You've seen PolyTicks on Today's Toons. Now you can be part of PolyTicks!
The 2011 PolyTicks Model/Photo Contest
Here's your chance to be immortalized in a week's worth of PolyTicks comics. Here's what you will need:
* One (1) adult dressed in a professional-looking outfit
* Three (3) children
To enter the contest, take the following photographs indoors against a plain background with a solid color:
The adult standing on the right side of the frame with hands on hips... One child in left frame with hands outstretched as if making an excuse to the adult. The child is speaking.
The same adult and child from PHOTO #1, but the roles reversed. Now the child is standing with hands on hips while the adult is making an excuse to the child. The adult is speaking.
The adult is in the same pose as PHOTO #1 while three children stand on the left, making excuses to the adult. One of the children is speaking.
The adult is pointing a yardstick to the wall, as if teaching the three children looking at where the adult is pointing. The adult is speaking.
Same pose as PHOTO #4, except the children are speaking and the adult is holding the yardstick at his/her side and has an expression of disgust (example, rolling eyes).
The adult is holding an apple, showing it to the children. The adult is speaking.
Same as PHOTO #6, but the children are speaking and have expressions of anger.
The adult is giving the apple to one of the children. The other two children have expressions of surprise. The adult is speaking to the two children who did not get the apple.
The rules are simple. You must take all eight of the photos described above and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
by Monday February 28, 2011 at 7:00 am Eastern Time. The photos should be taken in horizontal format and should be in a 4:3 ratio, with a resolution of 800x600 pixels or greater. The photographer/submitter must include his/her name and hometown in the text of the email, along with a statement certifying that the photographs belong to the submitter and that they, upon submission, become the exclusive property of "PolyTicks, The Web Comic" and its owner. Indicate that all models appearing in the photographs and/or their legal guardians agree to the terms of release and publication. Remember to leave space in your photographs for text balloons for whomever is speaking in the frame.
Thank you and good luck. Tell your friends and watch Today's Toons by Pookie for the announcement of the winner and to see the final cartoons.
