    so cool.
    but can you clarify the dates: "end in about a month" or "competition ends in Jan 10, 2010"?
    and i assume there's no submission limit?

  14. kazarareta
    kazarareta ·

    @boredbone - comp. ends in Jan 10, must be something wrong with our rumble timer at the moment. There's also no submission limit but you might be asked to have the mock-ups ready in case the jury would like them.

    @everyone: yes, digitally-made entries are accepted and stand an equal chance of winning!
    @pili_iker: sorry for getting back late, there's a 'submit photo' function at the top area of this post :)
    @steven-treglia: only the body, as this is going to be considered for production.

  28. rikkib
    rikkib ·

    Exactly which areas of the camera are customisable? (Besides the obvious ;)

  29. _xarone
    _xarone ·

    to submit the entries, can we just scan the template and submit? Or do we need to fold it into a camera and take a picture of it?

  30. pili_iker
    pili_iker ·

    I'm in! Very nice competition

  31. kazarareta
    kazarareta ·

    just a moment on your questions, will clarify :)

  32. kazarareta
    kazarareta ·

    ok so here's some clarifications:

    - If you're sending your entries in PDF format please send them to
    - It would be best to printout/fold the camera and take a picture of it
    - as for the customizable areas of the template you could go crazy with it, the jury will be suggesting revisions if ever we pick your entry(ies) for the shortlists!

    Rather than design an LCA I decided to use the template to build pinhole cameras - the first one I built was tested yesterday and took some great panoramic pictures. I have built Mk 2 & 3 today. Mk 2 is abit bigger and Mk3 is a triple pinhole. Will test them soon. Anywhere I can upload my photos?

    @sedate25 - adrian must have got them, he just doesn't have the time probably to manually send a confirmation mail. :) good luck to everyone!

  61. kazarareta
    kazarareta ·

    @jonasfx: the decisions will be decided upon entirely under a jury; as we need to make sure that the winning design's feasible for production, and that there's no vote-hogging and all sorts of stuff. :)
