Countdown to 100,000 Members Photo Contest

In less than 2 months, Dream.In.Code will welcome it's 100,000th member! To celebrate, we're giving away a Canon - EOS Digital Rebel XT 8.0MP Digital SLR Camera!

Posted Image

How to Win:

All you have to do is take a picture with you and the words "Dream In Code - 100,000 Members!" . The most creative/funny/interesting picture (judged by me and some of the DIC Team) wins the camera.

So grab your camera, make a sign, and take a picture. Remember you have to be somewhere in the photo (you don't have to include your face if you don't want to), and so do the words "Dream In Code - 100,000 Members"

No Photo Editing Allowed, All Photos Must Be Original. Don't Add The Text After You Take The Photo! Write it on a piece of paper, print it on a banner, write it on your car, but don't photoshop it in after the fact!


How to Enter/Where to Upload:

We're going to run this contest through Flickr so I can make sure all the photos are accessible at the end of the contest (last time many were broken and we couldn't see them). Here's what to do:

Contest Ends:

When the 100,000th member registers (Member # 100417) (Probably 40-75 days from now)

Current Entries


Created with Admarket's flickrSLiDR.


More Info on Camera:

The rules:

1. NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. The contest is open to all registered members of www.DreamInCode.net.

2. To enter the contest each participant must have a valid, working email address in their profile.

3. A maximum of ten (10) entries may be submitted per user. An entry is any original, non-edited photo with the user and the phrase "Dream In Code - 100,000 Members" in the photo. Entries must not infringe upon the copyright of any other original work. MEDIAGROUPONE/DREAM.IN.CODE does not assume responsibility for phone, technical, network, electronic, computer hardware or software failures of any kind, misdirected, stolen, incomplete, garbled, or delayed internet computer transmissions. MEDIAGROUPONE/DREAM.IN.CODE reserves the right to remove or disqualify photos that do not follow the Terms of Service. This includes photos that are deemed inappropriate.

4. This contest begins Tuesday, June 10 2008 and ends when the 100,000th member registers (member # 100417). Odds of winning will be determined by the total number of entries received. Entrance eligibility will be based on the timestamp of when the 100,000th member registers and when the entry was uploaded.

5. The Prize: Canon® EOS Digital Rebel XT 8.0MP Digital SLR Camera

There will be no substitution of prizes and no cash will be awarded in lieu of merchandise or awards, except by MEDIAGROUPONE/DREAM.IN.CODE's sole election due to prize unavailability.

6. Representatives of MEDIAGROUPONE/DREAM.IN.CODE will select the winner based on creativity. Decisions are final on all matters relating to this contest. If MEDIAGROUPONE/DREAM.IN.CODE is unable to locate a given winner, an alternate winner will be selected. The winner will be notified by email.

Cool contest. Nice to see that you guys have managed to make such a large community board :)

I may enter, but at this point I don't really need another camera...

SkyHawk, as I believe has been stated numerous times, you are a marketing genius!

I find the great irony to be that we have a graphic design board and no photography board, but we have to send an unaltered photo and not a graphic superimposed over a photo. hmm...

well I think the reason is.. it will be an advantage to those who are in graphics design to just edit the photo and modify it.. :blink:

This is a fair competition.. all you need is actual creativity... no computers allowed.. lmao.. :blink: :blink:

Guess I might be participating.. :blink:

We used to have a photography forum, but no one used it, so it got rolled into graphics.

Alumni except for my brother are eligible (family exclusion).

Remember, if you don't have a digital camera. Go guy a $2 disposable and have the pictures developed on CD then upload them.

You can upload up to 10 photos, so take your time and get some creative ones going.

Here's a look at our last photo competition so you can see who won and what kind of pics people submitted: http://www.dreaminco...wtopic15481.htm

Yesterday, 245 new members joined DIC. That number may go up, it may go down. If it continues, this will be a 30 day competition. If it drops, it may take 60 days.

Have fun with it. I'll be uploading my own pic sometime soon.
