2014 July Photo Contest Announced!
Entries Due August 1, 2014


I know that isn't actually supposed to be a greeting, 
but we have started saying it in place of 
Hello and Hola just to annoy everyone. ;-)

Today we announce a new photo contest!!!

The prize will be a $60 AG gift card to one lucky winner!

The theme is....dun dun dunnnnn:

"Dream World."

What is your doll's dream world?

Does she/he have a happy place in her imagination?

Or maybe a happy place in reality that is like a dream come true?

Does she/he have a dream she/he would like to carry out one day?

Does she/he have a favorite book that she/he likes to imagine herself in?

Or maybe even your doll had a dream while asleep and 
you want to construct a picture of her/him in it???

Or maybe even a nightmare if you want to make something scary!

Or perhaps a funny nightmare like opening the fridge to find only ketchup!

(We have that happen a lot....in reality...)

Be Creative Peeps!

If you want to know if your "Dream World" theme idea is legit -- just email us at nora.demington@gmail.com.

One picture entry per person.

Collages are okay, but sometimes they are hard to see visually, just fyi.

No youtube vids or vines. Just a single image my peeps.
Can be an Instagram pic if you wanna be a hipstah. ;-)

Entries Are Due August 1, 2014.

All entries should be sent to nora.demington@gmail.com.

We will be posting your pics on this blog:

The contest is open to anyone who wants to participate. 

Men, women.
Adults, children.
Elves, fairies.
Americans, Canadians, Australians, Japanese, Mexicans, Martians.

Anyone. Anyplace.

If you are younger than 18 years old, please get your parent or guardian's 
permission to participate.

There will be a week of reader voting after all of the photo entries have been loaded. 

Then Penny will be tallying all of the votes. 

From the top 50%, she'll pick one winner.

Penny's judging will be based upon several factors. 

They are ranked by order of importance:

1) Appropriateness to the Theme: "Dream World"

2) Quality of the Photography

3) Creativity of the Theme Idea

4) Complexity of the Photo's Set-Up

5) Creativity of the Image Composition

All images should be sent to nora.demington@gmail.com.

Images measuring 500 pixels wide or wider are best.

Try to make your images the best quality they can be.

What kind of dolls can be included in the photograph? Is it American Girl and AG-like dolls only, or are Ellowynes, Tonners, BJDs, etc. eligible, too?

Thank you for hosting this contest! It sounds like a lot of fun, and I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with. :)

One more question: How much Photoshopping is allowed, say, for adding backgrounds, effects, etc.? :)

Nora and Maple said...

Any type of doll you want to use for the photo contest is allowed.

AGs, AG-like, AG minis, Ellowynes, Tonners, BJDs, etc. -- all of those are eligible. Any dolls!

Any amount of Photoshopping is allowed. That is up to you!

Can we included a caption to go with our picture? Like, underneath it?

Thank you!

Nora and Maple said...

Yes we highly recommend a caption so we know what your 'Dream World' image is about. :-)
