Same Thing Daily flatland self portrait contest
« on: January 04, 2010, 07:39:26 PM »
UPDATE!!!!-  The contest deadline is Friday April 16th at midnight  EST, so when it turns Sat no photos will be considered.  There's not a huge number of entries so far so let's see some hustle people.  I am your high school flatland coach...

Hi kids, Same Thing Daily is holding a flatland self portrait contest in celebration of the upcoming video.  It's real simple, take a photo of yourself whilst doing a trick.  I'd like to ask that you actually go into the trick and take the photo without anyone's help, i.e. someone handing you your phone or camera.  That's the honesty part, we don't care if you actually pull it but please do it yourself!  I put my phone in my pocket.  That's how we did the examples below:

Brian Tunney, who started this ridiculousness last year.

There's no real criteria other than having fun and trying to see who can get the best photos and maybe some tricks that would be hard to shoot(like a death truck, or a bar endo).  Variety is important, and believe me it's harder than it looks.  The deadline will be around the release of the video, but that's still up in the air; basically you have several months, I'll announce an actual deadline when the video's release is likely.  3 winners will receive a free copy of the video(probably before it ships, ooohh)and maybe some other goodies.  If we somehow find out you cheated the one and only rule, no vid.  But let's forget that, this is about having fun on your bike.  There's no limit to the number of photos an individual posts, and our CEO's will be the judges.  Good luck and happy flatlanding!

post all the photos in this thread, i'd say if you take multiple photos of yourself just create a new post instead of editing an old one.

Do you qualify if papparazzi is on your shoulders already?

the qualities i'll look for as a judge are the photos being kinda centered.  just taking a photo while on one wheel isn't hard; taking it while actually trying to get yourself and your bike in the photo is.  the hitchhiker wasn't so hard, the 1/2 packer of me on the mankind prob took 20 tries b4 i thought it was good enough.  i would say the more different positions we see the better.  of course, the judging is going to be pretty subjective, knowing us we'll prob be drunk and pick the funniest one's we see at the time, then there will be an internet controversy on our crappy judging system and how crappy the floor was. 

fun matters...
