Announcing the 2013 spintop photo contest
« on: March 19, 2013, 09:35:46 PM »

EDIT: The voting results are here: www.ta0.com/forum/index.php/topic,3145.0.html

=================

After the success of the 2010, 2011 and 2012 photo contests we will have another one this year. The prizes will be determined at a later day (maybe much later, I still have not decided the 2012 prize  :-\ ) but the main award is bragging rights and sharing a great photo. To be eligible, the photo needs to be somehow spintop related, taken in 2013, and either taken by a member of the board or featuring a member of the board. If the photographer is not a member the prize goes to the player in the photograph. Otherwise it goes to the photographer. The winner will be selected by a poll on the board. Deadline is December 31, 2013, 23:59:59 GMT-11.

That's it as far as rules. We recommend that those proposing a picture also give them a name/title/caption. This administrator reserves the right to give it a name or caption if none is given  ;D

Previous winners were:

2010: yocephus with Leggy Corkscrew
2011: Takeshi with Takeshi's World
2012: Neff with Top Face

Extra rule: Kyo is not eligible until he posts the photos from worlds 2012  ::)  ;)

The first picture entered for the contest is:

1. Cosmic Alignment by ta0 (Aldebaran, Moon, Jupiter, STB2, March 17th):

Excellent photo!  I think this will be a finalist . . .

Great to have you posting on the board, Keith! 
We have not yet met in person but you are on my list to include in the Figaro Gallery.

By the way, I loved the documentary about your circus.  8)

As long as the photograph is top-related, was taken this year, and either the photograph or the photographed is a member of the forum, it can be entered in the contest.
That is a good photograph for the contest, although probably not a finalist.  So if you can get a better photo before the end of the  year, please do.

It looks like this was taken in front of the Bandstand at Golden Gate Park.  I am assuming that this was taken at this years Bay Area Classic?  I couldn't make it this year.  Was there any Spintop related things going on other than this new YoYoJam Bull Dog DT(which is very cool looking by the way)?  Any of our board members there?

I had that monster top in my hands and I never thought I would see it spinning on a finger.  I still don't  ;)
