Post The BritNerf 3rd Anniversary Photo Competition  Reply with quote
Owing to the fantastic entries we received last year, the A&M team have decided to bring back the photo comp. This year we are going to try something different.

Introducing the 2014 BritNerf 'NERFie' competition.



Everybody has taken a 'selfie' at some point, but have you ever taken a 'NERFie'?

Quote:
Selfie (n.):
A photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website.

Nerfie (n.):
A photograph that one has taken of oneself accompanied by a Nerf blaster. Typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to BritNerf.co.uk.


Simply take a photo of yourself with your Nerf blasters and post it below. It's that simple.
The photo must be taken by yourself at arms length and must have a Nerf theme. Points will be awarded for creativity and originality so go nuts. You can disguise yourself if you wish.

The closing date will be 18th October so everybody has plenty of time to get their entries in.

The winner of the 2014 BritNerf NERFie cometition will receive a 'Blade' Rapidstrike supplied by UKNerfWar.com and built and painted by OldNoob using parts supplied by Blastersmiths UK Ltd. The forum has never seen a collaborative effort like this so the winner will receive a truly awesome prize. (It hasn't been built yet but we will post an image here when it's all done.)



2 runners up will receive an Elite Demolisher courtesy of Hasbro UK.


T's&C's

One entry per person. You are welcome to change your mind throughout the course of the competition, simply edit your post to change your photo.
At 23.59 (BST) on 18th October 2014 the topic will be locked and the judging process will begin. We will not accept any entries after this time.
International members are welcome to enter but if you live somewhere really remote, you may be asked to contribute a little towards the postage fee.
The prize is what it is. There is no cash alternative or anything.
Photos containing sensitive or adult material will be removed.
Duck face is optional.

I'll submit my entry in this post so consider this a place holder. I plan to take it Friday evening in full battle gear.

Question: since I'm contributing to the prize but not judging the winner, can I enter and still win? I want to know if I should go to serious lengths for this one.

Also, multiple people in said Nerfie? Do we have to split prize or is it the one who posts the entry that wins?

Finally, it's here........

I still think I could do better, but the deadline falls closer and closer and its taken an age to get one this good!

I give you.....(drum roll)......

The 'Hit me if you can' Nerfie!



I jumped up in several wars and yelled ' Hit me if you can' while taking my nerfie.

This is the best because A) It shows me getting hit in the cheek and B) it has 8 darts flying past me (including the one hitting my cheek).

The most i got in one nerfie was 11 flying darts as i caught more people firing at me, but i didn't bring my masterkey up in time to get into the photo and me head was lower so it wasn't as good.

I was being hit by 4 flywheels and an EAT at the time.

EDIT: This may have 9 flying darts. There is a Blue blur in the bottom left corner.

I say go balls out (not literally). We can decide whether you qualify for entry later.

At least you weren't breast feeding it!

On a moderator note, could you resize it smaller?

Now I notice that the official Nerf Facebook page has stolen UKNWs genius idea....

I signed up for the contest but I might stick around, there appears to be a lot more discussion and activity that the Aussie Nerf forum at the moment. Smile

EDIT

I've snipped, re hosted and resized your pic for you. In future please limit your images to 640x480 on your hosting site. In the future, large images will be removed. Thanks

There are some great entries here guys and we are very proud of you all.

Oweing to the fact that I am away until the middle of September (and therefore, can't hand out prizes until I return), the A&M team have decided to move the closing date of the competition.

The new closing date is 1st October so you have a few extra weeks to get your entries in.

If you have already posted a pic, you can always change it as much as you like, provided that you edit your OP and replace the photo rather than creating a new post.

Come on guys, let's see some more crazy NERFies!
