chat last night to discuss the winner and the runners up. I thought it would take an age to reach a consensus but as it happened, we had both secretly picked the same photos.

So, without any further ado, the winner of the BritNerf 3rd anniversary photo competition is...

Spoiler:


Big_Poppa_Nerf



This is a really fun image and is the only one actually featuring flying foam. We loved that he took darts to the face in a bid to try and win and we commend the sacrifice. The subtle irony of the picture on the wall is also a stroke of genius (I'm sure it was intentional right?) but in real life, I'm sure his home is a wonderful place to be.

Congratulations Big_Poppa_Nerf



Now, the runner up prizes.

This was a little harder to decide. Scouts and I had one clear favourite between us so we shall start with that.

The first runner up is...

Spoiler:

Blastaway.eu



You can always trust a crazy German to come up with the goods and apparently, they don't come more crazy than this guy. Anyone who can rock goggles and a swimming cap and make it look good is a winner in my book. The darts were just the icing on the cake for us and really helped the entry to stand out.

Wir gratulieren!



Next, things started getting tricky. We simply couldn't agree on the final runner up... so we decided not to...

Our second and third runners up are...

Spoiler:

Aldegar



Aldegar's family portrait is not only a beautiful picture, but it shows that Nerf is fun for the whole family. Although it's not actually a selfie, we simply couldn't ignore the fact that Aldegar's family managed to capture the true nature of NERFing.

Well done buddy.



and...

Spoiler:

Mante 135



Mante's entry reminds me of what it is like going into my attic. I'm sure most of us have cupboard space crammed full of Nerf. If you do, I'm sure you can recognize the fear of opening the door to a tidal wave of darts and blasters flowing all over the floor. This photo makes me think of all the blasters stuffed in closets across the world and for that, Mante135 wins a prize.



Congratulations to all of you. You will be contacted about your winnings over the next few days.

Special thanks to everybody who entered. If you want to hear what we thought of all the entries, check out the album on the BritNerf Facebook Page. We will be commenting on all of the photos over the next few days so be sure to keep checking.

This year we saw so many great entries and it is wonderful to see our little community growing. Next year will be a very busy year for the community and with a couple of massive, high profile wars in the planning, I'm sure we will see an unprecedented amount of growth. I hope to see twice as many entries so keep up the good work.

I love you all.

Sniffs in the sweet smell of Britnerf Reaper goodness......

Cheers guys. I am chuffed, well and proper chuffed. There are some people I'd like to thank......

But they're not as important as me so it can wait.


All joking aside, I'd just like to thank UKNerfWar, Scouts, Oldnoob and Boff for making this happen. I have really enjoyed being part of this community and hope that I continue to do so.

Love you too UKNW. And all the britnerf guys that make this forum an awesome place to be.

I actually started to feel nervous as I hit the spoiler button.

Now it's over I'll have to post the rejected photos, including the HvZ Ground Zero shot I took!

Your grace and modesty just made me spit tea at my laptop. For that, I think we should insist you upload a video of your acceptance speech when you receive your blaster.

SPEECH!

In seriousness, congratulations, BPN. I hope to face the prize blaster on the battlefield some day. Well, by face I mean look at from a damned good distance away. Razz

Congrats!!!!!! (I thought the covert Pink Wafer might have helped me Very Happy)

I will relish charging at it - because I have no sanity.

Congratulations BPN. I will get the blaster out to you for the weekend or start of next week at the latest, do you want the battery pack and charger as well?

Enjoy your prize and remember: fully automatic is great for room clearance. I'm given to understand that may become relevant to you. Razz

All being well with the submission, the Britnerf RS will be there!!

At what post mark did i become a 'Veteran'. Is anyone else freaked out that that happened at the time I won a heavily modded rapidstrike?
