============================================= RESTRICTIONS - PLEASE READ CAREFULLY - Last Updated July 19, 2011 @ 11:00AM PST Updates signified with
entries per person. No collages of photos into one image. If submitting two entries, they must be uploaded separately.
Limit ONE landmark
spot only (Please explain landmark under Artist Description). NO CRAFTS/ARTWORK
-- You MUST either use the official, unaltered
print-out mask(s) or the Official
StupidFox Plush (If you have one), OR note me for clarification or if you want to try/suggest something else. *I know the masks say you can draw a mouth on it; but this will not be allowed for this particular contest. You can alter the size though. *Hint:
YOU MAY use the StupidFox mask in any way as long as it is in the photo as a main subject (aside from the landmark). But you may NOT draw your own mask or draw on the official mask in any way. Closeups of landmarks are OK
. (For example, if it is a large tower that will not fit in the entire photo while showing StupidFox, you may crop the landmark to one section. As long as we can still tell what/where it is
) -- Consider your composition. DO NOT
just snap a picture of your-masked-self or a StupidFox Plush standing idly in front of a landmark. Entries like this will be added to the collection, but only the ones with some creativity or thought
will be considered for judging. DO NOT use any Digital, Photoshop or (Built-in) Camera Filters, effects, airbrushing, drawings-over-photo, or sparkles
. YOU MAY
use Programs/Photoshop to alter lighting/contrast/levels, censor logos, censor faces, clean up images, minor touch-ups. DO NOT Digitally add or Photoshop a StupidFox into any photo in any way
. You must take a picture of StupidFox ( or yourself) at the actual landmark. Photoshopped images will automatically be shredded by beavers
Landmark must be an actual place. No imaginary Kingdom of Bunnies. YOU MAY
add other foxes/accessories/animals/etc in the picture-- as long as StupidFox and the Landmark are still clearly in view. The mask CANNOT be modified in any way, but your outfit can be! Theme Parks or Fairgrounds do not count as landmarks (Due to Copyrights).
The same goes for restaurants/malls/parking lots/your creepy neighbor's house/etc. Convention Centers
are okay; just put a link to an official website or wikipedia article
Schools/University Locations do not count as landmarks in this contest. (Due to Privacy). Community Market Places / Tourist Towns / Small Towns / Tourist Attractions / National Parks / Community Farms or Ranches
as long as they are not PRIVATELY OWNED by someone (this includes anything owned by yourself or your family). It would be best if there were a town center or something significant in the specific town that you can represent in your photo. In this case, please also include a third-party Article/Official Website/Google Map to the location. (Examples: Dursley, Solvang, Citywalk/Hollywood, Lake Michigan, etc) If unsure, please note me with the name of the location and link. PLEASE DO NOT go to any dangerous places/locations or put yourself in dangerous situations
. StupidFox isn't the most reliable hero.
============================================= What if you don't live next to any famous landmarks?
Any "Tourist Infested Area" works! You can look up your hometown on the internet and see if there are any Tourist/Travel Spots near you.
When uploading, you can write a short description describing the landmark or what it represents. You can also add a link to any information page or Wikipedia article. You may enter any previously taken photos if you already took a picture of StupidFox by a landmark/tourist spot/famous statue or artwork. You may enter the contest if the area has been done before
