Oscar Fashion Photo Contest — T Minus 2 Days!

ofpc-2

When Jem and I got downstairs, and saw the limousine Conan had hired for us to get to the theatre, the best we could say was “Wow!”  A classic saloon car nearly as old as the Oscars themselves, and it was a beauty, never mind the driver that held the door open for us!

Two days to go before the Oscar Fashion Photo Contest opens up with the announcement and this year’s rules.  As I said yesterday, there aren’t any substantive changes to the rules this time around.  The only change will be to the duration — we’re adding on a week, since the Academy chooses to do the show so quickly these days.  (You used to have eight to ten weeks to do your shot; now you’re lucky to get seven.)  Two months is a bit of time, true.  But it gives everyone a chance to select gowns or suits, work up their looks, and find a place to shoot.  And we always expect good work from entrants; there’s a seven-year history of this, after all.

It also helps if you spread the word about the contest.  I’ve been running our little series of photos in every Flickr group I figured I could get away with it in, and so far nobody’s complained.  But it will still be a very good thing if you write up the contest yourself and link to the announcement and rules article on Sunday.  The more eyes that see this, the better; and this thing is really open to anyone with an SL avatar or two and a good eye and hand for doing quality photographic work.  If nothing else, you can link to the blog’s front page; the announcement will be sticky there until the contest closes.  Here’s hoping for a record-breaking year on submissions!
