Some great ideas so far.
I know coming up with ideas for these competitions that keep everyone happy is tough, Lets face it, competitions aren't fair. Certain comps will always benefit certain members. There is always someone who can take a better picture, has a better camera, better car, bigger collection, better modeling skills, more ideal weather, etc etc.
Wether each of us is able to enter every comp (I often skip some as I don't feel I can compete or really contribute). The spirit of these comps should always be to create more awesome photos for us all to look at that can both entertain us and maybe inspire our next projects.
I agree with the idea that this comp should be open to all makes. My biggest love is Tamiya, and that is why I am here, but I am also the guy who won a TC comp with the picture of a Kyosho.
Do with them what you will
I look forward to the announcement of the competition and hope that I can enter. If for some reason I can not then I hope that what ever theme that is chosen creates some great entries to look at that truly deserve the AWESOME prizes from our sponsors.
1. 3's company?
Group shot competition. Picture entered must have 3 cars in it with a cleaver theme / story to tie them together?
2. Models in motion
Best action shot of an R/C. Must only have one car in shot and car must be moving.
3. Happy holidays
Picture must have a holiday theme, could be Christmas, Hanukkah, etc. Picture can have as many models as you want but must have a holiday theme to tie them all together.
4. Best corner
Photo of your favorite runner taking a great corner (not kicking a ball, actually turning a corner). Can be On-Road or Off-Road but the car must be moving and turning.
5. Pit stop
A single picture of your car taking a pit stop. Could be in the Baja desert or at Leman, could be a refuel or a tire change, with or without crew present.
6. Custom build
Maximum of 6 pictures showing your best custom build. Again On-Road or Off-Road. Must be an R/C, or be made to be R/C.
7. Best photo
Anything goes, but must be a picture of an RC model.
8. Going for a swim
Best photo of you favorite R/C in or running through water - could be a puddle or a swimming pool (going to hurt anyone in a drought stricken area sorry)
9. More real than real
The most realistic photo of your favorite model. Model must be a based on an R/C but can be customised to look as real as possible. Photo & surroundings should also make the model look like it is as realistic as possible. Can be a static or running shot.
Some of the other ideas that have already been raised by other members are better than the above in my opinion, just thought I would throw these out for the guys who ultimately has to decide the theme.
OK I will leave it at that.
