|2004 INFAMOUS PAIPO PHOTO CONTEST
Official Rules and Gibberish
|PRIZES! PRIZES! PRIZES!
Reflecting the place of the paipo riders in contemporary surf culture, prizes will be small, cheap, and meaningless...other than they signify that winning photos reflect the true spirit of surfing or caught the judges eye between drinks.
In the spirit of fairness there will be a panel of three judges. At least two will have to agree for winners to be chosen. I figure two out of three ain't bad...
Photos must be taken with a waterproof camera, preferably a $10 disposeable single use camera.
Photos must be taken by a non-waterproof camera of any type.
The judges will be drunk. Possibly very drunk. So study and learn these rules and regulations.
There is absolutely no restriction or standard for subject matter, composition, clarity, technical skill, or taste. None whatsoever. That said, one must remember this is a surfing-based website, so some surf content might help. It also might not. There is much more to life than surfing, and the judges will be easily distracted. Soul, humor, luck, creativity...all these things will count more than reasonably believeable.
It will probably help if you write a caption to accompany your submissions. The more entertaining, the better. Same goes for the photos.
Contest period: August 31 - November 15, 2004
Photos must be taken/developed during that period.
THEY ALSO MUST BE SUBMITTED AND IN-HOUSE BY THE END OF NOVEMBER 15TH.

Submission in any form constitutes permission to publish and reprint on vagabondsurf.com. All other rights remain with photographer. vagabondsurf.com reserves the right to edit photos to protect the innocent and the guilty.
Every effort will be made to protect and return prints, but common sense says accidents happen. DON'T SEND ANYTHING ORIGINAL OF ONE OF A KIND OR PRICELESS PHOTOS!
Send a copy or a scan. With these new photos, if you might catch something you really want to keep, it's fairly cheap to have double prints made.
