Post BritNerf 2nd Anniversary Photo Competition.  Reply with quote
The party just keeps on going.

The BritNerf 2nd Anniversary Photo Competition is a simple one. All you’ll need is a blaster, a camera and a ‘famous’ landmark.

What more is there to say? Simply take a photo of yourself nerfing at a famous landmark, post it below and you’re in with a chance to win an Elite Rapidstrike CS-18 or one of two Elite Hailfires courtesy of Hasbro UK.

A good competition wouldn’t be complete without a few rules now would it?

    Entrants need to submit their picture in this topic. Only one picture per member but group photos will be fine. Please note if submitting a group photo, you will have to share the prize.

    The closing date for the competition is Monday 9th September 2013 at which point this topic will be locked and we will not be able to accept any more entries.

    The Winner will get to take he first pick from the prize kitty. Runners up will get to choose from what is left.

    By its very nature, this competition requires you to be showing your blasters in public. For this reason your photo must contain stock (at least externally) blasters or those with light cosmetic mods only. Any painted blasters or heavily modified shells will be disqualified. Remember, this is just for a bit of fun. It’s not a modding competition. There is already a place for you to show off your modding skills.

    Your chosen landmark must be well known, at least in your area. If you don’t live near anything interesting, points will be awarded for obscure landmarks. In this case you will need to submit an explanation of your landmark and why it is ‘famous’. We will be researching your claims so no fibbing.

    The winners will be selected by the admin team using methods too complicated for even us to understand. We do know that we are looking for awesome. Big landmarks, huge arsenals and vintage/rare blasters all add awesome points. Your picture needs to stand out.

    International members are welcome to enter the competition however, will ask that you make a contributuion to the shipping fees for your prize.

    Pictures must be clean!

    No pictures of fruit (Mogul, that means you!)


Go forth and Nerf! You could win an awesome prize!

Extended the closing date.

I figured more people will get the chance to take a photo over the summer holidays. You will notice that the closing date is already an important one in the Nerf calender.

Working on my entry but if I win, can I get the Hailfires instead? You know, on account of having the first RS carcass in the UK. :p

it is, and here it is in all it's glory  Smile

St Mary and All Saints, the crooked spire church, was built in the late 13th Century and finished around 1360. It’s the largest church in Derbyshire. The Spire stands 228 feet from the ground and leans 9 feet 5 inches from its true centre. The Spire was built straight and the reason that it 'twisted' may be the amount of green timber used during its construction. Then 32 tons of lead tiles were placed on top

Aweomse photo contest entry, with some really cool information]

Huh, so it's a Church and not a cathedral then? Awesome - I see it from the train whenever I go to see the in-laws up North. Never actually visited the church itself, however. Very Happy

*returns to plotting his own photo entry - you're going to have get up early to beat me :p*

A quick read of the rules will make things clear for you.

Being one of the judges, I can't win this competition... But that doesn't mean I can't enter!



On the roof of the Olympic Stadium in London this weekend where I was working on the UK Athletics anniversary games.

If you want a chance to win a Rapidstrike or a Hailfire you really need to enter this comp. It's really easy.

Tut, tut, goofing off work like that! I still maintain I'd prefer the Hailfire if I won... :p

EDIT

Quoted pic removed for the sake of being tidy.

Right, with just under a month to go I have decided to move the goalposts.

If I'm honest, the enthusiasm for this comp has been less than I expected so I think it's time we changed things to make it even easier to enter.

We will now accept any pictures of you nerfing. The winner will be the most original picture that stands out the most. I see a lot of you are classic car enthusiasts so fill your car with blasters and take a picture for a chance to win. If you don't have anything interestting and can't be bothered to go outside, dress up, pull a silly face, strap a Vulcan to your dog, do anything, just post a picture. Worried about people seeing your face? Blur it out, cover it up or wear a massive hat! Your face is not important, your support is!

I can't make it much simpler than that. Come on, show your support to the community and the forum!

The second update is regarding the prizes.

I have had a few emails about the prizes so I have decided to change that aswell. Now the prizes will all go into a kitty and the winners will get to choose their prize. First place will get the first pick and runners up will then get to choose in turn.

I will also be adding some more prizes to the pot so there will be even more chances to win!

Now no one has an excuse not to enter.

I look forward to seeing your entries.

So would another landmark based pic be considered unoriginal? Being a student (read: does everything last minute Razz) I was going to go out end of this month when I've got a bit of free time, and access to a car.

I for one am kind of glad for the rule change's as I did not have a clue about landmarks near me that anyone would notice, but I did have a good idea for a piccy else where, I shall now endeavour to get one in.

I don't want to sound a grumpy old git on this, but to change the rules 1/2 way through is a little unfair to people already entered into any comp, I'd like to quote " If you don’t live near anything interesting, points will be awarded for obscure landmarks"
