Photo Contest #2: Unintended Uses

Category: Uncategorized @ 12:59 am

We know that many of you will be having some time off soon and we wanted to make sure you weren’t bored, so we’re launching our 2nd photo contest today. Use those new digital cameras you get as presents and recruit your relatives to help you with this one.

This photo challenge is to take a picture of an object being used for something other than its intended use. If you’re receiving gifts this time of year, we encourage you to come up with unintended uses for the presents you receive. However, your photo can involve any objects.

Please read the photo contest rules and instructions for uploading.

Standard contest rules also apply for this contest. By leaving an entry you are agreeing to those rules. We’re offering a variable prize for this contest.  The entry voted the favorite by the MM users will win its photographer an Amazon.com gift certificate worth $25 + the number of users that entered the contest (up to $100). So, if 75 people enter the contest, you can win the max prize.

Lastly, if you have creative friends and relatives, tell them about the contest and get them to join MM.  If they register, list your name in the "referral" field, and then win the contest, you’ll receive the exact same gift certificate prize that they do.

    This contest is going to last 3 weeks, so you’ll have plenty of time to take your photo or photos. But, you can feel free to start posting right away. Let me know if you need clarification on any of the rules.

    Remember, this one is just like our Halloween contest in that you must put “Mental Magma” somewhere in the photo.

    I forgot to put up a sign. However, you can see that Spumoni’s picture is up on the laptop.

    Sanitary pads. I guess to recognize that they are being used as tape is gender specific, sorry!

    Ooo.. please be careful… you’re one of my favorite Mental Magmanians – I’d hate for Life to be your downfall (pun intended:-))

    Thanks. I hope I won’t give in to the temptation of a younger, hotter avatar. This one has stood by me from the start.

  24. Jakutz Says:

    I lessen the other guy’s road rage against me with a nice “QUACK!” instead of a honk.
