Exclamation April '07 Photo Contest

Welcome to the April '07 AF Photo Contest!

Please do not post until April 1

...on that day a very exciting GRAND PRIZE will be revealed!


Other donors may PM me with their intention to donate to this months prize pool. I would love to award prizes to the top 3 winners. So give until it hurts.

This month will be a little different. I work at a fine art museum and have experienced lots of outstanding and outrageous photography. I appreciate all kinds of pictures and would like to open up this month to a wide range of creativity. The aesthetically perfect picture may not win this month. Feel free to frame and crop creatively. Collages, hand-colored or Photoshopped pics are okay too. Think outside the box Way outside if you want!

Rule #1: Have fun
Rule #2: Include a recognizable part of an Airstream
Rule #3: Maximum 4 pictures per person please (I hear page load times can get extreme for our speed challenged members)

Don't forget you may upload to a maximum size of 1024 x 1024 pixels (bigger is better)

Enjoy,

Steve

Since this month's photo theme is all about creativity I immediately thought of Texas artist Paige Bridges at Vintage Travel Trailer Art. I have long admired her artwork and once you see it I am certain that you will too! She has graciously agreed to donate a Large Format Airstream Print of the winners choosing! Please visit her website to see the great variety available. I promised Paige that I would frame it for the winner to current museum conservation standards. I forgot to ask but let's see if we can get Paige to sign it too.

AirstreamRaffle.com
aka The Botkins Community Improvement Corporation (BCIC), a non-profit 501(c) (3), is working with the Botkins Memorial Pool Committee (BMPC), for the primary purpose of renovating The Botkins Memorial Pool. They have agreed to donate a raffle ticket valued at $100 for a chance to win a
19' 2007 Airstream Safari Bambi (MSRP $36,848)

No foolin', this raffle has been confirmed legit! Kids gotta swim...and you could win Special thanks go to new forum member NGREVE for facilitating this outstanding donation!








It is the hope and expectation of our generous contributors that many of the visitors to the monthly photo contest thread will visit and spend money at their web sites. Please make a direct link from this post to their web site so that their tracking software will prove we do in fact visit. The VAP survives on donations alone and if you enjoy the show as much as I do you may be thinking it's time to make another donation




Thanks for your participation and support. Good luck to all...now be creative!

Steve

Towing two at a time (note UHaul's finest under the Airstream). This photo was taken in the rear view mirror of our truck, you can see the edge of the mirror to the left of the photo:

Let's try this one again

After first posting this on the March thread a couple of minutes ago and then realizing that this is April - hey no April Fool here - just slow to catch on today.....what can I say.

Anyway, this is our usual camping grouping with about 1/4 of the trailers and tow vehicles visible. I'm so far the only Airstream but I'm hoping to convert others. My car is one of the newer ones with quite a few thirties, a few forties and a few fifties, then some sixties. It makes for interesting conversations at the campgrounds.

In the spirit of giving back to the game...

I will sweeten the prize pot for the month of April with these (2) flamingo cups. They are safe for travel being made of acrylic and the perfect happy hour size...unless your happy hour is a martini! Winner to PM me at the end of the month & I will send them out to you ~

Good luck to one & all!

Shari
