Visiting Oz? Send Pictures!

Dorothy had her chance to return to Oz and now so do you! Come and celebrate two years of Magic of Oz in Second Life by doing the Over the Rainbow Hunt. Once you have finished the Over the Rainbow Hunt and thoroughly explored both the Magic of Oz and Ozimals sims in search of hidden Magic Pearls you will be in the perfect frame of mind to enter the 2nd Oziversary: Oz Revisited Photo Contest where you have the chance to show us Oz through your eyes. What special memories do you have of Oz during the past two years? What new spots have you discovered that have become instant favorites? Pull out your camera and capture a story to share with us. They say a picture is worth a thousand words so start writing your Oz adventures today!

Oh, and if you are wondering, the Ozimals Bunnies are so excited about the celebrations taking place for the 2nd anniversary of Magic of Oz in Second Life that they convinced Candy and Malk to give 1st place prizes of Ozimals Bunny Warren Packs to the winners of the Oz Revisited Photo Contest!

The 2nd Oziversary: Oz Revisited Photo Contest is brought to you by the Magic of Oz sim.

Conditions of Entry:

1. You must purchase & feature at least one product available from Magic of Oz or Ozimals sim merchants participating in the 2nd Oziversary Over the Rainbow Hunt. Use of the demo items will not be accepted

2. You must take the picture at the Magic of Oz or Ozimals sims and it must be obvious that this is where you took the picture. The picture can be taken anywhere on either sim so explore and find the spot that speaks to you. :)

3. You must be a member of the Magic of Oz Flickr Group.

4. Entrants are limited to a maximum of two entries. Only one picture from any one resident can win a place (i.e. 1st or 2nd prize).

5. By entering this competition you agree to your pictures being used in future by the owners of the Magic of Oz sim for any promotional purposes and to the picture/s being on display in world after the competition.

6. Pictures must be uploaded to the Magic of Oz Flickr Group and contain the following information: your complete name (Second Life name that is), the product or products belonging to Oz or Ozimals merchants in the picture, and the category you wish your picture to be judged in: Photographic or Post Processing.

7. Entries uploaded after Midnight SLT time on the 21th of November, 2010 will not be entered in the contest.

There are TWO categories, but you may enter only one of them, so choose carefully:

Category 1: Photographic.

This category is for those who do not wish to or do not use image editing software such as Photoshop, Gimp or Paintshop etc. This category is there for those who rely solely on in world lighting, set, costume, shot perspective etc.

You may however crop your picture but that is the extent of any photo manipulation. Those entering this category who are found to have not kept by these simple and clear guide lines will be disqualified.

Photographic Category Prizes:

1st Prize: Ozimals Bunny Warren Pack
2nd Prize: Prize package containing various gifts from MoO and Ozimals merchants

Category 2: Post Processing.

This category is for those who wish to use such image editing software as Gimp, Photoshop or Paintshop etc. Basically the rules here are "if we can still make out that you are at Oz and have a product from a participating Oz or Ozimals merchant, you're good to go." Although of course, less can be more.

Post Processing Category Prizes:

1st Prize: Ozimals Bunny Warren Pack
2nd Prize: Prize package containing various gifts from MoO and Ozimals merchants

Winners will be notified by November 30.

Please notecard Elizabeth Tinsley with any questions. Have fun and enjoy the Magic of Oz!
