NEW PRIZES BEING OFFERED FOR CONTEST WINNERS
We've just added some new and exciting prizes to the current AGWPJA Q1 '08 contest prize line-up:
Members who place first through fifth will receive a 4GB Sandisk Extreme IV Compact Flash card. In total, 30 of these CF cards will be awarded!
"We've been working with digital capture for over a decade and have always trusted the Extreme compact flash cards from SanDisk. We each carry 80GB's of the
Extreme IV cards and have never experienced a card failure, never! What most shooters don't realize is that using the fastest cards out there not only clears your
buffer quicker but also gives you blazing downloads."
- Anne Farrar-Stefanchik
All first place winning members from each category will also receive a copy of the Totally Rad! Photoshop Action Mix.
From speeding up your workflow, to creating dramatic looks that you canít get anywhere else, the Totally Rad Action Mix has you covered. Give your images a boost with
a tried and true set of tools that play well together. Gain unprecedented flexibility over the look of your images, and escape canned looks. Create your own recipe
that speaks to your vision as a photographer.
"When a client chooses a JVS Signature Print, a one of kind masterpiece, the magic starts. "I literally own hundreds of actions and I've written a few of my own
over the years, but nothing meshes better with my shooting style like the Totally Rad actions!" - Joseph Victor Stefanchik
All first place winning members from each category will also receive a $100 gift certificate from BorrowLenses to use toward camera gear and lens rentals.
BorrowLenses is one of the largest online camera gear and lens rental stores in the U.S.
They will work with you on pretty much anything as long it is reasonable. If you need special arrangements, they are there for you! Whether you need to rent a lens for
a destination wedding or a camera body for the weekend, they can provide it for you. If you need to reserve a special lens for a wedding, they will save one just for
you. Simply place the order and put the date you need it by in the notes section; they will take care of the rest.
BorrowLenses tests and cleans every camera and lens before it is sent to you. You don't need to do anything before you can start using the gear.
"The BorrowLenses rental experience went very smoothly. I needed an extra body for a remote camera project I was working on. Everything arrived clean and in excellent+
condition. The whole process was great and I will definitely be using them again in the future." - David Roberts
CONTEST RULE #11 UPDATED
We've recently updated rule #11 of the AGWPJA contest rules. Images can no longer be entered into both AGWPJA and WPJA quarterly contests simultaneously:
11. Members may enter images already submitted in previous WPJA contests for the year, as long as the image(s) did not receive any recognition on the WPJA site. Members may not
enter the same image into simultaneous AGWPJA and WPJA quarterly contests.
