Quest 5 will be a photo contest. Willing naturalists will need to capture fuzzies (both wild and domesticated) in their natural environments.
Pictures should not contain any text (images only). You may submit up to 3 entries.
This quest is open to all registered Windstone forum members, regardless of where you live.
You do have a distinct advantage if you know what a Fuzzy is.
The Windstone staff will select the best 15 photos from among these entries. We will post these 15 finalists on the forum for you to vote on them.
(we will chose only one photo from each person for the final 15, to be fair )
The photo with the highest number of votes will win! We’ll also have 2nd and 3rd place prizes.
Contest starts today, 4/2 and entries will be accepted until 4/15 at 11 am.
Voting will take place from 4/30 until 5/4.
1. Originality: The more unique the photo, the better = 15%
2. Technical execution: Focus, exposure, and digital quality are important = 15%
3. Visual impact: Look for compelling subject matter and great composition and lighting = 20%
4. Relevance: Photos should be relevant to the theme, “Fuzzies in their Natural Habitats.” = 50%

As a clarification – you may capture (i.e. make) your own fuzzy – it does not have to be a fuzzy that came from Windstone.
Fuzzies are naturally occurring in the wild as well and may be hiding disguised as caterpillars, plants, bath mats, or in other every day items.
See the fuzzy forum for more information.

OOOO! Finaly something to do with this over sized fuzzy collection :3 This is going to be fun!April 3, 2012 at 7:44 pm #877716scenceableParticipant
Are only fuzzies allowed, or can we have windstones in the picture too?
Thanks, sounds like fun! 😀April 3, 2012 at 8:17 pm #877717
You can have a Windstone in the photo, but the internal judging will focus on the fuzzy. I can’t tell you what the voters will look at 🙂April 4, 2012 at 9:59 pm #877775PuffpastryofdoomParticipant

This is an awesome quest and even though school work is trying to kill me, and I am sooooo participating in this one. I just need to set up one more picture, then pick which ones out of all the different shots I have that I want to submit. I do hope “natural” habitat can be taken quite loosely. After all, who knows what fuzzies get up to when people aren’t around…April 11, 2012 at 10:44 pm #878184
I’ve gotten a few more, but not a ton. If you have sent yours in and haven’t gotten an email confirmation, please let me know! I’ve responded to everyone whose photos I’ve received!
Hope to see your entries!
