    A big congrats to all the winners and hopefully this will have a carry on effect to get more entries to our next competition..


    ******1st PRIZE TERMS AND CONDITIONS******

    "Air Thaddeus is pleased to offer the winner a photographic helicopter flight above Sydney. We'll zoom over the harbour bridge, past the beaches and dodge 747s as they lumber into Sydney Airport. The flight is ex-Bankstown and only available to those who weigh not more than Leek. If you are too heavy or live interstate, you may nominate an different person to take the flight. Scheduling will depend on mutual availability and weather. Air Thaddeus reserves the right to get the shits if you cancel at the last minute or act as if this is some kind of commercial transaction, which it isn't. Air Thaddeus assumes no responsibility for death, disability, air-sickness, deep vein thrombosis, hiccups, flatulence or other misadventure suffered in the course of receiving the prize. Air Thaddeus recommends using something like an 18-70mm lens, circular polariser and wearing dark, non-patterned clothing when photographing from the helicopter."

    Less than one week left. I'm looking forward to seeing the results from the deranged, sorry, creative minds that dwell here. Good luck to all the entrants.
    Later,

    Well there won't be much to see at the moment as there are only 2 entries and they are both from the same entrant. Not much interest...Not sure why either??

    Can we extend this and throw it open to existing eye photos ?

    Taking a photo on a theme in a month can be difficult if you are working.

    Or just extend the comp and make it run for 2 months. It just gives a bit more time for planning and shooting.

    I have the glasses I need for my photos I just need a good face to put them on.

    I hope to get something in before the closing period. Have you guys had any more entries yet? I hope that more interest is sparked in the next week. With Birddy as a sponsor it is always worth entering a competition. He comes up with really great prizes.

    To be honest, I haven't even thought about the comp. Definitely a good thing if it is semi-regularly bumped so that it's in the front of people's faces.

    I don't know if I will get a chance to do something for this one, but hopefully I'll keep my eyes peeled for the next one at least :)

    I have already had my eye peeled, (and photographed) I am not going to do that again.

    Healthy life and I do not inhabit the same universe :D

    I am sitting here eating chocolate and drinking coffee.

    Margo bought me over a kilo of chocolate at the Cadburys factory in Tasmania when she was down there.

    Do you think she is trying to get rid of me :?
